Make the Holiday Gifts Fun
The first thing that comes into mind when someone talks about a holiday is the gifts, right? Well, this year, make sure that you are adding a twist to the holiday gifts. It means that you need to pick your friends and prank them with your gifts. Believe me when I say that they are going to love it, and it’ll give them a memory to laugh about every holiday season. So, take some time and search for the pranks you can play with them. For example, make them play an online jigsaw puzzle as a clue to where their gift is.
Forget Takeout – Bring Your Inner Chef Out
When it comes to food, the holiday season is all about loading up on your favorite carbs, right? If you are one of those people who love this time of the year because of all the amazing food that you are going to eat, then you need to try to do something different this year. It means that you need to bring out your inner chef and give a try to your favorite dishes. It’ll help you in eating healthy and staying fit. This way, you don’t have to worry about getting fat as you’ll have control over your food. So, what are you waiting for? Fill your pantry with the ingredients of your favorite dishes and get cooking.
Decorate Your Home But with a Twist
One can simply imagine the holiday season without holiday decorations, right? But let’s just admit that we are all bored with the conventional holiday decorations. Therefore, this year you need to bring some creativity to the table when it comes to holiday decorations. It means that you need to DIY your holiday decorations instead of buying it from the store. Not only is it going to save you a lot of money, but you’ll also have fun while doing it with your friends and family.
Add Drinking Games to the Menu
Drinking games are always fun, but for some reason, I haven’t seen people doing it much on the holidays. If you are one of those people who have never tried drinking games with your friends during the holiday season, then you’ve got to try it this year. It is a perfect time of the year to play such games because you don’t have to worry about a hangover since you don’t have to go to work tomorrow. So, plan some exciting and fun drinking games with your friends and make sure that everyone joins and shares the fun with you.
How About a Movie Marathon?
Watching Christmas movies on holidays has become a little cliché, and let’s just admit that no one enjoys them. Therefore, you need to watch the movie that you actually like. One fun way to do it is to pick your favorite movie series that all your friends like and make sure that you arrange a cozy set up to enjoy the movie marathon with your friends. It is much better than just watching the same old Christmas movies that you are forced to enjoy. Pick something that actually makes you and your family happy.
Knit Your Holiday Sweater
Hear me out, what if you knit your own holiday sweater this year? You heard me right. If you think that it is too difficult of a thing to do, then you are wrong at so many levels. All you have to do is to watch some tutorials on Youtube, and you’ll be all set to knit your own sweater for the holiday season. It is not only going to pass your holiday time really well, but you’ll also have something to flex in front of your friends and family. If you think that knitting a sweater is too much of an effort, then go for something simple like a muffler and cap. If you have a good time, then it is your clue that you are all set to make your own sweater next year.
Make Family Dinners Fun – Plan Family Games
Family dinners are something that we all wait for the entire year because of the amazing food. However, more often than not, it can be pretty awkward and difficult. But, don’t worry if that’s the case because I’ve got you covered. If you have a shred of doubt that things are going to be awkward at the dinner table, then have a backup plan. It means that you have to plan some exciting family games so that nothing takes an awkward turn and everyone has a great time.
Don’t Forget to Arrange a Barbeque Kinda Night
Lastly, there is nothing better than a bonfire on a chilling and snowy night. So, make sure that you’ve arranged everything that you need to have an amazing barbeque and bonfire night. It is going to be an amazing and fun experience if you are doing it with the right kind of company, and you’ll have the memories that you are going to cherish for the rest of your lives.
