I’m not a huge fan of winter – salty slush & icy sidewalks & frozen eyelashes are not my friends. But there is something to be said for the magic of a White Christmas – twinkly lights are just so extra-special when reflected in an untouched snowfall – and that snowy chill in the air makes you want to curl up next to a fire with a mug of hot cocoa (Bailey’s optional) and a good book or knitting in hand. The holiday season brings with it a desire to hunker down and get cozy – so here are some cozy things to make, bake or buy this holiday season and all winter long. Wrap them up and slide under the tree – or be a little selfish and give yourself the gift of coziness – we won’t tell if you don’t share this time!
