Snow Day Essentials from Amazon

We’re officially snowed in here in Wisconsin! I guess it was inevitable that our balmy Midwest winter was going to come to an end. Winter is not my idea of a good time; however, I kind of live for a good snow day. I look forward to at least one real snow day every year! You know the ones I’m talking about – where you don’t really need to/can’t go anywhere so it’s the perfect excuse to kick back. I rounded up some of my favorite snow day essentials from Amazon, most of which are either prime or free shipping so you can count on quick delivery snow or shine. 😉

Snow Day Essentials from Amazon
Probably the most important part of a snow day is the attire – pajamas, duh! Why bother with “real” clothes when the plan is not to leave the house? Plus, snow makes everything seem that much colder so you might as well snuggle up in cozies. A warm pair of socks and/or slippers complete the ensemble.

Don’t forget a heated throw!

I don’t personally own this insulated mug, but everyone raves about it so there must be good reason! It sounds perfect for cold, snowy days when you don’t feel like leaving the couch to microwave your coffee or tea multiple times.

Reading material is a must, of course. My current book – the premise sounds so cute! Might I also suggest this suspenseful thriller (free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers).

Feel like working your brain a bit? Puzzles are the answer! We’re big fans of them over here. My in-laws gifted me the most adorable puzzle for Christmas that I can’t wait to start.

Last but certainly not least, Amazon even has us covered for T.V. entertainment. Prime is worth it alone to have access to a few of their original series’. The second season of Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is in our immediate snowy future, and we also recently watched/loved Jack Ryan. There’s something for everyone!

How do you like to spend a snow day?

      I watched the first season on my own, and since I raved about how funny it was to Ryan he wants to watch it now before we start the second season. I’m like sign me up since I’ll take any excuse to re-watch all of it, lol!

    A snow day is the perfect excuse to stay in and do whatever you want to do! A cup of tea and sitting watching tv and crocheting is it for me!

    The Yeti mug is on my list. To keep coffee warm for the entire morning at the office would be a dream!

    We just finished watching Jack Ryan, too! We also recently watched Homecoming, starring Julie Roberts. It was really good.

      We started Homecoming a while back, and I think we still have four or five episodes to go – thank you for reminding me! Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with all the streaming these days. 😉

    I always forget about our Amazon Prime account in regards to shows, but need to check out some of their original series. And I’ve been LIVING in my slippers all winter long lol.
