This holiday season we’re dreaming of all things cozy: snuggly blankets, plush robes, soft leisurewear, and super-soft slippers. And, we’re sure that everyone on your gift list will appreciate an extra dose of hygge for the holidays!
We handpicked some of our favorite consciously-crafted cozy gift ideas for her, him, and them available on Made Trade. These comfy, warm garments and home goods are the perfect pieces for friends and family this Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa.
1.Chilote House Shoe — $78
One of our most popular gift items on Made Trade, these Chilote house shoe slippers are a true crowd-pleaser, good for anyone on your list. (We even have a baby-sized version for the littlest ones in your life!)
Each pair comes with a beautiful story, too. Chilote’s house shoes are hand-knitted in small batches by women in Patagonia, Chile from locally sourced Patagonian sheep’s wool and the vegetable-tanned salmon leather used in the soles is an upcycled byproduct of the salmon fishing industry.
2. Coyuchi Loreto Organic Throw — $98
This GOTS-certified organic cotton throw from Coyuchi is the perfect mid-weight blanket for cozying up with year-round! It’s also multi-functional: it can be layered between a sheet and duvet for warmth, or shown off as a bedspread or throw.
3. Tonlé Chanlina Jacket — $245
Tonlé’s colorful draped jacket is a thick and cozy gift for staying warm through even the chilliest days this season. This one-of-a-kind handmade piece from tonlé is made using a completely zero-waste process — the jacket is made using a pile weave technique with small scraps of upcycled fabric. We think these jackets are absolutely stunning and so will whoever is lucky enough to receive it!
4. August Sage Chunky Wool Throw/Blanket — $395
This might just be the coziest blanket we’ve ever seen! August Sage’s chunky throw is crafted from unspun wool and looped by hand to create an extraordinarily fluffy and plush texture. This gift drapes beautifully over the end of a bed or chair and is the perfect throw to have on hand for keeping warm through the chilly months. Be warned: you might yourself buying a second one for yourself when you see it in person — or maybe it becomes a gift just for you…
5. AnatoliCo Abel Handwoven Robe — $125
Handwoven by local artisans in Turkey and inspired by traditional Turkish towels that have been used for centuries, Anatoli Co.’s robes are a beautiful heritage gift for anyone on your list.

6. Softwear Women’s Dune Hoodie and Dune Jogger | Men’s Dune Hoodie and Dune Jogger — $78 to $88
Softwear’s athleisure loungewear is made with an ultra-comfy fabric and designed to flatter with features such as a mid-rise waistband and anti-bunch drawstring. Plus, all of the brand’s pieces are designed with people and the planet in mind, too. Their pieces are ethically made in Brooklyn, New York using Lenzing Modal and cotton, and are dyed with non-toxic dyes. Dune, midnight, black, forest or white — there’s a color that will fit the style of your gift recipient.
Perfect for laying out as a picnic blanket at the park or to wrap around yourself around the campfire, Nipomo’s handmade blankets can be used for any season. All of the brand’s blankets are consciously handwoven in Mexico by skilled artisans using upcycled yarn from the garment industry.

Another one of our favorite cozy gift ideas for the holiday season, Kyrgies slippers are consciously handmade with sustainably harvested wool felt in Kyrgyzstan using centuries-old felting techniques.
