Hygge In A Box Winnipeg Manitoba
How would you describe your business?
Hygge in a Box is a passionate pursuit of the Danish concept of coziness and mindfulness. Our unique curation process selects products exclusively from Canadian businesses, emphasizing natural, fair-trade, and sustainable materials when possible and ensuring that every item contributes to a sense of comfort and connection. We’re dedicated to delivering eco-friendly, high-quality experiences, all in one beautifully packaged box.
What sets Hygge in a Box apart is the depth of thought and passion that goes into each curation. My personal journey of healing and self-discovery through Hygge is the driving force behind our offerings. With a background in urban homesteading and a deep appreciation for slow living, we like to bring a unique perspective to the curation process that aims to not only offer coziness in a box but to allow others to enjoy some “me time” for their own wellbeing and mental health.
What inspired you to open your shop?
My business journey was inspired by memories of family rituals, experiences and the comforting moments we shared as a family, true Hygge experiences. However, a tragic loss forced me to reevaluate life. I found solace in gardening and slow living, realizing that Hygge was the key to my healing. Recognizing the need for Hygge in our busy world, I founded Hygge Canada in 2017 and then Hygge in a Box in 2019. We aim to bring inner comfort, clarity & connection to others through events, retreats, and subscription boxes, helping people rediscover mindfulness in today’s fast-paced life.
