Wellness trends come and go, but hygge is very much here to stay. No clue what I'm talking about?
It might sound like a fancy, intimidating word (it's pronounced: hoo-gah), but hygge's premise is super simple. For ultimate bliss, according to the Danes who coined the term, do whatever it takes to feel cozy and recharged in both body and mind.
Just like self-care, hygge can take on different forms for different folks. Whether you get that warm-cozy feeling from treating your face to a new exfoliant, journaling for self growth, skipping your plans to slip into those new silk jammies you bought, or reading a romance novel, there’s no wrong way to do it.
Can't wait to get cozy? Take a peak at these top hygge gifts:
Which means there's no wrong way to gift it for the holidays, either. Those long, cold winter nights won't seem so bad when you're snuggled under the weight of a delightful down duvet.
So, check out the 25 best hygge gift ideas that basically guarantee a happy hibernation going All. Winter. Long.
1. Marled Hoodie Sleep Lounger

2. Heatable Plushie
Netflix and chill? More like Hulu and snuggle. Curl up with your new partner in potato-couching crime—this adorbs plush companion—and let the internal microwavable pouch warm you and fill the air with a soothing lavender scent. Also available in a cute crab and tasty taco, because: options.
3. Dessert Bath Bombs
These pastry-inspired bath bombs will make a relaxing soak—while reading a book or watching your favorite TV show, natch—even sweeter (pun totally intended). If the fruity and floral scents aren't enough to convince you, then maybe the fact that they're dipped in ultra-moisturizing shea butter will. Donut try to do hygge without 'em.
4. Long Sleeve Button-Down Pajama Lounger Set
File this under "necessary." Not just crazy comfortable but crazy cute, these bamboo jammies put all of your old college shirts, baggy sweats, and beat-up boxer shorts to shame. They're fitted enough so you don't get lost underneath all that fabric (ahem, your ex-boyfriend's XL frat tee), while still slightly stretchy so you're free of any annoying bunching.
5. Buttah Skin Vibe Brush
Pro tip: Unwind on a Friday night by giving your skin the love it (desperately) needs. How? By cleansing your face with this super luxurious and vibrating Buttah Skin face brush.

6. Ugg Fluff Yeah Slide Slipper

8. Bamboo Bathtub Caddy

9. Bodum Brazil French Press Coffee and Tea Maker
Warming up starts with a hot drink. But venturing outside in those icy temps to stand in line at Starbucks? No. Thank. You. Rather than spend all that money on store-bought brew, put it to good use by buying this simple and sleek java machine.
