09 Dec It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
With just over two weeks to go until the big day, we’re starting to feel really festive. Everywhere you go, Christmas songs are playing and people are buying presents. All we need now is a bit of snow fall and really will feel Christmassy. But if you’re yet to get into the spirit, here are some ideas for welcoming Christmas into your home.
Okay so we know that December has already begun, but we just couldn’t resist this homemade advent calendar from realsimple.com. Get your hands on 24 paper bags and paint a number on for each day. Then fill each bag with sugary treats, waiting to be opened.
Christmas Tree (for kids)
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a tree. You may find that your little ones want to make their own contribution to the decorations. If so, head to notonthehighstreet.com and purchase this colour in Christmas tree poster. Not only will it keep them entertained for hours, it’ll also work well as a personalised decoration for their bedroom. And at £10 each, you really can’t go wrong.
Modern Christmas Tree
Although many of us abide by festive traditions, a rustic-looking Christmas tree may look out of place in your home. For those used to modern living, southernliving.com has come up with a clever solution – a modern Christmas tree. We love that this glittery tree looks laden down with snow. Choose decorations to match the colour palette of your room – that way, the tree will look as though it belongs there.
Infuse your home with the scent of Christmas and save pennies on baubles for the tree by baking your own Christmas biscuits. Store them in an air-tight container like in this picture from lovehome.co.uk. This will keep them fresh. On Christmas day morning, punch a hole in the top of each biscuit and tie a loop of ribbon through. Then simply hang them on the tree and surprise your guests – you could even personalise each one if you have enough time.
