Gift-giving is one of the most fun aspects of the holiday season. While being the receiver of a special gift is heartwarming, being the giver of a meaningful hygge-style gift can be even more gratifying.

Great gifts are really more about the thoughtful intention behind them than the actual gift. A holiday hygge gift is well thought out and might include homemade treats or something cozy for the home.
Embracing the spirit of gift-giving should start with thinking about the person you are giving to. Find out about their interests and hobbies.
What do they love and what makes them happy.
Listen for any clues when you’re with them. Ask mutual friends or family, if you’re still stuck.
Once you’re ready to shop, visit locally-owned stores and artisanal shops for special and unique gifts.
Wrapping your special hygge gift is as important as the gift itself. The wrapping is the presentation of your gift, so it should be beautiful and festive. Some ideas for hygge gift wrapping might be; a natural-looking and cute cardboard box, wrapping paper with snow, birds, or a nature scene.
You could also get really creative and use a knit stocking or something seasonal to put your gift in.
There are many Ideas for gifts that encompass the hygge concept. Winter hygge is all about the feeling of coziness and warmth. So, it’s no surprise that gifts for the home are at the top of the list.
1. Soft Textures
Thick, plush blankets, throws, and pillows make great gifts.
Warm lighting is key in a hygge home, so things like candles and tea light lanterns also make the perfect present.
3. Homemade Goodies
Seasonal food and drinks are the epitome of the hygge lifestyle. Put together a hot cocoa kit for your chocolate-loving friend using a thoughtful mug, a small decorative spoon, and some cocoa mix. Gather together the ingredients for your favorite cookie recipe, wrap them in a basket, and include the handwritten recipe and note.
The ideas are endless when it comes to spreading the holiday cheer through hygge gift giving.
After all, it’s far more joyful to give than receive.
