It’s the simple things in life that are sometimes the best – having a hot bubble bath, curling up with a good book, watching a good film, making your favourite meal, listening to music or simply taking the dog for a walk.
Simple’s good. And the good news is, it can be applied to Christmas too!
Scrap the glitz and the glamour, the frantic present shopping, meal organising and cooking, in favour for a more serene and slowed down version of Christmas. One in which you actually get to breathe in and experience every magical moment, and don’t get overwhelmed by what’s got be crossed off your list next.
Like the sound of having more of a simple Christmas? Here are some Christmas ideas to make the festive season more of a straightforward, but equally enjoyable, affair.
- Plan your time wisely
- Enjoy the simple things
- Give simple DIY gifts
What are some good DIY Christmas gifts?
Pamper hampers aren’t the only DIY gifts you can give at Christmas. There are many more presents, just like this, you can give. They include:
- Beauty gift sets
- Christmas chocolates
- Essential oil candles, serums and more
- Face masks
- Natural deodorant
- Bath bombs
- Body scrubs
- Make use of what you have
- Schedule in some valuable downtime
We alluded to this point at the start. And just because it happens to be towards the end of the ideas list, doesn’t mean it’s any less important than the points we’ve already mentioned. When you’ve got a million and one different things to think about Christmas, it can be easy to overlook the importance of giving yourself a break every once in a while.Practice mindfulness, run a hot bath, make a tasty hot choc, go for a walk without your phone, all of these things can be incredibly rewarding in both the short and the long-term. Like the idea of this? Good – this article shows you ‘How to chill out before Christmas’ – the advice can be followed right the way through the festive season and, if you’re being really good to yourself, all-year round too.
On that note, we hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and remember, simply does it.Shop Christmas
