THE COZY GIFT GUIDE

Looking for the perfect cozy present for those who seek a slow and hyggelig life? Do not worry, I have the perfect selection of items for you!

There is in my mind nothing better than staying in, wrapping yourself up in comfy blanket with a good read and a hot drink knowing that while it’s freezing out there, you are cozy inside. If you want to give that same feeling to someone this Christmas, read on to discover items for cozy moments:

^ Espresso cups: This hand made pottery by Justine Jenner Pottery comes in a beautiful array of 6 colours which will add colour to any kitchen. Surely a unique gift, Justine’s beautiful espresso cups are designed for everyday use and fits perfectly with Scandi-inspired interiors. They pair beautifully with the tiny jug. You can get 20% discount on any purchase from NN Gifts & Interior by using the code THATSCANDIFEELING.

^ Copenhagen: deluxe edition: As a homebody I love staying in playing board games! My recent purchase was this Copenhagen game which I am really enjoying. I always look for games which can be easily played with two people as well as a group (because most of the time me and my boyfriend play together) and this game is great for both. In the game, players must design new facades for the famous colourful gabled houses along the water in Nyhavn so that they fit seamlessly into this harbour setting. If whoever you are buying a gift for loves Copenhagen and hygge – this game is for them!

^ One-of-a-kind cushion: Hygge:liv has a great collection designed and developed in a sustainable and socially responsible way, with each cushion made from unused fabric and are handmade locally. The result, is a range of incredibly special, luxe one-of-a-kind designs great as gifts. If you are not sure about which design to go for, they also have eGift Cards.

^ In The Moment magazine subscription: Give the gift of a magazine subscription, and the receiver will get something each month thought out the year to enjoy. In The Moment is a beautiful, practical lifestyle magazine for the modern-thinking creative woman. Enjoy practical creative projects, positive features and stories to inspire, adventures near and far for a healthy body and mind, and ideas embracing every aspect of women’s lives: friends, family, self, work, rest and play. One of my favourite lifestyle magazines.

^ Super chunky knit blanket: A cozy blanket is essential for any hygge home, and I love the look of this cruelty-free blanket – a great alternative to the Merino wool products. Hand-crafted with exceptionally soft unspun acrylic yarn, it will be a perfect addition as home decor, whether it’s for a living room, bedroom, nursery or patio.

^ ‘Seeking Slow: Reclaim Moments of Calm in Your Day’ book: A book is a great gift for anyone who wish to slow down during the festive season. Seeking Slow by Melanie Barnes provides simple ways for you to slow down and reconnect with yourself, your family, and your surroundings – while finding joy in doing so. It is also a very pretty coffee table book (it is currently on mine!)

^ Copenhagen embroidered ornaments: Is the person you are giving a present a lover of Christmas and Copenhagen? These adorable embroidered ornaments from Ferm Living will make a very thoughtful gift they can cherish each Christmas. My favourite is the kringle: known for its knotted shape, filled with remonce and sprinkled with coarse sugar, this pastry has a dear place in every cake connoisseur’s heart.

^ Home slippers: I love the look of these wool home slippers from Ilse Jacobsen. Soft and comfortable, perfect for a ‘hygge’ day at home and a great gift for anyone.

^ ‘Let’s stay in’ print: This is the printable version of an original minimalist art piece saying ‘let’s stay in’ featuring distinctive brush lettered hand-lettering, complemented by a watercolor splatter, which means you can print it out yourself after purchasing to save on delivery cost. Your purchase includes all 3 colour variations: dark gray, dusty blush, and sage green. Perfect for anyone who enjoys the simples pleasures in life, or the coziness that comes with spending a night in.

^ ‘Ro’ candle: Peace, calm and tranquility from the kingdoms of Norway, Sweden and Denmark by Skandinavisk. This delicately scented candle subtly infuses the room with gentle notes of fresh cut grass, ripening fruit orchards and hidden blankets in the dunes. (The word ‘ro’ means tranquility but there are also other words and scents available.)

^ ‘Life in Pictures’ photo album: A coffee table book when closed – A photo album when opened. Print your memories and put them on display on your coffee table using this minimal and decorative album. Each album contains 30 pages.

^ iPhone case: Get a personalised case for the phone or one of the many design available created by talented illustrators. This one I have is called ‘solnedgang‘ (sunset) and is designed by Jessie Smith. You can get a discount on any order of cases from the Caseapp site by using the code SCANDI20!

^ Felt coaster: I love this Scandi style felt coaster, a lovely addition to any home don’t you think? Each coaster is handmade from wool in a fair trade environment. Perfect place to put your favourite mug.
