The Star's hunter-gatherer, Durell Godfrey, went shopping for "cozies" so that everyone can stay warm against the winter chill. Bundle up for a beach walk, or cuddle after walking the dog. Indoors or out, take these warm wishes, wrap them up, and share them. Remember to shop locally and drive carefully.

SOPHISTICATED COZY: So warm, so soft, so snuggly, an alpaca throw is what you want after a day outside, or a day watching the weather outside from inside! This one can be monogrammed for your special friend or for yourself. Wonderful neutral colors available. $345. The Monogram Shop, 19 Newtown Lane, East Hampton

COZY INSIDES: Ward off a chill with a snifter of brandy (at room temperature, of course). Don't forget to take tiny sips and let it roll around on your tongue. Brandy is an experience, not just a gift. $75 at local liquor stores and Wolffer Estate, 139 Sagg Road, Sagaponack

COZY BOTTOMS: The weather is frightful, the cat wants to snuggle with you. Where do you go? To the comfy chair, feet up, remote in your hand. We dare you to stay awake. Berlin lounge canvas chair $549, ottoman $299. Restoration Hardware, 69 Main Street, East Hampton

COZY AMBIENCE: Create an atmosphere of warmth, mystery, and some romance with this smoky quartz votive for real or battery votive lights. Additional colors and sizes available. $450 for the "classic" size; a larger version is also available. Hudson|Grace, 17 Washington Street, Sag Harbor

WARM HEART: These earrings will warm her holidays -- what a wonderful present! Get dressed up for a cozy New Year's supper a deux. Colorful and charming, she will love these "open hearts" -- and you. Rose gold, diamonds, and mixed-color sapphires, $495. London Jewelers, 2 Main Street, East Hampton

CRAFTY COZY: Knitting is a wonderful skill to have! Consider the gift of lessons with a pile of wool and needles tied in a bow, or just stay inside and make a bunch of hats or gaiters for friends and family. This yarn is called "rasta" and each skein is unique. Yarn and lessons: Black Sheep Knitworks, 47 Newtown Lane, East Hampton

COZY TOES-IES: Inside or outside, nobody wants to get cold feet. You don't want to be chilly when you are chilling. For you or for your buddy or both, wishing you fabulous tootsies. Uggs, of course. Pink slippers $110, leopard boots $171.63. Shoe Inn, 52 Newtown Lane, East Hampton

VINTAGE COZY: Pendleton blankets make for a warm throw-back, and the design is woven to reverse. Use on a bed or wrap around your honey to watch a winter sunset (or sunrise). One of a collection. $250. Annyx, 150 Main Street, Sag Harbor

BE COZY OUTSIDE: A nifty gifty for mother and daughter, sisters, or your most stylish friends. Feel at home in the city or the country, hiking the High Line or the Walking Dunes. $78. Henry Lehr, 154 Main Street, Amagansett, 16 Newtown Lane, East Hampton, and 102 Main Street, Sag Harbor

ZANY AND WARM: Every guy on your list needs a wacky pair of socks. There are so many available, so hunter-gatherer picked her favorites. Check them out, $24 each pair. J.McLaughlin, 2442 Montauk Highway, Bridgehampton, 2 Jobs Lane, Southampton

COZY KID: A kid or an ironic sea captain will love "Wilber" the whale, soft and mushy with a sweet expression and a twinkle in his eye. Tie a bow around his tail and that's all the gift wrap you will need. (There's a hammerhead shark available too, in case you are giving to siblings!) $42.50. Petit Blue, 86 Park Place, East Hampton

COZY OUTSIDE: Brilliant in color and concept, this jacket uses no down, thus saving some ducks their feathers. Windproof also. Nifty to be cool and warm at the same time! $328. Sylvester & Co., 103 Main Street, Sag Harbor

FOR THE GUYS: Those special gents in your life know what they love: cozy plaids. For a casual dinner outside (under a heater!), a Netflix date inside by the fire, a day on the job, or warming up after a day of surfing (brrrrr). $89.50 each. J.Crew, 14 Main Street, East Hampton
