It’s been a long week. A week where you’ve counted down the days to Sunday, the one day you can totally unwind in your own home and forget about the stresses of the workweek. Lazy Sundays have long been considered one of life’s simplest luxuries, but they’re even more enjoyable during the cold Canadian winters. Wrapping yourself up in a warm wooly blanket, lighting candles, cooking up a tasty treat and throwing on your favourite feel-good movie – there’s nothing like a lazy day spent at home.

Read on for 10 luxuries that will help you to achieve the perfect Lazy Sunday this winter, from the essentials like your favourite magazines and music to creature comforts like relaxing room spray and cashmere socks.
