With blustery snow storms afoot, many of us are spending a lot of time indoors these days. Instead of stressing over the numerous projects and goals you could be accomplishing, why not make the most of these frosty days by taking some much-needed down time? Here are some of our favorite snow day essentials to curl up with:

01. Apotheke Co. Soy Candle in “Woods”Made with 100 percent natural soy wax, the Apotheke Co. Soy Candle in “Woods” offers a pure, clean burning fragrance reminiscent of a brisk walk through the alpine forest. Indulge your senses with this distinct woodsy aroma laced with whispers of oak, cedar, lavender, and fruit oils.


02.  Bellocq Breakfast Tea Awaken your senses with a full-bodied blend of organic Indian, Chinese, and Ceylon black tea handcrafted in Greenwich Village. The Bellocq Breakfast tea is deeply satisfying by itself—but a dash of milk or wildflower honey never hurt anyone!

03. Enamelware Tea Pot Enamelware—where function and form meet. This shatter-proof, non-stick enamelware tea pot actively retains heat and prevents odor absorption. It will serve as a great couch companion as you cuddle up to a warm fireplace.

04. Faribault Lodge ThrowBased in Minnesota, Faribault Woolen Mills has been crafting heirloom blankets since 1825. Cozy up in your favorite nook with one of these beautiful, lifetime-quality fringe throws and a good book for a genuinely restful afternoon.

05. Aesop “Breathless” Botanical Treatment OilHydrate your parched skin with this sophisticated blend of sweet almond, macadamia, orange, and jojoba oils. Spot treatments on the elbows and feet will leave your skin feeling silky soft, while enveloping you in an invigorating aroma of citrus and wood.

06. Nakiska Shearling Slippers These wool shearling slippers are crafted for durability yet gently mold to the shape of your feet. They are perfect for lounging around in your jammies as you revel in the frosty morning hours.

07. Babaton Beekman SweaterKeep warm by cuddling up in this long, fluted cardigan crafted from lush boucle yarn. The rustic cream color will match most pieces in your wardrobe, allowing for a quick morning routine and sheer comfort throughout the day.
