At Spoonful of Comfort, we discovered a name for this bliss. It’s called “hygge” (pronounced “hoo-gah”), the Danish word describing perfect moments of cozy contentment. Hygge is what you feel when you’re wrapped in a blanket watching the snow fall outside. It’s the experience of calm that comes during the simple pleasure of reading a book while sipping a cozy mug of tea. Hygge is that sense of contentment found in candlelight and quiet moments with the people you love.
In a word, hygge is what we think the holidays are all about. And it’s the theme of our holiday gift lineup for 2020. But before we get to that, get a feel for hygge yourself with this list of cozy gifts that can help everyone you know experience a hygge holiday season.
Warm & Cozy Gift Ideas
The holiday season is packed full of parties, presents, shopping, wrapping, cleaning, cooking, and decorating. They’re fun, for sure. But hygge happens in the quiet moments in between. These comfort gifts will help all the important people in your life enjoy a moment of peace and rest amidst the fun and chaos.
Comfort Gifts for Her
Mom, grandma, wife, or sister—you know the truth … these women in your life work nonstop to ensure everyone has the best holiday possible. Show your appreciation and help ease the pressure with a thoughtful gift that will keep them warm and relaxed.
- Take Care of Dinner - Order a gourmet meal for the family from Spoonful of Comfort. Delicious soup, rolls, cookies, and a night off—a gift any girl will love.
- Jammies - When getting cozy and comfortable, they can no longer be referred to as pajamas. They’re jammies. And you can never have too many.
- Leggings - Speaking of things you can never have too many of—get your girl some leggings! This comfy and cozy clothing item has become a staple in every woman’s wardrobe for good reason.
- Spa Essentials - After a long day of baking, shopping, or—let’s face it—running the world, there’s nothing like a long, hot bath. Make a comfort gift for her with bath bombs, beauty products, or a bathtub caddy tray to hold anything she wants to enjoy while she bathes.
- Blanket - A soft and cozy throw blanket is perfect for movie night, cuddling, and long winter naps. It’s also great for someone who lives far away and won’t be able to hug you in person this year.
- Socks or Slippers - Keep her cozy all the way down to her toes with soft slippers or fuzzy socks. Throw in a foot rub and she’ll be feeling jolly and joyful in no time.
- Soothing Tea & Personalized Mug - Unwind together at the end of the day with a cup of tea by the fire. Give her the gift of a soothing tea trio and a personalized mug to go with it.
- Sleep Mask - A soft and silky sleep mask is perfect for rejuvenating rest after a stressful or busy day.
- Meditation Pillow - A hygge holiday season is the perfect time to take up a new, calming hobby like meditation or yoga. Give your loved one a meditation pillow for extra comfort during their zen time.
Comfort Gifts for Him
Climbing ladders, hanging lights, putting up the tree, and shoveling the driveway isn’t easy for anyone. And if a guy tackles holiday chores in addition to mediating between his wife and mother, impressing his in-laws, and helping his kids build the best snowman in the neighborhood, he deserves a little hygge for himself. These comfort gift ideas are sure to help him get into the hygge holiday spirit.
- Massage - How about a heated shiatsu back massager that fits onto his favorite chair. It’s great for soothing those sore muscles any time of day.
- Bluetooth Beanie - Help him stay warm outside, especially while shoveling snow off the sidewalk for all your holiday visitors. Make the job more fun with a Bluetooth beanie that allows him to listen to his favorite tunes while he works.
- Insulated Mug - An insulated travel mug is a great way for him to keep his coffee hot on the way to work or his cocoa warm when he’s out in the cold. Be sure to find one that fits nicely in the cupholder of his car.
- Socks or Slippers - Believe it or not, men do occasionally get cold. Snuggle up together in your fuzzy socks or get him a pair of slippers for those chilly mornings.
- Relaxing Pillow Spray - Help him relax as soon as his head hits the pillow with a relaxing lavender deep sleep pillow spray.
Comfort Gifts for the Kids
There’s nothing like time off from school for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but even the kids need a little help relaxing sometimes. Tackle the traditions of holiday light displays, building gingerbread houses, cleaning their rooms (gee thanks, Mom), and writing letters Santa. And then create some well-deserved downtime for everyone. You can keep the holiday magic alive with these cozy gift ideas.
- Snow Gear - The sparkling sun on freshly fallen snow is truly a winter wonderland when you’re out of school for winter break. Help them bring their imaginations to life with tools they can use in the snow and cozy clothes to keep them warm. Hats, scarves, gloves, boots, and snow pants are more fun than you might think.
- S’mores - Why wait for summer when you can make s’mores at home over the stove or in the fireplace? A s’mores kit makes a great gift for kids and can be used as a family anytime during the winter.
- Slippers - Let your kids run around in their “bear” feet with a pair of fuzzy animal paw slippers that will keep them warm.
- Hooded Blanket - Speaking of fuzzy animals, your kids will love these hooded animal blankets. They can wear them while reading, watching movies, and even playing games as a family.
- Lounging Pillows - Let your kids lounge in the living room with a set of pillows and a cover that connects them to create the perfect seat. With the ability to bend into a variety of shapes, these cozy gifts can even be used as a bed if you’ll be spending the holidays at Grandma’s house.
- Weighted Blanket - Help your little ones get a good night’s sleep with a calming and super soft weighted blanket.
