The radio stations are playing Christmas carols on a loop, shops have plethoras of festive stock in and every house is decorated like a Santa’s Grotto. 2020 has been a tough year and it is of no surprise that we all want to dive into the most wonderful time of the year.

In this article Radar has compiled a list of simple tips and ideas to help you get into the Christmas spirit.

 

Fairy Lights

Here at Radar, we are huge fans of fairy lights- the more the merrier, in our opinion. Whether you want to go for classic white or multicoloured, there are tons of options that will create that cosy glow in your bedroom. Drape over your bed, bookcase or windowsill for a Wintery ambience.

 

Bedding

There are many different bedding designs perfect for the festive season. Whether you choose to go for a full-on Christmas design, a design with Wintery animals or simply a red checked design, there are lots of options to choose from. You could also get some Christmas themed pillows to add to the festive look.

 

Nightwear

Not only is Christmas nightwear usually the cosiest, greatly needed during  the much colder weather we have recently been getting, but they bring a smile to our faces. With the stress of deadlines making us all a little bit more reluctant to get those recommended 8 hours of sleep in, dressing up in fluffy pyjamas makes it a little bit more attractive. 

 

Christmas Movies

There is one major way to capture the spirit of Christmas, and that is, of course, through watching Christmas films. From Elf to The Grinch, there are plenty of feel-good Christmas classics. Bake some festive treats, throw on your favourite Christmas pyjamas and settle down for a Christmas movie marathon. When baking the treats, put on a Christmas album or playlist to truly get into the festive mood.

 

Christmas Tree

The act of decorating a Christmas Tree is wonderful in itself, all the different coloured lights, baubles and tinsel. Whether you go for a chic all-white look or simply a merry multicoloured extravaganza, the tree is a must-have for any Christmas room.

 

How do you decorate for Christmas? Is there a specific tradition that you always have? Let us know in the comments or on social media. Last, but not least, here at Radar we wish you a very merry Christmas for when it comes.

Covid-19 has had a major impact on the fashion industry.
