aadaydreamblanketBaby, it’s cold outside, which means it’s the perfect time to snuggle on the couch with an aden + anais Adult Dream Blanket and a cup of hot chocolate in your “I’m a Genius” Travel Mug.”

Some people hate cool temperatures. And, when you’re a parent, your disdain for winter seems to increase significantly because it can be difficult keeping your little ones bundled up.  Uhhh, hello.. anyone have a baby who likes to pull off socks?

We want to make sure you and your children stay cozy in the cold, so for this week’s giveaway, three people will win winter gear, including a pair of bumGenius BabyLegs, a bumGenius “I’m a Genius” Travel Mug, and a $10 gift certificate to Cotton Babies.

To enter this week’s giveaway, tell us your tips for staying warm, or share some of your favorite indoor activities for when the weather outside is frightful.

    Layering is my only real tip for staying warm. I don’t live in a super cold climate (Texas), so we don’t get too freezing here.

    It’s rarely below 60 degrees here so we don’t have too many days where we are stuck inside, but one of the best cold day activities is doing puzzles!

    To stay warm, I sip hot tea, coffee or water almost all day! I also am never without my slippers. And cozying up on the couch with a good book with my favorite three munchkins is a sure way to stay warm and keep my little ones happy.
