Hygge EmbellishBox

Fingerless gloves lying on the Hygge EmbellishBox

Now that the first EmbellishBox has gone out and the second one is getting nearer to shipping, I thought it would be great to show you what was in it! If you didn’t get one, then you missed out.

The theme was Hygge. Hygge is a Danish word and it means cosiness, comfort, creating that warm and content feeling you get when you come in from a windy walk and sit wrapped in a blanket drinking hot chocolate in front of a log burning stove. It’s about woolly jumpers and candles, reading and relaxing, mulled wine and good company, danish pastries and home cooked casseroles, blankets and sheepskin, pinecones and leaves, box sets viewed from the comfort of your sofa, slow music, simplicity, being in the moment and spending time with the people you care about. Hygge is supposedly the reason that Denmark is the happiest country in the world.

Here’s some photographs of the contents.
