This year the kids made breakfast, cleaned up after, and we gave Dad this great Father’s Day Hygge Box from Hygge in a Box. It’s a thoughtful collection of Canadian products that encourage being mindful and enjoying the present, experiencing that wonderful sense of wellness and contentment that hygge in all about. Here’s a look inside.
