Christmas Gift Guide 2022 | The Homebody
Sometimes, it’s nice to just chill. Maybe it’s been a long week at work, maybe the weather is grim? Whatever the reason, the holiday season screams comfort, and these picks will add a little more “ahhhhh” to days at home. The Christmas Gift Guide 2022 – The Homebody.
When comfort is king, it’s hard to beat a fleece. However, there are fleeces, and then there are fleeces. The Port Jacket falls into the second category, and it is the ultimate fleece jacket for lounging around the house during the holidays or running quick errands. The 10.5oz fleece provides ample protection against the incoming winter chill. Elasticated cuffs and hem help to trap the heat, and the custom Taylor Stitch snaps add a touch of vintage class. Two hearty hand pockets are a perfect spot for phones or car keys on errands, and the two available patterns are the perfect depiction of retro style. This is a timeless classic that will be loved for many cold evenings to come.
Like most of Taylor Stitch products, the Apres pant are a considered take on a classic–the sweatpants. These are the perfect blend of chino and sweatpant, working equally well in social situations as they do on the sofa at home. With two button pockets on the rear, and two slip pockets on the front, their versatility is a key feature. Pre-washed and broken in, these will only get better with age. These are the type of pants that could fulfil every duty during the holiday season. The Apres come in a range of luxurious comfortable materials including organic cotton sashiko, waffle, and double cloth. The Apres pants are what sweatpants should be.
There’s nothing better than a comfortable pair of slippers at the end of a long day. OluKai are famed for their comfortable flip flops and sneakers in the summer months, and they’ve now turned that attention to some winter comfort. The moo-ah ee-lee are an excellent option for around the house. With a luxurious build of a supple leather upper, shearling interior and tough non-slip outsole, these slippers are the foundation for a good holiday season!
Plaid shirts are known for their comfort in the cooler months, but Faherty has taken that trait and turned it to eleven. This soft and stretchy knit has all the aesthetic appeal of a favourite flannel packed into a soft and stretchy package. This shirt feels like someone took a fleece blanket, chopped it up and made the perfect winter warmer. With a mix of plaids, solids, and patterns, this shirt can assimilate wherever needed. A relaxed fit makes it ideal for layering and movie nights.
After a day(s!) of eating and drinking, the sofa is calling. To complete the cosy set up, a good blanket is a must. This reversible number has gloriously soft recycled sherpa fleece on one side, while the other is made from organic cotton with a Doug Goodfeather (Native Artist) “Western Range Shadow” design. 52″ x 72″ is a great size, to give full coverage incase the cocktails and fire place catch up!
It wouldn’t be the holidays without some overly competitive family games! In that case, it may as well be done in style. This Scrabble set is 25% larger than the standard board and is luxury all around. The board is made from stained mahogany, with matching tile racks. It also folds in half for easy transport wherever you might end up this holiday season!
Socks get a bad wrap, they are really useful gifts! Particularly when they are Japanese socks created on a traditional stocking frame knitting machine which replicates a hand knitted motion. Every run of Chup socks are technically limited edition, and each intricate pattern is inspired by either traditional folk art or the natural world. A durable mix of cotton, acrylic, nylon and polyurethane, these conversation starting socks will last for years to come.
