If you’re anything like us, your social calendar is rapidly being filled with festive plans and merriment with your loved ones. However, there’s nothing quite as indulgent as a night in, regardless of whether that’s spent alone, alongside your partner and family. Want to plan one of your own? Here’s the essentials you should be investing in whilst making plans.
Cosy cashmere for a hint of luxury
Just because you’re at home, it doesn’t mean you need to sport your tired old pyjamas. Level up your comfortable look with a touch of cashmere. Soft-to-touch, premium (without being too much) and just the right amount of luxe, consider a jumpsuit, sweater, or cardigan as an essential layer.
A blanket to snuggle up under
Slippers, not shoes
Why waste time in an uncomfortable pair of shoes when instead, you could be embracing all things snug in some slippers instead? Lined in sheepskin and crafted with shearling, they’re the ultimate partner to a thick knitted pair of socks of an evening.
Candles for some ambience
As soon as autumn arrives, it’s officially candle season in our eyes. As we slowly edge into winter (eek), the more the better. Regardless of your preference of scent and aesthetic, natural or bold, there’s plenty to suit from the likes of WoodWick, Wax Lyrical and Bahoma. Just simply light your favourite, and enjoy the subtle flicker that follows.
Glasses (and your favourite wine)

…Or a mug for some hot chocolate
Not one for wine? A hot chocolate is the perfect substitute in order to combat the chill. Get festive with a Christmas mug from Spode, or invest in that forever piece from Le Creuset to ensure every sip brings a little joy.
A cheese board – naturally
Now we’ve got drinks covered, what about food? For ultimate decadence (and ease, a cheese board elegantly displayed on a serving platter works best, plus – the lack of necessity for preparation means washing up is kept to a minimum.
Some luxe linens to fall asleep between
Stuffed after all that cheese and wine? It’s no surprise. Rest easy and sink into the ultimate cosy nights slumber between some fresh sheets – it’s the perfect end to your winter night in…
