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.

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.

Here in the Northwest, we very rarely see a white Christmas. It’s usually a gray Christmas. Because of this, we’ve learned to make our own snow. Here are some ways I’d love to bring some homemade snow into my home this year:
