Our Story

by Laura Donnelly on May 02, 2021

Welcome to Hygge at Home, your haven of cosiness, where magic meets self-care.

I'm Laura Donnelly, the proud owner and founder of this enchanting space, formerly known as Little Box of Hygge. I'm thrilled to introduce you to our world of hygge-inspired treasures and guide you on a journey towards a more serene and joyful life.

My own love affair with hygge began a few months before Covid, when I discovered the Danish philosophy of finding happiness in life's simple pleasures. Making the most of the small things, enjoying moments of togetherness each day and always having something, albeit small, to look forward to really helped us get through those initial 12 weeks of the first lockdown along with our young children. We cooked, baked and enjoyed meals together as a family. We took our daily walk with a flask of hot chocolate and looked forward to our Friday night movie under the blankets with popcorn and pizza. We spent our Sundays crafting, creating and playing board games and, underneath all the uncertainty and angst about the worldwide situation, hygge helped us to stay happy, safe and mentally healthy.

Inspired by the nurturing power of hygge, the warm glow of candlelight and the soothing scents that enveloped my space, I set out to create Hygge at Home.

One of our proudest offerings is our hand-poured candles. Each candle is meticulously crafted with love and care, using premium soy wax and infused with captivating fragrances that transport you to a state of tranquility. The soft flickering flame and comforting scents create a cosy ambiance that invites you to unwind, relax, and embrace the present moment.

In addition to our candles (and also wax melts and diffusers), we have carefully curated a natural skincare range that nourishes both your skin and your soul. Harnessing the power of nature's ingredients, our skincare products are thoughtfully formulated to provide a gentle and indulgent self-care experience. From luxurious body butters to rejuvenating facial masks, each product is created with your well-being in mind, free from harsh chemicals and artificial additives.

At Hygge at Home, we love curating hygge gift boxes that are truly special and meaningful. We believe in supporting local artisans, crafters, and makers who pour their heart and soul into their creations. Each item included in our hygge gift boxes is carefully selected to reflect the spirit of hygge and the craftsmanship of talented individuals in our community. By choosing our gift boxes, you not only embrace the hygge lifestyle but also support the thriving local creative community. We help individuals and organisations to gift items that everybody appreciates and enjoys but also don’t have a detrimental effect on the environment. We create gift boxes that encapsulate the essence of hygge. The items in the box allow the recipient to have a moment of calm, wellness, and relaxation in the comfort of their own home; items that everybody can enjoy and that they will appreciate.

At Hygge at Home, we are passionate about sustainability and conscious living. We believe in the importance of taking care of our planet and promoting ethical practices. That's why our candles are crafted using eco-friendly materials, and our skincare range embraces natural and organic ingredients sourced responsibly.

But Hygge at Home is more than just products—it's a community. Our podcast, blog, social media channels, and website are all designed to foster a supportive network where you can connect with like-minded individuals, seek inspiration, and share in the joy of embracing hygge together.

So, come and explore our cosy sanctuary, where you'll discover hand-poured candles that ignite a sense of calm, natural skincare that nurtures your well-being and gift boxes filled with beautiful treats. Let us be your guide as you create a space that truly feels like home, enveloped in the warmth and tranquility of hygge.

I invite you to embark on this enchanting journey with us, where magic meets self-care.

Welcome to Hygge at Home.

Warmest wishes,

Laura Donnelly

Owner, Hygge at Home

Hi There,

Hope you are well,

Greenleaf is an independent environmental certification body and tech company, developing tools to help people and businesses measure and manage their impact in real-time, This has been essential in the world’s current situation and with the government’s current and incoming legislation also been essential for businesses.

Our Route-to-Zero events are all about raising awareness for environmental issues, engagement with Green-tech & eco-friendly businesses, and funds for green initiatives. This helps and supports businesses to be able to connect to similar companies in the same field of work.

The August event which we’re running in conjunction with one of our clients, Chelmsford City Racecourse, is a world first. This is going to be a two-day event and includes the first-ever zero-carbon race day.

Day one is a Greentech Expo with 150+ businesses attending being able to show their new or current Greentech or green products that the businesses produce, This is going to be great for businesses to be able to promote their stuff to a large number of attendees that will be coming on the day.

Day two is the race day itself, with 7,000 expected attendees. Our Route-to-zero event also falls directly in the middle of Chelmsford’s sustainability week and the event is going to be televised with 1.4m expected to tune in.

I wondered if it’d be possible to jump on a call with you to see about getting involved in the event and exhibiting? Think this would be a great way to showcase the brand and products that you offer. We have also got attendance from a number of town councils furthermore helping promote your brand.

If you would like more information I can send you over an information pack in the next couple of days, Otherwise it would be great to jump on a call to discuss any questions you may have.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your week, Ricardo
