The 13 Products Bobby Is Using To Fight The Winter Blahs

Design: Commune Design

Now that the holidays have come to an end, the tree is coming down and the stockings are being stored away until next year. And for many of us, the winter months can feel like a long stretch of darker days and chilly nights. But instead of letting the season dampen your spirits, employ one of these easy ideas to beat the winter blahs – and stay mentally fit.  

Winter can be a challenging season – and not just because of harsher weather. Shorter days mean less sunlight, which can lead to feelings of depression. And since we’re spending even more time indoors, cabin fever can make us go stir-crazy. But there are also easy ways you can embrace the season – by getting cozy, bringing in light, and using scent to stimulate – that will help you make the most of winter, no matter where you are.

 

Keep scrolling to see 13 products to fight the winter blahs – starting at just $12!

Weighted Blanket

A weighted blanket is a proven way to feel comforted and secure (it’s like a wearable hug!) This fuzzy fleece version will keep you warm and toasty all season. And if you haven’t tried one before I have to admit – they are pretty amazing, once you try it you’ll know what I am talking about.

Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier

Did you know that when temperatures drop, so does the humidity in your home? Less humidity can make it harder to sleep and breathe so when the winter months hit (right now) adding a little extra boost of humidity can go a long way. A simple ultrasonic humidifier (which is virtually silent) will add moisture and help you breathe a little easier.

  1. Love the products. Been wanting to get a lamp for my husband nice to see one reasonably priced. He has S.A.D and the winter is always the worst time of year for him

  2. I wanted to express how much I appreciate Bobby on Queer Eye. I love this blog, and I love the enormous impact he makes on people’s lives in the show. I think he is underappreciated because of his low key personality. Bobby is my favorite. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! Sending you lots of love and Happy New Year! xx -B

  3. Thanks for all these great ideas. I’m planning to change all my lightbulbs to get the warm glow. We need it here in Minnesota where days are so short! Much love to you Bobby.

    1. Hope the new lightbulbs make a difference! xx -B

  4. That mini fire pit is so cute! Love the idea of roasting marshmallows on it indoors.

    1. What a cute idea! It’s nice to find ways to bring in the outdoor experiences to your home. xx -B

  5. I’ve always used a humidifier in the winter to keep my skin feeling less dry. Will definitely try this facial steam too. Thanks for sharing Bobby, big fan of yours.

    1. I find humidifiers to be essential during winter times too. Thanks for your comment! xx -B

  6. Can you include those of us who live abroad in your shopping lists? Europe is not that far away!

  7. That hotel pictured up top is gorgeous! Lodge living looks so inspiring in winter!

    I love the mini fire pit; I had no idea they were available for indoors! The electric kettle you found here is the nicest one I’ve ever seen – they are always white and plastic – so I’m going to buy this one.

    Always a lovely collection of items.

  8. You posted some organization products not long ago and I can’t find them in my email. There was a package you could buy with a felt organizer, glass container with lid and more. Any ideas? Thanks

    1. I included some glass container options in this post and you can also see all our storage favorites here. xx -B
