10 cozy and comforting hygge gifts
Cozy, comforting and congenial is the best way to summarize the Danish concept of hygge.
Pronounced ‘hoo-guh’, this lifestyle of looking after yourself and your emotional well-being makes me love the Danes even more. We’re talking cozy sweaters, roaring log fires and guilt-free eating (maybe even with a helping of cream).
And, as the Christmas holidays approach, giving the gift of hygge is something that everyone will appreciate.
This gift guide lists 10 cozy and comforting hygge gifts, ideal for cold winter days and even chillier winter nights.
1. Danish hygge socks
Keep pinkies warm and toasty throughout the colder months with a pair of these thick Danish hygge socks. Made from a cotton blend (more than 65%), there’s no chance of any arctic snap getting through.
Wear them around the house, or in bed, you can say bye-bye to frosty feet.
2. ICEWEAR Elís sweater
If you’ve never heard of the ICEWEAR brand, it’s time to get educated. Made in Iceland from 100% Icelandic wool, these sweaters were made for winter, and for hygge too.

7. Scandikitchen: Fika & Hygge
Undeniably one of my favourite elements of hygge is being able to indulge in some delicious cakes and baked goods.
Fika and hygge in one — hygge gifts
This colorful cookbook rolls 2 Scandinavian concepts into one. Fika is a Swedish term that means having a cup of coffee or tea with something sweet. When combined with the cozy elements of hygge, winter is something to look forward to, not dread.
The book contains different chapters on how you can bring fika and hygge into your life. From bread and batters, cookies and cakes to everyday fika, it’s a must-have Scandinavian bakery book.
Bring the scents of the Norwegian fjords into your home with the Skandinavisk Fjord diffuser.
Capturing the essence and the scents of the coniferous forests and dramatic waterfalls, this diffuser brings Scandinavia to you.
The set features a painted glass vase (Danish design) and 8 rattan reed sticks. A scent that will last for 3+ months, you can enjoy the spirit of hygge for that much longer.
9. Paddywax Candle, tobacco and vanilla
Keep the hygge burning through the winter months with this beautiful Paddywax Candle.
The 15oz matte white ceramic container is filled with a soy wax candle. Once lit, it releases the heavenly aromas of tobacco flower, cinnamon and vanilla into your home. A chic copper lid covers the candle until you’re ready to use it again.
Hand poured in the USA, you can use the ceramic container for other uses once it’s finished. Beautifully capturing the concept of hygge, it’s a gift that will continue to keep on giving.
10. Hygge time mug
Brew up a large pot of coffee or tea, and snuggle beneath the covers with this hygge time mug.
Featuring traditional Scandinavian folk art of a sleeping fox, it’s a nice addition to your hygge collection. Made from porcelain, the mug’s dishwasher resistant and is also scratch proof.
