Unlike many, I'm a big fan of the colder weather. Whilst I thrive in sunnier climes, I love getting wrapped up and embracing the spirit that surrounds the latter months of the year. Part of the appeal is the art of getting cosy - lighting candles, curling up under a blanket and hibernating for a while.

To help with my plight, online boutique Amara kindly sent me a selection of beautiful items to keep me snug and warm, and sleeping peacefully throughout winter. Amara is an online boutique specialising in luxury gifts, designer homeware and contemporary furniture and is one of my favourite websites to browse for gifts.

As a big fan of Liberty of London prints, I fell head over heels for this beautifully colourful and distinctive pattern and knew I had to have both the hot water bottle* and eye mask of the same design. The hot water bottle has a padded fleece lining, is wonderfully soft to touch and would be a lovely gift for a woman of nearly any age.

I only started sleeping with an eye mask about a year ago, and all I can say is don't knock it until you've tried it - I've honestly never slept so well! This Liberty of London offering is finished with a satin trim, beautiful velvet underside and is filled with locally-sourced Cotswold lavender to help promote a restful night's sleep.

As if a hot water bottle and eye mask wasn't enough to send me into the best sleep of my life, I also received the NEOM Tranquility Deep Sleep Treatment* which is a potent blend of 19 essential oils including lavender, sweet basil and jasmine which helps to induce a deep and restful night's sleep.

I hate to mention it, but as Christmas is only 8 weeks away it's prime time to start browsing for gift ideas, and I'd highly recommend checking out Amara - you can easily sort out the perfect gift for friends, loved ones and any member of the family in one easy swoop.

What do you think of my Amara picks?
