The Gugu Guru team is obsessed with a new concept this winter, “hygge” – have you heard of it? Hygge, pronounced HOO-gah, is the Danish word for cozy, and as the New York Times said in their recent piece on Hygge, “It is also a national manifesto, nay, an obsession expressed in the constant pursuit of homespun pleasures involving candlelight, fires, fuzzy knitted socks, porridge, coffee, cake and other people.” This cozy phenomenon is becoming more popular for families in America, and what’s a more hygge concept than a warm and cozy baby? We rounded up our favorite hygge baby products to help you get hygge with it! As the New York Times stated, “How to get hygge? Go home and stay there, preferably in your hyggekrog — a.k.a. “cozy nook” — wrapped in a blanket, drinking a cup of coffee…” We think all parents can roll with that idea!
