25 Ways to get into the Festive Spirit


Okay, so I love Christmas, I'm sure if you read my blog that you know this. However the older I've got the less festive I've felt, so now I actively seek out festive fun in the lead up to Christmas to ensure I still get that magical rush the festive period can bring. 

I know other people struggle with feeling festive as they get older so I thought I'd come up with a huge list of 25 ways you can get into the festive spirit. Just in case you wanted to partake in the festive cheer everyday in December until Christmas Day!

1. Have a Christmas movie evening with yummy snacks (Love Actually, Home Alone and The Family Stone are my all-time favs! ) 
2. DIY easy but pretty clay Christmas tree decorations - found here.
3. Write a Christmas list both of what you plan to buy and what you are hoping for this year
4. Spend a Sunday afternoon Christmas baking - I love the Nigella Christmas book
5. Pop on some Christmas Michael Buble or the Christmas Pop playlist on Spotify 
6. Go Christmas decoration shopping. My favourite shops have to be The Range and Homesense!
7. Read through my Christmas posts here from last year 
8. If you're a mummy create a new tradition with Elf on the Shelf - Amazon here
9. Talking of elves, look up your Elf name here (please refer to me as Sugarplum Peppermint-buns for the duration of December)
10. Go ice skating (terrifying but festive!) 
11. Treat yourself to a advent calendar... or two! Favourite chocolate advent - Thorntons Continental - Thorntons here. Favourite beauty advent - Ciate Mini Mani Month here
12. Give yourself glittery Christmas nails 
13. Learn how to make 3D paper snowflakes here and impress literally everyone! 
14. Invest in Christmas bedding (you can't beat Asda George Home)
15. Look up Christmas gift guides and hauls on Youtube 
16. Take a bath with a festive bath bomb from Lush 
17. Have a craft evening making Christmas cards and gift tags
18. Visit a UK Christmas market 
19. Have a mini Christmas buffet on a plate
20. Make Sunday 29th November your Christmas tree decorating day! 
21. Experiment with baking your own Christmas treats to give as gifts
22. Go late night Christmas shopping  
23. Take a festive fiction read to bed with you
24. Download a Christmas Countdown app on your phone
25. Treat yourself to novelty festive clothing - a jumper, pyjamas, socks
Hope this has made you feel festive! 

I'd love to know what makes you feel the most festive and also your elf name!
