We're firm believers that the holidays are all about staying cozy indoors (preferably with a piping hot chocolate in hand) and spending time with our loved ones. Scratch that -- we're firm believers that this is the ideal all winter long. Taking a page from our Danish friends, the colder seasons were practically made for "hygge," or feeling cozy through the simpler things in life. It's a great excuse to be surrounded by aromatic candles, plush bathrobes and ultrawarm blankets.
This makes home goods, like slippers and cashmere throws, a clear winner when it comes to the holidays. These gifts will surely get used all season long and will make your loved ones feel warm and cozy while they're lounging around their homes.
One of our favorite purveyors of these hygge-inducing goodies is Parachute. This direct-to-consumer company specializes in breathable linens, fan-favorite bathrobes and other luxury everyday essentials at reasonable price points. But the real selling point is in the product's make; every single Parachute item is made without synthetic finishes or chemicals (like the ones that cause pilling in the wash). The products have been graded Oeko-Tex certified, a designation that's a few notches above organic.
And in the true spirit of holiday giving, the company donates malaria-prevention bed nets to the United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign for every Venice Bedding Set (starting at $239; parachutehome.com) sold.
Gifting your friends and family ultracozy blankets and decor, while also giving back to those in need, sounds like wins all around to us.
Ahead, we've rounded up some of our favorite gifting options on Parachute right now. This collection of home goods make for perfect holiday gifts. Plus, they're great if you want to treat yourself too. Hey, we can't blame you.
