Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. There is nothing better than enjoying the festive season with the people closest to you, and whether you are splashing the cash or on a budget – you can still create an amazing celebration this year.
Today we want to talk about celebrating the Christmas season, and some of the things you can do throughout the month of December to start preparing for the celebrations coming at the end of the month.
From a quick diet to wrapping gifts – there are lots of small things you can do starting now to make your Christmas magical.
Have A Last Minute Detox
The first thing you’ll want to do before you start planning your festivities is consider detoxing your body to make it as healthy as possible before the Christmas season. We only have 4 weeks left until Christmas day, and we all know too well that we will be indulging to the max in all of the things we don’t the rest of the year.
Because of this, hitting the reset button on your body is a great idea and it will help to prepare you for the day. Start detoxing now with simple and low fat meals, and you’ll start to feel leaner and more energised for the festive season. This will also make you feel more confident once the Christmas period arrives and this will make all the difference to you and how you feel.
Create A Budget Spreadsheet
Now is a great time to plan out your budget for Christmas. You may have already started buying small items for your Christmas celebrations, and perhaps even some presents for your family. However, now is the time to try and organise your thoughts and ensure that you don’t spend way too much.
Write down a rough budget for each recipient of gifts, as well as a budget for your food shop and any snacks and drinks you want to buy. If you are on a tight budget this will guide your thinking and help you to stay on track financially while still celebrating.
Christmas A5 & Happy Planner: Christmas Present TrackerIt's getting to the time of year when the pre-Christmas sales are starting and we're beginning to get organised for Christmas. This means sorting out what presents you're buying for everyone, where you're getting them from and tracking whether you have bought and wrapped
Rent A Tree
One great way to get ready for the Christmas season is to rent a Christmas tree. Trees are so important to our world, and there are companies who will pull a full tree out of the ground and rent it to you for the Christmas season before planting it again for future use.
This is so much better for the planet than cutting down trees and it will also mean you get to enjoy that fresh pine scent without having to chop the tree up after Christmas is over.
Deal With Any Health Issues
Health is likely the last thing you want to think about right now, however it is important that you feel your best self at Christmas and you are confident in your body. Make sure to deal with any health problems you might have outstanding now such as a Zantac Lawsuit or a flu jab and this will put your mind at ease once Christmas day rolls around.
Decorate The House
Decorating your home for a festive year is perhaps one of the most amazing parts of Christmas. There is no better feeling than creating a festive display at home, and you’ll have this amazing sense of satisfaction when you decorate your festive home.
Adding some lights, garlands, beads, and other Christmas decorations to the house will bring an instant sense of warmth and fun, and it’ll help get everyone at home into the Christmas spirit. Making a day of it with hot chocolates and festive music is such a great way to kick of Christmas the right way.

Do The Big Food Shop
There will be a time in December where you’ll prepare your trolley, bags, and list – and head off for the most important mission of all – the food shop. Make sure when you head out this year that you write down a detailed list of everything you need including quantities – because there’s nothing more annoying than falling short of an important ingredient on Christmas Day!
Ideally you’ll want to do your shop a few days before Christmas to reduce your stress levels, and in some cases you can buy things even a few weeks beforehand. Make sure you are prepared as there is nothing worse than missing out on some of your favourite foods and drinks!
