With the holidays just around the corner, our goal in life is to achieve peak hygge at home. You know, that effortlessly cozy ambiance that makes guests want to curl up on the sofa and stay forever.

And Kate Beckinsale has totally nailed it. We recently caught up with the Underworld star at the U.S. launch of U.K. appliance experts Russell Hobbs (where she is a brand ambassador) and tapped the actress for her top hostess tips.

“A common way to make overnight guests in the U.K. feel right at home is by leaving a filled hot water bottle next to their bed,” she explained. “It’s so warm and cozy.” Well, doesn’t that sound simply delightful?

And she’s an equally thoughtful guest. “I always like to bring a personalized sweet treat to thank the hostess of a party I’m attending,” she tells us. “Cookies or M&M’s monogrammed with the hostess’s initials always do the trick!”

Feel free to come over to ours anytime, Kate. Seriously.
