Getting Ready for Christmas with Midz Plastic Free
Christmas is just around the corner and the countdown is officially on. We only have 4 weekends left until Christmas day and I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait. Christmas is such a magical time of year, full of family time, traditions and magic and this year I want to make the most of the holidays spending as much time with my own family celebrating. 2020 has been a year full of unprecedented events but I truly believe that this last month of the year will help to bring everyone together through such difficult times with the magic of Christmas to look forward to. Today I want to give you some top tips for preparing for the festive times ahead, let’s all join together and make this Christmas one to remember.
Present Planning: Giving and receiving is a huge part of Christmas and one in which can be extremely rewarding when you see the children’s reactions early Christmas morning. I would suggest that you start off with a budget, this will help you to plan each present and how much you are going to spend. From here you can then begin to shop around, but I would strongly advise that you stick to the budgets which you have in mind. I work best when following a list, I like to sit down and put together a list of all of the presents which I am getting for everyone.
This way you can keep track of the presents you need to buy and the ones which you have already got out of the way. If you are currently looking for the perfect present for your loved ones, we have a large range of eco friendly gifts for sale. Take this opportunity to browse our products and help support small business this Christmas.
Christmas Baking: Christmas time is all about overindulging in as much food as possible. Everyone comes together and bakes for Britain when it comes to preparing the food throughout the festive period. A huge tradition which is still installed into many people’s annual traditions is to bake the Christmas cake at the beginning of November. This will allow the cake to have plenty of time to mature, making the perfect cake for Christmas day.
Christmas Cards: Sending Christmas cards to your nearest and dearest has been a tradition which has lasted over many years of family traditions. Unfortunately, this is starting to die down now many people aren’t sending out festive cards. If you are someone who likes to sit down and write all of your Christmas cards, I would suggest that you spread this out and do as and when you have the time. A great way to help make a difference to our planet is to buy environmentally friendly cards such as recycled cards. Support small business and shop local this year, small businesses need your help now more than ever before.
Declutter Your Home: A great way to get ready before you turn your home into Santa’s grotto is to declutter as and when you can. I tend to go through the children’s toys and chuck out all of their old things which they no longer play with. This is a great way to make room for the influx of toys from Father Christmas and friends and family. I would suggest you do this before you put up the decorations, giving you space to work with whilst tackling your winter clean.
Although there are many things which need to be put in place before Christmas day, I want to remind you to be sure to take in every magical moment and enjoy the time off you have with your family. We have a wide range of eco friendly gifts for sale, perfect for your loved ones this year. Here at Midz Plastic Free, we want to wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
