Winter weather has a way of dramatically changing plans. Whether a few inches or several feet has fallen, a snow day is an excuse to ditch anything remotely productive for a low-key agenda of binge-watching TV on the couch. A lazy afternoon sounds perfect—until you realize how bored you are. To save you from actually having to put on snow boots and go outside (unbearable, we know), we rounded up a few key items to keep you entertained when your nap count is already at two, and refreshing the same three apps isn’t getting more interesting.
Dunkin’ Hot Cocoa K-Cups 60 ct.
Snacks are a must for any snow day, so keep plenty stowed away in preparation (you’ll be hitting up the pantry more than once). To fuel up for a gloriously busy day of procrastinating, grab your favorite stash of hot cocoa—also known as the elixir for being snowed in. Throw one of these Dunkin’ K-Cup pods into your Keurig® brewer and you’ve got a piping-hot mug of chocolatey goodness in minutes. Tip: You’ll want to have those mini-marshmallows handy.
Roku Ultra Streaming Media Player
The Roku Ultra media player lets you jump between apps so you can choose from an absurd number of movies and TV shows. In other words, your binge just got so much better. This one comes with headphones, or permission to watch that epic finale at whatever volume you can handle. (The guy you share a wall with thanks you in advance).
Being stuck inside all day as an adult is basically the same as it was when you were a kid—ample opportunity for gaming. You can play the Nintendo Switch literally anywhere using the handheld capability, but we recommend docking it for HD play from your TV. Break only for hot chocolate refills.
HBO ‘Game of Thrones’ Trivia Game
GOT addicts, this is the moment you’ve been waiting for. Flex on your roommates or significant other with your textbook, mostly-useless-except-in-this-scenario knowledge of the show. That’s right, winter is here (sorry).
‘A Cosmology of Monsters: A Novel’
When your eyes are about to glaze over from staring at a screen, switch to a good old-fashioned book—this spooky one is about a family haunted across generations by monsters. Cue the fireplace (even if it’s streamed from Youtube to the TV) and ominous music.
SoundLink Revolve Portable Bluetooth Speaker
$149.00 (25% off)
Listen to your top songs from 2019 or the podcast you’ve been meaning to catch up on with this sleek speaker (maybe even while cooking that recipe you’ve been wanting to try?).
