It might still be fall but winter is looming with just a few short weeks away—and experts are already predicting that it'll be colder and snowier than usual. That paired with the current pandemic means we'll likely be spending even more time bundled up inside our homes.
To make your time inside even cozier and more comfortable, we've rounded up 12 soft and snuggly products that have thousands of positive reviews that you can buy online. From the Barefoot Dreams cardigan everyone is obsessed with to the weighted blanket with more than 20,000 reviews, these are some of the internet's coziest picks that will help you make it through even the chilliest of winter days.
1. The wildly popular Barefoot Dreams cardigan
You might not be able to be Chrissy Teigen, but you can live like her—or at least you can wear the cardigan from the brand behind Mrs. Legend's favorite throw blanket. This Barefoot Dreams cardigan, which has more than 3,500 reviews on Nordstrom, frequently sells out and is praised for its super soft fabric and flattering yet relaxed fit.
2. This cult-favorite blanket sweatshirt
The day I bought The Comfy is the day I realized I never have to be cold in my house again. Half hoodie, half blanket, The Comfy is lined with the plushest sherpa and is the most comfortable—and most convenient—way to essentially wear your favorite throw around the house. I also love that it has a roomy hood along with a large front pocket that is perfect for carrying snacks, phones, etc.
3. These celebrity-approved Ugg slippers
What do Selena Gomez, Madonna, and Gigi Hadid all have in common? They're all big fans of the Ugg Fluff Yeah slippers. And they aren't alone—the sherpa slides have more than 4,000 reviews on Amazon. People rave that wearing these popular Uggs feels like walking on clouds and they like that the breathable open-toe design prevents your feet from getting overly warm.
4. This weighted blanket with over 20,000 reviews
A weighted blanket is exactly what your bed is missing. They're incredibly comforting thanks to the added pressure of weighted beads and can help reduce stress and anxiety as well as make you sleep better. While the best weighted blanket we've ever tested here at Reviewed is the Gravity blanket, this more affordable option is the most popular one on Amazon and still one of our favorites. Its 20,000-plus reviewers like that the blanket has a soft exterior that's warm yet breathable and that the weight of the blanket contours to your body as you sleep.
5. This chunky knit sweater from Amazon
Don't want to spend $100-plus on the Barefoot Dreams cardigan? According to more than 6,000 Amazon shoppers, you can get an equally cozy sweater for less than $25. This knit cardigan has an impressive 4.5-star rating for its slouchy fit that's perfect for lounging and that its soft material that isn't itchy or too heavy (i.e. it's just right).
6. This candle that sounds like an actual fire
The only thing cozier than a candle is a candle that crackles like a roaring fire in the fireplace. That's exactly what the popular WoodWick candles do, thanks to their natural wooden wicks that sound just like a real fire while they burn. This "magnolia" scented one has received over 6,000 glowing reviews for its pleasant scent and comforting sounds.
7. This cozy teddy coat
Teddy coats were all the rage last winter—and given how comfy and cute they are, we predict they'll be equally as popular this year. While there are plenty to shop online, this one from Amazon is one of the highest-rated and most-bought on the site. According to its 6,500-plus reviewers, the jacket is super soft to the touch and is oversized enough that it fits perfectly over other layers.
8. These fuzzy socks
If you've never slipped your feet into a pair of warm fuzzy socks straight from the dryer, you haven't lived. Of all the fuzzy socks out there (or at least of all the ones on Amazon), these are the most popular with thousands of 5-star reviews. Fans love that the socks are thick enough to be worn as a cozy alternative to slippers, yet thin enough to be worn in shoes or boots.
9. These fleece-lined leggings
Leggings are known for being comfortable, yes, but they aren't exactly known for being warm. Unless you buy these ones, that is. Lined with the coziest fleece, they come in two sizes (small/medium and large/x-large) and a rainbow of colors. They've gotten high marks for their warm, yet lightweight (a.k.a. not bulky) fabric and flattering wide waistband and seamless design.
10. The Parachute bathrobe everyone is obsessed with
As one of Parachute's best-selling items with more than 1,200 reviews, this bathrobe is arguably one of the fluffiest, softest ones you can buy. One of our writers tried it out for herself and found it to be just as amazing as it claimed to be. She especially loves the thick, plush Turkish cotton that the robe is made out of, which she says is both absorbent and warm.
11. This pom pom beanie
You can be bundled up to the nines, but if your head is cold, all the coats and layers in the world won't help. Enter this cable knit beanie, which has more than 5,200 reviews on Amazon. Besides the fact that it has a trendy faux fur pom pom on top, people also like that the hat is well-made and lined with soft fleece for extra warmth.
12. These top-rated flannel sheets
Eddie Bauer offers a lot more than just parkas and hiking gear—the outdoor recreation brand also has some of the most snuggle-worthy sheets. These flannel ones, which come in every size from twin to king, have more than 4,000 reviews on Amazon with people raving how warm and comfortable they are. People also like that they last for a long time, with one person saying he's been using his for nine years and they're still holding up incredibly well.
