The Maple Box Cozy Autumn Edition 2021 ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

“Arguably one of the most glorious seasons; the golden hues, the rustle of falling leaves, invigorating winds, cozy sweaters and warm homes filled with fragrant fare. The sense of abundance is everywhere.”

— Katherine Herringer, Co-founder & Editor, Maple Magazine

Hi everybody! I hope you had a nice weekend. We had our first flakes of snow but none that stayed — instead our yard is blanketed in maple leaves that crunch crunch underfoot, one of my favourite sounds of fall. (Right up there with the sound of the door closing behind the kids in the morning as they head off to school. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Fall is a gift that keeps on giving. ๐Ÿ˜‚) Speaking of gifts, today’s subscription box is a great gift idea for those on your list who appreciate life’s little luxuries but don’t want to accumulate a lot of “stuff”.

Start the day the best way, in a hygge atmosphere of warmth, wellbeing and coziness. But none of that happened. Instead I hit the snooze button three or four times before dragging myself downstairs to join the usual morning melee of lunch-making, homework-finding, sibling-bickering and out-the-door-getting before finally sitting down with my first cup of tea.

Canadian cozy, curated: The Hygge Holiday Box from Hygge in a Box ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

I received the Hygge Holiday Box in exchange for an honest review.

Well the Christmas lights turned into a project this weekend but we finally got them on the tree (not this tree, our big tree) and with the scent of fresh pine in the air and the snow outside the windows I can almost hear the tap-tapping of Santa’s reindeer on the roof. Christmas is just a few days off and I have a to-do list as long as my arm but I’m revelling in the cozy hygge moments of the season. The pair behind the Canadian subscription box Hygge in a Box curated a special Hygge Holiday Box filled with products to celebrate the Danish art of being cozy and feeling good about it and it’s wonderful, mes amies. Pour yourself a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa and take a look inside with me. Continue reading Canadian cozy, curated: The Hygge Holiday Box from Hygge in a Box ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ
