It’s that time of year again. Christmas tree’s are popping up left right and centre; mince pies are shoved in our faces every time we set foot in the supermarket and the music from the Coca-Cola advert has been stuck in your head for days (holidays are coming, holidays are coming…).
So unless you’re one of those super-organised ‘been soaking the Christmas cake since September’ types (who are these people?) you’re probably starting to feel the pressure; well have no fear! We have put together our 5 Top Tips for getting it all right this year!
Make your list and check it twice – Hey, if it works for Father Christmas it can work for you too! Not only does this cut down on the risk of forgetting someone, it’s also so so satisfying to check things off and see how close to finished you are!
Buy it all online, and do it early!! – The world is at your fingertips, everything you need for everyone you love from the comfort of your sofa. Just remember to get your orders in early, Christmas isn’t quite so magical if you receive your gifts in the first week of January!
Shared Gifts – Instead of buying every single person you know a gift, why not agree to all put some money in the kitty and go on a mini-holiday, or throw a big party instead? You’ll have twice the fun and half the assorted bath products/ chocolates/ socks to buy and receive.
Pin your ideas – Remember that super cool thing that you saw on that website? That you thought would make a great gift for your best mate? Cant find it again? Should have pinned it! You can also browse other people’s boards for some great ideas (why not check out ours?)
Dont Stress! – Christmas is so often taken over by stressing abut family feuds, inadequate gifts and the perfect Christmas lunch. Well guess what? All that doesn’t really matter, just focus on what really matters, having an excuse to mope around on front of the TV eating mince pies and drinking mulled wine. And spending time with the family, of course.
