The best of hibernating with your sweetheart
1. Gravity x Modernist Weighted Robe ($130)
This "ridiculously soft" bathrobe from the company that popularized weighted blankets "feels like a never-ending hug," writes Amanda Tarlton at Reviewed. The fleece fabric is "the kind you want to curl up in," and the weighted collar applies just enough pressure. Buy it at Bloomingdales.
2. LoveleeCookies Hot Chocolate Bombs ($7.50 each)
When heated milk is poured over a hot cocoa bomb, "it's like watching Willy Wonka magic unfold in your mug," writes Talia Abbas at Glamour. Each heart-shaped handmade chocolate truffle is packed with miniature marshmallows and a gourmet cocoa mix. Buy it at Etsy.
3. Printworks Chess Game ($58)
Fans of The Queen's Gambit can channel their inner Beth Harmon with this chic small-scale set. Created for Anthropologie by a Swedish design firm, it pairs wooden pieces with a plexiglass board. Buy it at Printworks.
4. Kissing Mugs ($65)
The next time you're enjoying a hot drink with your special someone, use these cute his-and-hers mugs, which were molded to resemble two faces smooching. They're handmade of dishwasher-safe porcelain in Asheville, North Carolina. Buy it at Uncommon Goods.
5. FLIKR Fire ($95)
"No built-in fireplace, no problem." This tabletop hearth burns isopropyl alcohol, which produces no smoke, and the flame lasts an hour at a time — "just long enough for you to get snuggled up and make s'mores," per CNN. Buy it at FlikrFireplace.
