It’s always coldest just before spring, and March comes in like a lion soon. Long Islanders hunkering down for the last long nights of the season need extra-cozy items to make it through, and we have you covered, from snuggly, sweatered teapots to chunky blankets and fuzzy pillows. Sure, it’s been a chilling winter, but cuddling up with something soft makes it a lot more bearable.

Shaggy and silly, like the Puli mop dogs that inspired its design, this handspun wool throw pillow is 18 inches square and features a wool backing. Dry clean only. $195 at jonathanadler.com
Door Draft Blocker
A Door Draft Blocker like this one helps keep cold air out and warm air in. Just place this 36-inch-long polyester fleece at the base of any drafty door (or window) and watch heating bills go down, too. $9.99 at bedbathandbeyond.com and select Bed Bath and Beyond stores.
