Sometimes you just need to forget about all the worries in the world and have yourself some 'me time'. Perhaps you don't fancy facing the cold rainy weather, or you just need a day to completely relax & recharge your batteries, or maybe you're just nursing a particularly bad hangover. Whatever it is, the perfect remedy is a Duvet Day!
If you really want to make the most of your Duvet Day, there are some essentials that you're going to need. So with that in mind, we've prepared the ultimate guide on what you'll need to have the perfect Duvet Day......
When it comes to clothing there is only one option really – PJ's! Whether they are a pair of cosy patterned pyjamas, a big comfy dressing gown or an old over-sized t-shirt, you'll want to be wearing something you can relax in and be happy spending all day in. A proper Duvet Day is about avoiding that business suit, those skinny jeans & those high heels – this is all about getting comfy.
Snacks are an absolute must if you're going to enjoy a successful Duvet Day. It's probably best to make sure you're well stocked up on chocolate, cookies, crisps, fruit, popcorn or whatever else takes your fancy and move it all into the room at arm's reach. The last thing you want to be doing is having to get up for a slice of cake!
On a Duvet Day it's all about those amazing hot drinks. You may be a real tea or coffee connoisseur or perhaps you've been know to indulge in a hot chocolate with all the trimmings. There can't be many cosier feelings than being wrapped in your duvet, with your hands clasped around a hot drink that is overflowing with whipped cream, marshmallows and sprinkles – now doesn't that sound like heaven!
Relaxation is key to any good Duvet Day. It is your time to forget about all your worries and just enjoy the quiet. One great way to relax is with the soothing aid of scented candles – gather your personal collection together, create the perfect relaxation mood & take in the beautiful aroma as you take unwinding to a new level.
Don't even think about heading into the kitchen, the last thing you'll want to be doing later is cleaning up dirty dishes and left over ingredients. Instead reach for the take-away menu or iPad app and treat yourself to the biggest, greasiest pizza, burger, Chinese or fish & chips that you can handle - and there is no need to worry about the calories today!
Duvet & Bedding
So everything is in place, you've got your cosiest PJ's on, the pizza has been delivered, the candles are lit and the kettle has boiled. Now it's time to snuggle up into your wonderfully warm duvet. Your levels of cosiness are sure to go through the roof with some Egyptian cotton bedding or Egyptian cotton sheets wrapped around you. And once you're settled into your bed sheets (that better be clean & fresh) there is a very good chance you
won't want to leave for quite some time, so make sure you have absolutely everything near-by!
Duvet Days are the perfect excuse to indulge in a box- set binge. Spending the day curled up in front of your favourite TV show (whether that be drama or comedy) is what I call time well spent. You can catch up on a much- loved show or perhaps start a brand new series on Netflix! Or perhaps you're more of a movie buff, in which case grab the popcorn, close the curtains & settle in for some big-screen adventures. And after all that excitement, why not wind down with a good book or magazine – and most importantly all these things can be enjoyed without leaving your duvet cocoon.
Phone a Friend for a Chat
If you want to take a break from your TV or laptop, why not pick up the phone for a natter with a friend or family member & catch up on all the recent juicy gossip. From the comfort of your lovely warm duvet you can chat about anything and everything – perhaps about plans for the weekend, how work is going, the box-set marathon you've just finished or just how amazing Duvet Days are!
So there you have it, everything you will need to thoroughly enjoy a rather heavenly perfect Duvet Day. Just remember these are the bare essentials, you can fill your day with absolutely anything you want – maybe online shopping, a PS4 marathon, napping or maybe purchasing some new bedding sets and bedspreads in anticipation of your next Duvet Day.
