Because we love a special edition: The Hello Summer Hygge in a Box πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

I used to think hygge was just for fall and winter but when I learned it’s more than being cozy but also being present, connecting to nature and loved ones, feeling at peace and enjoying simple pleasures (yes all of these things!) it was clear that hygge could be experienced any time of year. So what does summer hygge look like? Growing your own herbs and vegetables. Sharing stories around a campfire. Watching the sun set from your porch with a light blanket and an ice tea. Hygge Canada paired these ideas and others with a selection of hyggelig products in its Hello Summer Hygge in a Box and I’m happy happy to share it with you today. πŸ˜„ The box is one of several limited editions released throughout the year in addition to the seasonal (and generally larger) subscription boxes for spring, summer, winter and fall.

(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.

Celebrating warmth, wellbeing and all things cozy with the Hygge Day Box from Hygge in a Box πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

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

There’s a Danish proverb SΓΆde Ord fylde kun lidt i sakken (fine words butter no parsnips) and such was the case this morning. I had every intention of getting up an hour or so before the kids to enjoy a cup of tea with a blanket and the fireplace channel, maybe put a batch of cookies in the oven for the lunches and fill the house with the welcoming scent freshly baked goodness. 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.
