The cold season is close. But how to make it more cozy for you in your home? It will not only put you in the perfect mood for Christmas but also make you the perfect place to try betting sport.
#1 Hot water bottle made of natural rubber

A hot water bottle doesn’t just help when you’re sick. Quickly filled with hot water from the kettle, it provides warmth for many hours. It fits comfortably on the couch and before going to bed you can put it under the covers to warm up the bed. It is best to give each family member their own hot water bottle.
#2 Merino wool thermal underwear

“There is no such thing as bad weather, there is only bad clothing”. With the right bodywear, you can reach your comfortable temperature even without heating. The best choice is long underwear that you can comfortably put on under your normal clothes. A very good material for this is merino wool – no synthetic material can match the heat-regulating and self-cleaning properties of the natural fiber.
Unfortunately, especially merino wool is strongly criticized, because in most cases it is accompanied by the animal-cruel practice of mulesing.
#3 Vegan organic cotton arm warmers

For anyone who sits at the computer a lot at home or clutches their phone or e-book for hours – and quickly gets cold hands – arm warmers can work real wonders. Because wearing gloves is impractical in such cases. Instead, warm the pulse and the warmth rises to the fingers!
#4 Organic cuddly blanket with Tencel
Here the name says it all: cuddly blanket from Kushel.
What you need this winter in any case is a cozy blanket, if not several!
#5 Poncho made from recycled cashmere wool
Poncho “Elisabetta” from Rifo
Since you can only walk around the apartment with a cuddly blanket awkwardly, we recommend you additionally a poncho. You can easily wear this throw over your clothes. The Italian label Rifó specializes in recycled materials and makes this poncho from recycled cashmere wool. Here, textile scraps are collected and spun into thread again.
#6 Stainless steel thermos bottle
Thermos bottle from Ecotanka
In England, they know: “A cup of tea solves everything”. And that’s guaranteed to apply to outside temperatures below 13 degrees. We recommend you always keep a thermos bottle with an unsweetened and decaffeinated hot beverage on the table during this non-heating season.
#7 Carpet from virgin sheep wool
Carpet from virgin wool
Carpeting your home will insulate you from heat and sound – it will also increase your comfort during the cold season.
Carpets made from natural fibers are all the rage. Here you can find vegan rugs made from sustainable materials like sisal as well as (the even cozier option) from virgin sheep’s wool.
#8 Bathroom mat (toilet seat)
For some, it’s especially “painful” when the bathroom is cold. Good thing we don’t still have to run outside to the commode when the temperatures are like this! To make yourself a little more comfortable in the bathroom even without heating, you can dress up your bathroom with a variety of mats, rugs, and covers. There are even such goofy things as toilet seat covers or knitted (and even electric!) toilet paper warmers – but we can’t necessarily recommend these for sustainability reasons.
#9 Microwave heating pads
Spelled pillows are a good heat retainer and can be quickly heated in the microwave (1.5 minutes at 600 watts). It can be used as a back pillow, belly pillow, foot warmer, or bed warmer. And it will always keep you warm.
