The Hygge Family Box is a curated selection of our favourite local gifts aimed to bring families together delivered right to you! And this season we are excited to announce that our box is based on a Midsummers Picnic theme!
June 21 is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. It’s actually a proper holiday in Scandinavia, where, in some places, the sun doesn’t even set. It’s called Midsummer, and it’s celebrated with bonfires, flower crowns, and picnics with cocktails, beautiful open faced sandwiches and desserts, aquavit (a Scandinavian hard liquor), rye, and caraway to last you until sundown! Sounds dreamy and very hyggelig! The perfect inspiration behind our summer box!
Our mission is to bring families together and create present-ness by being in the moment with the people you care about. That is what Hygge (Hue-gah) is all about! It is a Danish word that means coziness, warmth and togetherness. Every item in the Hygge Family Box has been carefully selected by Lisa, Stina and Bre. They are all beautiful gifts that we use in our homes, and with our own families, to create a warm and inviting environment filled with special meaningful moments.
Just a hint to some of the items in this box!
After seeing the incredible demand for the Hygge Family Box and receiving feedback we decided to create two versions. One for families with young kids (ages 2 to 12) and one for people with no kids (or older kids). Most of the items in both boxes will be exactly the same. The big difference between the two is that we substituted one item that is specifically for kids and changed up the 30-day challenge to be more reflective of activities adults would like to do.
Family Box/With Kids:
In this box you’ll receive your choice of the Yoga Pretzel Deck or Global Kids Activity Deck. A few words about each:
Yoga Pretzels Deck: 50 Fun Yoga Activities for Kids & GrownupsCalm the mind and body, improve patience and boost confidence with yoga! These 50 cards include forward bends, back bends, partner poses and balance poses.
“Through these fun yoga activities, children can improve flexibility, grace and agility while at the same time improving inner strength, confidence and self esteem” —Deepak Chopra, M.D.

This Hygge box will bring warmth and coziness into your home and give you ideas for special things you can do for yourself and together with other people you love.
30 Day Hygge Challenge:
There is also a very special 30 Day Hygge Challenge to take part in that is included in both boxes. We’ll guide you through the challenge! It is fun and easy and someone will WIN a FREE Fall Box for taking part! We’ll use the items in the box in new and creative ways. We are excited for you to join us as we do the Hygge Family Challenge together! We know you are going to love it!

What is Hygge by Bre and Stina:
There is no English word that directly translates from the Danish word Hygge (Hue-gah). It is often related to coziness during the colder months however to us Hygge means creating warmth, love, and togetherness by spending time with the ones you love all year round.
Growing up, Hygge was always a part of our lives but we didn’t come to realize how special and unique the practice of Hygge was until we were busy adults with our own families. In today’s world things are moving fast and taking the time to be present and spend time together as a family takes conscious effort and practice. We appreciate that our families prioritized Hygge and we have done the same for our children. We wanted to make it as easy as possible for other families to do the same. We love what is including in the Spring Family Hygge Box and know that it will bring warmth and comfort to your home and create togetherness and special memories for you and your loved ones.
