and about cozy gifts you can give to your loved ones this Christmas
Because really, is there anything better in the world than being cozy?
The answer is no.
No, there is not.
(By the way, my 6 year old is constantly saying “Let’s get cozy and snuggle up.” I want to freeze him at just this age and this sweetness level immediately.)
So yes, we love being cozy at our house.
And I totally lol’d when I saw this e-card.
Although I have to say, it’s never a struggle for me, the answer is ALWAYS pajamas.
Actually, for me, the answer is always my blardigan.
AND SPEAKING OF BLARDIGAN!
That’s what we are giving away today for our
FIVE DAYS OF FABULOUS series!
A HUGE THANK YOU to the people at Barefoot Dreams (the maker of the blardigan) for giving 5 blardigans away to our readers! (To be clear, the people at Barefoot Dreams call them cozy chic light wraps. It’s just me that calls them blardigans.) 🙂
If “blardigan” was a real word and could be found in the dictionary, I’m quite sure it would say this:
blardigan – noun
part blanket, part cardigan, and the absolute coziest item of clothing you will ever have on your body. EVER. in your whole life. EVER.
If you were around last year reading the blog, you know that I not only named the blardigan a MUST HAVE…I also made it a Santa Alert.
Because the ONLY thing better than getting a blardigan is GIVING a blardigan.
If you are new to the blog and know not of which I speak, you need to know about it. Promise.
This makes A PERFECT (seriously PERFECT) gift for your mom, your mother-in-law, your sister, you grandmother, etc.Yes, it’s expensive ($90), but I can pretty much promise you they will wear it AT LEAST 200 out of 365 days a year. They will wear it at home constantly, but if they are like me (and lots of other readers), they will also wear it out of the house with jeans and leggings.
Several weeks ago I mentioned that I wanted those of you that had blardigans to instagram a picture of yourself in the blardigan with the hashtag #blardiganlove.
I’m going to leave this instagram contest open through the weekend (so get to instagramming your pics withe the hashtag, then on Monday I will announce a winner (prize will be announced then too).
Look at all of you girls LOVIN’ your blardigans!
Here are several of my favs!
The winner will be chosen randomly through a random number generator from all # entries received through Sunday at 9:00 p.m.!
And check THESE out. They are from the maker of the blardigan.
What should we call them?
Whatever we call them, they need to get on my body asap.
Okay, so we when talking about COZY things….
we obviously had to talk about the blardigan….
but we also need to talk about slippers!
So when Nordstrom asked me to talk about slippers for the entire family, I of course knew it would fit perfectly into this COZY post! And they have such a large selection, I knew I would be able to find a pair for everybody!
Cozy and DARLING.
And you should know that they’ve been to school drop off for the little man more than a couple of times. Okay, like 4/5 days a week, these slippers are on my feet when I walk Carter up to school.
So I got THESE for the little man!
And I got THESE for the hubby!
And Nordstrom is price-matching, so the hubby’s are ONLY $25.67 right now!
Such an easy gift to throw under the tree for your guy! A gift that he will appreciate and use!
And we all absolutely love our slippers.
We are totally THAT family that strips out of our street clothes and changes into comfy clothes the moment we come home. But even on those days that I don’t make it totally into my pajamas right after getting home, I always take off my shoes and slip these babies on my feet.
What can I say?
We are a family that appreciates being cozy.
And check out that precious dog in the pic. 🙂
Carter loves his (found HERE) because they stay on his feet and I don’t mind if he goes outside in them for a little bit.
Chris loves his (found HERE) because you just slip into them (he prefers to not have a heel) and he too can easily run outside to the mailbox or whatever.
If you would like to get slippers for your peeps, I’ve got a round up for you!
For the ladies in your life:
For the men in your life:
For the boys in your life:
For the girls in your life:
1) They are cozy.
3) They are so cozy.
4) They will make your loved one happy every single night they slip their feet into them.
5) I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but COZY.
6) Slippers totally span all ages. Your 94 year old grandmother would love a pair of new slippers just as much as your teenage son. There aren’t many gifts you can say that about.
I also just ordered myself THESE pajamas at the advice of a reader.
I hoped to have them by today’s post, but no such luck.
Maybe you would want to consider giving a blardigan and a pair of slippers…or a pair of pajamas and a pair of slippers?
Check out women’s pajamas under $100 HERE, men’s pajamas under $100 HERE, and kid’s pajamas under $50 HERE.
I hope today’s post has shown you how great it would be to
GIVE THE GIFT OF COZY THIS YEAR!
And if you want to, before you go, click HERE to see what else Barefoot Dreams (the maker of the blardigan) has to offer….including luxurious throws, warm blankets, and robes.
ahhhh! HOLD UP!
I can’t believe I almost didn’t talk about this next item in my COZY post
Basically, if a blardigan is a robe that you can wear out of the house,
Uggs are slippers you can wear out of the house.
I can’t believe it took me 32 years of living on this planet (ahem) to buy myself a pair of UGGs.
And as all of my friends and hubby can tell you…I have a hard time taking them off right now.
That’s right, I’m wearing them morning, noon, and night.
I got THESE cardy lattice UGGs.
Need something to throw on with sweatpants to drop the little man off at school in the morning?
I grab my UGGs.
Need something to wear when I’m going to lunch with a friend and we are going to be strolling the downtown square (and it’s windy and cold)?
I grab my UGGs.
Need the perfect footwear to throw on with my MUST HAVE leggings (ALSO crazy cozy)?
I do have a funny story to tell you about the outfit I have on in the picture above.
Yesterday I met a friend for lunch (she was college besties with some of my high school besties at A&M, and we’ve just become great friends through them…love you Alli!), and when I was walking across the square to meet her, a sweet lady said the following to me:
“It looks like you stepped straight out of Pinterest!”
I could hardly believe it!
I thought perhaps she read the blog and was just being funny, but she had no idea about the blog and truly just thought that I looked Pinterest-ish!
I MEAN. Hilarious.
Anyhoo. Uggs. I love mine.
But if you don’t like the cardy lattice Uggs, here are more Uggs for you to choose from:
a) bailey button HERE / b) bailey bow HERE / c) classic tall HERE / d) exotic short boot HERE /
Two more things before you go:
