The Best Cozy Gifts for 2021: Stay Warm and Feel Cozy


Ready for cooler weather, crisp air, and pumpkin spice lattes? Can’t wait for everything cozy and warm? Here are some of the best cozy gifts. 

The temperatures will soon drop – thankfully – and the priority will be to say warm and cozy. The moment the temperature drops under 70, I’m freezing. Of course, that’s because I’m weak after living in Los Angeles for so many years. Fall and winter have me pulling out my coziest sweaters from the back of the closet.

On cold days, there is nothing more comforting than slipping on a pair of fuzzy slippers and crawling under the pile of throw blankets. Add a fireplace and some hot chocolate, we are golden.

When Fall and Christmas comes around, my favorite gifts to give are the things that scream, “it’s time to get cozy warm!”

Cozy Gifts for 2021

Cozy Gifts For Her

  • Cozy Jacket or sweater
  • Soft socks
  • Coloring book
  • Chocolate
  • Bath bombs
  • Hand and/or foot spa products

If you love sherpa anything, then you know that it is the ultimate of cozy anything. If she loves to snuggle, I’m pretty sure she will love this teddy jacket.

I recently got a teddy jacket for myself, it’s super plush, soft and warm. The jacket feels like a teddy has its arms wrapped around you keeping you nice and cozy. It’s a great quality one, too. I saw them all over Target recently and they were not as nice as the one I got online.

Here are some other cozy gifts for her, she will be thankful for…

Cozy Gift For People Who Are Always Cold

  • Oversized hoodie blanket
  • Heated blanket
  • Portable electric hand warmers
  • Slippers
  • Space heater

Do you know anyone that falls into this category? I totally do!

I’m always cold. Everywhere I go, I carry a sweater with me or a jacket. Always. Even during the summer and I get the few odd looks since we live in Los Angeles with temperatures sometimes reaching 100 F. But, sometimes the air conditioning is blasting in restaurants.

As I’m researching everything cozy… I came across this oversized hoodie blanket. Perfect gift for the perpetually cold. This hoodie would make a great but useful gag gift.

A heated blanket is a mecca of warmth and cozy! Just plug it in and prepare to never leave your couch or your bed.

These portable electric hand warmers are great to keep in your jacket pockets. I’d take this to the office to have it on standby when my hands get cold as they do often.

A comfy pair of slippers is a must; see the variety of adorable Snoozie Slippers. I know The Uncorked Librarian is going to be all over these wine slippers.

True story: I used to have a space heater under my desk all year round for my feet. It’s one of the best things I ever had in my office.

Cozy Gifts

Cozy Throw Blankets

  • Chunky knitted blanket
  • Sherpa blanket
  • Travel blanket
  • Unicorn

Who likes to cuddle & get cozy under a throw blanket? I know, I do. On a rainy day. When I’m sick like a dog and all I want to do is hide under the cover. Every time I watch TV, there is a blanket involved.

Anyone else obsessed with blankets? Throw blankets are a part of everyday life in my household. I have a collection at home and it’s a problem – if you want to look at it that way. Even my dogs get in on this action. During the winter, Maverick sleeps with one every night.

I’ve been eyeing similar chunky knitted blankets for a while now. Imagine how cozy it would be sitting in front of a fire with one of these over you with a hot chocolate in hand. Serious, winter goals for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’d do this during the summer too… just crank up that AC!

I currently have a sherpa blanket on my bed and let me tell you, I no longer need a comforter. It keeps me warm at night to sleep and it so soft and cozy.

That’s why this knitted sherpa blanket is a classy gift for anyone. This makes a great bedspread, couch throw, or maybe even for their desk at the office. Just kidding… sort of. I’ve been tempted.

Let’s not forget the jet setters in your life, like me. Travelers also deserve a warm cozy gift for plane rides or if they get stuck in the airport and need to sleep on the floor. You never know. This travel blanket is easy to pack, plush, and perfect for those that like to pack light. It can be used as a pillow or be unwrapped as a blanket.

Because you know someone in your life that would love a unicorn blanket. My nieces would love this! (and so would I!)

Cozy Sleep Makes a Difference

  • Cozy pajamas
  • Backrest pillow
  • Eye mask
  • Sound machine
  • Diffuser

If there is any time a day that it’s important to be cozy, it would be at bedtime. Everything matters from the mattress, pillow and what you’re wearing to sleep.

Super soft and cozy pajamas • Cozy Warm Gifts

These Cuddl Duds pajamas are super soft and cozy. They have different styles from plain stripes to hearts for Valentine’s day! If you have a PJ addict in your life (like me), they make for a great gift. I’m sure most women will admit that they love to own a great set of soft pajamas.

Recently, my friend Lauren from Literary Dates joked on Instagram that she got a new husband in the form of a backrest pillow. I was so jealous of the purchase, I went ahead and purchased one. Love it.

Who doesn’t love the sound of the ocean as you’re falling asleep? Every time I hear those waves crashing against the shore in the background, I’m transported back to a cozy spot on an island. Sometimes I’m actually on an island. A sound machine is a great gift for someone that loves the sound of rain too.

For those restless nights that nothing helps, diffusing some lavender oil helps so much. If you know someone that values their sleep as I do, they’d appreciate a diffuser.

Fall Activities in Los Angeles

Are you looking for autumn in Los Angeles? Here are some of the best fall season things to do in Los Angeles.

  • An Electric Fireplace
  • Popcorn maker
  • Pie Scented Candles
  • Let’s Get Cozy Sign
  • Cozy Door Mat

One regret we have had every winter since moving into our house is not having a fireplace. We didn’t think it was important. For 20 years we have lived together and never once we had a fireplace. Until we started to sit in front of my sister-in-law’s on Christmas day and we realized how much we loved the cozy warm feeling.

We can’t exactly afford to install a real fireplace. So we have found an electric fireplace and TV console that we set up last Thanksgiving. It’s the best thing ever!

Electric fireplace for your home • Everything Cozy Gifts
I love ours at home!

Have a fireplace already? See here how to add hygge coziness to your fireplace

Looking for more items to make someone’s home (or your home) feel super cozy?

The smell of homemade popcorn or pecan waffles might make you hungry, but there is something about these scents that makes me feel all cozy inside. What about you?

Cozy Gifts for Pets

  • A cozy dog or cat bed
  • Plush blanket
  • Warm sweaters

Our furbabies deserve some coziness too.

My dogs are spoiled. Whenever I see something I know my dogs would like to snuggle in, I buy it. They have their own blankets, multiple beds, and even soft toys that they can’t get enough of.

A month, I purchased this dog bed for Lulu and she wants nothing to do with it. That’s because it takes her a while to get used to new things. My big dog Maverick is all over it and he barely fits.

This bed is so soft and comfortable, I want it for myself. It’s called the Donut Cuddler – I mean, it’s my kind of bed. Unfortunately, they don’t make it in a human size, I checked.

Not only will your furbabies love this blanket, it will also look great in your home. It’s plush with pretty colored polka dots. Your furbaby will love you for this. My dogs especially love their blankets when they come out of the dryer. How about you furbaby?

Your cat will love you for this. This cozy cave bed is everything!

My dogs don’t like to dress up. If your dogs do, you can always keep them cozy warm this winter in a cute little sweater.

Cozy Drinks To Warm Up Your Soul

Coffee is my morning ritual. I mean, where would I be without it?

Coffee is what keeps me alive day in and day out. There is no way I’m going to leave the coffee out of this conversation. Anyone of these bad boys below will help any coffee lover with their daily coffee ritual.

Sometimes it’s nice to indulge and have a great hot chocolate. Now, my ultimate favorite hot chocolate is sold by William-Sonoma and only available in the winter season. If available it makes for a wonderful gift for anyone that loves chocolate.

Godiva hot chocolate comes in as my 2nd favorite and available all year round.

Tip: Stir the chocolate in steamed milk. Then, take it up a notch and add a shot of Bailey’s. ?

If hot cocoa or coffee isn’t your thing, consider something sparkling and bubbly? Champagne gifts are fun and always welcomed.

I hope this list of cozy warm gifts inspires you. What is something cozy in your life?

Don’t forget to share the love on Pinterest:

When I’m not daydreaming about my next vacation, drinking coffee, or playing with my dogs, you can find me on InstagramTwitter, or Facebook for more posts and stories! Would love to hear from you!

  1. I was just looking at electric fireplaces online the other day — definitely going to have to invest in one. It’s only November and we’re supposed to be in the 30s this week! Send some Cali sunshine this way 🙂 great post!

    • 30’s…eeekk! We drop to the 50s at night and I have the heat on. This time of year we go back and forth from AC and heat. I’m so looking forward to the electric fireplace. Wayfair has some nice ones that look like an actual fireplace. The only reason we aren’t doing that one is because we live in a small house and I need storage for things. So the console will work for that space. Let me know if you do get one, I’d love to know which one you end up picking.

  2. This is such a fab cosy gift guide, Kathy!! I got a beanie from my favourite band’s merch table at their concert last night, and I can’t wait for California to get cold enough so that I can respectably wear it :’) Other than that, I thrifted this fantastically warm, big, downy, swim parka earlier this year, and I’ve only been able to use it when I’ve been out of town in cooler temperatures. It’s the cosiest and warmest thing I own!!! I can’t wait til I can put the two of those on together haha!

  3. Girl, this is perfect timing!! You know, it is supposed to be like 17-something here in NC, and I AM COLD. This is unseasonably cold weather for us too, and tomorrow, it might actually SNOW.

    Like you, once it drops under 70, my Florida blood requires slippers, blankets, and sweatshirts.

    GAHHHHHHHHHH, this post reminded me that I need to take pretty pictures on your amazing new sweatshirt/sweater that I FREAKING LOVE. I’m the worst blogging bestie, ever.

    Thank you so much for sending me one of these ideas while I was in TN, too. I needed it. You know, I actually bundled SO dang much, I got too hot once I was in a cafe. I had to shamelessly strip down. Then, I walked outside and froze. My blood cannot handle this.

    My cats love you. They adore a giant dog cushion as well as a cave. We own all of the above times four.

    We own an electric fireplace since FL because well, FL. We currently moved it into the basement of the NC home since our upstairs has a gas one (that I am so sad that we still cannot use because we need to get it checked out first–you know this house and our luck…we will blow up). That fireplace is a fab suggestions since they set the ambiance and produce heat. We used to turn ours on with Christmas lights around it and play fire crackling sounds on our iPhones. I KID YOU NOT.

    I love this cozy gift so much. So creative and needed. I love the endless fluff and can someone please buy me a unicorn throw? My cats took over my Vera one.

    • I saw that it’s snowing by you today. It looks so pretty but cold! Your cats have the right idea sitting on top of the vents for heat. I loved that picture you posted.

      For me, this time of year it’s all about the layers. You can be warm and cozy under a chunky sweater, but you never know when you have to start peeling it off to get some air cause it gets too hot. Then I’ll walk outside to cool down like you did and run back inside to put on that sweater again. ?

      I’m so jealous that you have a gas fireplace. We want one so bad but not enough to move lol. And YES, get that checked out! We don’t literally need to have that house be the death of you. An inspector once told me that all gas fireplaces are major problems and we are better off without one. I wonder if he was trying to make us feel better. It’s so funny that you mention the crackling sounds because I was thinking of doing the exact same thing! HAHA.

      The unicorn throw blanket is so freaking adorable. You can’t go wrong with that one.

  4. The first winter snow of the season has arrived, and it’s 28 degrees in NY. Brrrr… warm blankets, cozy slippers, and hot choco are some of my winter must-haves.

    Love the cozy gift ideas! I want to get one of those pink Snoozie slippers to match the Cuddle Duds pajamas. Super cute!

    • I think you need the warm and cozy more than I do. I can’t believe how cold it got in NY and snow?! Stay warm and cozy!

  5. Haha! You’re funny with your freezing below 70!! You know as a New Yorker, it’s my job to laugh at that.??? Sorry. For me, I’m cold in the 40s but even that’s not too terrible. Now we’ll get someone from Minnesota who will laugh at me and it’ll all be okay.?

    I LOVE your cozy list! Those blankets! I especially need the hoodie blanket for my office because I often do freeze in there. My apartment on the other hand, is sweltering hot so minimal clothing is best.
    That hot chocolate sounds so good though that I will open up a window so I can enjoy it.
    I love that you included a husband pillow. Thanks for the mention!! I got to say I love it SO much. I don’t know why I waited so long to get one. It’s a game changer and mine is cozy!? I’ve totally thought that if I ever do a gift guide for book lovers, I’m totally including it. That’s all I got so far though. One thing.?

    Awesome list!! I can’t wait to enjoy all things cozy up in NH. I’ll sip some hot chocolate in front of the fire while wearing a cozy sweatshirt. Maybe my pizza one!?

    • Every NYer always laughs at me when I tell them it’s freezing here at night and in the mornings. They don’t understand how different the cold is here too, it like nips at you all the way down to your bones. So my brother was here recently and while during the day it was nice at night it got cold. On purpose I did not put on the heat the 1st night he stayed here cause he’s from NY and I knew he’d think I was nuts. The next morning, he tells me he froze his night off all night LOL. The next night, the heat went on.

      Totally include the husband pillow for your gift guide! I am sure you’d think of many other things to add to the list.

      I love that hot chocolate so much! I get it every year. It’s probably the only thing I buy at Williams Sonoma all year. It’s such a great treat.

      Yes, wear your cozy pizza sweater! I’m still waiting for a picture lol

  6. So many great gift ideas. I love that you included gifts for those who are always cold, I fall into that category and I fully agree with those ideas. That dog bed looks so comfy, I would definitely want to curl up in it too!

    • Thank you, Sarah! I am always cold so I had to include stuff for us and I’d laugh if someone would give me that huge cozy hoodie. I wish my couch was as cozy as that dog bed. Hope you stay cozy and warm this winter!

  7. The heated blanket and sound machine are already on my Christmas list for this year! I love being cozy! I am totally using this for some Christmas shopping this year because everyone needs cozy things. Even the people who live in warmer places than I do! What a great list!

    • Thanks so much, Keri! I wasn’t planning to do a gift guide this year but this cold weather inspired me to share all the cozy things I love. Glad to see you found a few things on this list.
