8 Things I Love About Christmas

Hello again,

Seeing as it’s the festive season, I thought I’d share with you the things that I love the most about Christmas.

Wrapping Christmas presents

When it comes to Christmas I don’t think there’s much more that’s as satisfying as wrapping up gifts and giving them to those close to you. I love spending time picking out presents for people I love.IMG_0312.JPG

Writing Christmas cards

I used to love being in primary school where I’d ask my teacher for a class list of everyone’s names so I could write out all of my Christmas cards. I still haven’t grown out of this because I love sending Christmas wishes in the form of glittery cards.IMG_0318.JPG

Putting up Christmas decorations

Despite having to carry all of our Christmas decorations down from the attic, hanging baubles on the Christmas tree is one of my favourite things to do. It’s the perfect opportunity to spend time with family and make your house look merry.IMG_0303.JPG

Late night shopping

Discounts. Christmas lights. Food stalls. What more could you ask for in a shopping trip? There’s something more enticing about shopping at night…

Costa Christmas

I love the Costa Christmas range and the festive cups that they’ve arrived in!y favourite drink is the chocolate brownie hot chocolate, with Belgian chocolate chunks coated in whipped cream on top. It’s so yummy! Also, if you say “Costa Christmas” at the till between the hours of 2pm and 5pm then your can buy a small Christmas drink for just Β£2, making the range more affordable. Wrapping your icy fingers around a hot mug is definitely a cosy Christmas feeling.

Cheesy festive accessories

This is my Christmas hat! I was torn between this one and a Christmas pudding one. It’s so warm; it keeps my ears nice and toasty! Me and my boyfriend also have a matching pack of Christmas socks.IMG_0317.JPG

Opening doors on my Advent calendar

This is the moment you finally know that Christmas is year! The beginning of December marks the moment where the festivities well and truly come into action. This year my mum bought me a Thornton’s advent calendar; their chocolate is so creamy. Mmmmmmm.IMG_0328.JPG

Listening to Christmas songs

This is one of my favourite music albums! Michael BublΓ© has one of the dreamiest, most calming voices. There’s little I love more than getting ready each morning whilst listening to him. Despite this, my favourite Christmas song of all time has to be Fairytale of New York; it’s perfect!IMG_0319.JPG

  1. I absolutely love the Buble Christmas album too. We don’t have decorations, I wait til I go back to my parents house as it would cost too much to get set up here and I don’t know how long we’ll stay. I can’t wait to start shopping, wrapping and writing cards on the 19th!
