If you happened to experience the "bomb cyclone" on the east coast at the beginning of January, you'll know the realness that is not only the want, but the actual need, to imminently hibernate with your partner. It's the perfect time of year to get cozy, lounge around bingeing every TV show you've been dying to get into, play some board games, drink some wine, but most important, DO NOT leave your house or apartment. We'd say order in, but heck, with another snow monstrosity like the one we just experienced even Seamless may let you down. Meaning first and foremost make sure you make a run to stock up on key ingredients for some yummy home cooked meals (or Trader Joe's delicacies) at the start of the weekend!
Some other non-listed but equally essential items for a snuggly weekend with your boo? Number one: A good book (for when you don't feel like you can watch any more TV, or when you hand the remote over to your partner because you need a breather in the other room). Number two: super snug socks that can double as slippers (we especially love those bulky chenille ones that you're embarrassed you own, but can never seem to part with). And finally, either your favorite wine du jour OR ingredients to make a warm drink—like a hot toddy or mulled wine…heck, even making the mulled wine will add another level of comfort with all those delicious aromas!
So snuggle up and read on for our six top things to make sure you have for a cozy weekend in!
