There’s so much to love about winter: the beauty of fresh snow, the pretty holiday lights, the cold temperatures as an excuse to stay home all the time. Even if you’re more of a summer person, you have to admit it’s incredibly satisfying to get cozy by the fire on a winter day and watch Netflix for too many hours without worrying about getting dressed or being social.

As you might be able to tell, cozy is my preferred state in the wintertime, which is why I think everyone should own these 14 items that will help you stay warm and comfy all through the season.

1. A luxurious faux-fur throw blanket
