Before we jump into these lovely gifts, let’s talk more about hygge…
What is the Definition of Hygge?
Hygge (pronounced hue-guh not hoo-gah), refers to “a form of everyday togetherness”.
Hygge is a feeling. It’s about the atmosphere, experience and being with the people we love.
In The Little Book of Hygge it’s referred to… “A feeling of home. A feeling of that we are safe, that we are shielded from the world.”
Examples of Hygge
Hygge can mean different things to different people, but in general, hygge is something that makes us content, feel cozy, feel-good…
- A great conversation with a friend
- Relaxing with a cup of tea
- Immersing yourself in a great book by the fire
- Sharing a meal with loved ones
- Watching the rainfall
- Listening to music by candlelight
- Afternoon nap cuddled up with a cozy blanket
This list could go on forever as hygge to you and I can be completely different.

6. Hygge Candles & Candle Holders
Tea Light Holders
Set of 4 beechwood tea light holders give a Scandinavian feeling of coziness to any room.
Natural Beeswax & Soy Candles
Beeswax and Soy candles are a safe, natural candle to use and don’t give off synthetic scents like your typical ‘scented candle’. They do cost more than cheap candles but burn for many more hours and don’t hinder your health.
If you want to choose a scented candle make sure it’s scented with essential oils and not synthetic chemicals – like this Meyer’s Lavender Soy Candle.
