We're saying it: cozy gifts are the best Christmas gifts. There really is nothing like receiving something that amplifies your comfort, especially now that we're all spending so much time at home.  

This year, we'd recommend swapping out all those extravagant tech and experience gifts for something to be enjoyed at home on a cold, dark winter night, from the best scented candles and wellness gifts to chic loungewear and pajamas. In a year filled with even more crazy chaos and anxiety, all we really want to feel is calm and relaxed as we enter 2022, and what better way to do that than in a cozy environment? 

Help your friends, family and loved ones create just that by giving them a cozy gift this Christmas. To help you get started, here's some gift inspiration that'll no doubt put a smile on anyone's face, be it your mom or a colleague.
