7 Simple steps to a cosy night in

We are now midway through winter, the colder days and the darker nights are well and truly here but slowly now should start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But whilst we wait for the days to get a little brighter why not plan a cosy night in.

One of the things I love about Winter is getting the fluffy blankets out, lighting the candles and snuggling on the sofa. It’s the perfect excuse for a cosy night in.

After a busy week at work or busy days sorting the kids its a great way to spend an evening. No need to sort a babysitters or decide on what to wear, I love a lazy night in. (I think I’m getting old)

It brings comfort and calm to our ever busy lives and is a breath of fresh air to relax and unwind.

Here are my simple ideas to create a perfect cosy night in.

  1. A snuggly blankett
  2. A great movie or tv series to get lost in
  3. A good bottle of wine or a big cup of hot chocolate.
  4. Big fluffy jumper and socks
  5. Light the candles – softer more romantic lighting, or fairy lights bring a cosy glow to any room.
  6. Yummy food – a take away or a home cooked meal some yummy food is essential.
  7. The people you spend it with – whether it’s your husband partner or inviting friends over, you could even enjoy a movie night with the kids. If you are in need of a little “me” time grab your favourite book and snuggle up on the sofa.

Do you like the idea of staying ? Is staying in the new going out. What would you put on your list for the perfect night in ??

Until next time

    Hi Caroline,

    This sounds idyllic in my head, the kind of evenings I imagine the hubby and I having after the children have grown up and left home. We try for these now. But often end up with blankets turning into forts and food smeared over faces, but these are magical in their own way and are special memories.

    I think I may have to organise a sleepover at Nanny and Grandada for the boys and have a lovely evening in like this for us. A perfect way to have some none expensive couple time.

    It’s interesting that you say that because lately I have noticed that everyone around me opted to spend the Holidays/ New Year’s Eve just like that. Staying in is the new going out.

      I find its the best time to spend with friends and family. Eating drinking and spending time together I love it !!

    Oooh, just reading this has made me feel all cosy! I love lighting candles, drives my husband potty though!

    Staying in is definitely the new going out! Going out when it’s so cold outside doesn’t appeal at all, whereas the idea of a snuggly blanket and a good book definitely appeals!

    Yes tie wruthing!! There’s nothing like a big snuggly blanket and some comfort food!!

    I love nothing more than cosy nights in, even here in Portugal. The only thing we can’t do (and miss terribly) is a takeaway!
