15 Much-Needed Cosy Items To Help Us Survive This Grim And Nasty Winter


So Winter has swiftly thrust herself upon us once more, as she always does, and yes, it’s pretty bloody crap out. It seems like the rain hasn’t stopped in forever and your thermal vests all have holes from overuse.

But, all is not lost. The good people of the world have manufactured some amazingly comfy items that we all need so dearly in our lives. Some have even pushed the boat out even further with some ground-breaking new ideas. People are good. We like people.

Here is our pick of the best 15 out there…

1. These outrageously enormous blankets

Made by using human hands as knitting needles (no, really) these woollen creations are everything you could want from a blanket and more.

2. The mermaid tail blanket 

Embrace your inner Ariel and dive into a sea of pleasure. 

3. The twosie

For those who love the onesie and its glorious ways, but also want to cop a feel.

4. The kitten onesie complete with feline holding pouch

For the cat lover in your lives (or for the non-cat lovers, that pouch can hold snacks too).

5. The bear sleeping bag

Ever feel like Winter just wasn’t for you? Or feel like the human race hasn’t copped on to what a luxury hibernation could be?

You are not alone, my friend. Hibernation is alive and well with this full sized bear sleeping bag. And we couldn’t be more excited by the prospect.
