Let’s not beat around the bush here: Once the holidays come and go, winter’s a pretty miserable season. There’s something to be said for the romance of snow and the edgy sophistication inherent to any winter ensemble, but traipsing through the cold every time you have to get somewhere is both physically taxing and emotionally exhausting. The solution to this seasonal malaise is, of course, to stock up on hygge in any way you can—and fuzzy pillows offer a particularly kitschy avenue for doing so.
The most skeptical readers of this article are undoubtedly posing the question: What the fuck? Which, fair. It seems like every day there’s a new genre of trendy throw pillow to stock up on, and I’m helping no one achieve their Marie Kondo goals by advocating for the addition of several more pillows to the already overpopulated throw pillow party. Plus, who knew fuzzy pillows were a thing, anyway?
But hear me out. You unabashedly load up on cozy, fuzzy blankets—because they offer you a kind of snuggly joy that makes the winter more bearable. The only thing your hibernation nest is missing is a handful of equally cozy, equally fuzzy pillows; your favorite retailers’ current decor selections are a collective excuse to surround yourself with fluff in more ways than one—why not take them up on their offer?
Fuzzy pillows are everywhere. They’re cute, they’re cozy and they’re practically begging to help you get through this season. Let them—or at least humor them by window-shopping a few.
