You may have come across the buzz word ‘Hygge’ lately – a Danish word used to describe the concept of living well and simply. Cosiness. Serenity.

It’s about taking that time to ground those beans, brew them and enjoy your hot cup of steaming coffee whilst taking in it’s warming scent as you snuggle up with your favourite cashmere socks. Or perhaps something even more simple – like lighting candles whilst having dinner with your friends to create a more intimate atmosphere for what should always be a special and communal moment.

We particularly love the way the White Company have created these adorable pine cone present wraps (1) – which are the perfect opportunity to make you slow down and enjoy the process of gift wrapping, as opposed to thoughtlessly throwing your presents in paper or asking the store to do it for you. Hygge is about being in a blissful state of pure peace where you can appreciate the small things and detach yourself from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.

How about incorporating a little more Hyyge in to your life? It doesn’t have to be much – but it can make a big difference to your day and how it makes you feel – particularly a this hectic time of year. We say, cosy up your home, brew your favourite hot drink and take time to do what fills your heart with happiness!
