Festive and Wonderful Things to Get You in the Holiday Spirit
Hey Dolls! It’s quite the festive season ahead of us and before you know it, you blink and it’s done. *inserts the saddest cutest sad face ever* As part of my Blogmas uploads I thought I’d help you get in the mood for the most wonderful time of the year with a list of 10 things to get you in the holiday spirit. With things approaching quickly and everyone getting busy sometimes we forget to enjoy this time and reflect on all our reasons to be truly grateful. Don’t forget to be kind to yourself and take a moment to remember why you love Christmas while you’re being quite the busy bee.
*Drum Roll* Here are some of the best ways to get that Christmas feel:
1. Create a Christmas Playlist

So you’re surfing YouTube looking for things to do or randomly binging videos, why not create an oh so wonderful Christmas playlist to brighten up your day. You can gradually add songs you love to the playlist to keep it fresh and fun. I can guarantee you that a Christmas playlist maybe just what you need while your working or studying or simply need something to keep your company during your busy hours. Here’s a Christmas playlist I created to help get you in the mood!
2. Go see your Local Santa
This is the perfect time to go see your Santa at the mall! They’ll be presents, (even if it’s just an empty box wrapped perfectly nice) lots of kids and holiday cheer. Go on, get out of your house and do something fun to lift your mood…you can even pass after work or go during the weekends. Have fun!
3. Bake Some Christmas Treats
Nothing reminds you that it’s the holidays like some good ole Christmas cookies, mince pies, apple strudel or any other festive treat. When you get some time do an easy to follow recipe of your favorite treat.
4. Start to Decorate
Sometimes it takes a little visual to get you pumped about something. Create some Christmas joy by decorating your personal space, whether it’s your loft, bedroom, dorm room or office cubicle. Make it comfy and ready for this season’s festivities. I already added a cute Christmas Advent calendar to my cubicle, feel free to comment and share you decorative ideas.
5. Paint Your Nails

The holiday is here and its time to get those nails festive! I love to see nails around this time of year cause people can get pretty creative in their designs. It’s totally a cute way to get some in the holiday spirit and if you need some help checkout Creative Nails. They’re simple DIY creations.
6. Go and See Christmas Lights
I think one of my favorite things about Christmas is seeing all of the pretty lights on display. This literally screams festiveness! Go and take a drive around or walk and admire all of the pretty lights in your neighborhood and see all the awesome ideas people come up with.
7. Donate and Spread some Cheer and Love
‘Tis the season to be merry! Though I try to encourage kindness and charity all year round, Christmas is the perfect time to spread some love and help those in need. This Christmas season I am cleaning out my closet and donating all the clothes I don’t want to charity. They’re all in good condition so I hope it makes a child smile.
8. Have A Christmas Movie Marathon
There are so many great Christmas movies out there why not call up a pal and binge movies over the weekend. Even better, grab some hot coco, your favorite blanket and lay in bed watching all you holiday favorites. You can always check out Netflix, Lifetime or Hallmark.
9. Do a Christmas Card Swap
As this is my very first Blogmas I am delighted to be doing a Christmas card swap with some very lovely bloggers I met over the past few weeks. I think it’s a fun way to kick start the holiday period. You can exchange with anyone you please and have fun making the cards or buy if you can’t find the time. Later I will share a post on my cards I made.
10. Wear Something Festive
Time to take out all those festive sweaters and jammies and maybe even a few shirts and ties! What a great season to wear some ridiculous clothes that are all Christmas oriented. I love to see them and I think they can put a smile on your face!
Well dolls, these are just a things to get you in the holiday spirit that I think will spread some joy and cheer. Have fun this season and comment or hit me up and let me know what you do to get in the Christmas mood.
