Posted: December 7, 2018 8:40 am


Tis the season once again! Is your home decorated for the Holidays? If not, we’ve got some ideas to help you get started.

1. Stockings
If you have children, you know having stockings on the chimney or hanging on the wall is part of the Christmas tradition. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t change it up a little this year. Whether you are single or have children, you can upgrade your stockings with new ones. Having a new stocking with your name on it can put a smile on your face this Christmas!

2. Christmas Ornaments
We all love decorating the Christmas tree with beautiful ornaments. Make your own Christmas ornaments this year to add as a keepsake. We always put up those ornaments that mean something special to us, so make a Christmas ornament that will make you remember this year.

3. Pine Candles
If you love the real pine tree smell, but only have a fake tree this Christmas, pine candles are the next best thing. Not many are able to have real pine trees in their homes so pine candles can add the same scent of pine trees.

4. Christmas Music
Who doesn’t love Christmas music? From old classics to new tunes, all of those songs can get any person into the Christmas spirit. There’s something about Christmas music speaking to the soul throughout the holiday season. It gets you into the spirit by thinking of others instead of focusing on what gifts you will receive this year.

5. Mistletoe
Do you have someone special in your life to share this Christmas season with? Create happy memories with mistletoe kisses this year! You never know if they’ll end up being your significant other next Christmas season!

6. Christmas cookies
From chocolate chip cookies to sugar cookies, we all want to sit by the fireplace or kitchen table with some sugary sweets filling our belly.

Why stop there? Decorate some sugar cookies with some unique characters like Rudolph or Santa Clause. They are great for the kids to give to Santa this year! They will love being able to help make Santa happy with goodies to fill up his belly.

7. Wreaths
You can buy a beautiful wreath at a Christmas store or you can make one yourself. Experiment with your own Christmas wreath with some pine or Christmas ball ornaments. Add some white snow spray to imitate snow on your new Christmas wreath.

8. Sparkling snowflakes
Have you ever seen those beautiful snowflakes all around stores? Buy some glittered snowflakes to sparkle your house with some light this Christmas. They will create a path of glitter throughout your home.

9. Christmas lights
Christmas lights are always amongst one of the most spectacular things we see. They create a magical atmosphere inside and outside of your home. The stories told with simple Christmas lights can take one’s breaths away. So, don’t give up on this year’s Christmas lights decorations.

10. Eggnog
Eggnog is known for having some alcohol substance in it, but there’s no law saying you can’t spice things up this Holiday Season with non-alcoholic eggnog. There’s always the option of vanilla spice eggnog for those who have a sweet tooth. It’s a sweet treat that you and your family can enjoy together.
