    You know those cosy night suits you love to cuddle up in an Emirates flight? Well, to get that level of cosiness on a chilly winter night, I've picked an oh-so-warm throw blanket from Saasha World. Tuck yourself into this heavenly piece of fabric and make your sofa/bed the comfiest zone in your home.  

    Apart from the functionality, this high-end throw also serves as a rustic decor piece for your living room if adorned well on your sofa with a couple of cushions. 

    Tip: while washing it, it's recommended to use fabric softer to retain its softness.

    This is one of the easiest ways to infuse some #HolidayVibes. While you can pick any pair (or five) from this collection, I've picked these royal green patterned socks, as they also give a Christmasy vibe. I prefer Dynamocks's socks as they are basically warm hugs for your feet.

    Everyone's favourite winter beverage - hot chocolate is not just a drink, it's an emotion (and is PYAAR)! Make cafe-style hot chocolate using Sarah's Cocoa's hot chocolate blends that range from dark chocolate to classic cinnamon. I've picked the marshmallow one, as marshmallow + hot chocolate = best combo. 

    Tip: add a pinch of salt to your hot chocolate to enhance the flavours.
