Candles are a classic way to create a warm glow throughout the house. Candles can be used in groups as gorgeous decor, or they can be used to fill the house with a scent that reminds everyone of the joyous season, such as cider, holiday spices, or pine.

2. Swap Out Throws and Blankets

Replace your lightweight throw for cozy blankets for those cold nights. Use blankets as an accent piece on the arm of a chair or couch so they are within easy reach to be used.

3. Add Whimsical Trees

There is something magical about the look of a Christmas tree and the way it lights up. Add a Christmas tree to your kitchen or bedroom, even if it’s just decorated with lots of lights, which creates a fanciful and cozy feeling.

4. Use the Comfort of the Outdoors

Bringing the outside in is an easy and quick way to add comforting elements to your Christmas home decor. Use firewood, pine cones, extra clippings from your Christmas tree, magnolia leaves, berries, and so much more. Create a simple display for the table top or mantel, or just keep cut wood out on display.

5. Bring in Flannels and Plaids
