Brr..it’s starting to get a little chilly outside, the sweaters are being pulled out of hibernation, and party invites are being passed around. That can only mean one thing- The holiday season is here!
It’s time to have ourselves a merry little Christmas, and end the year with a bang! (and maybe a lucky peck under the mistletoe)
Although the holiday season is around the corner and we’re all supposed to feel merry and bright, we’ll admit that the past year has been a tough one, and it may be hard for some of us to experience the magic of Christmas 2021.
Here are some tried and tested ways to find that inner holiday cheer and let it shine through, because after a long year, you deserve to have some fun!
1. A Christmas Spirit To Lift Your Spirits!
The fastest and most delicious route to getting the party started is to concoct a divine Christmas cocktail- and here’s one that looks the part.
A rendition of the classic mojito, but with gin, this light-green cocktail is sweet, refreshing, and vegan! Ridiculously easy to make, all you need is Gin, Lime juice, Mint, Simple syrup or Maple syrup. You can find the detailed recipe here
2. Deck The Halls
Make your space into a winter wonderland to immediately feel christmassy. Even if you don’t want to go all out, a little tinsel on the tree, some fairy lights, and our Cinnamon Spiced candle
will set the scene! And if you’re feeling fancy, take a look at some of these ornaments
crafted by local artisans that will spruce up the house, help minimize waste, and support rural artists.
3. Holiday Movie Marathon
Cozying up in front of the television with friends and family is a great way to kick back and make special memories this holiday season. Here’s our selection of Christmas movies (new and old) to have loaded and ready to go.
-Home Alone- A family favourite!
-The Holiday- For some holiday romance
-How the Grinch Stole Christmas- Christmas wrapped up with comedy relief
-It's A Wonderful Life- A vintage pick for that warm and fuzzy feeling
4. A Night Out (Or In)
What’s the holiday season without it’s endless parties? We’re not complaining! Put on your sparkliest outfit, paired with jewels like our___ and____ (will add after shoot) and hit the dance floor.
If the club scene is not for you, a house party or dinner with your nearest and dearest might just be. Share laughs and stories over delicious food and drink and you'll be feeling merry and bright in no time.
Invited to a Christmas potluck dinner? Here’s a wildly simple Christmas cookie recipe
that will end the night on a sweet note.
5. Gift And Give
A Christmas gift that’s as beautiful as the thought behind it? Our collection
of gold 18KT jewellery is oh-snow-perfect for you to mark the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new one in 2022
And while it feels good to treat ourselves and the people we know, it feels even better to give to those who are in need. We can do one better and combine them both! Shop for Christmas gifts, decor, and sweets from NGOs like Shraddha Charitable Trust,
and Om Creations Trust
So there you have it. Go forth and revel in your new-found Christmas spirit, and make sure to spread it around!
