Christmas is coming! 🎉
We know it can sometimes feel like hard work to get everything ready for your celebrations, but it's undeniable that the hard work is worth it in the end when everyone is sharing the festive goodwill and delicious food. Preparation is absolute key if you plan on enjoying your Christmas and our best advice for you is to prepare early. It might sound ridiculous to be talking about this in November but believe us, it will come sooner than you think!
Keep a list of gift ideas
Start taking mental notes immediately in the next couple of weeks when speaking to your friends, family and loved ones. Writing the gift ideas down will be even better! You just need two columns with names and the ideas next to them. This will help you keep track of what to get and will also allow you to tick people off or add them as you go along. You don't want to be forgetting about anyone! We highly recommend checking in on Lidl's weekly leaflets every Thursday to see upcoming offers at a great price. You might see suitable gifts that you didn't think consider! Don't forget to check in on our Black Friday offers on 29th November too. It's the thought that counts indeed, so allow yourself plenty of time and thought to get the gifts right.
If you want to go the extra mile on thoughtfulness, how about making something? Making gloves and scarves is an excellent choice of course, but if you don't have the skill and time how about making a Christmas card instead? It'll make a nice finishing touch to what they would usually receive and would certainly make your card stand out from the crowd!
If you're interested in making your own Christmas cards you can find all the bits and pieces you'll need from Lidl, including envelopes, stickers and washi tape from 7th November.
There's no denying that a big part of Christmas is the food. Whether your Christmas pudding has been soaking up its flavours for weeks, or you're more of an on-the-day chef, the extra hungry mouths that pop up at this time of year mean that preparation is key to a festive feast!
If you're stuck for ideas, Lidl has some fantastic Christmas recipes for the whole family to enjoy.
And if cooking a Christmas spread from scratch fills you with dread, never fear! You can pick up a magical array of pre-prepared goodies in store now, from Beef Fillet Wellingtons to Nut Roasts, and from Melting Puddings to Boozy Roulades, there's something for everyone this Christmas!
We all have that dusty box of decorations that we bring out year after year. This Christmas, why not try something a bit different and make your own! Get the kids and grandkids involved, and you'll have some special keepsakes to bring out for many Christmases to come.
Lidl can help out with a range of crafty items, including a Paint Your Own Wooden Decoration Kit, Craft Kit and Effect Spray Paints to really make those rooms sparkle!
Season's Greetings 🎉
We hope this has given you some ideas for making this a Christmas to remember. Preparation makes all the difference to your festive stress levels, so get started now and you'll have plenty of time to relax in the run up to the big day!
