7 Things to do to get in the Christmas Spirit

Welcome to Blogmas Day 1! I’ve always done Vlogmas before… well, not always, but for the past 3 years. Due to my little break from filming, and the fact that I’ll be on holiday for half of it, I thought I’d give Blogmas a go! So, without further a-do, here are some iconic things that’ll probably help you get into the Christmas Spirit!

1. Get a Calendar

If you haven’t got one already, this is definitely a must – even if it’s a chocolate one! Christmas is the best time to treat yourself, head to your nearest co-op and grab yourself a calendar… Bet they’ve got some right bargains on now!

2. Pop a Christmas Movie on

Spoiler Alert: I’ll be helping you out on this one further into Blogmas. However, I’m gonna take this opportunity to find this film that I can’t remember the name of… here’s the plot:

At the end of the movie, the parents buy a house and the little girl gets a puppy. It isn’t Miracle on 34th Street, not sure what it is… If you know, please tell me!

3. Light a Candle

Christmas time is the perfect excuse to light a candle. Those cosy nights you’ve been waiting for are right on your doorstep, so grab a good old festive wax melt, and burn away! My personal favourite is the foresty one.

4. Hot Chocolate

If you’re feeling daring, pop some cinnamon in there. You can’t get much more festive than a good old cinnamon stick. Oh, and a good old dusting of some edible glitter wouldn’t be a bad idea neither.

5. Sit down at your table, and plan your Christmas with festive music in the background.

A personal favourite is Buble… need I say more?

6. Start Wrapping Presents

There’s loads of benefits to this one, it’s a time saver, it contributes to your decorations – just pop it under your tree… and it’s a great festive activity too!

7. Put Your Tree Up

Ignore your dad, I do. This isn’t bad luck, don’t let him brain wash you!

Psst… The day this goes up, I’ll be getting my tree! So, head on over to my Instagram and watch my story of today’s adventure!
