Want/Need: Our Winter Wishlists
Written by James Kicinski-McCoy
The holidays may be officially behind us, but winter is here to stay for a little while longer. If that means more nights by the fire curled up with the ones we love and a mug of hot tea or cocoa, and lounging around in the softest of sweaters and long johns, it’s okay with us! We’ve gathered a list of things for our seasonal editor’s Want/Need list, that we can’t live without during these chilly months. What’s on your list?
