It’s that time of the year again, children begging you for toys, hanging up stockings and mall santas. Holiday cheer is all around and here are 6 tips to make your holiday season an even more cheerful one!
Those of you who haven’t put up your Christmas trees yet its high time you did. This year opt for a fake Christmas tree rather than a real one. It’s better for the environment and will be less of a hassle!
Christmas gift wrapping can be a pain especially if you have a lot of gifts to wrap. Try to wrap them beforehand so that you won’t be left struggling with them at the very last minute. If you are feeling creative you could use old newspaper with colored comic strips to wrap the gifts because let’s face it the kids or your friends probably aren’t going to be very careful to not tear the wrapping paper.
More important than gift wrapping are the gifts and a lot of people have trouble with this. If you can’t think of what the person may want then gift vouchers or gift cards are a great idea. A good rule of the thumb is to give gifts that are practical.
4)Food and Guests
This can be quite tricky especially if you are a social butterfly who usually hosts a big Christmas party and if the money is tight this can pose an even bigger problem. To handle this issue, we suggest that you should throw a potluck style end of year Christmas party. Ask your friends to chip in and try to help with the pre party planning and arrangements. Remember the fashion show style cloth exchange we suggested as a way to save money, you could host one of those and make this event more fun!
Every year, during the holiday season, there are a lot of accidents and we all have to do our part to prevent them. Remember to not drink and drive. Have fun but stay safe.
The holidays are supposed to be about hope and giving! So, this holiday season try to cut back a bit on your holiday spending and try to help out those in need. You could drop off gift boxes at children homes. In short, just try to do your part to spread the holiday cheer!
Happy holidays everyone!
