Start Those Festive Holiday Parties
The holidays are the perfect time to throw a party with your friends, family, and even co-workers. You can’t forget about those sweet treats either – what better way to dip pretzels than in white chocolate?

Get Creative With Your Gift Wrapping
Don’t be afraid to go outside of the box with your gift wrap this year. The internet is filled with funny and creative wrapping paper. You could even make your own wrapping paper this year using brown kraft paper, paint, ribbons, and more.
You only get the winter season once a year, so why not make the most out of it? Skip going to see a movie in the theaters and take some time to enjoy the great outdoors.
If there’s snow where you live, consider going skiing. One thing I love to do is go for evening walks and look at everyones Christmas lights.
Get Warm and Cozy
After spending some time outdoors, the holidays are the perfect time to get warm and cozy inside while you watch your favorite show or movie on Netflix. Make some hot cocoa and grab your favorite blanket while you’re at it.
Make Handmade Gifts
Another thing I love about Christmas is making handmade gifts. Bake a batch of cookies and give them to your friends and family. If this isn’t for you, consider making some hot cocoa mix in a jar instead! It’s simple and easy but will definitely be appreciated by anyone who receives it.
This is one of my favorite things to do when Christmastime arrives. Grab your friends and take a walk around town singing Christmas carols. Even when its cold outside, it’s completely worth it when people appreciate what you were doing and wish you well!
Pull Out Your Ugly Christmas Sweater
I’m pretty sure everyone has a ugly Christmas sweater in their closet somewhere. Pull it out and have fun with it. If you don’t have one, go to a thrift shop or your nearest Walmart or Target.
You can even make your own from scratch by using some fabric paint, a plain sweater, garland, glitter, and other accessories.
Build a Fort
Get together with friends and family and build a huge fort in the living room. Make sure to bring hot cocoa, snacks, pillows, and anything that’ll help keep everyone warm and cozy inside while having fun.
Watch Christmas Movies
Nothing calms the mind and boosts your mood like watching your favorite Christmas movie. Grab all the snacks and drinks and curl up on a comfy couch and watch your favorite holiday movies with friends and family, or enjoying your own company.
Inspiration for all things Christmas has never been more accessible. There are so many photos of the most festive, wintery places to visit and decorating ideas that it’s hard not to get caught up in the holiday spirit.
