With the mercury continuing to drop nationwide and snow starting to fall in the mountains, it’s important to hibernate in style – think lush rugs by the fire, classic movies, mulled wine…it’s all about rewarding yourself, because baby it’s cold outside. But it’s not all about indulgence, it’s important to keep busy too. With plenty of indoor activities to take the chill out of the air, here are some cool suggestions from Gumtree on how to keep warm at home this season:
- Invite the neighbours around for some healthy competition – put away the technology, it’s time to go head-on with your friends and put those analog skills to the test with classic board games like Jenga, Connect Four and Monopoly available on Gumtree. There’s even a game of skill from Games of Thrones – a great way to tide you over till the next season.
- Upskill from your couch – sure, knitting has made a comeback, but how about learning how to crochet or even create amigurumi, a type of Japanese crochet? Check out Gumtree for patterns and books to teach yourself from the comfort of your couch. If in doubt, search for Classes in your local community for a little extra help.
- Start a book club – lock yourself indoors with some mulled wine, your friends and a few fictional classics. If you aren’t part of a book club – use Gumtree to start one. Post an ad in the Activities & Hobbies section. Don’t stop there though, use Gumtree to source your books too. With over 6,000 available, whether you want to escape to a tropical island or get to know Mr. Darcy, it’s safe to say you can find almost any book on Gumtree.
- If in doubt, slow down – it’s important to indulge a little, but cooking is an activity too, right? Warm yourself up with some comfort food this winter and stock up on those kitchen classics. From fondue kits to cast iron cookware, Gumtree will make sure you’re that much closer to nailing that Masterchef challenge.
