New Home This Winter? Here’s 5 Christmas Essentials You Can’t Forget
If the stress of moving has got you thinking about going cold turkey this Christmas, stop right there. With food orders and presents, relatives and reindeers, it’s no wonder you’re feeling a little overwhelmed. But worry not, as when it comes to your home we are here to help. Here are our top 5 quick and easy Christmas decorations to make your home feel fantastically festive, even amongst the busiest of moves.
There’s no reason why the outside of your home can’t be a pinnacle of Christmassy composure, even if the inside is not. A beautiful wreath won’t set you back more than £20 and is a quick and easy way to brighten up the outside of your home for the festive season (and let new neighbours you’ve moved in, too!)
2. Snow Globe
If you don’t have time to scour the shops for decorations a good, old-fashioned snow globe is the way to go. Not only do they look beautiful, they will add a traditional, festive spirit to any room in the house. Just keep them out of reach of the inquisitive hands of little ones!
Setting up a Christmas tree needn’t be the hassle you envision it to be. When you’re unpacking into your new house, the last thing you want it pine needles and debris. Why not try a faux Christmas tree for this year (we won’t tell!). Besides, nowadays, you can even get them pre-decorated with lights- check out this link for more inspiration https://bit.ly/1NpEAI3
Candles are a fail safe way to ramp up the atmosphere in any home and are a perfect addition at Christmas time. Many specialist companies such as Glaze and Yankee Candle release limited edition Christmas scents such a spiced cinnamon, cookies or cranberry. Line them on top of the mantelpiece for a cosy, cost effective way to brighten up your home.
5. DIY Decorations
Want an easy way to keep the kids busy that’s productive at the same time? Of course you do, so why not get the little ones making DIY decorations for the tree whilst you finish off the unpacking. It’s a win-win situation for all, and as the internet is full of free stencils and ideas at the touch of a button, there’s no excuse to not get the whole family creative this Christmas.
With these top tips, you’ll be ready for December 25th before you know it with you and your family settled in your brand new home. Just don’t forget your “Santa stop here” sign to let him know you’ve moved, too!
