The festive holidays are upon us and we all find ourselves reverting back to our childhood memories of putting up the first Christmas decorations, roasting chestnuts and eagerly anticipating the ever-growing sight of presents under the tree.
Transitioning your home to fit into the new season is one way of inspiring everyone to get into the holiday spirit. From funny jumpers, sitting around a crackling fire with a hot chocolate or simply lighting a candle, make sure you take the time, this festive period, to enjoy every precious moment of it.
#1 – The Power of Food Memories
Food memories are incredibly rich and full of layers which, if tapped into, can unlock a wealth of sensory delights. Whether you’re indulging in a Sunday roast, an apple crumble or an indulgent chocolate brownie Lakeland have all your baking necessities that friends and family will remember your Christmas party by for years to come.
#2 – Cosy Up This Winter
Take your pick of autumn reads this season and cosy up on the sofa with a glass of mulled wine or a cup of hot chocolate. H&M’s homeware range is the perfect place to start when shopping for autumnal inspired pieces for your home, from printed table runners, cushions, throws and more.
#3 – The Ultimate Winters Day Drink
Discover the wellbeing benefits of Chai this festive season with Whittard’s Christmas Chai. Cherished in India, this powerful blend of teas, herbs and spices is known to preserve good health and instil peace of mind. Brew yourself a cup and then spice it up with your own selection of spices such as clove, cinnamon and ginger.
#4 – It’s Beginning To Smell A Lot Like Christmas
Olfaction – also known as ‘sense of smell’ – is the most mysterious of senses we have and what better feeling is there than cosying up on the sofa, with a freshly baked chocolate brownie, a cup of hot chocolate and the warming smell of gingerbread, cinnamon and even pine in the air? Visit Clintons during your lunch break and browse their inspiring Yankee Candle range.
