Here are some of our favorite ways to stay warm during the winter. (UPDATED!)
A roaring fire – But since we don’t all have a wood-burning fire place, the rest of us can watch this eight-hour YouTube video of a roaring fire, complete with tranquil crackling sounds. I feel warmer already.
Candy cane cocoa – perfect for sipping by that roaring fire.
Area rugs – Experts agree that an area rug can add insulation to a hard wood or tile floor. Floors account for as much as 10% of heat loss if they’re not insulated, according to the National Energy Foundation (NEF). We have a huge selection of braided jute rugs, woven rugs and hooked rugs to add warmth –and character– to your home this winter.
Bake cookies – Extra calories provide the energy you need to stay warm when it’s cold, and while they’re baking, you can hover near the warmth of your oven.
