A simple Christmas

Published On: 7th December 2021

The holidays are coming and we feel it’s the perfect time to celebrate Christmas a little more slow and simple. In this blog, we’ll give you a few tips on how to do just that:

Connect

In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it is sometimes easy to forget what the holiday season is all about: making time for the people you love. Take a moment to really think about the people around you and try to think about what you can do this year to show them that you’re thinking about them. This could be in the form of an invitation to a Christmas dinner, but a card with a heartfelt message can also mean a lot!

Support your locals

It’s always a good idea to shop from smaller businesses these days so try to look beyond the big webshops and see if you can buy your gifts from a smaller company. This way you’ll probably not only buy a more original gift, but you’ll also support your local businesses!

Stimulate the senses

One of the nice things that happen when we slow down is that we become more aware of our senses. As far as we’re concerned Christmas is a feast for the senses. We suggest taking a walk in nature and being extra aware of what you’re experiencing. How does the cold air feel on your skin? And the ground beneath your feet? What do you smell? What do you see around you? Of course Christmas dinner is also a chance to be more aware of your senses. For us, there is nothing more festive than the smell coming from the kitchen when we’re preparing a big Christmas dinner. And of course, when eating, you can also be extra aware of all the delicious things you’re tasting!

Hygge your home

And our final tip: make your home as cozy as possible. Let yourself be inspired by Hygge and fill your home with candles and Christmas lights, make your own Christmas wreath or Christmas garlands and snuggle under a blanket on the couch. And of course, don’t forget to dress up and set yourself and your guests a beautiful Christmas table.
