The winner, chosen at random, will also receive a ‘Cosy Bundle.’ This is made up of a large throw blanket, slippers, candles and a duvet and pillowcase set like the gorgeous white ruffled one above.

Blankets, draught excludes and high tog duvets go a long way in keeping things toasty. And a soft and luxurious dressing gown like Matalan's cable knit gown in cream definitely makes evenings in that bit cosier.
