Now that fall is well underway, cozy season is officially here. And if you have folks in your life who live for this time of year, the best cozy gifts are in order. We're talking fuzzy jackets, boots with warm socks, and Trader Joe's Harvest Blend tea until the foreseeable future (although you can always be cozy even in the spring and summer—there are no rules in the land of cozy).
The best cozy clothing gifts
Whether you’re planning a day indoors or headed to the gym on a chilly morning, this fleece jacket is here to keep you warm and toasty. Made with 100 percent recycled fleece, this pullover is super soft to the touch and has a relaxed silhouette for layering styles underneath. Just pair it with your favorite pair of leggings or throw it on with some joggers for an elevated street style look.
There’s a reason why everyone talks about these leggings. The Align leggings are made with lululemon’s proprietary Nulu fabric, which feels like a butter cloud (yeah, we just made that up). Light, almost like you’re not wearing anything, but soft to the touch, like you’ve got the snuggliest pajamas on. There’s just enough compression to help support you in yoga, but you won’t ever feel constricted if you’re just chilling on the couch watching White Lotus. With 23 colors to choose from, the 28”s are just long enough to cover those ankles. You can’t go wrong with these.
No more sleeping in old sweats. Sleepwear just got a little bit more luxurious, thanks to these Quince mulberry silk pajamas. The pants also have a side slit for breathability, which is a huge plus for anyone who runs hot during the night. You can also get a matching silk pajama tee to complete your ensemble. Huge bonus: They’re washer-friendly!
This was recently spotted on Hilary Duff, who is “obsessed” with not only how cozy this fleece jacket is, but how awesome it is that 1 percent of its proceeds to go toward the non-profit org, Girls Inc. It comes in 17 different colors, and is the perfect, loose sweater to wrap yourself in when you want to feel like you’re wearing a blanket.
Swoveralls are exactly what you’d think they’d be: Sweater overalls! Made from a soft (and GOTS-certified) cotton material that’s as comfortable as it is durable (and totally washer and dryer-friendly), these ultra-cozy overalls are perfect for all-day lounging, running errands, walking the dog, and other leisure activities. If self-care was an outfit, it’d be this. They come in four colors.
If you’ve already exhausted your Zoom-ready looks, this Zesica turtleneck may be just want you need to give your WFH wardrobe a refresh. Made with soft acrylic fabric, this sweater is slightly oversized yet still fitted enough that you can tuck into a pair of jeans. It’s also Well+Good editor-approved (our sr. commerce editor refuses to take it off).
We can’t stop gushing about the always-selling-out Jenni Kayne Cable Cocoon cardigan—and that’s because it provides best-in-class snuggles while delivering on effortless elegance and class. Made from baby alpaca wool, merino wool, and a touch of nylon for some give, everything from the beautiful lofty horn oversized buttons, to the oversized fit makes this the perfect-for-anything sweater this fall and winter. It comes in four different colors.
These grip socks are the perfect gift for your yoga or pilates-loving friend. The natural fine cotton yarn they’re made from is as cozy and breathable as it is excellent at absorbing sweat that could cause mid-stretch slipping. They’re also decked out with elastic arch support for compression and functionality, have padded foot beds for extra cushion and comfort, and they’re machine washable. The set of seven pairs comes in different colors with inspirational messages across the top.
If you want to zhuzh up your fall wardrobe, it’s all in the accessories. And this cable knit scarf is just the right combination of style and functionality to keep you warm on a chilly day. Made with French merino-based soft yarn, this chunky-style infinity scarf is handmade and comes in eight different colors including black, cream and camel.
Walk around your house in style with these UGG slingback sandals. Made with 100 percent cozy shearling material, these sandal-slippers have a built-in platform on the heel for added height and an elastic band around the ankle for stability. The rubber sole also allows you to wear them outside if you’re hoping to knock out a few errands on the weekend.
If feel like shutting everyone out and having a lazy Sunday morning, do it in style with this Repose loungewear set. Made with hypoallergenic cotton, the oversized top and bottom are lightweight and have a lot of stretch for maximum comfort. The material is also super soft and breathable which is a win for sensitive skin and hot sleepers.
Winter is coming, and you don’t want your ears to be cold do you? That’s why this beanie from The North Face is one to clock on your radar. Not only is this cable-knit hat warm but it also is pretty roomy for those who like to wear their hats low on their brow.
