The cool weather is upon us, and we think that’s worth celebrating. What better way to embrace winter than by investing in a few winter warmers? Here’s what we’re loving this season.

  1. Hot coffee served in our favourite mug: the Drapeau mug ($59, www.tutuhome.shop
  2. Bush walks – check out our bushwalking guides here and here.
  3. Weighted blankets like this hand woven one by Calming Blankets ($309, www.calmingblankets.com.au
  4. Cosying up by the fire (if you don’t have your own, outsource at one of these spots)
  5. … And enjoying a good book as you do it! ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ by Delia Owens is our current page-turner.
  6. Hot baths with nourishing bath oil, like this one from Le Labo ($48, www.lelabofragrances.com.au)
  7. Our favourite albums on the record player – this Crosley one is a great start ($189.95, www.universalstore.com
  8. Movie nights watching one of these classic flicks
  9. The softest slippers, á la these Classic Mini Boots by Ugg ($69, www.kogan.com)
