The Bookblock Guide To… Evenings In

Whether you want to treat yourself to something for your evenings in, or gift someone else, it's all about making the space feel as cosy and inviting as possible.

For comfort and cosiness, opt for things that have a personal touch – from French chocolates to orange & cinnamon candles, here are a few options to make sure evenings indoors are a no brainer. 

A candle or two… or three
Something you can never have too many of, you can get really creative by picking a different scented candle for each room. For the bedroom, something to help get a good night’s sleep is the Flora Lane lavender & vanilla candle (the ultimate winter warmer!) with a comforting blend of smells and perfect for cosy nights in. For the bathroom, something that creates a warm, relaxing atmosphere is the Evergreen candle by Byrd & Bay, a lively candle with scents of lemon, bergamot and mandarin which create a refreshing body that is beautifully contrasted by juniper and a sensual base of amber, musk and woods. For the living room, something fresh – English Pear and Freesia by Älska, a heady, sweet and floral scent that has all the aromas of an English summer.

A treat all year around but especially in the colder months, this is the perfect option if someone drinks cups of tea morning, day and night. Start with the Cosmos Turquoise Mug by Porland, 100% porcelain and great for a morning brew. Then, select your tea. Our range of Bookblock Deli organic tea & herbal blends are just the ticket for any loose leaf tea lovers. Choose from three blends; MIND, BODY and SOUL


Copper Clip Spoon
Next is the copper tea infuser – ideal for keeping tea (and coffee) leaves fresh, it’s the perfect blend of form and function, and doubles up as a measure. For a unique tea maker, you can’t go wrong with the glass tea maker by Teministeriet. Sleek and modern, your brew will be delicious, every time. To finish off, (and before setting up camp on the sofa for the rest of the evening), choose the perfect mug for your brew.  The ultimate tea kit.

Smell and skin
For the skincare fanatic, it’s important to have all of the right products for cosy evenings in and there are so many pamper products to choose from. First, get the place smelling delightful with a Flora Lane diffuser. A gorgeous combination of wild jasmine and plum, this diffuser is sophisticated and the best part? It releases fragrances for up to 6 months so it’s perfect for keeping the place smelling fresh and vibrant all the time.

To de-stress, bath bombs are always a lovely gift. It’s something we rarely buy for ourselves unless we’re actively trying to indulge in some self-care, so for unwinding, bath time is a necessity. This lavender scented bath bomb is both fragrant and moisturising, and it’s 100% natural too.

Pamper gifts are only complete when you add in something solely for the skin – this Lavender Moisturising Cream (made with all natural ingredients) is a great choice. Carrying on with that moisturising and nourishing feel, this can be used as both a day or night cream, so use this before you hop onto the sofa with a cup of the tea. It’s full of medical lavender oil as well as anti-oxidising Vitamin E to help nourish your skin, while relaxing your soul with its gentle scent. Ideal for evenings in.
