With the arrival of autumn, the newly dark mornings and chilly mists see us diving under the duvet in an attempt to stay snuggled up in hibernation until the sun decides to emerge. But fear not - autumn can be a glorious time, of bonfires, woodland walks and - of course - our favourite hot gin cocktails! So how can we make the most of the colder, wetter months? By introducing a touch of ‘hygge’ to the home!
Here are a few of our favourite gin gifts - or ways to treat yourself - to make sure you stay warm, cosy and wrapped in gin all autumn and winter long!
Nothing creates a cosy atmosphere better than the warm glow from a flickering candle - particularly when it fills your home with the gently delicious aroma of… gin!
Getting cosy is all about snuggling on the sofa, so grab one of these soft pillow cushions and curl up with your favourite gin and tonic and a good box set!
After a long day in heels or tight work shoes, trudging through the rain, all we want is to pop on some snuggly socks. These fun toe-warmers for gin lovers also have a handy message for your loved ones…
Look, once the bad weather sets in for autumn and winter, all bets are off when it comes to what we’re wearing around the house. Pyjamas at 4pm? Totally acceptable. You could even host a Pyjama Gin Party with your gin pals - no judgement here, folks.
HOT WATER BOTTLES
We wouldn’t usually recommend taking your gin to bed with you, but we’ll make an exception for these fun - and oh-so-cosy - gin-themed hot water bottles!
Keep your feet warm in these super-comfy slippers that have been designed with the gin lover in mind.
Throws & Blankets
If you’ve got a garden gin bar or favoured spot outside for your G&T, there’s no need to abandon it in the colder months! Wrap yourself up in one of these cosy throws and blankets and pay tribute to your favourite tipple at the same time.
Our go-to clothing items in autumn? Wooly scarf, bobble hat, and - of course - a cosy gin-lover’s jumper!
When the nights draw in and the frosts begin to nip at our nose, we all turn to a warming cuppa for comfort… but you know what’s even more cosy than a cup of tea? It’s a teapot full of delicious hot gin cocktails!
