19 things that will bring more hygge into your Latter-day Saint home this winter


With winter upon us, it’s time to get cozy and spend some quality time with the people you love. And while the holidays provide opportunities for just that, we’re talking about having a special mindset of coziness—or what the Danish call hygge (“hoo-guh”).

Hygge has been such a phenomenon in recent years that it was added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary in 2021. But what does hygge entail? According to, it’s “often about informal time together with family or close friends. Typically, the setting is at home or another quiet location. … There is no agenda. You celebrate the small joys of life, or maybe discuss deeper topics. It is an opportunity to unwind and take things slow.”

While there are lots of nuances to hygge and how people implement it in their lives, think a good book, a slice of cake, and a warm blanket and you’re off to a pretty good start. Looking for specific suggestions? Here are 19 items with some hygge vibes that are perfect to help you enjoy the season.
