Winter Essentials: Staycation Must-Haves


There's no doubt that winter is upon us and the only way to survive is to embrace it! And by embrace it, I mean fill your house with a few essentials and dream of warmer days. Creating a cozy at-home atmosphere is critical to survive the tempermental outdoors because coming home to a cozy oasis makes trekking through the arctic all the more bearable! Below are 5 must-haves that make commuting in frigid temperatures more enjoyable and much more rewarding. 


1. Saavy Naturals Vanilla & Kukui Coconut Wax Candle 


Few things are more satisfying than the perfect candle. This Vanilla & Kukui scent is warm, authentic and lets off just the right amount of all-natural scent. Formulated with 100% pure essential oils, you need not worry about any toxins, including phthalates, propellants, sulphates and every other offending additive. 


2. Pure Linen Throw Blanket


Throw blankets are the epitome of fashion-meets-function. A chic addition to any room, they're also essential to creating a cozy atmosphere for you and your guests. Our Pure linen throws are made of 100% European Flax making them a timeless, high-quality fixture in your home. They're finished with a fringe for extra detailing and are machine washable, which in my opinion, is non-negotiable. 


3. ChocoSol Aztec Blood Drinking Chocolate


If drinking blood didn't catch your attention I have no idea what will! What sounds more inviting on a dark and stormy night than a cozy cup of blood, right? Just kidding. ChocoSol's version of blood means drinking chocolate made with 5 chilies and achiote making it the perfect complement to a frigid night. 


4. Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Treatment Mask


Face masks are the hallmark of all things staycation. For good reason, too! Often overlooked in the skincare world, masks provide much needed nourishment to dull and dry skin. This Burt's Bees option is great for winter as its formulated to not only hydrate the skin, but help your skin retain moisture in the future. If you're going to be indoors for the next few months, you might as well make it fun and productive! Come spring, you can emerge from your cocoon with glowing, rejuvenated skin. 


5. Simply Choices Simply Protein Chips, Herb Flavour 


Last, but definitely not least, come the staycation snacks! One can't plan an effective at-home holiday without stocking the cupboards with healthy, yet satisfying treats. These crispy protein-rich pea chips are a great alternative to not-so heart-healthy fried chips. Each bag provides 15 grams of protein and has only 140 calories! So call your friends, grab some board games, and enjoy your hibernation.
