Winter is here ❄️
Most of us would much prefer being in warmer climes this time of the year, but there's no doubt that winter has its own charms. We're big on all things winter at Lidl, like cozying up indoors, getting layered in fluffy hats and scarves to brave the outdoors, or even snow fights in the garden and a warm tea on a park bench. Let's get ready to enjoy the cold weather ahead!
Big on keeping in the heat 🧦
Those winter days can get chilly, and keeping the heating on all day can be expensive, but there are plenty of things you can do to stay snug at home.
A top tip to retain the heat if you have large or draughty windows is to keep the curtains closed when the temperature outside drops. If your radiator is underneath your window, be sure to tuck the curtains behind it so that the precious warmth doesn't escape!
If you need a little extra warming boost on those chilly days, Lidl can help with a range of snuggly heated items. The Sanitas Foot Warmer has 6 heat settings and a washable fleece lining. Just pop your feet in for speedy toasty toes! Or how about a soothing Shoulder Heat Pad or Heated Cushion. Both are machine washable and made from extra soft, breathable material, and automatically switch off after 90 minutes for safety. All three warming products are available from 5th December for £16.99.
Baby, it's cold outside ☃️
As tempting as it is, we can't spend all winter snuggled up indoors. You'll be wanting to venture outside to walk off that Christmas dinner, and of course there's the obligatory snowman build (weather permitting). Make sure you wrap up warm and keep those extremities protected from the harsh winter. A brisk walk can also do wonders to raise your temperature on a cold day, just take care if it's icy!
Lidl can help keep your feet snug and stylish on those winter strolls with a range of comfortable FootFlexx slip-resistent Men's Boots and extra wide Ladies' Boots, available in store from 5th December for £14.99.
And to keep the chill away from your neck and hands, how about a snuggly cashmere-blend scarf for £16.99, and cashmere-blend gloves for £9.99. Both available in grey and pink from 15th December.
Tea, love? 🍵
No matter what the weather is like, it's absolutely essential to stay hydrated. Remember those insulated bottles you used for keeping your ice cool drinks chilly all day? They're also great for hot tea and coffee (make sure to check the labels from the packaging first!), which is absolutely ideal for a daily walk or any time you have to be standing out in the cold.
As your heating will be on indoors you'll probably feel the need for constant hydration too. This is the perfect time to use a tea pot or tea press, which will keep your tea hot for longer and you can just pour out what you need. If you're interested in picking one up, you can find a 1L Assam Tea Press in Lidl for just £9.99 from Thursday 12th December, which is suitable for black, green and herbal tea too!
Cold hands, warm heart ♥️
