The Danish concept of Hygge has hit the American imagination hard this year. For those of you that have yet to discover this antidote to the fast-paced, work crazed world of American society, Hygge is the concept of comfortable coziness with the feeling of wellness and contentment among close friends and family. Hygge is drinking a cup of tea in front of the fire while the rain is pouring outside or having friends over to make a hearty dinner together to eat it in the living room on the comfy furniture by candle light. You refrain from technology, practice being present, and you spend quality time with those for whom you care and that make you happy.
Why not give the gift of luxurious comfort to get in the Hygge mood? Listed below are a few of our favorite options that are in the shop right now.
Kickee is a new brand to us, but has a multitude of dedicated customers that swear by them. This pajama set offers a relaxed fit and the fabric is made of 95% viscose from bamboo. In a classic design reminiscent of years past, these pajamas are the perfect thing for lounging in comfort when your home is full of company for the holiday.
For a base layer that will provide ultimate comfort wherever you go, Naked has come out with the Luxury collection and, let me tell you, they are not overhyping it. I personally bought this set as soon as possible and it has exceeded all my expectations. It is the softest thing I currently own and I can’t stop raving about it.
You can never go wrong with a Skin robe. These pieces are characterized by classic designs and are always crafted with the softest materials. In fact, many of Skin’s robes can boast 100% cotton – those are some big bragging rights!
This is the first season that Eberjey has put out socks and they have quickly become a staple in my winter lounge wardrobe. The best part of these slippers is that they have the look of a simple sock or knitted bootie, but they have rubberized dots on the bottom to keep you from flying down the stairs in the middle of the night.
