19 Danish Things You Can Buy on Amazon

While we have no problem with hygge (the Danish word for cozy, which recently took the New York Times “Styles” section by storm), we’re kind of hygged-out. Maybe it’s because of how loosely the term is being tossed around. No, watching Summer House in your pajamas while eating lukewarm Pad See Ew is not hygge. However: We are not beautiful-things-from-Denmark-ed-out. Which is why we’ve decided to round up a few items you can buy very easily on Amazon that are actually from that aesthetically superior country. Not all of them are in the spirit of hygge, though, okay, a good number of them are. Because, yes, it does sound very nice to sit in front of a fire in our Glerups, munching on an aebleskiver and watching Borgen.

There is little more elegant than these classic blue-floral Royal Copenhagen mugs. (Here are more non-Danish mugs we like.)

Glerups Unisex Slippers
From $90

Some cozy felt slippers from the culty Danish slippers line Glerups.

So you can make aebleskivers (delicious Danish pancake puffs) at your leisure.

Or if you’d rather not cook your Danish pastries, why not subscribe to a kringle-a-month club? (A kringle is a buttery pretzel-looking pastry that was first introduced to Racine, Wisconsin, in the 1800s by Danish immigrants.) These kringles are made in that very same Wisconsin town by O&H Bakery.

The greatest Danish TV show — Borgen, about a female prime minister — in all its three seasons of glory.


It used to be if you wanted a Dansk Kobenstyle casserole you had to scrounge for one at a vintage shop or on Etsy. Thankfully, Dansk rereleased their classic enamel cookware a few years ago.


Finn Juhl, one of the great Danish mid-century furniture designers, also happened to be a wonderful watercolorist. This book, the first to collect his paintings, is out January 24, but you can preorder it now. (For our favorite coffee-table books of the past year, click here.)

A sleek, stainless-steel teabag holder (for loose tea leaves) from Danish kitchenware line Eva Solo.

Oh, how we love Scandinavian candy! These wine gummies come courtesy of Spunk. According to Wikipedia, in 1971, the founders came across the word spunk in the book Pippi in the South Seas. (For more obscure candy we like, click here.)

Note: This is currently unavailable, but Amazon carries other kinds of Scandinavian candy here and here.

Make your dirty laundry something to be happy about with this graphic hamper from Ferm Living, a homewares line founded by the owner of an Aarhus-based graphic-design agency.

Note: This is currently unavailable, but the larger version is still available here.

We actually own a set of these salt and pepper grinders from Menu (and we really like them!).

Norse Projects is a Copenhagen menswear line that the menswear crowd gets all jazzed up about. This navy beanie happens to be 30 percent off right now.

Note: Unfortunately, this beanie has sold out on Amazon! The same one is available for $75 at Need Supply.

A ten-CD set (featuring symphonies, concertos, and short orchestral pieces) from Carl Nielson, considered the country’s most prominent classical music composer.

Keep your coffee warm and your iced tea cold with this handsome Stelton vacuum mug.

Since René Redzepi’s legendary Copenhagen restaurant Noma closed last year, this 2010 cookbook is kind of a collector’s item.

This ashtray, created by architect-designer Arne Jacobsen for Stelton in 1967, comes with a revolving lid to hide your cigarette butts.

A cozy flannel button-down from Won Hundred (which Fashionista called “like A.P.C. but less precious”). It happens to be 50 percent off.

Note: This is currently unavailable on Amazon, but you can get a cozy Won Hundred sweatshirt instead.

Some ’60s-inspired handblown whiskey glasses from iconic Danish glassware line Normann Copenhagen.

A set of cheery Bloomingville ceramic bowls — for mixing your aebleskiver batter.
