Christmas is a wonderful time of the year to celebrate and get together with family and friends. It's not only about getting the big things right such as presents and Christmas dinner; it's also about the little final touches that make the perfect Christmas. In this article, we look at some Christmas final touches you can add to your celebration.
Festive bathroom touches
You can make every room in your home feel festive, even the bathroom. To add that Christmas finishing touch, swap out your regular hand towel for a festive alternative. You can also purchase festive toilet paper and even a festive soap dispenser for your bathroom. Your guests will be delighted to see the festive spirit running through your whole home.
Festive bed covers
Festive bed covers are great for adults and children; they can also help excited children to go to bed on time during the festive period. Switch your regular bed covers for ones with a more festive feel to bring Christmas into every room of your home.
The family dog
Don’t leave out your dog at Christmas time; get them a cute little Santa outfit or elves outfit to make all of your family and guests smile. Dogs love to join in the fun of Christmas, too, so make sure they have some wrapped presents to open on Christmas morning with the rest of the family. New toys and bones will also help to keep your dog busy and happy whilst you eat Christmas dinner and entertain your guests.
Christmas eve boxes
Christmas eve boxes are a great way to get children to settle their excitement about Christmas. They also provide fun activities and things for children to entertain themselves with on Christmas eve whilst you’re busy making last-minute preparations for the following day. You can add games, pyjamas and snacks to the Christmas eve boxes to start Christmas off with a bit of fun and comfort. Personalised Christmas eve boxes start the celebrations early and can be used each year for your children.
Christmas hampers are not only great as gifts, but they can add that final finishing touch to your Christmas Day celebrations. Christmas hampers can come filled with many different wonderful and luxurious items. You might find luxurious chocolates, biscuits or cookies you can eat and add to your festive feast. Opening one together as a family on Christmas Day is a great treat for everyone. There are Christmas hampers for every taste and preference; you just need to find the right one for your family.
Christmas games or puzzles
After getting up early in the morning to open presents and eating a large Christmas dinner, Christmas Day can feel like a very long day. You could plan some Christmas games or puzzles to keep your guests entertained and busy after dinner. A jigsaw puzzle is suitable for all of the family to participate in casually. If you want something more interactive, you could play Christmas Monopoly or a Christmas-based quiz game that's suitable for everyone in your family.
Catering for all needs
One extra touch that won't go unnoticed by your guests is your ability to cater for everyone’s needs. Perhaps you have a vegan guest or an elderly guest that struggles to hold a regular glass. Catering for their needs will make them feel comfortable on the day, and it can make their Christmas even better. There’s nothing worse than not being able to participate because of your particular needs. As a host, you’ll also want to ensure everyone is having the best time possible. Always ask your guests if they have any dietary restrictions or special needs that you need to be aware of; this way, you can prepare in advance and won’t need to figure something out at the last minute.
Christmas is a wonderful and joyful time; preparation is key to ensuring you have a great experience. Preparing the basics early will give you extra time to think about those finishing touches that can make the day extra special. Visit the shops and look out for fun ideas to bring the festive spirit into every area of your home. You can also add festive touches to your drive and garden.
