Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment. Think ALL things cozy, comfortable, and warm that promote well being.
I have been practicing hygge before I even knew it was a thing. If you love all things warm and cozy and creating a welcoming and comfortable home, check out these Gifts for the Hygge Lover!
