Survived the work Christmas party - tick.
Aced the Christmas shopping - tick.
Overindulged at Christmas dinner - tick.
Now you’ve successfully completed every yuletide tradition, what are your plans for the rest of the year?
If the scrum of the sales and drizzly days aren’t tempting you outside, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the time between Christmas and New Year indoors.
Whether you want to make more space, restyle your rooms, catch up on culture or simply shut off, our blog this week is packed with ideas for fabulous festive fun without ever leaving the house.
After all the excitement of Christmas Day, now is a great time of year to treat your home to a cleansing clearout. Instead of squeezing more into straining cupboards and hoarding things you never use, how about creating the space to savour the things you really love?
Charity shops thrive on relieving you of the things you don’t want, so there’s no need to feel guilty about giving things away.
Whether you’re decorating to sell or simply updating a room or two, why not get inspired by 2023’s interior style trends? We’ll do a full deep-dive in our dedicated January article, but here are some key looks for next year to give you a head start.
Nothing beats eBay and Gumtree for sustainability, so if you’re looking to change up your furniture, nab a stylish bargain as people make space for their new acquisitions from the January sales. What’s more, you can do it all from the comfort of the couch.
Pick up any newspaper or magazine this month, and you’re bound to come across a Best Of 2022 list. Keeping up with it all can be a challenge in the course of a working week, but with a longer break, why not discover some of what you missed?
With some wise picks and commitment to the task, you’ll be the go-to cultural guru when everyone returns to work. More than that, you’ll have the best small talk for the coffee machine or Zoom!
Is there anything you’ve wanted to try for as long as you can remember? We’ve all got something, and our regular weekly routines can relegate personal passions to second place. But can you think of a better time of year to make a fresh start?
Having a passion adds spice to life and is food for the soul. Whatever you choose, always remember the most important thing: you don’t have to be perfect to enjoy it.
Sometimes, getting back to basics is just what we need, and the festive break can provide some valuable extra time to rediscover the simple things in life
Alternatively, and if you want to be a true revolutionary, instead of filling every moment of the festive break, how about finding the time to do nothing at all? Treat yourself to turning the phone off, having a long lie-in, or daydreaming on the couch - you deserve it!
