So, here are my top 5 ways to well and truly get into the festive spirit!
1. Listening to Christmas tunes
Whilst I’m still at work, and there are still lots of restrictions in place for going out, this is one of the things that has made me feel the most Christmassy.
We have been listening to them lots at work and in the car.
If a Christmas sing along doesn’t get you into the festive spirit, what will!!
2. Watching a Christmas film 📽
I LOVE Christmas films for adding a bit of festive cheer into your life.
Even more so as the cinemas are closed. I miss it more than I thought.
I shared some of my faves in a earlier Blogmas post so check them out here !
Grab some popcorn, your fave festive chocs, a hot choc perhaps? And you’ve got yourself a super festive afternoon.
3. Reading a Christmas book 📚
As soon as November hits I start the festive reads and I don’t stop until February.
If you love festive books as much as me then take a look at these ones, they are some that I’ve really enjoyed.
Books are a great escape from reality and perfect for a bit of festive downtime during the Christmas chaos.
4. Christmas Day Prep 🎁
I love wrapping presents, planning Christmassy activities and of course planning the Christmas eats too.
I know that this year is going to be a bit different in terms of Christmas, but its important to make the most of the situation we are in, enjoy what we can do and not focus on what we can’t.
And hey, you might even end up with a new fun tradition thanks to 2020!
I love stocking up on a few of our favourite Christmas treats, like mince pies and slowly picking up buffet bits and bobs, from various shops depending on what they have each year.
And wrapping presents for my loved ones always makes me feel super festive 😊🎁
5. Festive baking 🥧
I really enjoy baking and festive flavours (except you cinnamon 🤢) so I always look forward to baking at this time of year, especially when you can indulge a little more, guilt free, and try all your efforts.
I’ve been looking up some yummy ideas to inspire my baking over the next week or so!
Here’s a festive recipe I’ve already tried out. They were super yummy!
Until Next Time,
