Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) is a concept born out of Denmark that represents gifts to nourish the soul of the recipient. It is all about simple pleasures that you can indulge in the winter. Think of it like snuggling up in bed with a warm blanket and a hot cocoa, or taking a bubble bath, or being next to a fireplace reading a book with some scented candles.Since it’s wintertime and the holiday celebrations are approaching, it’s a perfect opportunity to share this concept with your loved ones.
Here are some great ideas for hygge inspired gift ideas for this holiday:
Candles are the best way to create this specific type of ambiance in your home. Choose scented candles that are both warm and homey but subtle. In my opinion, Candlelix is the go-to place for hand-poured scented candles. They are a social impact and purpose driven company born in Brooklyn, NY. Apart from using organic soy wax and natural fragrance oils, they also aim to help the underprivileged kids in under-served neighborhoods in New York to participate in tech summer camps, coding and graphic design programs. They carry scents like Fireside, Leather or Amber Night, and I think these are perfect for that sort of hygge mood. Take a look at their website and see if there’s any scent that you’d like more. They are on Amazon too so if you prefer to shop there, visit their page.
It’s the winter so let them feel the warmth of your gifts as well. Take these slipper socks from Acorn for example. They have been around for a long time and they have great selections to cater every taste. Furthermore, they are so comfy and affordable. Not to mention that they are made out of wool, leather sole and memory foam foot bed for added support.It’s a great gift to walk comfortably and stay warm during the cold winter nights, while doing chores in the house, or when you are relaxing by the TV.
There is this winter tea collection from Tea Forte. It’s called Single Steeps because they have these loose leaf pouches that are good for a single brew. They have various flavors that include fruity, zesty and spicy. A perfect mix for staying warm in the winter, and a great fit for tea aficionados and those who like loose leaf teas. Finally, a tea company that has come up with a very convenient way for us to enjoy a perfect cup of tea.
These are some suggestions that might spice up the winter days for you and your loved ones. Of course, other ideas include a great warm meal, where you can all gather together and talk about your year, while enjoying some homey food and drinks. I hope that you will be able to find an inspiration that will be suitable for your loved ones. Happy Holidays!
