Hygge (prounounced ‘hoo-gah’) is a Danish + Norweigan word for a sense of cozy conetentment. It’s that feeling you get when you’re snuggled up inside with a cup of adatogenic tea with the snow falling outside. Or watching a movie on a bitter cold day. Or reading a good book with fuzzy socks on. It’s an enjoyment of the simple things in life.
It’s easy to complain about how cold it is, how the wind hurts our faces, and that we can’t wait until summer. But I love living in a place with seasons. The energy of each season has something to teach us and winter provides a the space for rest + relaxation - a time to go within. Here is a round up of gift ideas for the Hygge Homebody ::
