Hygge in a Box Fall 2021 πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Time: *heals all wounds*

Daylight Savings Time: *stabs me in the leg*

— Ian Dukes

It’s been a week since we turned back the clocks and 5 p.m. still seems like midnight. I feel like someone stabbed me in the leg *and* ran over me with a truck, LOL. “Since the days are cooler and darker it is important to have something to look forward to,” say Hygge in a Box founders Jill Kantor and Lisa Kroft, “this is why hygge is so popular during this time of year.” Wrapping yourself in a cozy blanket, bundling up for a walk with a friend, making a giant pot of delicious stew — now is the time to pull out all the hygge stops — especially on those days when it’s hard just to pull yourself out of bed.

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

“Look out for any signs of springtime unfolding around you and enjoy the sense of comfort it brings you.” — Hygge in a Box

A few new tulips have bloomed in our front yard this year and it makes me happy every time I see them standing tall. Especially since they’re right in front of the dryer vent. Their days are numbered. πŸ˜‚ I feel like the Nordic must have a word for the particular kind of contentment that comes with admiring flowers but all I could find was kalsarikannit, what the Finnish call getting drunk in your underwear with no intention of going out. (Maybe they’re not so different? πŸ˜‚) If you’re looking for ways to practice hygge and self-care with the seasons, Hygge in a Box delivers them to you. The spring box arrived last week filled with a carefully curated variety of Canadian-made products and ideas for celebrating the simple pleasures this time of year brings.
