How about this year all of us overworked, frazzled procrastinators have a fun plan to keep us on track? A Christmas Bucket List filled with fun things to do can be that plan. Start this holiday bucket list in early December and it will not only keep you on a better schedule for the season, but the activities will also get you in the spirit of Christmas.
Make a Homemade Gift
There is always something special about giving and receiving a homemade gift (it’s a fun thing to do in any season!). It could be a glass frame with pictures of you and your friends or pretty smelling soap or infused vodka—the possibilities are endless!
Create Handmade Christmas Cards
With a collection of papers, ribbons, glue and some decorative pieces you can create some pretty festive Christmas cards that will WOW your family and friends. Head to the store right now and buy some cardboard.
Make a Christmas Tune Playlist
Christmas music has come a long way over the years—it seems like every major artist has a song or album. Use spotify or apple music to create your perfect playlist!
Watch a Holiday Movie Favorite
Slip into your comfiest PJs make some popcorn and watch a holiday movie that will get you into the spirit. You can even go one step further and make it a movie marathon. Some favorites are:
- It’s a Wonderful Life
- A Christmas Story
- Miracle on 34th Street
Spend an Evening Wrapping Presents
Wrapping presents is one of my favorite holiday activities! I save all the gifts until just a few days before Christmas then spend the night listening to holiday music and covering them all in pretty paper. It’s super fun, you should try that.
Do a Random Act of Kindness
Random acts of kindness are some of the most fulfilling and most humane and human things you could ever do. Especially when it is done for a complete stranger.
- Donate some food
- Pay the bridge toll for the person behind you
- Go to an orphanage and help out for the day
- Feed someone on the street.
The possibilities are endless. The best way to approach this is to look at your local community and see what it is they need the most.
