Let’s be honest with ourselves, who doesn’t love that cozy Christmas feeling?? It’s the best to get cozy on your couch or in your home, especially when the weather starts to get cold! Everyone has their own tricks to feeling cozy, everyone is different. But this post will give you a rundown of how to get that cozy Christmas feeling, from wearing a well-accessorized sweater to lighting a candle!!

How to Get that Cozy Christmas Feeling

Setting the Scene

Setting the scene is exactly how it sounds—you need to make your home or apartment cozy before you can get cozy. This could be as easy as turning the heat on instead of the air conditioning. Or you could have more fun with it!

My favorite way to get that cozy Christmas feeling is to decorate. This is also the most complicated and potentially expensive way to feel cozy. You can get creative and go the DIY route or you can buy Christmas decorations. I personally do a combo of the two. Try decorating a small Christmas tree, hang fairy lights, hang ornaments from the ceiling, put up a wreath, you name it! Here are some Christmas decorating DIY ideas:

Another way to make your environment feel cozy for Christmas is to light candles! I absolutely love candles, especially Christmas-scented candles. Some Christmas scents I suggest are spruce tree, Christmas cookies, apple or spiced apple, pumpkin pie, fresh snow scents, cranberries, thyme, etc.! Just go wherever it is you buy your candles and ask to see their Christmas or holiday line!

Looking the Part

The final step to getting all cozied-up for Christmas is to look the part. So, get out your favorite sweaters, comfortable pants, slippers, fuzzy socks and check out the mini LookBook below for some inspiration and cozy ideas as well as an awesome holiday discount!!

The ideal Cozy outfit consists of a comfortable sweater, comfortable pants, either fuzzy sock or slippers, and beautiful accessories. These accessories are important because it is easy to feel lazy instead of comfy without them. A great cozy outfit needs simple and elegant accessories to remain cozy instead of lazy or slumpy.

Means of Giving

Amongst all this joy and wonder, it is also important to recognize that this is not the case for everyone. Not everyone feels blessed and joyful this time of year and this is important to recognize. Here I would like to share some great charities for the holidays.

MAP International

MAP International provides medicines, prevents disease, and promotes health in some of the world’s poorest communities. They also provide immediate assistance and relief aid to people after disasters.

Oxfam America Unwrapped

These guys provide practical gifts to those in need and simultaneously send a card to a loved one.

Heifer International

Like Oxfam, Heifer allows you to pick a gift that is practical such as a cow or beehive.

Family Holiday Association

This association provides a holiday or vacation for “families struggling with issues such as disability, severe and sudden illness, bereavement, mental health issues and domestic violence.”
