I know, I know. It’s really pronounced hoo-gah, but we just can’t resist a good pun around here. As much as I really hate winter, I have been trying to rally around the concept of hygge this year.
Hygge was created to help the Danes survive the cold, dark sameness of their long, boring winters. I feel ya Danes! So, things like enjoying a hot steaming cup of coffee in an earthy mug, a beautiful scented (non-toxic!) candle, and curling up by the fire with a good book are all examples of h to the y to the g g e.
So, here’s my guide for adding a little hygge to your life.
Fuzzy Socks – These could double as a V-Day gift, too.
Scented (yet, safe) Candle
Body Oil that smells deliciously like grapefruit, sweet orange, and rosemary while being super-moisturizing.
Girlfriends – these jokers will do!
Coffee Mug – Loomis and I both need this one.
A good read – this page turner kept me up at night.
Dogs – and Liev Schreiber (why not?)
Facial Mask – Brighten up that dull winter skin.
Easy dinner – Plant based and my kids ate it, too. #score
Now, no excuses. Go hygge it up, people!
