10 Cozy Things To Do This Holiday Season

Monday, December 14, 2020

We are currently in one of the most joyful and coziest seasons of the year. December is the month that brings so much light and magic into our life. December of 2020 shouldn't be any different. It might take a little bit more effort to make it the best it can be but that shouldn't stop us. There are so many amazing things you can do to bring a holiday spirit into your everyday life. If there is one word I would use to describe this time of the year then it would be "cozy". What we all need is that warm feeling around our hearts. Here are some activities that can help you achieve that. 



I'm sure that gingerbread houses have been popping up every time you are scrolling through Instagram. They look so fun to put together and to decorate. Those who are more advanced and know their way in the kitchen can make a gingerbread house from the start. Those who don't want to risk anything can just buy a premade gingerbread house, put it together and decorate it. This is a great way to get creative. It is also a perfect activity that will take your mind off all the things going on in your life. Making a gingerbread competition with your friends or family member could also be an interesting thing to do. 


Isn't it such a shame that most people just stopped sending Christmas cards? When was the last time you sent Christmas cards to your family and friends? There is something so special in sending and receiving Christmas cards. It has so much more meaning than just texting. You can see the effort and kindness of the person who took their time to handwrite and send the Christmas card. Why not put a smile on someone's face? Receiving Christmas cards in the time of technology and social media really holds such a deeper meaning. There are so many beautiful cards you can find in craft stores. 


Movies are great but the book has a special place in a lot of people's hearts. It is even more so with holiday and Christmas related books. Reading a Christmas book before bed is such a perfect thing to do. Books are the definition of coziness. When you pick up the right one you won't be able to put it down. So go ahead and grab a Christmas book or any book you wanted to read for a long time and dive into the new worlds. Host your own Christmas readathon and see how many books you can read in a certain amount of time. 


If there is one drink that screams cozy then it must be hot chocolate. Hot chocolate is the beverage you need to have when the day gets colder. Make sure you take advantage of it. Even just one sip will immediately warm your soul and make you feel cozy. There are a lot of premade hot chocolates you can make. Making your own hot chocolate might be even better. You can easily find recipes online and enjoy the process. Put whipped cream or marshmallows for the final touch. 


Christmas isn't the same without a classic Christmas movie marathon. I'm sure that you already have a list of your all-time favorite Christmas movies. Well now is the right time to start binge-watching them. Snuggle up, grab your hot chocolate and enjoy the Christmas magic. If you don't know where to start, I'll just say that you can't go wrong with Home Alone, The Christmas Chronicles, or Love Actually. You won't go wrong with any of these movies. Make some popcorn and enjoy your evening. 


Do it yourself project are so much fun. They are a great thing to do when you feel bored. The holiday season is heaven for crafts as there are so many great ideas out there. Christmas is the season we decorate our homes and what better thing to do than to make your own ornaments. Creating something always brings a special feeling and seeing that ornament hanging on your Christmas tree is even better. Head over to Pinterest and start crafting. 


The scent of homemade cookies spreading through the home is an absolute dream. If you didn't already start Christmas baking then now might be the right time. If there is something you can't go wrong with then that are cookies. Whatever kind of cookies you decide to make I guarantee that they will turn out amazing. Making them with your family is going to make them even more delicious. 


Holidays are all about spending quality time with your family. When was the last time you played a board game? Board games are an amazing way to actually be present while you are hanging out with your family. It is much better than scrolling through phones and being in separate rooms. But be sure to keep the right board game for your family. Every family has their own board game of choice so be sure to find the perfect one for yours and let the game begin. 


This is another cozy and enjoyable thing to do alone or with family. Most people completely forgot how great putting together puzzles can be. If it's been a few years since you last made a puzzle then now is about time to do it again. This is also a great Christmas gift idea. There are a lot of places where you can personalize the puzzle to make it even more fun to put together. 


It is most likely that we aren't going to be able to meet in person all the people we would in the past. As sad as it can be there is still something you can do with the help of technology. There are a lot of ways to video communicate with your family and friends. This is going to make you feel closer and happier this holiday season. You can even have a theme and make it even more fun.
