A cosy night in with Victoria Centre Article

With the changing clocks and colder nights, many are swapping a night on the town for a quieter night in. To make sure you and your home are feeling the cosiest for the colder months, we’ve put together a list of our favourite autumnal items to be found at Victoria Centre.

John Lewis & Partners

No drink shouts autumn more than a deliciously rich hot chocolate.

The Rolls Royce of the hot drinks gadgets is the Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser Hot Chocolate Maker. At just the touch of a button, the in-home barista-grade hot chocolate machine makes the perfect chocolatey treat in just two and a half minutes.

With ten flavors to choose from, including salted caramel, hazelnut, dark chocolate with chilli and supermilk with blood orange - the grated chocolate is melted to the perfect temperature before being whisked and folded into the milk, perfectly velvetising your hot chocolate.

This item is priced at £110.00.

Whether you're planning to spend the day snuggled up on the sofa, or your working from home day is free of video calls, keep extra cosy with the ANYDAY Extreme Oversized Hoodie.

A kangaroo pouch and hood give a classic hoodie style, while the oversized cut means it’s the perfect item to throw on for cosying up on chilly evenings.

This item is priced at £35.00 and is available in Navy and Grey. For more John Lewis & Partners night in goodies, visit instore or click here.

On wet and rainy days, is there anything better than cosying up with a good book? With so many to choose from it can be hard to know which one to pick up first, so we’ve compiled a list of top choices from the WHSmith Books Chart.

The debut novel by Pointless presenter Richard Osman, The Thursday Murder Club is an intelligent comedy mystery that’s left readers captivated and laughing out loud.

In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet once a week to investigate unsolved murders. But when a brutal killing takes place on their doorstep, the Thursday Murder Club find themselves in the middle of their first live case. They might be pushing on 80, but the four companions still have few tricks up their sleeves.

This item is available in paperback for £6.29.

For the very first time, Billy Connolly shares intimate details of his life, in his own words in a full-length autobiography. Windswept & Interesting: My Autobiography is an unforgettable story of a comic legend, packed full of hilarious tales and words of wisdom. This is not one to be missed.

This item is available in a hardback for £12.50.

Before Stanley Tucci became a household name with The Devil Wear Prada and The Hunger Games, he grew up in an Italian American family with a passion for food. In Taste: My Life Through Food, he shares his well loved recipes and the captivating stories that accompany them.

Written in Stanley’s signature wry wit and nostalgia, Taste is a heartwarming and irresistible read to warm the soul while tempting the taste buds.
