2. Bake Something
Yes, of course holidays are time to relax, eat and drink well. But we can’t afford to loose the satisfaction of chocolates and sweets.
You have to cook something for your friends and guests, I think baking things would be a easy and fun. Baked cookies, pie, cakes and candy wow….. Take an idea for old-traditional treats and you might surprise by them. Delight your dinner and house members this festive season.
3. Do some social work
Make little time and do something special for needy people as an extra help. Go orphanage or find old aged peoples in your neighbourhood and ask them what they need? Although you can buy some clothes and food for them. In our country you’ll find many local foodbanks, donate food to them. If you can make someone else happy, nothing could be better than this.
4. Go on nature walks
Even december is cold weather month, try to go outside with your kids as much as you can, take your dog or cat for a walk in near by gardens for some fun. You can also sit on a quiet place where you can spend time, think about to have some icefishing, bird hunting, may be you’ll learn to shoot and hunting. If you love to go for Hayride or a sleigh ride with whole family, it could be a enjoy Christmas day.
5. Home-made gifts for Christmas
Isn’t it’s a great time to gift home-crafted gifts to your family members. This year spend some extra time in making something original for them so that they would enjoy. Create some handmade ornaments for Christmas tree, sew pillow covers, afghan, crochet a scraf, customize cards and much depends upon how much time you have. Most people like me love handmade gifts….!
6. Just Relax
Festival days are like hectic, but no matter how busy you’re, set time aside just to relax. We can go for a weekend massage, or a yoga session at nearest health club. Many of the health centers and gym offers memberships for a year to newbies.
Check out body spa and hair spa offers for great discounts.
7. Invite family members
What could be better than making the holidays traditional by gathering your entire family members together. Try to call some members you have not meet them from years. You have to start making plans early for your dinner or lunch, Christmas celebration is nothing without family members.
