Hygee (pronounced “hoo-gah”) is a Danish concept that has to do with making your home a cozy and pleasant place to be through the cold of winter. Since we spend most of our winters inside our homes, it only makes sense that we put some effort into bringing joy to our surroundings as we hibernate. This means surrounding yourself with things that make you feel cozy and warm like hot tea, pillows, candles, and family. Here are some DIY ways to bring hygee into your home.
Keep your hands and heart warm through winter with a nice hot drink. And keep it warm to sip for longer with an insulated cozy!
