In the last couple of weeks, we all spent more time on the couch than we thought it’s even possible and unfortunately the end is still far away. So it’s time to face it – we all need to turn our flats into the perfect place for a comfortable night in with your favourite documentary. The Danish already perfected Hygge, it is our turn now!
We can all use something which helps ease our stress and anxiety and helps us fall asleep. Weighted blankets provide a sensation of being hugged which shown to increase the level of serotonin (happy hormones) and melatonin (hormone that regulates sleep-wake cycle), and also releases cortisol (stress hormone).
Keep in mind when picking out the blanket that it has to be as heavy as 10% of your weight to be see the change in your sleep and anxiety.
These weighted blankets are made of 100% stonewashed linen fabric and filled with glass beads. Glass beads create an earthly and unique sound when moving the blanket. This is the most environmentally friendly blanket you ever had.
Price starts from £67 but the heavier the blanket you need, the pricier it gets.
What is a good movie night without some popcorn? I have one of the hot air corn poppers for years and I love it. It doesn’t require any fats so it’s a low calorie treat for the evenings.
I don’t know about you but I regularly manage to spill my bevarage on the couch while tryint to get cosy. Plus hugging my glass gets my wine warm too quickly, so having an insulated wine glass with a lid saves quite a bit of washing and cleaning. It’s also great for picnics, the beach or in the office when you want to pretend that you are having coffee – not like I would ever do that!
These amazing glow in the dark wine tumblers with a customer text and custom blood splatter will set you back £18.64 but will become a forever favourite for those cozy evenings.
Are you going alcohol-free for the night? I commend you! But is there anything better than the smell of a lovely gin and tonic or a glass of wine? I thought so. Luckily there is a solution to have your cake and eat it too – Gin & Tonic scented candle!
These upcycled and handmade candles are made with slow-burning soy vax and will light up any room (just as every victim on every Forensic File episode, ever!)
These yummies start from £11.76
