Are you planning a more intimate Christmas at home with family this year?
Are you planning a more intimate Christmas at home with family this year? Or maybe you’re still trying to figure out how to get into the festive mood? Well don't worry as we’ve listed seven ways to help you achieve that Christmassy vibe, so you can enjoy the upcoming festivities.
Deck the hall with boughs of holly
A natural wreath is a great way to say, “It’s Christmas!”. Check out your local florist, or if you’re on a tighter budget this year, then why not make your own wreath to hang in your hallway or on your front door? If there aren’t any wreath-making workshops nearby then look online; YouTube has lots of fun, crafty videos to get you in the mood.
Send someone special your love
If you’ve not seen loved ones for a long time, then this year why not send them a special festive message? Whether it’s through a Christmas card, an animated email or a social media message, sending heartfelt words to someone you care about after a difficult year is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit. Sharing is caring.
Tasty nibbles, snacks and treats
One great way to get into the Christmas spirit is by writing a list (and tasting) all those delicious edibles, which are only allowed at this time of year. Whether it’s a baked camembert with redcurrant jelly or a fancy pate, start scrolling through local deli websites or online merchants. The world is your oyster…
Make an early start on presents
Avoid any last-minute Christmas stress by starting on your gift list as soon as you can. If you’re stuck for ideas, consider practical presents for special loved ones, such as a gorgeous red tartan reclining armchair. Or, if you’re looking for smaller original gifts, then consider buying from independent artisans on online sites such as Etsy.
Stock up on your fave tipple
Tis the time of ‘gincidents’, and cheeky whiskies or brandies! But before you stock up on your fave drink or plonk, also bear in mind any non-alcohol drinkers. If you’re only having a small festive gathering this year, then check out who’s driving and what they like to drink. There are some great zero-alcohol alternatives for wine, gin and beer fans, so why not add some other tipples to your shopping list?
Snuggle up in style
Whether you’re sat in your fave, comfy armchair or you’re nestled between little ones on the sofa, a soft, warm luxurious throw is a great way to enjoy Christmas (and any other time of the year!). Nowadays, a snuggly throw is a quintessential item for any living room. So, curl up on Christmas Day to watch your fave festive film with a hot cuppa or glass of mulled wine.
Plan in some time to unwind
Without some careful planning, Christmas can easily get very stressful. So, don’t forget to book in some ‘me time’where you can sit back, relax and put your feet up in a cosy armchair. And remember, the festivities are only as good as the people you’re spending time with, so make the most of your time with family and friends.
