Thawing Out the Winter Blues

Thawing Out the Winter Blues

Michele Carr

The days are short, the air is bitter, and the animals are all in hiding. It’s winter time! It can be one of the most enchanting of times living in a winter wonderland, but that can quickly turn into a grey and dreary nightmare. No need to fret- we narrowed down the top five solutions for beating those winter blues!

Bundle Up

Cozy Bathrobes

You don’t need a fireplace to cuddle up and get cozy this winter. All you need is the women’s Luxury Monkstyle Bathrobe. This robe is extra long and roomy with adjustable turn-back sleeve cuffs, a large hood that doubles as a long collar, and a wide self-tie belt perfect for the cold winter days. The best part? The extra large front pockets big enough to store enough snacks to last all winter!


Specialty Vineyard Soaps

Thaw out the cold with the 3 Bar Wine Soap Gift Set. Bath time just got even better with this one of a kind soap set. The soap is handmade in extremely limited quantities (less than 50 bars at a time) and contains only natural products. Some of the by-products of the vineyards are incorporated into the bars with scents including Cabernet Soapignon Soap Bar, Soapignon Blanc Soap Bar, and Berry Rose Soap Bar. Give new meaning to the phrase whining about winter!
