7 Tips For Creating The Perfect Christmas

Here at the Pointy HQ the countdown to Christmas is on. With so much to organise and so many presents to buy, we thought we’d help you out a little by telling you our Christmas must haves and where you can find them – make sure you add them to your list!

1. Cracking Christmas Decor


Festive crackers are always a welcome addition to the dinner table on Christmas Day. If you’re feeling extra creative you could make your own and fill them with small gifts. An extra Christmas present? We’re sold!

2. A Festive Tipple


If you’re planning to have visitors over the holidays, you’ll need to make sure that the house is fully stocked with food and alcohol. A batch of mulled wine will go down a treat on a cold Christmas night along with some festive craft beers.

3. Smells Like Christmas


Some festive scented candles will give your house the ultimate Christmas feel. Visitors will love walking in your front door to be greeted by that unmistakable holiday smell.

4. Be Santa Ready


Posting the Christmas letter is only step one of Santa preparation. Make sure you’ve bought a Santa Stop Here sign for your front yard and some snacks for Rudolph and the gang. Kids will love helping to prepare a plate of mince pies and cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve.

5. Unleash Your Competitive Streak


Christmas is a great time for relaxing and spending time with family. A couple of fun board games can be all you need for a great night in. Beware – sibling rivalry may rise significantly!!

6. Tis The Season For Singing


Some festive tunes will put everyone in the mood for Christmas. Download a holiday playlist, turn on Christmas FM or get yourself a festive hits CD.


7. Festive Baking


Baking is a great activity to do with little ones over Christmas. Stock up on baking accessories like festive cookie cutters, cupcake cases and mince pie trays. If you’re feeling adventurous you could even make your own Christmas gingerbread house.
