Get ready to get cozy. This post is a guide to the best hygge gifts for her. It’s something I have wanted to post for a long time because I love living a cozy, bookish life, and I have so many great very personal recommendations to suggest for you or the lady in your life.
Hygge (pronounced “HOO-gah”) is “a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment.” Since Danes are often considered to be the happiest people in the world, they must be on to something!
Below is my guide to the best hygge gifts for her, which will evoke all the hygge feelings.
The Best Hygge Gifts for Her
The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living
Since this is primarily a book blog, the first hygge gift I recommend is the adorable New York Times bestselling book The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living. It’s small and quickly skimmable, and it contains everything you need to know about hygge in a pretty format with illustrations. It also makes a great coffee table or bookshelf book! I personally love my copy.

Let’s keep those toes warm! When my feet are cold, I simply cannot relax. Since I love books (and your hygge gal likely does too), I recommend beloved cozy retailer Barefoot Dreams at Nordstrom, but I also love these specific book-themed socks on Amazon.
Nothing says cozy like a soft, warm blanket. I love warm and cozy sherpa-lined throw blankets from Pottery Barn and ChappyWrap (one of my favorite things of 2020 and one of my favorite things of all time), and I stock up on them regularly. While they can be pricey, they are high quality and traditional, and sometimes you can get a really good sale!
The warm flicker and luscious scents of a candle are so hygge. My personal favorites are the popular Capri Blue candles (which are so luxurious and universally beloved), Rewined candles (which smell like wine and are housed in recycled wine bottles), and Homesick candles (designed to evoke feelings of home and comfort). You can also find the most gorgeous and decadent candles curated at Anthropologie.
My comfy weekend “uniform” is consistently leggings and a pullover. Spanx leggings feel and look the best, with so much compression, for home or going out — they are totally worth the price, and I have several pairs. In fact, they are one of my favorite things of all time. Hey, when you find something you like…
Every hygge lady loves a good mug! I personally love monogrammed mugs and my favorite mugs are by Rae Dunn (so substantial and unique feeling) and Pottery Barn. Anthropologie also consistently curates the prettiest mugs! I also recommend a bookish mug for you bookworms out there.

Possibly the most comforting feeling on earth is that of a new pair of pajamas. After testing out so many brands over the years, my favorite cost-effective options are the stretchy cotton options from J. Crew, which are high quality and maintain a traditional look mixed with comfort. Nordstrom’s Moonlight Dreams line is also very similar and excellent in quality. Seriously, you have to try them.
Bath Caddy & Products
Warm water is so relaxing, and so a bath caddy (for reading!) and bath products are perfect for this guide to the best hygge gifts for her. I included some of my personal favorite clean bath products in a range of prices from Sephora and Ulta below.
