Autumn might bring the promise of golden leaves, guilt-free hot chocolates and roaring fires, but it also brings rain, draughts and grey skies. Sorry, didn't mean to bring you down so early in the week.

BUT! There's some good news – all that's a perfect excuse to inject new life into your home with cosy buys to keep you warm. Yes! And, the cosier the buys, the lower you can set your thermostat, so it's all actually a financially savvy investment anyway. Or at least that's what we like to tell ourselves...

Anyhoo, we've gathered our top five cosy buys from Dunelm's gorgeous autumn/winter collection so that you can cocoon yourself happily in your home as the colder weather set in.

There's no better way to update your bedroom for the colder months than by switching your bedding for a more wintry pattern. Whether it's classic checks in deep shades such as burgundy or midnight blue, stylish stags heads or cute Fair Isle patterns, giving the largest feature in your room a wintry twist is an easy way to add instant cosiness. Catherine Lansfield Stag silver duvet cover and pillowcase set, £20.

2. A Fluffy rug (that has multiple uses), £35

There's just something so amazing about stepping with bare feet onto a fluffy rug. And these designs from Dunelm are small enough to throw across your sofa or an armchair, too, for extra warmth when you're settling down to read a good book. We suggest you buy more than one – they're going to be popular. Sheepskin rug, £35.

3. Thermal curtains to keep out wintry draughts, £20
