So I'm thinking of buying the Google Home Mini and picking up some Philips HUE LEDs, will they work right out of the box with the Home Mini? Or will I need to separately buy the HUE Bridge too?

You'll need the Hue bridge. The bulbs/leds etc only talk with the bridge. Then Google Home Mini talks with the bridge. There is no "real" way around it.
