30 Hygge-Inspired Ideas


Hygge is the Danish idea about coziness and enjoying the simple, little things in life. I only found out about the concept a few months ago, but without realizing, I live in a very hygge way! I love to be at home, with candles lit and a fire. I love reading, being cosy and anything that makes me feel relaxed! I just didn’t have a name for it before, so calling it hygge feels nice.

I think taking time to appreciate the simple things is really important, so I have listed 30 of my favourite things to do that are ‘Hygge’-inspired!

  1. Take a bubble bath, use a bath bomb too
  2. Cover your room in fairy lights
  3. Have a games night with your friends or other half
  4. Doodle in a notebook
  5. Light a room with your favourite candles
  6. Burn an insense stick for a homely, warm scent.
  7. Declutter your digital life
  8. Build a fort with duvets and blankets
  9. Spend a day without going on your phone
  10. Take an hour to read a book
  11. Add new texture like scatter cushions
  12. Try a warming drink
  13. Buy a new cosy throw
  14. Bake a cake
  15. Light fire/log burner
  16. Have friend round and cook a meal for them
  17. Try knitting or sewing
  18. Have an at-home spa night for yourself
  19. Write someone an actual letter
  20. Go for a wintery walk with a scarf and bobble hat
  21. Make your own hot chocolate from scratch
  22. Have a lazy, late brunch
  23. Listen to your old favourite songs
  24. Wear some comfy new pyjymas
  25. Try an adult colouring book
  26. Bake a loaf of bread and eat with jam
  27. Invite your family to spend the evening with you

    Hygge is such a lovely concept and, like you, I didn’t realise that I was living my life like this anyway before finding out about it! All of these are lovely ideas ☺️ A pamper spa night at home is sounds so lovely, especially as it’s in the comfort of your own home and you don’t even have to leave the house for it! 🙊 xxx
