When the weather outside is frightful, a cozy gift makes staying indoors much more delightful. But when you think of “cozy”, there are more options than plush pillows or soft blankets — though those are always a welcome gift. In the Hygge trend from Norway, which is all about making interiors more inviting, an air of warmth can come through decorative accessories with rich (or natural) textures, earthy colors, and gentle lighting. Here are just a few of our favorite luxurious gifts that also help cozy up an interior.
Why we love it: Though this blanket is by the fashion house known for wild designs, this soft throw has a more subtle woven pattern. The rich color, which brings to mind an Italian stucco building illuminated by sunset, is bold without being overwhelming.
Why we love it: Shades of tan and gray create an understated pattern on this distinctive accent pillow. Flip it over, and you’ll find a reverse side fully made from soft mohair.
Why we love it: The dimensional texture of sheepskin turns a pouf into a whimsical statement. Even better? The pouf hides a little extra storage for stowing small items.
Why we love this set: Does it get any more luxurious than (faux) fur? We think not. This stunning set makes your favorite sofa feel like a chalet escape.
Why we love it: An element of nostalgia makes an interior feel more welcoming — and the easiest way to incorporate this element is with a favorite old photo. This stylish frame is wrapped in a purple embossed leather that sets off black and white photographs particularly well.
Why we love it: Though we love all forms of lighting, none can compare to the warm glow of candlelight. This unique holder is made from acacia, a wood with an exquisite grain that’s enhanced by a polished finish (which also subtly gleams in the candlelight).
Why we love them: A handcrafted piece feels luxurious in an understated way. These artful trays are formed from wood, bringing a touch of nature to your coffee table.
