I can’t believe the holidays are almost here! We leave on Saturday to spend the holidays in Massachusetts, so I am trying to fit in as much holiday cheer into our home before the whirlwind hits. While I’m sure I will end up at the store doing some last minute errands (I keep forgetting the peanut butter! haha) I also want to enjoy some last minute festivities.

5 Last Minute Christmas Ideas

  • Make a gingerbread house. You can pick up a gingerbread house kit from just about anywhere, including the grocery store, and it has all you need! My only pro tip is to use hot glue to put the house togher, and icing for the decorations. You can’t eat it, but it actually stays put.

  • Enjoy hot cocoa or eggnog while listening to some classic Christmas carols

  • Watch a Home Alone marathon with the ones you love

  • Take a quick drive around the block to see all the lights

  • Watch all the Christmas episodes of Friends and the Office on Netflix
