A warm cup of tea, a square of chocolate, a handful of nuts, or a long, pampering bath with scented salts and a glass of red wine.

As the temperatures drop and we head towards the middle of winter, it’s only natural to go looking for ideas on how to keep warm.

The most obvious place to start is with a good cup of tea or coffee.

For an extra feel-good touch of warmth, why not source your favourite brew from a Sunshine Coast local and bath in the glow of supporting the community.

Whether it’s a bag of coffee beans from Marcoola’s Cuba St Coffee Roasters, a Bedtime brew from Coolum’s Planet Organic, or a tin of Mountain Chai from the Tea Shop, there are plenty of tasty local options around that are sure to provide a welcome lift in body temperature.

Food can be another great source of heat – with chillis and chocolate immediately jumping to mind.

The good folk at Maleny’s Gourmet Afrika have taken the humble chilli and added it to all manner of sauces and chutneys, even blending it together with chocolate to create a Chocolate Chilli Brandy Sauce which offers all sorts of heart-warming opportunities in the kitchen.

When it comes to chocolate the flavour choices available are wide and varied. Whether it’s unadulterated milk chocolate or dark chocolate you’re looking for, or delicious mixes such as Raspberry Fever from Sunshine Coast wholesaler Kokopod, Australian Almonds coated in chocolate from Noosa Chocolate Company, or Peppermint Infused Dark Chocolate from the Naked Chocolate Co, the caffeine and sugar hit on offer is sure to bring a temperature spike.

For another guaranteed body warmer, a hot bath is sure to get the skin tingling with happiness. Adding a touch of luxury with bath salts from the likes of The Soap Bar at Maleny is certain to enhance the experience and bring a contented shine.
