Christmas is the most hyggelig of seasons, and in this book Becci shares over fifty ideas to bring a touch of Scandinavian coziness to your home this winter. The chapters cover everything from sumptuous edible gifts and homemade presents with a Nordic flavor, to traditional Danish crafts with which to decorate your space.
Projects include a wild winter birch wreath, woven julestjerner star chandelier, five-minute sock gnomes and even a Christmas tree bath scrub! Try your hand at a quick finger-crochet scarf, scented white clay ornaments, or make bangles, cushions and baubles from a pre-loved sweater. Becci’s favorite recipes for the ultimate in Danish festive comfort food cover both baking and the all-important Christmas Eve feast, plus there are traditional after-dinner games for all the family to enjoy.
Becci spent her childhood holidays on the family farm in Denmark, and grew up with a love for all things Scandinavian. Originally she trained as an archaeologist (Vikings, of course), before traveling the world and becoming a successful glass artist. She now runs www.hyggestyle.co.uk, an online boutique specializing in Danish and Scandinavian gifts, homewares, recipe and craft ideas. She also teaches bushcraft and survival, lives with her son, cat and chickens, and loves schnapps. She was nominated as one of the Mumpreneur 100, and has won both BT’s Best Home Business of the Year Award and ITV’s Britain’s Best Dish (best pudding in the South!). Her articles and recipes are regularly featured in the national press, and her products on TV. She has also been a key-note speaker on the topic of hygge and Women in Business at various events.
"Absolutely love this..... So many fabulous ideas for Christmas I'm spoilt for choice over where to start! Do I make to sell at Christmas Fayres, do I keep for myself and family or do I make to give as presents? So many nice decisions to be able to make and there's something for everyone in here young and old and whatever gender. Many thanks for letting me read this book I will be looking out for more from Becci."

"A gorgeous book stuffed full of cosy projects and foodie treats which would make a great addition to any collection of Christmas books. The projects are very well explained and so infinitely 'doable ' without the need for expensive equipment or complicated techniques. I have several in mind to try for Christmas this year. This book would make a delightful early Christmas present for anyone who enjoys a hands on approach to preparing their end of year festivities."
