Aroma of Baking
There’s nothing quite like the smell of bread, cookies, or biscuits baking and filling the house with a delicious aroma. A wafting hint of spiced cookies carries with it the promise of a snack, which is very hygge. So, dig through your cookbook collection and mark the recipes you’ll use when you’re infusing your kitchen with tantalizing smells. Also, keeping a cookie jar full of treats on the counter isn’t a bad idea either.

Coffee, Tea, Cocoa
A cup of something hot goes a long way when it comes to relaxing and feeling at home. A very hygge gathering would probably include a pot of rich coffee with some cream, an herbal tea, or a mug of sweet cocoa. Keep a selection of hot drink options on hand, but don’t stress over the presentation. Hygge is meant to be stress-free and enjoying what you have in the moment.

Nostalgia on Display
Decorate your space with possessions that mean something to you, that tell a story or revive happy memories. A hygge-centric design inside your living room might include framed drawings or cards, a dried bouquet of flowers, knick-knacks from travels abroad, or found objects on display. Show off the things that matter to you, and you’ll always have that feeling of contentedness at home.
