How To Spend A Nice Evening In During Winter

Today I’m sharing some ideas on how to spend a nice evening in during winter.

When the weather is cold, the idea of spending a nice evening in is so appealing but when you do it really often (like me) it can get boring so here are some things I do to make staying in a little bit more fun and nice.

Watch some movies, snacks at the ready!

It’s a great idea to watch some movies when spending a nice night in. If there are no movies that I fancy watching on Netflix or Amazon Video, I often watch BBC iPlayer and catch up on some TV shows I may have missed. It’s an even better experience if you have an amazing tv. The ultimate choice would be Panasonic UHD 4K TV this would give a real cinema style feel to the movie experience. Also I love to have some popcorn to share.

Wear something comfy and cozy

Get out the loungewear and get cozy! I love to have a nice faux fur blanket too. This ensures that you are comfy and cozy to snuggle down and watch your movie.

Have the right lighting to set the mood

It’s nice to light some candles or have some fairy lights on to make a nice relaxing atmosphere. With it also being the festive season you may already have some decorations and lights up.

Make Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate is a great drink to have on a nice night in when you are watching movies. Once every now and then I will add cream and marshmallows too as a special treat!
