As they say... it’s the most wonderful time of the year!! So we’ve listed a few things to help get you feeling the Christmas spirit! How to make the most of this festive season...


Christmas Jumpers!!

Whether you just sport it for Christmas Day or all throughout December, a good old festive jumper will immediately lift your spirits.... with the exception of the awkward Bridget Jones and Mark Darcy scenario...

Watch Christmas films

This is my personal favourite thing to do this season, with the short days and cold nights what is one to do other than get all cosy in pyjamas and watch endless films:-

Home Alone, Love Actually, Elf, The Holiday, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Polar Express, Mean Girls (Yes, the Christmas scene does count!), a Christmas Carol, Nativity!, The Snowman, The Santa Clause, Die Hard, Bad Santa, Frozen

Who doesn’t love the smell of the warm spices from baking winter goods... here are some classics to have a go at:

Mince pies, Yule log, Cinnamon rolls, Gingerbread, Gingerbread House, Christmas Pudding

Or if you don’t fancy home-baking, you can buy pre-made gingerbread houses which you can construct and decorate at home! Delightful!

Drinks –

Mulled wine – another personal favourite which you can make yourself or buy by the bottle! You can also get non-alcoholic mulled wine from IKEA who sell gingerbread houses and gingerbread dough for baking.

Baileys hot chocolate – So simple and soooo good!

Eggnog – Sweet and creamy... it’s one that you either love or hate

Christmas Smellies

If, like me, you are amazed by anything Christmas smelling then you should try out these seasonal products!!

Air Wick Mulled wine or Apple Spice plug in air freshener (you can get these from Wilko)

Sainsbury’s Winter Spice washing up liquid – only 60p!

Christmas candles – IKEA have an amazing VINTER 2017 collection with candles starting from just £1 each!

Car Freshener – Yankee Christmas Cookie flavour car air freshener... need I say more?

How cute are there gingerbread men pot pourri?! £6 for three at ASDA!

Decorating the house along to festive music is a great way to get in the mood... and it doesn’t have to break the bank either! You can make your own snowflakes and paper chains out of paper, or go down to the pound shop and shop those glittery bargains.





If you like to get out and about this time of year why not visit Chatsworth House – you can get tickets to ‘Oh Dickens! It’s Christmas’ (until 7th Jan) with scenes inspired by Dickens’ classics. The House itself is so beautiful!

Sheffield Christmas Markets are still on until Christmas Eve with 50 cabins of gifts, seasonal food and drinks. And of course Santa’s Grotto!




Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at Home Accommodation! We’ll see you next year!
