Cosy nights in

A warm crackling fire, snugly blankets and hot chocolate – all perfect ingredients for a cosy winter night in. But what else makes for a relaxing night in? Here’s our round-up of the best buys for winter evenings.

Reading a good book

Nothing helps you un-wind and escape from busy modern day reality quite like a good book. Switch off from technology and sit down with some of our favourites.

The Muse by Jessie Burton from WH Smith £4.49

The Muse is an unforgettable novel about aspiration and identity, love and obsession, authenticity and deception. You won’t be able to put this Sunday Times bestseller down.

I Let You Go by Claire Macintosh also from WH Smith £6.29

Jenna Gray's world descends into a nightmare. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but is haunted by her fears, grief and memories of a cruel November night that changed her life forever. Slowly, Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating.

Have a bath

There is nothing quite as relaxing as hopping into a bubble bath on a cold evening. Create heavenly bubbles with Radox Feel Blissful Moisture Soak from Boots for only £1. These bubbles contain natural ingredients chosen to soften and moisturise your skin, leaving you with a warm glow all over.

Treat your skin

Give your skin a little lift and nourish by popping on a facemask.

Get deep into your pores and freshen your skin with this L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox mask also from Boots for £5.99.

If you want something a bit less messy why not try a sheet mask, one easy peel off and you are good to go. Leave your skin refreshed with a citrus scent with this Origins mask for £5 from Boots.

Before popping on your PJ’s, ordering a takeaway and sticking on a Netflix drama, pick up the other cosy night in essentials from your local Mall and have an evening that’s all about you.
