Tis the season for Hot Cocoa, Snuggies, and the ultimate Netflix and Chill. Grab your Bae and enjoy these 3 cute and cozy ways to bring home the Holidays. Now, we know you have a million things that are pulling at you this Holiday Season, from in-laws, to shopping, to office parties, and more, what about a way to wind down and enjoy your home while still bringing in great Holiday Cheer! Yes, with these three small suggestions we can make the term Home for the Holidays ring even more with glee!
Game Night with Couples
So, we have it! Game night with friends and family is the best, and you can even but your signature on the night with signature cocktails, games and themes. How about an Arabian Night, An Orient Express theme, or just a plain old Slumber Party Theme decked out and ready for everyone to take the great ride on the Polar Express! With a mix of couples games such as “That’s what She Said” or “Couples Charade”, the place to be will be your living room and all done with little worry or stress.
Reading time with Bae
Now, for couples only… that need to wind down from ALL the parties and just want to enjoy each other, Netflix and Chill may still be too much media. You may want to opt for a good book that you can read together that sparks intellectual, spiritual, or romantic conversation. One book that comes to mind is “The American Marriage” by Tayari Jones. A book the tests the bounds of marriage, friendship and fidelity, all while keeping a humanistic twist on all characters. This book and many more will be a hit conversation piece for late night pillow talk or breakfast nook conversation. All within the confounds of your own four walls, full of comfort and coziness, that dares for you to leave. So, grab a few good books, food, and wine and hunker down for the Holidays.
Vision board with Family
Hey, we’ve all been to a vision board party and found that it was a great way to center and execute our goals for the upcoming year. Well how about we break that down to pint size and teach the kiddos how to plan and put their goals in front of them with a plan. Maybe they want to make better grades, or they want to get along better with their siblings. What better way to teach them to accomplish their goals, than to teach them how to visualize, and see their goals in front of them while pushing them to achievement? A night of food, family, and some sparkling cider will center the whole family on the goals of the New Year.
In the end, the Holiday Season is a time for festivities and fun that can be done any way that you like, but it is your home that you will look no further than your address to have the time of your lives!
