Hygee (pronounced hue-guh): a Scandinavian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment. Yes. Please.
Is anyone else all about the cozy right now? Or always? Maybe I’m Danish at heart. Happiest when found wrapped in a blanket, in comfy clothes, drinking extremely hot coffee or tea with friends or family. So, there’s nothing more fitting than me sharing a few cozy-inspired gifts and stocking ideas for the Mamas this year. Who knew that gifting socks & bath products could look so gorgeous 😉
The Christmas countdown is on, and if you’re like me you’ve got a few last minute gifts to wrap up. I don’t love crowds, but I do love shopping when everything is so festive! (Perhaps not ever having worked in retail during the holidays has contributed to this. 😉 )
I’ve teamed up with Scallywags, my favourite local children’s shop, to give one winner a $50 credit to shop for those last minute stocking stuffers! Scallywags stocks quality products and beautiful small shop goods, this is truly the store to browse for the absolute best products! Entering is easy, details are at the bottom of this post!
To be fair, most children’s books rhyme– and really, they all should, shouldn’t they? (Or is it just me who gets a bit annoyed when a kids’ book doesn’t rhyme… insert that little eye roll emoji right here…) I love the flow and rhythm created by rhyming stories, and so does Vienna. She spends a lot of time “reading” books lately and I love listening to her make up little rhymes (some aren’t words at all, of course) and she mimics the rhythm and rhymes of her favourite stories. It’s so sweet.Here are five of our favourite books that rhyme! I’ll have to do subsequent versions of this list because it was nearly impossible to only pick five.
With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend I’m excited to share a few of my favourite products that make for a thoughtful gift for all of the Mamas out there! Of course Mother’s Day is not about the gifts we receive, but it is always nice to get a little something special. Plus, I know my three year old daughter just loves to pick out and give gifts. She gets so excited and that makes me so happy! Gifts don’t have to be extravagant, as cliche as it sounds, it really is the thought that counts.
