Rain happens. It’s a way of life. But instead of fighting the elements for a day of shopping or a night on the town, use the weather as an excuse to enjoy some much needed personal time in your abode.

When the roads are slick and the skies are grey, turn to these rainy-day must-haves to make the most of your time indoors.

A Good Book

The sound of rain pouring has always been a great soundtrack for reading. Switch off all of the electronics and grab a new hard cover book like Diane von Furstenberg’s inspiring autobiographical tome The Woman I Wanted to Be and put a dent in your reading list.

Hot Chocolate

Everyone should have a stash of hot chocolate for rainy days, but if you really want to prepare for your indoor retreat, try Williams-Sonoma’ Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. Rich and decadent, the hot chocolate  is made from Guittard’s semisweet and milk chocolates and is infused with creamy caramel and a hint of pure sea salt.

We’ve already confessed our love for a good candle, both for gifting and for personal shopping. Let the aroma from Hart and Hawthorn’s Second Eden: Apple Soy Candle make your setting smell heavenly.

Cozy Socks
