What is hygge: coping with the winter months

17 Nov 2018

Have you ever wondered what exactly “hygge” means? When winter comes, here at 24Bottles we are ready to pamper you while keeping your drinks hot with Clima Bottle!

A couple of years ago, romanticizing Scandinavians’ way of life started to become a popular amusement all around the world: “hygge”!
The phenomenon was highly related to the spreading of a Danish concept that started trending in 2016 when “The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living” by Meik Wiking was published.
The concept of “hygge” spread fast from the UK to the US, after bringing cosiness throughout Europe.

The meaning of “hygge”

As there’s no direct translation for “hygge”, the term has been described as everything from “the art of creating intimacy”, “cosiness of the soul”, “the absence of annoyance” to “taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things”, “cosy togetherness” and “the pursuit of everyday pleasures”.

Denmark is not the only country that has a word for a concept similar to “hygge”: the Norwegians have “koselig”, the Swedes “mysigt”, the Dutch “gezenlligheid” and the Germans “gemütlichkeit”.
Another factor that helped “hygge” become such a popular term is that, according to the UN World Happiness Report, Denmark has been capable of ranking among the top-three happiest countries in the world for the seventh consecutive year.

Bring some “hygge” into your life with 24Bottles!

24Bottles’ Clima Bottle is your perfect “hygge” companion for the winter months: its double-walled and insulated technology keeps your drinks hot up to twelve hours (and cold for 24 hours, but that will come at hand during summer).
That means you can fill your Clima Bottle with your favourite hot drink in the morning before going to work, and sip it just at the right temperature all day long.
Of course, you don’t need to live in Denmark to have some “hygge” time with your Clima Bottle, but we can learn so much about enjoying the winter weather from a country where the average temperature in December is 0°C and the sun sets at 3 PM.
A nice fire-lit cosy intimacy and a good cup of hot tea or coffee are just what you need to get along with the coldest months of the year.
With Clima Bottle, you can now take that “hygge” feeling always with you, anywhere, anytime.
