While every word may have a definition, there are some best understood by experiencing them. Hygge is one of those special words. Defined by Oxford Languages, hygge is “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).” That will tell you something: it’s a state of happiness, of feeling invited and warm. But as we so often face with these nebulous words, how do we get there?

If you’ve ever traveled to Scandinavia, chances are you’ve felt the draw of hygge at least once. As soon as the sun sets, take note of how overhead lighting takes a backseat to the flicker of candles. Chunky sweaters are layered in lieu of space heaters or stepping indoors. If there’s music playing, it’s soft—a soundtrack hugging the conversations happening around you. Rosy cheeks, warm drinks, throw blankets; it’s all part of the hygge equation.

The most important element of creating your own hygge space is comfort: in clothing, in surroundings, and in whatever you’re sipping or snacking on. And don’t forget to slip into a pair of hyggebukser, or cozy pants that are reserved for settling into the couch and grabbing a book.

This in mind, I pulled together a shopping list of sorts—everything you’ll need to get you that much closer to hygge vibes wherever you find yourself.
