Okay, what is Hygge?

Hygge is the Danish and Norwegian art of cosiness, comfort and general well-being. Pronounced ‘hoo-gah’, the hygge mindset encourages us all to embrace the winter months and celebrate them through relaxing time spent indoors, in a soothing atmosphere.

The ultimate hygge scene includes a crackling fire, the glow of a scented candle, cosy chunky-knit socks, a soft blanket, a mug of warm drink and a stylish notebook to journal your feelings in.

Denmark is consistently ranked at the top of the happiness charts, so we think the Danish are on the right track! Why not add a touch of Hygge to your life this winter?
