What is Hygge?
Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) is a Danish word that doesn't have a direct translation in English. It's all about creating a warm and cozy atmosphere, and enjoying the simple pleasures of life. It's about finding joy in the little things and taking the time to slow down and appreciate the present moment.
At Wonderfully Made, we cherish true connection, intentional moments and slow living, and so we knew that a gift designed around hygge would fit right into our Pre-Designed collection.
Why A Hygge Gift Box?
In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to get caught up in the hustle of everyday life. We often forget to take a moment for ourselves and just relax. That's where hygge comes in. It reminds us to prioritize self-care and to create a space where our natural selves can feel safe, unwind and recharge.
The Hygge gift box I had the pleasure of designing includes everything your recipient needs to embrace hygge. First, there's a soft and cozy, waffle patterned throw blanket that she can wrap herself in on a chilly evening. It's perfect for snuggling up on the couch with a good book.
And so, of course, the gift box also holds the book, "The Little Book of Hygge" by Meik Wiking. It's a small, perfect-for-a-coffee-table sized book that's filled with tips and inspiration on how to incorporate hygge into daily life. Whether your recipient is looking for ideas to create a hygge-inspired home or ways to practice self-care, this book is a fantastic source for slowing down and enjoying the little things.
Lastly, if you know even just a little about hygge, you'll know that no hygge experience is complete without a candle. And so, this luxury gift box includes a 6oz Egyptian cotton scented candle, and a vial of matches to go with it. Because there's something so satisfying about striking a match and watching the flame come to life. It's a small but meaningful ritual that adds to the overall hygge experience.
Why I Created This Gift Box
I created this gift box because I believe in the power of truly enjoying the small, everyday moments. I've personally experienced the beautiful, overwhelming benefits of slowing down, finding balance and creating a cozy space for myself.
By putting together this gift box, I wanted to share the joy of hygge with others. I wanted to create a tangible way for people to incorporate hygge into their lives and to remind them to take a moment for themselves.
So, I encourage you to, if you know someone who could use a little extra coziness, consider giving this gift box to foster a deeper connection with her.
Give an intentional gift; share a crafted moment.
