Here’s to Hygge!
I joined the Hygge (pronounced HOOga) Life Facebook page after reading about the Danish concept of comfort. Members share ideas about what makes life more cozy for them. I learn a lot about warm fuzzies from member responses on these pages. Here is a list of 30 ways your life, too, can be more Hygge:
- plenty of plants/ fresh flowers
- a heated blanket
- sherpa-lined slippers
- the sounds of a trickling fountain
- an electric tea kettle
- a Keurig
- a dog or cat
- a fireplace
- scented candles
- fairy lights
- stretch jeans
- a weighted blanket
- artwork of favorite places
- cabin socks
- a down coat
- flannel pajamas
- a hammock or swinging chair
- good books
- a hand-warmer mug
- birdfeeders by windows
- cheery dishes
- an alpaca duvet
- a memory foam mattress topper
- wooden windchimes
- crystal window rainbow makers
- China tea sets
- a hot tub
- a soft rice pack shaped to rest on your shoulders, heated with lavender oil
- a variety of herbal teas
- soft music
Here’s to Hygge in your life! Please share your own tips in the comments.

I love a list slice, and this one conjures such comfort and ease. I am now convinced I need more hygge in my life (I've also been pronouncing it wrong!).
OK, you and I share nine Hygge ways. Thank you for sharing! I know I have more of my own.
I've been pronouncing it wrong, too! I have so many of these things in my home…guess I'm cozy over here! Your list is comforting to read. 🙂
Nice list, Kim. I have never even heard or seen the Danish word! I've added it to my list of possible posts, but for now here are a few of my comforts, making life cozy for me…macaroni and cheese, my Lazy Boy double recliner with my hubby on one side and me on the other, a pot of Karak tea. Thanks for asking, I'm feeling more cozy now, just thinking about it.
Hygge was my one little word a couple years ago. It’s a wonderful idea. There’s a book, which I own but haven’t read. I’ll need to get that remedied. Of course, fur babies and books appeal to me most. I need to shop for most of the other items!
I. Love. This. List! Hats or hooded sweatshirts would make my list in addition to many of yours.
