Festive Plans

Hi my lovelies, today I am going to be talking about all the Festive plans I have or things I want to do. I have really been feeling the Christmas spirit this year. I have no idea why, but I am embracing all things Christmas!

Firstly, I wanted to mention that I really enjoyed reading Gillian’s Christmas Bucket List  so please do go and check that out! Gillian’s post inspired me to think about what I what to achieve or do within this month!

There are a lot of things that I would love to be able to do but unfortunately I have been so busy lately so they will have to wait until next year! But let’s get into it…

  • Christmas themed afternoon tea

I mean I don’t even know if this is a thing? I love tea and I just think it would be so cute to see all the pretty lights whilst drinking a cup of tea.

  • Visit LOTS of Christmas markets
  • Try different hot chocolates 

I love hot chocolates especially around this time of year, so I want to experiment and try some different ones.

  • Watch Christmas movies

I kind of have started this one, but I think there is nothing better than snuggling down and watching Christmas movies. They just put me in the best mood and nothings beats it really.

  • Visit different places during December

By this I mean I would love to make the most and see different areas; in the UK, in Europe or around the world. I just want to make the most and really explore Christmas everywhere.

  • Write festive content 
  • Go Ice-Skating
  • Have a Christmas date night 

I would like for me and Ryan to have a cute dinner and then get home and open our presents together. Just for it to be a cute Christmassy themed date night.

  • Do some Christmas themed baking

Last year I made some chocolate orange cupcakes, and it was just so much fun! I definitely want to try this again this year either with the same idea or something else.

  • Host a Christmas evening

love hosting. I mean the decoration and cooking and just looking after people I am all for. Plus at Christmas time it is just extra special.

  • Run a Santa run

I missed it this year as I was busy but I would love to do it next year!

  • Buy some festive Lush products
  • Support Local businesses
  • Go on Winter walks to see the lights

Myself and Ryan love to do this every year. Just seeing everyone’s decorations and how the streets are lit up, I don’t think life can get any better. It is just absolutely stunning. Plus I love seeing how people decorate.

  • Have many cosy evenings 
  • Donate to charity/volunteer during the festive period
  • Make a Christmas playlist and listen to it as much as possible

That is some festive things I hope to do or would love to do during December!

What are some things you would love to do during December?

Thanks for reading!

  1. This was a nice list! I would love to look into some more local businesses to get gifts from too, and of course I need to stop into Lush and check out their holiday items. I normally volunteer weekly, but unfortunately I had to reduce my volunteer hours this month because of school/work. 🙁 I was a little disappointed because the holidays are a good time to volunteer, but I guess I give my time the rest of the year. I definitely need to get into holiday baking too! Those chocolate orange cupcakes look delicious!

  2. Oh my what a fabulous festive read! I know the feeling I’ve lots of festive things I want to do but know with work I’ll not be able to. I started watching Christmas films mid November as I know this month I’ll not have as much time. Your post made me feel festive just reading it and them chocolate orange cupcakes look insane!!!! XX
