Eight ways to keep busy during Christmas

With household mixing now only on the big day, we’ll be looking for things to do at home for the Christmas period – so here’s some fun and festive ideas.

Faye’s picks:

Get creative in the kitchen

Test out your bake off skills just in time for The Great Christmas Bake Off and make some treats to tuck into throughout Christmas.

There’s plenty of recipes to try out here.

Challenge your family

Whether it’s with a family board game or Style and Wear’s Christmas quiz, you can have hours of fun playing games indoors.

Delve into a book

Appreciate your break as you finally get the chance to read the books you’ve been stacking this year.

Watch a Christmas movie

There’s no better way to get into the Christmas spirit (apart from singing it loud for all to hear, obviously).

If you’ve got Netflix, Candice has the low-down on all the festive favourites here.

Candice’s picks:

Go for a winter walk

Getting snuggled up in your winter gear and going for a walk with your household can be a great bonding experience – don’t forget your gloves.

Listen to a podcast

There are thousands of podcast out there to listen to so whether it’s fashion, beauty, sport or true crime stories there is something for everyone.

Video chat with friends and/or family

Some of us haven’t seen our families and friends in months, and beings separated this time of year is awful. So, why not pick up the phone and give them a call to let them know you’re thinking of them.

Get creative with arts & crafts

With so much festive cheer around, why not spread a little more by making your own Christmas decorations and displaying them around the house (or giving them as gifts!).