With over 2,000 five-star reviews, these Trendoux are a fan-favorite—and for good reason. In addition to keeping your hands from freezing in painfully cold weather, the gloves are also touchscreen-enabled and anti-slip so that you can use your phone without ever having to take your gloves off. This one especially makes for a good stocking stuffer since you can roll ’em up.
Inspired by the Maya Angelou poem and founded by VP Kamala Harris’ niece, Meena Harris, Phenomenal Woman offers supremely soft sweaters and shirts with messaging that’ll make you feel empowered and badass. This one is for the ambitious person in your life you want to lift up (and drape in coziness, of course).
Sure, bras are an intimate gift—so this one can be for yourself. See, the problem with bras is that a lot of they have wires and feel like medieval torture devices. Not ThirdLove’s—they’re one of our favorite brands because they’re designed for actual comfort, support, and good looks. (You really can have it all, sometimes.) This bralette is breathable, comfy, and pretty, too. We can actually vouch for all of ThirdLove’s wireless bras—they’re the next best thing to wearing nothing at all.
Give the gift of cloud-like pajamas that feel luxurious and look luxurious. They come in five preppy and mint candy colors that work year-round, but give you extra warmth during the colder months. Made of 100 percent poplin cotton (a fancy way of saying “fancy cotton” that will last you forever), this long, button-up shirt and pant set has a loose fit (true to size) for utmost comfort in bed or on the couch. Make sure to machine-wash with like colors with other delicates and lay flat to dry.
They won’t be able to take this cardigan off, thanks to its soft material (an organic cotton and modal fleece), long length, and wrap closure. It offers a comfortable, loose fit that looks gorgeous with any outfit and it’s made in a Fair Trade Certified factory. Choose from warm colors like Mocha Bisque (a burnt sienna), Incense (beige), Cameo Rose (light pink), and more.
Socks never have to be boring. In our humble opinion, socks make the greatest gifts, because everyone wears them—especially homebodies. We love these beautiful patterns from Pact, a brand that crafts the most high-quality socks for all wants and needs. Made of organic cotton, this pack of three hits the calf mid-way, features flat knit toe seams for extra comfort and perfect fit, and they’re designed to *not* shrink in the wash.
Best cozy sleep and bedding gifts
If you’ve ever wanted to wear a blanket as a sweatshirt, look no further. This Comfy blanket jacket is a staple makes staying warm throughout cold nights a breeze. The Shark Tank product is one-size-fits-all and features sherpa-lining with a hood to keep you forever toasty.
When it comes to weighted blankets that can actually help improve your sleep quality, Gravity doesn’t disappoint. The brand’s weighted blanket has become a fan-favorite thanks to its high quality and comfortable (read: not too heavy) feel. It features a removable micro-fleece duvet cover and glass beads inside to help gently weigh it down. Not to mention, in a study conducted by the retailer, 72 percent of people reported “deeper, more restful sleep” when using the blanket.
It’s Oprah’s favorite bedding brand for a reason. And it gets the name “Cozy Earth” because the brand makes quite possibly the coziest sheets on, well, Earth. We’ve tried and tested the bamboo and linen sheets, and both are equally “I never want to get out of bed” good. For those who like a silkier, more lightweight type of bedding, we highly recommend the bamboo sheet set, which is made from 100 percent premium viscose bamboo fabric. With this set, you get 1 flat sheet, 1 fitted sheet, and 2 pillowcases. The fitted sheet has a generous give, so even if you have a thicker mattress, you won’t have to worry about it sliding off in the middle of the night.
Instead of wearing your cardigan at home to keep you warm, bundle up in this Turkish cotton robe for protection against the cool air. It has an incredible plush feel to keep you extra toasty and a roomy fit to allow for more range of movement. Wear it on an overnight trip at your Airbnb, or when you just want to enjoy a night of binge-watching Netflix on the couch.
While it’s a little pricey, this pillow may well be worth the extra coins. It features the same technology used in the brand’s mattresses. Specifically, the pillow has a honeycomb-patterned cushioning to give your neck and head much-needed support. Side sleeper or not, it automatically forms to your head to take off pressure from your upper body.
If your giftee is the type of person who needs total darkness before they’re able to doze off, then this eye mask may be calling their name. Its mulberry silk fabric helps protect your hair and skin from damage and covers eyes in a (light-blocking) cloud before they begin to sleep into dreamland.
