Hygge Holidays 101

"What freedom is to Americans ... hygge is to Danes."

Here's everything you need to know about the danish lifestyle trend taking over your Instagram feed.  It’s seriously about to get cozy in here. I'm sure you've heard the term before, but what in the world is hygge? Let's start with how you say it. Pronounced "hoo-ga," this Danish concept cannot be translated to one single word but encompasses a feeling of cozy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. If you've ever enjoyed reading a book indoors on a rainy Sunday or a cup of hot cocoa on a snow day, you've experienced hygge without even knowing it. Hygge is such an important part of being Danish. This national obsession with all things cozy is credited as one of the reasons why Denmark is always at the top of the list of the world's happiest countries, despite its infamously miserable winters. Now the rest of the world is beginning to catch on to this wonderful way of life. Let’s get down to business, here’s every product you need to bring hygge to your home this season.
