5 TIPS

For getting into the Christmas spirit

By now, there should be a good chance that you have cozied all up and have gotten in to the Christmas spirit. If you find it difficult to embrace the season of candle lights and chocolates – we give you 5 tips that most likely will help you get there.

Get creative, share great moments with friends and family and experience a touch of childhood. Take a look and try for yourself!

TIP 1

MAKE A CHRISTMAS WREATH

Making a Christmas wreath can be very fun - and a great occasion to gather family and friends.

Start by taking a trip to the nearest forest (or green spot for those living in the cities) and gather fir, moss and pinecones. Whatever you like for your wreath.

Depending on the look you are going for – natural or festive – add bows, glitter and a bit of scent by either adding orange slices or cinnamon sticks. The scents of Christmas!

TIP 2

BAKE COOKIES

Baking cookies might be the most essential ingredient when getting into the Christmas spirit.

Not a great baker? Fear not! These days you can get every kind of ready-to-use dough. And who would blame you for not making everything from scratch? We are busy people!

Add a personal touch with different toppings like pistachios, roasted hazelnuts, chocolate - or just what you like!

TIP 3

SHARE A MOMENT WITH SOMEONE YOU LOVE

Teaming up with someone special during this season is one of the best ‘weapons’ for getting into the spirit.

Take a walk with your best friend, mother or significant other - share a hot drink and your best Christmas memories.

Don’t hold back if it snows – that might just set the mood right!

TIP 4

DIY PRESENTS

Do-it-yourself is not for everybody - but for some, it can be both fun and challenging.

First challenge is finding out what to make and for whom. Try browsing Pinterest and you’re guaranteed 1 million DIY projects that could be cool to do as Christmas presents.

Perhaps knitting a new pair of mittens for your dad or making new coasters for your sister. Everything is possible – it only depends on time, budget and patience.

TIP 5

MAKE A SNOWMAN

Well - this is only possible if you actually live in a place with snow...(which we’re not even guaranteed in Denmark).

If you are lucky enough to experience a day of snow, try winter-suiting in lots of sweaters, scarves and water resistant outerwear and go back in childhood-mode for a time.

Making the perfect snowman with carrot nose and comb moustache can be lots of fun and a great way to spend time with family and friends.