If you’re looking to change out your sheets this season, look no further. Upgrade the quality of your sheets this winter with these colorful sheets from L.L.Bean. Made from 100 percent flannel, this sheet set feels like a pair of pajamas, and they’re lightweight too, according to multiple reviewers. Not to mention, they’re resistant to shrinking, fading and pilling.
During those extra chilly nights, turn on this heated blanket to stay toasty. It comes with three different heat settings ranging from 95 to 115 degrees, and a 10-foot cord for you to use it in large spaces. Additionally, it has an auto shut-off feature and is easy to clean. Just detach the controller and toss the blanket into the wash.
Best beauty and self-care gifts
Foria is known for their sensual CBD oils you can incorporate during sex or solo playtime, but they also make CBD bath salts that are absolutely heavenly. Pour some salts into your bath, and feel the tension in your muscles truly melt away. These Relief bath salts are formulated with THC-free CBD and botanicals.
Need a mask you can throw on while you binge-watch old episodes of The Office? Derm-fave brand Three Ships has an ultra-nourishing and sensitive skin-friendly rosehip French clay mask that you can leave on while you binge-watch your favorite shows or get some serious reading time in the tub (it’s recommended you leave it on for ten minutes, but we’ve accidentally left it for 45 and nothing bad happened). The rosehip extract hydrates while the vitamin C brightens, and the formula overall helps minimize sun damage and fine lines.
For the softest hands and feet in all the land, this 54Thrones African Beauty Butter collection will serve you well. Formulated with rich shea butter, baobab oil, and jojoba oil, the consistency of this moisturizer is balm-like (like, very, very thick) and locks in hydration for hours. There’s truly a reason why Well+Good editors can’t stop applying this stuff throughout the day (and why we don’t have a scratchy elbow in sight), and why Oprah named this as one of her favorite products in 2020. Oh, and the scents are absolutely heavenly (our favorite of the set is Kenyan Hibiscus + Moroccan Rose).
When you’re thinking about a having a treat yo’self day, consider doing so with this Peter Thomas Roth face mask. It’s a type of three-in-one exfoliating treatment that helps to smooth and brighten uneven and dull skin. It does this using three key ingredients pumpkin enzyme, alpha hydroxy acid and alpha hydroxy acid, all of which are help smooth the skin’s surface and help improve the appearance of uneven skin texture.
Calm your mind before bed with this aromatherapy spray that even tennis star Venus Williams uses. The spray uses all vegan and natural ingredients like lavender and chamomile, which can help calm the mind and reset the body. Just spray some into the air or onto your pillow to let the relaxation and de-stressing begin.
It’s like Rosie Jane just GETS us. One of the buzziest perfume launches of the year, this scent was inspired by nostalgic trips the mall. Think vanilla body lotion you’d beg your mom for, but in a grown-up, elevated form. Dulce is a joyful fragrance that features vanilla, hinoki wood, and nude musk notes that smell perfectly sweet and smoky. The description on the site (“long kisses, mixtapes & sweet dreams”) is pretty perfect—take it from us, we’ve been wearing it all season long. Spritz and chill.
If you know your person loves a good book and a warm mug of tea, then get them the subscription of their dreams: the Read, Relax, & Recharge box that lets you choose from a romance, fiction, or mystery/thriller, and a hot beverage of choice (tea, coffee, or hot cocoa). Each month you’ll get a surprise book and brew, along with accessories like candles, oils, chocolates, and more. It’s the ultimate cozy treat they’ll love getting in the mail.
Okay, yes, it’s an $80 pillowcase. But here us out: This pillowcase was created to fight fine lines and wrinkles thanks to it being woven with copper fibers (which, in some clinical trials, show the ability to treat aging skin). We personally tested this pillowcase here at Well+Good for months and found that it really did leave our skin smoother and more supple in the morning. It also helps keep hair smooth (and elongates any blowouts and fights frizz). So, for the person who loves their beauty sleep and their beauty, get them this anti-aging pillowcase. It’s the best of all worlds.
Best cozy home gifts
This isn’t like the other mugs, it’s a cool mug. It’s what you use when you want to sip on some hot tea in style. As one five-star reviewer out it: “The intricate and beautiful design on these mugs pops in real life…the gold accents sparkle so much more than you can see from the photo and make it feel so luxe! I adore seeing these when I wake up in the morning and the monogrammed initials make it perfectly personalized! Love love love.”
