Christmas is the most hyggelig of seasons, and in this book Becci shares over fifty ideas to bring a touch of Scandinavian cosiness to your home this winter. The chapters cover everything from sumptuous edible gifts and home-made presents with a Nordic flavour, 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 favourite 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.

“I initially snagged this title because I’ve been in a mood lately and was hoping to get some ideas for the holiday season to cheer me up.
NOT PREPARED FOR THE SHEER AMOUNT OF FESTIVITY BURSTING OUT OF THIS BOOK!! From decorating ideas to edible gifts- my expectations of what I’d get out of this were FAR exceeded. Everything was so well organized and SO much thought and love was put into this book. Each recipe or craft is wonderfully detailed and includes extra information that may prove helpful- how long things can be made in advance and can be stored, which recipes are great to incorporate with your kids, what you may have around your house in case you don’t have a certain item for one of the crafts.
AND…THE GNOMES!! THE GNOMES, THE GNOMES, THE GNOMES!!! (IYKYK)- I AM MAKING ALL THOSE LITTLE DUDES- ugh, they are sheer perfection and they don’t require sewing so- GAME ON!!
I will credit (and blame) this book when my home is overrun with full-size and mini gnomes this holiday season (but I do have an excess of socks missing their partners, so I guess I’ll use them for this project instead of wearing two different socks ;-)).” Samantha R, Netgalley review
“Wow I love this book. It has a great mix of craft, decorations, recipes, gifts and games. All with that wonderful Scandi look. Plenty of pictures and good descriptions as to how to complete the various projects. I shall be buying this book as gifts once it is published in paper print.” Susan P, Netgalley review
“A beautiful book of Christmas crafts, decorations, gifts, and food ideas. All of the projects seem very doable, with clear instructions and measurements/quantities, and gorgeous photos for each step. I plan to make the candied almonds and marzipan, a woven star chandelier — and we’ll see what happens after that!” Mo P, Netgalley review
