Tips for Keeping Warm this Winter

Staying cosy from head to toe over Christmas

It may well be the most wonderful time of the year, but it also tends to be the most chilly time of the year! So let’s take a look at some of the ways you can stay warm and snuggly during the festive period.

Turn Up The Heat

There’s nothing nicer during those cold winter nights than snuggling up on the sofa with your family. Couple that with a classic festive film like the brilliant It’s A Wonderful Life and a lovely open fire and you’ve got the ingredients for a perfect evening.

You might also want to turn up the central heating a few degrees, but it’s worth keeping an eye on the cost. With smart meters becoming more commonplace, it’s easy to see how much extra you’re paying during the winter for that extra warmth, so it allows you to be a bit more careful!

Upgrade Your Winter Wardrobe

Spending money by turning up the central heating is one way of keeping toasty on those cold nights. A more flexible and fashionable way of staying warm is by investing in some good quality winter clothing and footwear.

If you’re out and about on those cold Winter days a good quality padded coat, gloves, furry hat and quilted boots is hard to beat. But if you’re planning a night in there’s nothing cosier than a furry dressing gown and a pair of fleece slippers!

There’s a wide range of styles available with an equally wide range of price points. We’ve found that you can get a good combination of style and value for the whole family online at specialist retailers such as uppersole.com. They stock a wide range of indoor and outdoor footwear in a variety of styles that are ideal for the Winter season.

Festive Tipples

Christmas is the perfect time of year to indulge in some seasonal food and drink options. A nice warning roast dinner, Winter stew or casserole is a tasty and effective way of staying warm when the temperature drops.

Let’s not forget some of the festive drinks that appear during the Winter. Whilst hot chocolate is a favourite throughout the year, the Christmas period sees a whole host of specials to try – black cherry and gingerbread to name just a few! You might also add in a dash of liquor to spice things up. Talking of spice, no Christmas would be complete without a glass or two of mulled wine to keep the cold at bay!

Socialise

Christmas is all about being with family and friends. Even on the coldest of days, filling up your house with your nearest and dearest, playing some party games and letting the conversation, buffet food and drinks flow will warm you all up in no time! 

So there you have it. Even when the temperatures drop outside you can still have a happy, warm and wonderful Christmas inside with the family. It really is the most wonderful time of the year.
