If this sounds like you, but you really want to feel festive, then we have some great tips on how you can start to feel that Christmas spirit right away.

Christmas Music


If anything is going to get you in the mood for Christmas, its music. Songs are uplifting and can instantly give you the festive feeling. Spotify have a wonderful range of Christmas playlists from the classics to jazz and piano. The classics will get you into the spirit in no time.

Festive Films


Make a warm drink, bring down some blankets, get cosy and watch a festive film. The more you watch the merrier you will feel! Netflix have their own original movies which are cheesy but brilliant and they also have classics such as ‘Miracle on 34th Street’.

Put up the Decorations


It’s difficult to feel festive if your home is void of any Christmas décor. Putting up the tree is great fun and can definitely give you the Christmas feeling. Add more to your home with garlands, bunting, tinsel!

Go to Christmas Events


Venture out to Christmas events with family and friends. There are Christmas Markets all over the country which are full of festive shops, food and drink. Other events include light shows and local get-togethers.
