Guess what… it’s competition time again!
I’m so overwhelmed with all the attention my little old blog has been attracting this year, and I think it’s about time I gave something back to say thank you for all your kind words, comments and enthusiasm for hygge in 2016. That’s why I’m running a competition to win a mini hamper of hygge goodies to help you get cosy this winter!
So, what’s in the hamper? (scroll straight to the bottom if you want it to be a surprise):
I wrote about Hoogly Tea earlier this year, and Tina has very kindly offered me some tea (with a great new look) to include in this prize! We’ve gone for some lovely spicy blends to warm you up after a winter walk – if you’re the lucky winner, you’ll be enjoying the Chocolate Brownie and Spiced Orange blends.
The Art of Hygge book
If you’re looking for an introduction to hygge, you can’t go wrong with one of the many books on the topic out this season. I reviewed The Art of Hygge back in September, and I picked up an extra copy to include in this prize to give you some cosy reading material!
The right lighting is fundamental for creating a hyggeligt atmosphere, so I’ve included a couple of my favourite Yankee Candles to give you that all-important glow. I’ve chosen the Home Sweet Home and Cosy By The Fire scents to get you in the mood for hygge.
You don’t want your lovely new candles ruining your surfaces, so I’m also giving away a glass votive holder with a very on-trend copper handle. This is the perfect size for your Yankee Candle votives, so you can hygge to your heart’s content.
Every single hygge article on the big news websites has been illustrated with a photo of warm socks in front of a fire, so I had to pop a pair in my hamper! These festive red and green socks will see you all the way through winter – super snug.
My fingers have been so cold the last few mornings, so I’m giving you the gift of warm hands with these unisex gloves! The light grey with a cheery multicoloured fleck will brighten even the gloomiest winter days.
Here’s a little treat to share with your hygge companions! Dairy Milk is an absolute classic, so for the nostalgia factor, snap off a few squares and savour in front of a film. Or munch through the whole bar – I won’t tell anyone…
Some nights call for something creamy and reassuring, so this adorable mini bottle of Baileys is the perfect antidote to a difficult day. Enjoy in front of the fire, in the bath or mix it into some hot chocolate for a real sweet treat.
Icelandic Christmas decoration
This is my favourite part! I’m including a wooden Christmas decoration all the way from beautiful Iceland. This little guy is Askasleikir, one of the Icelandic Yule Lads, who bring tricks and treats to children in Iceland through the festive season. Askasleikir hides under people’s beds and steals their bowls, so keep an eye on your crockery if you win!
Two handmade Nordic decorations
My mum has recently got into crafting, and she’s made these two lovely little Nordic hearts. Hang them on your tree, from door handles, from hooks, from the mantlepiece or anywhere else you like to add a touch of Scandi chic to your own winter wonderland.
How to enter
To be in with a chance of winning, just enter via this Rafflecopter widget. This competition is open to UK residents and closes at 11.59pm on 30th November, after which I’ll randomly select a winner. Best of luck!
