Farmhouse Fresh Goods Whoopie Cream

$14; Whoopie Cream should be a bedside staple for any soft-skin seeker. The shea butter-whipped hand cream smells just like a decadent cake and unfailingly draws the question, “What smells so good?” from bedmates upon every application. The cream is 90 percent natural, vegan and gluten-free, making the temptation to eat it quite real, but alas, Whoopie Cream is strictly for the skin. Paraben- and sulfate-free, the Whoopie Cream is loaded with vitamin E and jojoba and soybean oils, leaving hands unbelievably soft.

Takeya Hot Tea Maker

$14.66; Snuggling up with a warm blanket and a good book is even cozier with a nice, warm cup of hot tea. For fresh tea made fast, the Takeya Tea Maker is the tops. It’s simple to use, easily steeps both bagged and loose-leaf tea and keeps the beverage hotter for longer. Plus quick clean up allows you to get back to more important things like finishing your book and taking a long winter’s nap. Ahhhh, bliss!

Kindle Fire

$199; Cozying up with a good book just got 21st Century. With the mid-November release of the Kindle Fire, Amazon has put the heat on Apple for the best user experience in a tablet-sized device. In addition to having millions of books, magazines, songs, movies and TV shows literally at your fingertips, users can also browse the Web, download games and apps, and store all of the aforementioned in the cloud. For free! Beauty, brains AND a bargain? That’s hot!

Jockey Fleece Robe

$60; Winter’s harsh, and so is stepping out of a nice, warm shower and wrapping up in a barely-there towel. Make a smoother shower segue with the help of Jockey’s almost-to-the-floor fleece robe. The belted waste is complimented by an inside tie to avoid any unwanted skin exposure, and the super-soft fleece piling engulfs you in velvety warmth, keeping you cozy as you get ready for the day. Available in ivory, grey and festive plaid in sizes S, M, L and XL.

HoMedics Hydro-Therapy Foot Massager

$49.99; There’s perhaps nothing more relaxing than a foot massage, except maybe a nice, warm bath. With HoMedics’ Hydro-Therapy Foot Massager, you get the best of both. The unit’s four jets provide an intense massage for the feet, while the pressure points are stimulated in the heels, toes and arches. And though the blue LED lighting is billed as providing a “more soothing experience,” it looks pretty cool too.

World’s Softest Cozy Spa Footsie Socks

$6.99; World’s Softest Cozy Spa Footsies are like swaddling your feet in a satin/fleece wrap, only cozier. The super-soft footsies easily slip on and have a snug (not tight) fit to provide warmth and comfort. Made of 97 percent polyester with 3 percent spandex, they’re equally as soft on the inside and out. Available in a variety of colors and patterns.
