As the days and evenings get chillier, we are breaking down the easiest ways to keep yourself warm – without reaching for the heating thermostat.
Winter is truly here, and with Christmas just around the corner, it is no surprise the temperature is plummeting across the UK.
The cold days and evenings can cause a huge spike in heating bills for many households, something that we all could ideally do without.
Of course, there are ways you can keep yourself warm in the house without popping the heating on – and we've got a run down of the best tips here.
These wearable blanket hoodies are perfect for the winter months. When you notice yourself heading to the thermostat, just pop one on and you'll be cosy and warm for the evening.
They may be made for outdoors, but we swear by a pair of Uggs for around the house. Not only will they give your feet great support when you're getting things done in the house, they will stop you reaching for the radiator knob.
If you're feeling a little bit chilly when you hit the hay, pop this heated blanket under your sheets and switch on for 10 minutes. You'll feel your whole body warming up, making for a perfect night of sleep.
Sometimes a normal hot water bottle is not enough. The long hot water bottles by Revitale will ensure the majority of your body is covered, creating a more effective way of warming up.
Another great way to stay warm is to drink hot beverages. The Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser is the only product you need for making delicious hot chocolates that warm you from the inside out.
Heat your entire body up with a relaxing bubble bath. Make your bath even more enjoyable with this amazing bath soak by Neal's Yard Remedies.
Keeping your feet warm is the most important way to stop yourself from getting chilly. If you find yourself with cold toes, these microwavable slippers will sort you out in minutes.
If you're not a fan of slippers, make sure to invest in some good-quality thick socks like this knitted pair by Mint Velvet.
