How many ways can we Reconnect? The simple answer? There are millions of ways. But if we’re really getting down to what we need to reconnect, whether with ourselves or the ones we love, I think that the first thing we need to do is slow down a bit. Everything about life nowadays is about being fast; fast internet, fast work, fast phones, and slowing down just doesn’t seem to make sense. For me, it is more than necessary to take a little time to just take a breather, have a hot cup of coffee, and decide what I want to do. So when we found Hygge Box the concepts of hygge (hyoo-gah) just sparked a light.
“Hygge is the Danish lifestyle of coziness, happiness and enjoying life’s simple pleasures.” How perfect is that? For this month’s Reconnect #TreatYoSelfTote2018 we wanted to share the tools we loved with you guys, start the year off simple and cozy while reconnecting with who you are and the people you love.
Before the Hygge Box was born in 2017 the Creator (secrets can be friends) and her husband were visiting Sweden on vacation from all the hustle and bustle. It was after they returned home that it hit her how little they really needed to fill content. The trip was spent mostly in a small cabin, surrounded by good people, warm candle light, warm beverages, and cozy blankets (sounds like heaven to me!) and literally dog-sledding from cabin to cabin. “Maybe it was our experience in Sweden but we could see that our bodies were taking a toll and we finally came to the realization that self-care is necessary and we need to start now”, she shared. After years of building her career in the fashion world she decided it was time to take a sabbatical. Time to make the time for the things that really mattered to her; friends, family, and living simply happily.
That began the journey of trying to recreate that feeling, that atmosphere right back at home. This, of course, lead to the creation of the Hygge Box . They wanted to share the art of hygge with people everywhere. Give busy people something to look forward to every month with a little box full of things to induce a hygglig (nice) mood.
“Hygge is about preserving happiness everyday. It is slowing down, being humble, expressing gratitude, feeling safe and connecting with loved ones. Hygge Box is for anyone who wants to bring hygge into their home and life.”
This Deluxe Hygge Box is full of cozy. These “DREAM BIG” slipper socks are the softest socks your toes can handle. The outside of them is like a warm knit blanket while the inside is like a fine cashmere sweater.And the Lavender Sachet is perfect to put in a drawer or even under your bed to spread the sweet smell of calm around your room.
Then there’s this Pebble Mug from London Pottery that looks like it was carved straight from a river rock.
The Grey Lavender Candle from Illume smells like a blanket washed in lavender straight out of the dryer. Its warm and inviting but not overpowering.
Snacks. Snacks are such a necessity to comfort. You get a handful of Walker’s chocolates, Sea Salt and Butter Biscuits from St. Michel, and this Hot Cocoa Spoon (sooo good) from Melville Candy. And we have to have a warm beverage (obviously) and this reusable Tea Brewer from April Love is a nifty little travel brewer. You can even empty out the loose leaf that’s in there and replace it with another tea of your choice to use again.
