There may be no Santa sightings at the mall or in-person Nutcracker performances on your calendar this year, but there are still plenty of ways to keep your spirits bright!
While buying others gifts, don’t forget to gift yourself something, too. Popular haircare brand, Briogeo, released a Scalp Revival Therapy Kit that will help solve any of your hair-related woes. Or maybe you can finally splurge on Winc’s monthly wine subscription you’ve been eyeing. Whatever self-care means to you, make sure to leave ample time in the day for you.
Keep traditions alive
Even if you won’t be gathering around a table baking cookies or gingerbread houses with loved ones, move these events to a virtual setting to keep traditions going! Schedule family events like you normally would, and dress up, play music, and light festive candles, too.
Create a festive atmosphere
Take your decorating up a notch this year: by setting up a hot chocolate station in your kitchen, swapping out current wall art for holiday-themed pieces, and dressing countertops and mantles with bows, greenery, and mini ornaments.
Try new recipes
It’s always a good time of year to switch out the old for the new. Instead of sweet potato pie, try this gluten-free version. These healthy holiday cookies will make for a fun baking day, and you can’t go wrong with a healthier take on eggnog!
Shop ‘til you drop
For many people, shopping is a marker of the holiday season. If you’re going to shop in person, just make sure you have a game plan. And don’t forget, you can score the same deals and cross everyone off your gift-buying list by shopping online.
