The family home at Christmas

  • by

The most wonderful time of year is here again. It’s colder and darker but an awful lot cosier! Here are some top tips to immerse yourself in the Christmas spirit and prepare your home for the festive season.

  • Cleaning and clearing
    Decluttering is one of the most effective ways to make your home feel more spacious and relaxing, ready for the big day, and it’s free. Clear the nooks and wipe the surfaces before you start decorating and you’re bound to feel better. It’s also an excellent time to buy any larger items of furniture you might need to accommodate your Christmas guests.
  • Get cosy
    There is a particular joy of a crackling fire to keep Jack Frost from your toes, so stock up on snuggly blankets ready to hide beneath. Coming home from a brisk winter walk to warmth and cosiness and a cheeky hot chocolate is hard to beat.
  • The smells of Christmas
    No Christmas is complete without festive aromas floating through your home. Whether you like mulled spice candles or the scent of gingerbread baking in the oven, it all adds to the merry-making.
  • Being together
    Most notably, Christmas is a time of togetherness, taking time out of busy schedules to be with the people we love. At Christmas, the family home should be full of laughter and love, full of games, and watching festive films with a box of biscuits.

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas! May it be everything you wished and more.
