3 ways to feel festive this December

 As Dan's birthday is on 1 December, we don't usually start to feel Christmassy until his birthday weekend is over. Feeling festive is one of the best feelings in the world, so when Dan's birthday has been and gone, we do all we can to get that feeling. Here's to cosy nights in with the Christmas tree glowing and the candles burning!

Whack Buble on - or just Christmas music in general

Of course this was going to be on my list. I can't listen to any of Buble's songs without being reminded of Christmas. A few personal faves are Feliz Navidad, and Blue Christmas. Buble's Christmas album always reminds me of the first few Christmasses with Dan so it has an extra special festive feel to it. We also used to listen to Christmas songs as a family whilst we put up our tree when we were younger so it always brings back some lovely memories.

Get stuck into a festive read

Reading is one of my favourite things to do, as I've mentioned on here probably a thousand times. Getting cosy with candles and a festive book is one of my favourite ways to get into the spirit of Christmas. Usually I go for Christmas chick flicks as they are easy to read but usually get me in the festive mood because they are about love and friendship!

Watch your favourite Christmas film

Christmas films are easily one of the best parts of Christmas. With so many to choose from, there is nothing better than spending the evenings in the lead up to Christmas watching a festive flick! A few of my faves are The Holiday (Jude Law!), Miracle on 34th Street and Elf. I'm so excited to watch ALL the Christmas films.

Another way I feel extra festive is to do all of the above with loved ones! Christmas is all about love, and spending time with family so if you can watch your favourite Christmas film, why not invite your bestie over, or have a festive book swap with your Mum?
