The bitter cold of winter can keep everyone indoors. Having a warm, welcoming place to gather is key.
An overstuffed sofa by the fire with snuggly blankets and fun pillows begs you to kick off your snow boots, relax,
and enjoy your mug of cocoa.
    Don’t forget the aromatics! Potpourri keeps the house smelling great, and scented candles add a warm glow while tantalizing the nose with various invigorating or relaxing scents.
    When you have to step outside, wrap up tight in a beautiful cashmere scarf. You can even gather outside around the fire pit and roast marshmallows for s’mores! It’s easy to keep the dark days of winter at bay when you have all the things to stay warm and cozy with your loved ones.
