The concept of hygge made its debut in the US on social media several years ago, but its native Denmark has been practicing hygge for centuries. This feeling of coziness and contentment is now sweeping the nation as people are looking for ways to combat the winter blues.
While you can’t change the weather, there are plenty of things you can do to make your home a haven of hygge. One way to do this is by investing in some cozy accessories that will make you want to stay indoors all winter long. Here are some hygge-inspired accessories to help you make the most of winter!
A Sheepskin Rug
Nothing can beat the feeling of sinking your feet into a soft, fluffy sheepskin rug. Not only is it cozy, but it also adds a touch of luxury to your home. If you don’t want to splurge on a real sheepskin, there are plenty of high-quality faux options available.
A Cozy Throw Blanket
There’s nothing better than snuggling up in a cozy throw blanket when the weather outside is frightful. Choose a style and color that complements your home décor, and you’ll be sure to want to use it all winter long.

When the temperatures start to drop, it’s important to have a good pair of slippers to keep your feet warm. If you don’t already have a pair, now is the time to invest in some! Choose a style that you’ll love wearing around the house all winter! I also highly recommend them if you’re looking for a gift for someone who loves to be cozy at home.
Candles are like the quintessential hygge accessory. They add warmth and ambiance to any space, and they make it feel more inviting. Choose candles with scents that make you feel happy and relaxed, and be sure to have plenty on hand to light all winter long.
Fuzzy socks are another must-have for keeping your feet warm all winter. They’re also great for lounging around the house or wearing to bed. Choose a few pairs in different colors and patterns, so you always have a cozy pair to slip into.

A Mug of Hot Chocolate
This is technically not an accessory, but it definitely belongs on this list! Make your hot chocolate even better by topping it with whipped cream, cinnamon, and marshmallows, or get creative and add a shot of espresso.
Can you already imagine yourself curling up with a mug of hot chocolate on a cold winter day?
