Canadian cozy, curated: The Hygge Holiday Box from Hygge in a Box πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

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.

Today’s subscription box is designed to help you find harmony by creating a holiday atmosphere of moderation, simplicity and beautiful design. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, Norlii Box is a bi-monthly delivery of Scandinavian home and lifestyle goods.

Hygge in a Box sent me their Holiday Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.Β 

Taking comfort in simple pleasures is what comes to mind whenever I think of ‘hygge’ but it’s more than that. Hygge in a Box is a quarterly subscription box for those looking to find meaningful hygge moments with productsΒ that touch on some of the key elements of the concept: Warmth, Light, Nourishment, Comfort, Connection, Joy, Mindfulness and Nature, all made in small batches by Canadian artisans and businesses.
