Hygge for mums and babies
If you follow the news you might just have heard about the latest fashion and interiors trend that is taking the nation by storm – hygge. Pronounced ‘hoo-ga’ this is a Danish word that embodies the concept of winter cosiness and that feeling of contentment that you get when you snuggle up with loved ones in front of a warm fire. As the weather gets colder and the nights draw in it can be a great idea to bring a touch of hygge into your little one’s world and into yours too. So if you want to create a cosy atmosphere in your home this winter then here are some great hygge based ideas from our gorgeous product range. Snuggle Up When there’s a chill in the air then lots of warm, soft blankets are a hygge essential – for mums and babies! Our sumptuous Harlequin Dusk Quilt is the perfect combination of style and snuggliness and comes in a chic dusky grey colour scheme. This blanket looks great in your little one’s cot and it can also be used as a play blanket as well to bring some hygge with you wherever you go. Get Inspired By Scandi-Chic The simplicity of Scandinavian style is always popular and the clean calm lines of the Alma Mini Crib along with its cool urban design means it’s the perfect centrepiece of a hygge nursery. It comes in white or grey and its compact shape means it’s ideal for city living and making the most of your space. Keep Little Toes Toasty Hygge doesn’t have to stop when you leave the house. It’s important to keep cosy when you venture outside so bobble hats and comfy woollen jumpers are a must. Maternity clothes gurus Nine In The Mirror have some gorgeously soft knitwear that’s ideal for keeping you and your bump warm – and we can offer you 20% off when you enter custard20 at checkout. You’ll also want to keep little hands hot and tiny toes toasty so our snuggly sheepskin booties do the job perfectly with their oh so soft sheepskin lining. Chill Out In A Warm Bath Hygge is all about a relaxed vibe and where better to chill out than in a luxuriously hot bath surrounded by scented candles and soft light. Being a parent can leave you feeling rather frazzled and it’s important to look after yourself occasionally, so why not treat yourself to a heavenly shampoo from The Original Sprout and you can get 30% off by entering c&c1 at checkout. Their range is suitable for vegans and vegetarians and so not only will it keep you cosy but it’s caring too. Things Are Hotting Up In The Kitchen The kitchen is the heart of the hygge lifestyle and it’s important to make it feel as welcoming as possible. Why not string up one of our pretty garlands to give it a festive feel. It’s also the place to cook great dishes that both you and your little one will love – especially when they start weaning. We love this sweet potato, carrot and ginger recipe which is just perfect for a cold winter’s day! We have really embraced hygge at Custard & Crumble and we love the way that it brings warmth and happiness to even the coldest of days. We’d love to hear if you have brought hygge into your life and how you’ve done it so get in touch on our Twitter or Facebook pages.
