Autumn is the perfect time to add a touch of hygge to your home. Pronounced hoo-ga, hygge is a Danish concept that roughly translates to a feeling of cosiness and contentment through appreciating and enjoying life’s simple pleasures. Think roaring fires, mugs of hot cocoa, dinners by candlelight, long, hot bubble baths… ahh, bliss!
With this in mind, I’ve rounded up five quintessential hygge items, but with a kawaii twist, to help you make the most out of the colder months.
Curl up with a good book and pour yourself a cuppa in this pastel pink teacup and saucer set from ARTBOX featuring this year’s Sanrio Character Ranking winner Cinnamoroll. ARTBOX ships internationally.
Nothing screams hygge more than candles, and this Unicorn Farts soy wax candle by Soul & Soap looks good enough to eat!
Keep your tootsies warm this winter with super kawaii Pusheenicorn slippers from GUND (USA).
No cosy night in is complete without a cosy blanket, and this mermaid tail blanket from Hot Topic is as cute and cosy as they come.
