EMBRACING THE COMFORT OF HYGGE STYLE 

You might have seen social media pictures or books about “hygge” and wondered what it was all about. The Danish term has become a lifestyle phenomenon, with many embracing the value of comfort, coziness, community, and well-being. You can hygge your home, your mindset, and even your wardrobe. You may even already be a fan, looking for hygge gifts. Here we share info about the concept and a collection of shoes with snugly hygge vibes.

WHAT IS HYGGE?

Hygge pronunciation sounds like “hue-ga.” Year after year, Danish folk are recorded as being among the happiest in the world. While hygge has long been a part of their culture, it’s seen a rise in popularity in America.

The hygge definition is tricky because there isn’t a direct translation for English. It’s essentially a feeling that expresses contentment and coziness. Hygge is the comfy way you feel when nestling in fuzzy blankets, drinking a cup of hot tea, gathering with friends for a home-cooked meal, wearing soft sweaters and socks, or enjoying the flickering glow of candlelight. It’s mindful relaxation, taking time out from the pressures of the world and being present with loved ones. Hygge can also extend to self-care or being outdoors to appreciate nature.

It’s all about taking pleasure in simple luxuries and savoring the moment. With life’s busyness, we invite you to welcome a little hygge into your life.
