The perfect gift for any fan of Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute, Copenhagen and his international bestselling books—this beautifully designed boxed set brings together The Little Book of Hygge, The Little Book of Lykke, and The Art of Making Memories.

The Little Book of Hyyge is the definitive guide to the Danish way of life. Denmark is often said to be the happiest country in the world. That's down to one thing: hygge. “Hygge has been translated as everything from the art of creating intimacy to cosiness of the soul to taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things…” You know hygge when you feel it. It is when you are cuddled up on a sofa with a loved one, drinking cocoa by candlelight, or sharing comfort food with your closest friends. It is those crisp blue mornings when the light through your window is just right. In The Little Book of Hygge, Meik Wiking will be your guide to all things hygge: from picking the right lighting and planning a dinner party through to creating an emergency hygge kit and even how to dress.

The Little Book of Lykke is Meik Wiking’s eagerly awaited follow up to The Little Book of Hygge. Nobody knows more about happiness—what the Danes call lykke—than Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Institute in Copenhagen. But he believes that, while we can certainly learn a lot from the Danes about finding fulfilment, the keys to happiness are actually buried all around the globe. In The Little Book of Lykke, he takes us on a treasure hunt to unlock the doors to the good life. From how we spend our precious time, to how we relate to our neighbours and cook dinner, he gathers evidence, stories and tips from the very happiest corners of the planet. The Little Book of Lykke is the ultimate guide to how we can all find a little more happiness in our lives.

In his third book, The Art of Making Memories, combining research on happiness and mnemonics, Meik Wiking explores how peak experiences are made, stored and remembered. Every year, we are given a fixed number of days. Some days pass us by without leaving a trace and some days we remember forever. Do you remember your first kiss? Or how the first rays of the spring sun feel? Or how about the best meal you ever had? These memorable experiences are characterized by intensity of perception, depth of feeling or sense of profound significance causing them to stand out in our mind and involve a heightened sense of wonder and awe. But what ingredients produce these happy memories? Why is it that a piece of music, a smell, a taste can take us back to something we had forgotten? And can we learn to create happy memories and be better at holding on to them? The Art of Making Memories will answer how we can we create perfect moments. Moments that will go down in history. Moments that will shape who we are.
