Select Shopping | Try a bit of cosiness

Summer may have passed for another year, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to despair. With a little bit of hygge know how, it’s easy to overcome the chilly nights, and turn your home into its own little centre of cosiness. From candy to movies, we have you covered.     

 

Candy MegaStore Copenhagen: A hygge night in just isn’t complete without candy. Whilst Denmark may have many candy stores, the best has to be the Candy Megastore. With literally hundreds of types of candy, this shop is a must for those with a sweet tooth. They have a special emphasis on American candy and soft drinks, with famous brands such as Hershey´s, Wonka, Mountain Dew, and many more available.

Bering House of Flowers: With the days getting shorter, and the nights darker, now is the time to bring a bit of life into your home. Bering House of Flowers is one of the city’s most beautiful and well-known florists. With window displays that would put most shops to shame, it’s the perfect place to pick up some greenery and home decorating ideas. Their talented decorators are always on hand to offer inspiration, and they truly are experts at arranging flowers for any occasion.

Blockbuster: Few things are as universal as Blockbuster. Since 1985 they’ve been providing lonely punters with something to do on a Saturday night. That being said, there’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with a good movie. Offering one day rentals on the latest blockbusters for a mere 39 kroner, it’s cheaper than a beer in most upmarket places. If movies aren’t your thing, they also offer a range of video games for hire, and have movies for sale.

They have biscuits, ice cream, meats, frozen meals, wines, and so much more. Offering a great home delivery service, as well as personal pick-up, this is one shop that is sure to help keep the home sickness at bay.
