This Christmas I really upped my lounge game. To be clear, it was pretty intense already, but thanks to my various wish lists I racked up two more robes (!), a pair of warm slippers, and cotton modal pajama bottoms. It was a really good Christmas.
So this gift guide is all about crafting the perfect lounge-time.* More deets below:
Anthropologie Faux Fur Slippers: I saw that these were recommended on a website and I immediately added them to my wish list. Who knows? Maybe my toddler would even let me wear them.
Books, coffee, winter, sofa by Eveline Mug: This mug expresses everything about my dream sedentary winter life. I also have a thing for mugs in general, so this looks perfect.
Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn: If you think that you might possibly like romance novels but you haven't read Julia Quinn, you HAVE to read her books. I'm including her latest solo publication, Because of Miss Bridgerton, but you can't go wrong regardless of which of her books you pick up. She's famous for focusing on the Bridgerton siblings and each story is as swoon-worthy, sweet, and smile-inducing as the next. I get the warm and fuzzies just thinking about them.
Kentucky is My Land T-Shirt: A perfect shirt for all Kentucky-lovers. KyforKy offers lots of different t-shirt options but this one caught my eye. They have adorable socks, too (insert face with heart eyes emoji here).
Victoria's Secret The Dreamer Flannel Pajama: I don't have this particular pajama set from Victoria's Secret, but I do have many others, including a long, gray t-shirt that my husband Daniel says reminds him of Danny Devito's character on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Nice, sweetheart. But these pajamas look super cozy, and I can envision myself being very comfortable reading, watching tv, and/or drinking my morning coffee in them.
iRobot Roomba 650 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner: You guys, I don't have one of these, but it's on my wish list. That seems like a very "adult" thing to have on one's wish list, you say? Yes. It is. I have a toddler and two dogs (one weighs around 75 lbs. and one weighs around 130 lbs.) and my floors get messy. It sounds amazing to wear comfy clothes, sit on my couch, and let a robot clean my floors.
Happy Endings Seasons 1-3: I love this show. So much. This was a really good show that had fantatic fans but still managed to get cancelled by ABC. Wah wah. It focuses on a group of friends living in Chicago and is perfect for millenials. So cute! (If you watch Happy Endings you'll get the reference.) The show is hilarious, quirky, and New Girlesque. It's available to stream through Hulu or you can buy the dvds (see the link).
The New York Times: I don't subscribe to any newspapers. Like most people (I would guess), I get almost all of my news online for free. But I always, always appreciate The New York Times articles that I read and I agree with the editorialists who have argued that now, more than ever, we need to support newspapers which provide legitimate and truthful news. I might be subscribing in the near future.
What's on your lounge list?
