Brrrrr! We don’t know about you, Qwerkiteers, but we’ve broken out our winter gear this week! Here are some of our favourite snuggly things to keep the cold at bay.
We all know the dilemma: you’re wrapped under a blanket on the sofa, and it’s a toss-up as to whether you’re prepared to get chilly again by taking your arms out of the blanket nest so you can drink your cup of tea or if you sit and watch said tea get cold while you stay warm. Whoever came up with the idea of adding sleeves to a blanket is an absolute genius, and we salute them. Snug Rug for the win(ter).
Not only are these fingerless gloves super snuggly with their fleece lining, they’re available in three different styles (Berry, Navy, or Natural). Handmade in Nepal, these wool gloves are perfect if there’s something of a chill in your office. Some of us at Qwerkity HQ like to wear them while driving, so our hands are nice and toasty!
Owl Hand Warmer
We don’t give a hoot about the cold when we have this little guy to snuggle with! He’s so soft and cuddly, and he has a pocket for you to slip your hands in to warm up. He’ll also double up as cushion. This sleepy looking fella makes the perfect cuddle companion.
It may be a “Matter of Loaf and Death” if you don’t have this cuddly Gromit Hottie. Filled with lavender and millet seeds, he heats up in the microwave as a snuggly alternative to a hot water bottle. The lavender scent and warmth will help your little ones (or you!) fall asleep in no time.
We’re fast moving in to log fire season, and this Fireside Companion Set will help to keep your hearth tidy. The set includes a metal ash shovel, hearth brush, poker and long heavy-duty gauntlets to protect your hands. There’s also a wrought iron stand to hang all your new tools on. Come on, baby – light your fire!
Keep your fire lighting tools to hand with this Scandinavian style Kindling Bucket. Minimalist but stylish, the bucket is ideal not only for storing your kindling, but also for keeping firelighters and old newspapers in.
With the cold comes talk of Christmas, and this Santa hat is perfect for the run up to winter’s highlight! The knitted beard will keep your face wonderfully warm and cosy; it’s ideal for a stroll on a chilly day (and if your face is getting too warm, you can detach the beard!).
