In this year of relentless curveballs, there’s at least one thing we can control: the warmth and comfort we feel at home. Whether you are in a small studio, a spacious house, or a family member’s pad, home is whatever you make it. Dial up the cozy factor with these 15 snuggle-worthy vegan goods.

1. Flavored hot chocolate
Cooler temps call for more time nestled in with a good book and a creamy hot chocolate. And thanks to Target brand Good & Gather’s Hot Cocoa line, there’s more than five new vegan ways to sip on the classic hot chocolate including Sea Salt Caramel, Double Chocolate, Peppermint, Pumpkin, and Cinnamon. Just add your dairy-free milk of choice, stir, and enjoy as-is or adorned with a mountain of vegan whipped cream or marshmallows.

2. Organic herbal tea
Whether you begin or end the day with tea, its benefits are well-established. Pukka’s caffeine-free Three Ginger tea is crafted with comfort in mind—the blend of organic Galangal, Ginger, Turmeric, and Licorice eases you into a relaxed, calmed state of being. Sip on its own or slightly sweetened with a touch of maple syrup.

3. Easy s’mores
Harken back your favorite camp memories with an indoor s’more. Grab Dandies vegan marshmallows (the big ones), graham crackers, and your favorite dairy-free chocolate bar, then follow along with Dandies’ easy s’mores stovetop recipe. You’ll have a gooey, hot marshmallow sandwich ready in less time than it takes to belt out your favorite campfire tune.

4. Ooey-gooey oatmeal
Many favorite winter foods rate high on comfort but low in nutrition, but a little planning can keep your diet from snowballing out of control. Rolled or steel-cut oats deliver gut-healthy fiber and can be used in all kinds of recipes (such as this savory oatmeal). For a quicker option, KIND’s new oatmeal offers instant gratification in a bowl. We love the Dark Chocolate & Almond flavor for its chocolate chips that melt into the oats. Chocolate for breakfast is 100-percent acceptable.

5. Place-and-bake sugar cookies
Place-and-bake offers all the fragrance of freshly baked cookies and none of the clean up. There are a ton of exceptional store-bought vegan cookie doughs at most supermarkets, but Sweet Loren’s is one of the most widely accessible. Alternatively, eating the dough on its own is pretty cozy, too.

6. Soothing soup
A steaming bowl of soup may be the ultimate comfort food on a blustery winter day. By nature, it forces us to slow down and savor each slurp. Amy’s Organic Light-in-Sodium Lentil Vegetable Soup is hearty, nourishing, and just a grocery trip away. We also love Gardein’s new line of soups chock full of plant-based meats, noodles, and veggies, all swimming in a flavorful broth.

7. Cocktail candles
It may only be 10am, but you can enjoy the fragrance of a wintry, warming cocktail with a vegan-friendly Rewined Candle. Opt for your seasonal cocktail of choice—Hot Toddy or Spiked Cider—and light it up whenever you’re in need of a pick-me-up.

8. Greenery
Getting outdoors for sunlight and fresh air (while keeping your distance, of course) is key for self-care. When the days are shorter, bringing the outdoors in by way of a few indoor plants can also liven up a room and help ward off those pesky winter doldrums. Dial up your local nursery for curbside pickup and consult ASPCA’s pet-safe list if you have a furry friend at home.

Think of a wrap as a fashion-forward blanket. It’s perfect for Zoom meetings but also ideal for cuddling on the couch while watching Hallmark Christmas movies. The Wrap by Bleusalt is a crazy-soft option that comes in three lengths and instantly dresses up any outfit.

11. Cozy loungewear
While it may not have been spoken, we now live in a world where it is socially acceptable to exist exclusively in vegan loungewear. Layer up with Pact’s Waffle Long Sleeve Henley, fleece-lined leggings, and a sherpa pullover. In this fuzzy getup, you’re ready to take on a trip to the store or settle in for a long winter’s nap.

12. Plaid flannel pajamas
If there were a classic winter uniform, it would be plaid flannel pajamas. L.L. Bean’s Scotch Plaid Flannel Pajamas come in fits for guys and girls, have a roomy top, and seem to get softer with every wash. While some flannels are made with wool, this sweet set is 100-percent cotton.

15. Weighted blanket
Stemming from the principles of deep pressure therapy, the weighted blanket mimics the experience of a warm, lasting hug. Many swear by its stress-relieving, calm-inducing benefits.
