๐Ÿฌ Squish Gummy Lover Club ๐Ÿฌ ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

A coworker and I were talking at the end of a long shift.

Me: Dang, my back is killing me.

Coworker: Join the club.

Me: Is it like a back support group?

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I don’t why I thought I needed a joke to warm you up for this post. If you’ve read this far you’re probably smiling already. I mean, a club for gummy lovers! What’s not to like? ๐Ÿ˜€ We’ve been fans of Montreal artisanal candy co. Squish since day one so when I was ordering some of their gummy gift boxes for Christmas and saw they’d launched their own subscription service I was like tell me more! Available in classic and vegan and shipped every other month, the highly giftable Gummy Lover Club offers subscribers the chance to sample a curated assortment from some 50+ gourmet gummy flavours plus collectible stickers. Squish sent me December’s classic delivery to try. Shall we take a look?

Because we love a special edition: The Hello Summer Hygge in a Box ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

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.

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. ๐Ÿ˜„ 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. Let’s look inside.

Practicing hygge and self-care with the seasons: Hygge in a Box Spring 2021 ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

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. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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? ๐Ÿ˜‚) 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.
