Rush rush, hurry hurry, work work…do you feel that you don’t ever really stop and draw breath? There’s the huge pre- Christmas build up, the manic festive season and then we’re being shown bikinis and Easter eggs by Boxing Day and it seems as though we’ve had a January bypass.

The Scandanavians seem to have got it beautifully worked out with their hygge model for life. For them, this season is about hunkering down indoors after a bracing winter walk and appreciating friends and family. Its about lighting candles, woolly blankets, comfort food and appreciating the changing season. The nights are getting longer and here on the sunny Isle we get some fabulous days.

At Bayliss & Booth we’re embracing the season and have got lots of lovely things to make your hygge winter a pleasure. How about supper by the fire? A warming and hearty soup to warm your cockles is just the thing after a winter walk and there’s nothing nicer than beautiful cutlery to give your soup a touch of everyday luxury so why not start collecting our Laguiole range.

We have selected a comprehensive range by Master Cutler Andre Verdier, a French fine cutlery maker since 1859. Each Laguiole piece has a bumble bee signature on the handle, a motif dating back to France in the Napoleon times and was originally produced in 1829 in the centre of France in a small town called Laguiole. It’s available in three classic colours and a host of vibrant colours too and starts at just £5.50.

So get your hygge started and embrace the season!
