What is Hygge anyway?

Hygge is the idea of feeling warm, cozy, and happy at home all winter long. Here’s 10 plus items to help you live the hygge lifestyle.

The Little Book of Hygge

For those of you who like to research, this books will tell you everything you need to know about hygge.  It’s on my wish list for Christmas.

Looking for some other good books?  Here’s my list of 7 books to read for a better life.

Bath and Bodyworks 3 Wick Candles

I teach music out of my home, so from September to May my house needs to smell good.  These candles have rescued me more than once.  It’s also one of my favourite gifts from my students!

Good Quality Tea

Lately I’ve been filling up my teapot for the evening and sipping on tea all evening long.  I’ve been drinking Celestial Seasonings tea for as long as I can remember.  Check out the holiday varieties, they’re my favourites!

Cute Mug for all your Warm Drinks

While any beautiful mug will do, I’m partial to this Rae Dunn one.

Stove Top Tea Kettle

Yes, I know an electric one does the job just as well.  Yet there’s something so soothing to the soul when the hot water comes from a tea kettle off of the stove.  I’ve pictured one that’s similar to the one in my kitchen.

A Super Cosy Blanket

Nothing says snuggly like a beautiful white and grey blanket.

Fleece Sheets

I have a small love affair with fleece sheets.  The Hermit gets too hot to have them on our bed, but whenever I stay over at my Mom’s she makes sure that they’re on the bed I’m sleeping in.  Pure bliss, especially if you’re cold ALL. THE. TIME.


Whether you prefer leather, suede, or fur lined, moccasins are a good investment to keep your feet warm for many winters to come.

A Beautiful, Cozy Sweater

I have something similar to this sweater in red and I practically live in it all winter long.

Marble and Wood Cheese Board for Serving Your Guests in Style

Though neither marble nor wood may seem particularly cozy, I love the look of cheese or appetizers set out on one of these stylish serving boards.

Winter Greenery & Twigs

Simple and timeless winter greens add a touch of nature to your home.  You can buy fake or go out in your yard and clip a few sprigs.  Up for some DIY?  I’ll show you how to make your own sparkly winter twigs with epsom salts, sparkles, and glue.

Hurricane Lantern

Your house may not be blessed with a fireplace, but you can add some ambiance with a vintage-style hurricane lantern.

Twinkly Lights

Who says that lights are just for Christmas?

Winter Dishes

I love these picks from Ikea and personally own and love the plates.  I was VERY tempted to bring the bowls home with me too, but one can only have so much stuff!