Keep your living space constantly warm in the winter months with this incredibly handy Lasko space heater. It comes fully assembled with a remote control to adjust the two temperature settings and eight-hour timer. Use it to warm up an entire bedroom, living room or any other space that ends up getting a cool draft.
For when you want to transform your living room into that snow cabin in the woods you dream of one day owning like the sad family from This Is Us (except your life would be way less tragic, obviously), get Yankee Candle Cozy Cabin Escape. It smells like a fire burning in the dead of winter—that cold, fresh snow smell paired with charred wood, roasted pecans, gooey marshmallows, and hints of salted caramel. It’s perfect. Burn time is 110 to 150 hours, so this candle will last days and days.
Make your space feel like the spa! All you need is an essential oil diffuser and some essential oils (these are our favorites—and they’re easy on the wallet). This one is only $25 and it comes with a 300 ml water tank, seven different LED light colors to choose from, mist timer modes, as well as an auto-shutoff feature which is great for those of us who are paranoid about leaving on devices and accidentally burning the house down.
The best cozy food gifts
If it feels like popcorn is having a moment, then you’re absolutely correct. Brands like Opopop are…popping up and giving us more options, variety, and flavor in our bowls—and we love to see it (and eat it). Give the ultimate popcorn collection to a friend (or to yourself), which comes with flavor wrapped popcorn kernel flavors and peel + pour popcorn cup flavors. You’ll get 10 different flavors including Lightly Salted, Vanilla Vanilla, Salted Caramel, and Like Buddahh. It also comes with the Opopop microwave popper, which enhances the taste (and solves the issue of always needing a bowl). Now all you need to do is pick a show or movie to stream.
Lord Jones’ premium CBD gumdrops are handcrafted with wild berries and broad-spectrum hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) which helps promote relaxation, and can alleviate pain, stress, and insomnia. While more studies around CBD need to done, a lot of folks enjoy popping a CBD gummy or tincture for some high-free chilling. Each gumdrop contains 20mg (and there are nine per box).
Nothing like a Sunday (or any day) afternoon where you enjoy snacking some delicious cookies. This variety pack is available as a four or eight-pack and comes with all the soft-baked cookie flavors: Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Brownie, Cookie Butter, and Lemon.
If cozy = a mug of freshly brewed coffee every single day (and maybe multiple times a day), then you should gift yourself a coffee subscription that allows you to sample various blends and origins every month. Bean Box curates sustainable, best-in-class coffee (ground or whole bean) and sends it to straight to your doorstep. Try coffee from all around the world—pick how much and how often (and you can pause or stop it at any time).
Originally $30, now $23
If you’re a tea person, then there’s likely little on this Earth that’s cozier than a cup of hot tea steaming on your nightstand or on the coffee table as you snuggle up on a chilly night. We love DavidsTea for its unique flavors (like Cardamom French Toast, Orange Spice, and a wintry Silent Night), but also for its high-quality tea leaves. This is the perfect 12-tin sampler that’ll get you through the dreariest months (each tin is good enough for at least two servings!).
This Stagg Pro Electric Kettle will help you enjoy the ultimate cup of coffee or tea at home. It has analog and digital displays, and you can set your temperature to the exact degree, as well as schedule the kettle ahead of time so your hot water is ready when you are. And the sleek design will look great on any countertop.
Best cozy pet gifts
When we think of good gifts, we think of the things people will likely not buy for themselves because it may be too lavish, a little over-the-top, or expensive. This Barefoot Dreams dog turtleneck sweater is all three of those things, and we also know for sure that their dog won’t be buying this for themselves, either. So, if your giftee has a dog they absolutely adore and spoil, this sweater (fits extra-small to large-size dogs) is a unique and thoughtful pick. They’ll likely thank you with a very adorable holiday photo when the time comes.
This shag, donut-shaped bed is designed to let your dog or cat snuggle inside for warm comfort. It’s made with vegan faux shag fur, has a soft filling, and has a raised rim to let them rest their head. It comes in small to XXL sizes, but unfortunately not big enough sizes for humans.
Whether you're looking for a pair of leggings to kick back in, or some candles to set the mood, there is a sea of styles to add to your cozy collection during the cooler months ahead.
