What Is Hygge and How Do I Get It?

The word ‘hygge’ has been popping up all over the news and social media for a quite awhile now – but what is it and how do I get it?

Prounounced, hoo-ga, it’s a Danish concept of intentional, laid-back bonding and spending quality time with the people you love in the most comfortable space possible. Apparently, hygge is why the Danes are the happiest people on earth!

Because we know that you want them to be as comfy, cozy and as happy as possible at all times, we’ve put together some easy ways for you to get hygge in your little one’s room.


Lighting is such an important aspect to consider in any space as it has the power to affect and influence your mood. It’s an especially vital thing to consider in your little one’s room as their senses are a lot more heightened than ours are.

Candles are also said to create an amazing hygge environment – but with little ones in the house you might want to opt for battery-operated candles instead.

Build an Indoor Fort
