Five ways to get into the Christmas Spirit
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – or it will soon enough! The holiday season will be here before you know it and it’s time to get you into the Christmas spirit. Don’t worry if you aren’t quite there yet, we’ve got you covered. From baking fresh cookies and listing to your favourite holiday tunes, to watching movies and decorating the house – there are many ways to light up Christmas spirit. To help you get started with all the festive fun, we’ve put together five ideas to bring your Christmas jingle back and get you into the right mood. Ho, ho, ho!
Have a Christmas movie marathon
Pull up a blanket, sit back and relax! There’s nothing quite like a Christmas movie marathon. Bring on that warm and fuzzy feeling we can only associate with the festive season. It doesn’t matter how many times we’ve seen it, watching Will Ferrell play the part of Buddy Elf never gets old. If you haven’t already tried it then you’ve surely considered syrup and chocolate on your spaghetti. Other Christmas must-see movies are Home Alone, The Grinch, Love Actually, The Holiday or The Santa Clause.
For the ultimate movie night, get your friends and family together, prepare some snacks and enjoy the laughter and feel-good moments! To keep your movie snacks fresh, check out our Daily Range. And remember “The best way to spread Christmas cheer, is singing loud for all to hear” – Buddy Elf.
Bake cookies with the family
The mouth-watering smell of freshly baked cookies is another way to get into the joyful Christmas spirit. The holiday season is all about spending time with loved ones and making fun-filled memories. The whole family can join in with baking these star cookies from Donna Hay – you can even make some extra batches to gift to your relatives and friends. To ensure your cookies will be a great success, you’ll need the right utensils to help you whisk, measure and stir. Our Gadgets Range is not only super stylish but is also incredibly durabale.
Turn up the Christmas music
Dance around the tree to your favourite Christmas hits! You’ve heard them a hundred times and know every word, so go ahead and sing at the top of your lungs. Whether it’s Michael Bublé, Mariah Carey or a classic jingle – they all spark that feeling of Christmas magic. We love this Christmas Hits list on Spotify. Press play while baking, putting up decorations or going for a drive to keep that merry feeling jingling away.
Start your Christmas shopping
Spread the joy and excitement by getting started on your Christmas shopping! Save the stress of last-minute shopping by starting early and have fun browsing plenty of different ideas for all your friends and family. One of the most special parts of Christmas is the gift of giving. We cherish those faces of delight and excitement found when unwrapping a surprise. Be sure to spoil your super-organised friend with this 10-piece storage cube set, or the tea lover in your group with a set of our Display containers – purposely made to keep tea and coffee fresh. For more fun gift ideas read our cooking gift and organising gift guide.
Light up your home
What would be Christmas without decorations? Enhance your home with garlands, lights, and wreaths, hang some snowflakes and ornaments down your windows and last but not least don’t forget to put up the tree. You can’t not be in a festive mood when Christmas is all around! To top it off, light on some Christmas candles to fill your home with scents of gingerbread, pine and clove.
