As the Northern Hemisphere turns toward Autumn, I start thinking about cozying up my indoor space and comforting myself with soft textures, comfort foods, warm inviting scents and everything HYGGE!
What is Hygge? The definition from Oxford Languages is: “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).” - BUT! I also really like this definition from Enchanted Living: “The art of hygge is really about living sensually through intention. It’s about lifting the spirit and enjoying life through slowing down, by being present in the now, and by experiencing each moment to the fullest. This is where ritual can come into play, to encourage and enhance this type of mindful lifestyle. There are many ways we can weave simple rituals into our daily living.”
Swap Requirements: This swap will be for one Medium OR 2-3 Small items

(Mug Rugs, Ninnis, Teesha Moore patches)? Be creative, and please include a helpful list of ideas for your partner to pull from.
(OPTIONAL) If you’d like to potentially receive something that could take others into account, please tell us a bit about your family. Do you have a significant other? Children? Pets?
Is there anything you absolutely do NOT want to receive? (e.g. no food or drink items, no wool, no scarves, etc.?)
Favorite Colors, color combos or patterns:
*SIZES. If you’d like any clothing items, please list your sizes below. If you don’t want any of these items, you can skip this section. e.g. if you list “slippers” please include your shoe size, if you list “mittens” please include the measurement across the broad part of your hand, and maybe… finger length? or distance from wrist to end of your longest finger?). If you want a headband/ear warmer include the measurement around that part of your head. Keep in mind, it is a MEDIUM swap so we probably won’t be trading full on cozy sweaters/jumpers… this time
Do you have any allergies?
Does your home have any allergens (i.e.-smokers, pets, etc…)?
Any other info you’d like to share? (Anything to help your partner be successful in making a package that you will LOVE!)
