Favorite things: holiday edition

Every once in a while we like to share a top 10 list with you of customer favorites and top-selling items. In November, not surprisingly, a lot of those items were holiday themed.

Baby, it's cold outside!

Here are some of our favorite ways to warm up!

A roaring fire - But since we don't all have a wood-burning fire place, the rest of us can watch this eight-hour YouTube video of a roaring fire, complete with tranquil crackling sounds. I feel warmer already.

Candy cane cocoa - perfect for sipping by that roaring fire.

Area rugs - Experts agree that an area rug can add insulation to a hard wood or tile floor. Floors account for as much as 10% of heat loss if they're not insulated, according to the National Energy Foundation (NEF). We have a huge selection of braided, woven, jute and hooked rugs to add warmth --and character-- to your home this winter. PKD-384-38-Log-Cabin-Hooked-Rug-48x72-LRG

Bake cookies - Extra calories provide the energy you need to stay warm when it's cold, and while they're baking, you can hover near the warmth of your oven.

Bundle up - Instead of turning up the heat, turn up the charm with a knit throw blanket! (And we have pillows and quilted bedding to match!)
