The Weight Gain You Want 

yaasa-weighted-blanket

This chunky, 15-pound weighted blanket is the epitome of seasonal snugglability. Send the gift of warmth and tranquility to recognize an employee, or indulge in some self-care by ordering one for yourself. Cost: $249.

Non-Slip Slippers

If you’re still logging in from the dining room table this winter, treat yourself to these on-trend booties. The wool felt shoe with a leather sole will keep your feet warm and dry, and makes these slippers sturdy enough for a dash to the mailbox or your dog’s favorite tree. Cost: $125.

Hotter Chocolate

Cost: $12.50 per 9.5-ounce tin.

Joe to Go

Bring your hot chocolate — or your favorite coffee or tea — along for the ride with these 16-ounce travel mugs from Contigo. The lids snap shut to minimize spills, and drinks stay hot up to 6 hours or cold up to 12. Cost: Two mugs, $21.99.

Luxurious Wrap

Is it a blanket or a wrap? Cashmere makes this oversized shawl a must-have this season. From Naked Cashmere, the Karli Scarf comes in 15 colors. Cost: $175.

Essential Beanie

The classic one-size-fits-all beanie from L.L. Bean is a perfect background for any logo. Made with Dryarn, a microfiber that is light, water repellent and breathable, this winter staple is available in black, gray and nautical navy. Cost: $19.95 each; customization fees start at $5.95.

Tea Tasting

palais-des-thes-tea-set

For discerning tea drinkers, this set from Palais des Thés is sure to impress. Ten tubes are filled with such blends as black tea with almond, apple, cinnamon, vanilla and a hint of ginger; and green tea with flower petals, white peach, kiwi and watermelon. Each tube makes a pot of about seven cups. Cost: $55.

The Go-Everywhere Jacket

Patagonia-Nano-Puff-jacket

Patagonia’s Nano Puff jacket is de rigueur for cooler days. Available in nine colors, it’s windproof, water-resistant and Fair Trade Certified–sewn — meaning more money goes directly to factory workers who produce the product. Cost: $199.
