Celebrate Downtown Evanston's Hygge Fest this February with an individual Hygge box from Bookends & Beginnings! Bookish socks, delicious chocolates, and a soothing candle will get you into the hygge spirit as you cuddle up on the sofa to learn more from Hygge Simplified.
Pronounced "hue-gah," this philosophy of mindfulness and contentment is central to Danish culture. The word likely derives from a sixteenth-century Norwegian term, hugga, meaning “to comfort” or “to console,” which is related to the English word “hug.” Hygge can help us through this cold winter indoors by fostering feelings of coziness and wellness. Another tennant of the lifestyle is togetherness, so consider sending a Hygge box to a loved one this Valentine's Day and passing along the good cheer.
