Ten Notions Treats You Deserve To Get You Through The Chilly Season

We love the *idea* of Winter.

Cosy clothes, blazing fires and toasty drinks topped with a dollop of whipped cream that's taller than your bobble hat.

The reality, though, is not always so glam.

Think waiting twenty minutes in the freeeeezing cold for a bus and watching it fly past you when you're already late.


We all need little treats to get us through the chilly season, and lucky for you - you can indulge in some guilt-free but still totally notions treats to help you feel less sorry for yourself this year thanks to KBC.

When you use your KBC credit card, you get 1% cashback on grocery and online purchases, so you can feel a little less guilty about your fancy splurges.*

Here's ten treats you totally deserve this season.

1. A spontaneous taxi or two

We know we shouldn't do it willy-nilly, but when the weather gets colder our destination feels just that little bit further away - especially when trying to navigate buses and trains. There's nothing quite like closing the car door on the world and settling in for a nice little chinwag with the driver before you arrive right at the door.

2. Luxurious bed linen

During the Winter months, bed is our favourite place to be - so why not make it as habitable as possible?! has a range of "hotel bedding" for reasonable prices available to buy online. All you're missing now is room service.

3. A fancy travel mug

If you're anything like us - your relationship with coffee gets even more intense at this time of year.

Take it to the next level with this TOUCH travel mug from Nespresso - it keeps your coffee warm without burning your hands, (and looks slick, too).

4. Brand new lavish cosies

Now is the time to pimp out your Winter wardrobe - and we're not talking about a new wool coat.

No, we're talking about the only Winter wardrobe that matters - the one you wear indoors when you're panned out in front of Netflix.

Irish retailers Theo + George do some of the comfiest luxury clothing around. Their Grace Cashmere leggings paired with the Ella Crew Neck Cashmere sweater is a match made in heaven for ridiculously glamorous lounging.

5. A portable spa massager

Can't escape for a spa weekend anytime soon? Bring the spa to you with this ultra-notions portable bath massager.

Simply drop the spa bath tub mat in the tub and instantly create a soothing jacuzzi bath spa right at home. The tub spa massager features a built-in heater and keep warm function, as well as adjustable bubble settings. You'll never leave the house again.

6. Wine aerator from Designist

This little gadget is the ultimate conversation-starter, and will have your mates thinking you are nothing short of a sommelier at your next festive get-together.

The soiree wine aerator blasts oxygen directly into each glass of wine as it pours, adding body and bringing out the full aroma and flavour. Absolute notions - and we love it.

7. Doggie Onesies

If there's one person who may love treats even more than us, it's our four-legged friends. Any other time of year, buying your pooch a onesie would be deemed "spoiling them" (nonsense). But in Winter, it's absolutely acceptable to go all out with new Winter snugglies for your furry friend.

We're obsessed with the Adidog range.

8. Touch-screen coffee machine

This could be the closest thing to having your own in-house barista. Customised coffee courtesy of Sage's touch-screen coffee machine will make those cold mornings so much more bearable.

We reckon we'd find ourselves with a whole heap of brand new friends once we had this baby set up in the kitchen.

9. A chocolate massage at Fota Island Resort

This may be one of the most indulgent spa treatments available in Ireland, and the perfect Winter warmer.

The chocolate massage is the perfect remedy for mental and physical fatigue, promising to leave your skin feeling silky smooth and soft to the touch.

Cacao, renowned for its powerful antioxidant properties is mixed with essential oils, and smoothed over the body while tensions are worked out and skin is revived.

Chocolate as a cure for cellulite? We're in.

10. A faux fur hot water bottle

This luxurious snuggly hot water bottle is the perfect accessory for chilly nights in front of the telly.

Would it be weird if we brought it to work with us? Not if everyone else did, too.
