While it’s only the beginning of December, the holidays are rapidly approaching and the stress is already building up. We can’t alleviate all your Yuletide worries, but we can help you get ready for the season. From gifting to decorating, sometimes all you need is a little guidance. That’s what we’re here to do! Just call us Santa’s little helpers and check out our tips on how to prep for the holidays!
Deck the Halls
The key to any holiday prep is decorations. Starting small is the best way to ensure that you don’t get your tinsel in a tangle. You’d be surprised how much a little lights and ornaments can really brighten up a space, so add some stockings and a tree if you can. If you are limited on space, a classic wreath or miniature Christmas tree add just the amount cheer without going overboard.
Make the List
Nothing makes the holiday season more stressful than not knowing what you’re buying, where you’re going, or what needs to be done. That’s why making a list is one of the most important tips for holiday prep. Not only do lists help you stay organized, but they also keep you on budget. The big guy might just be onto something now that we think about it. Take a few minutes and write yourself some to-do lists, check them twice, and we promise that you’ll feel more refreshed!
Clear the Clutter
Whether you are making room for more people or more gifts, now is the perfect time to clear out all the clutter in your home. Make boxes to donate and to throw out; then go room by room clearing out all the stuff you’ve been collecting. There is nothing fun about stepping over piles of stuff all holiday season long or not knowing where anything is. Plus, donating quality clothing and products could make someone else’s holiday even more special!
Shop In Advance
The holidays might not be all about shopping, but it certainly plays a big part. That’s why the best way to get prepped for Christmas and save yourself from unnecessary stress is to get all of your gifts in advance. Luckily with the internet, you don’t even have to leave your home to do so. If you want to send beautiful, unique gifts this year, send Christmas flowers that can be enjoyed for many days at a time. From centerpieces to festive cubes, we have the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Order in advance and then sit back and have our local florists hand-arrange and hand-deliver your bouquet.
