stay warm in bed

With the autumnal nights getting cooler, today I’ve got a simple tip to stay warm in bed without increasing your heating bills.

And yes, if you read Wednesday’s post then I am definitely all about the sleep lately.  My littlest one is teething and has had a stinky cold, so needless to say no-one is getting much sleep in our house.  Hence why all the thoughts about sleep!

Anyway, enough about my sleep deprivation and back to staying warm in bed this autumn and winter.

This tip could also be titled: a simple tip for marital harmony.  It’s multipurpose, I do like a good two for one.

It’s really simple.  In fact, it couldn’t be simpler.  If you have a double bed, instead of opting for a double duvet, switch to a king size duvet.  If you have king size bed, switch to a super king sized duvet.

This way there is enough duvet to go round, especially if one of you (ahem, me) is a duvet hog.  It’s a bedtime game changer, I promise.

We’ve done this duvet trick since we’ve been together and it definitely helps minimise the duvet hog arguments, and keeps you both warm.  It’s also great if small children have a habit of creeping into your bed of a morning.

In case you’re worried, a larger duvet doesn’t look weird, and doesn’t trail on the ground either.  I honestly wouldn’t go back to having a double duvet on a double bed again.

If I’ve convinced you on the benefits, and you’re in the market to size up your duvet and bedding, then here’s a handy guide to ethical bedding that I put together a little while ago that you might find useful.

Do you have any other tips on how to stay warm in bed this winter?
