3 ways to be more extra this Christmas

With Christmas just around the corner, many of us are wondering what is the perfect gift we should get for our loved ones. Most of us start the year with a promise that this year our Christmas gift list will be planned early, of course, with gifts sourced way ahead of time. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case for a lot of people!

But the good news is, I did somehow manage to get most of my gifts by the time December came around. And it’s good news for you too because I’ve got the inside scoop for those who are just starting to plan! I spent the weekend wrapping gifts and I know that this can be a daunting task. So I wanted to share some advice on how to making it a little more fun! Why not be a little more extra this Christmas? After all it’s the festive season – let’s make it fun!

Firstly pick a stylish gift to wrap. My go to choice is Haig Club Clubman – it’s a super versatile gift, especially as it comes in such a stylish bottle. I gifted Haig Club last year (see more here), and my family were extremely happy to enjoy it over the Christmas holidays. This year I also decided to be a little more extra and cheekily get myself a bottle too so I can enjoy a cocktail whilst I wrap my presents. Tis the season and all! Our tree is all up, decorated, and ready with pressies underneath it. And I can tell you it’s way more fun with a drink in hand! Haig Club Clubman mixed with ginger ale is my go to this pre Christmas season – but I do think I’ll be mixing it up with different mixers over the holidays.

Mix your favourite Christmas classic tunes with modern jams to give your Christmas playlist an extra edge. Have a little dance so you can make your chores such as gift wrapping more fun! Not to mention the cocktail you previously made for yourself…!

Wear something cute and comfy that makes you feel like Christmas everyday! I opted for a jumper dress but festive pjs are my favourite too. I felt a little more festive enjoying my drink whilst I wrapped my presents in a cosy jumper dress. I also like to invite my friends over and make a gift wrapping party – isn’t wrapping more fun when you do it with your best friends? (PS just make sure you wrap their presents separately so you don’t spoil the surprise for them!)

I really love giving Haig Club Clubman to my friends and family as the bottle is so chic and easy to wrap. Also its so smooth and delicious and it goes well with any mixer. My favourite in recent times is ginger ale but you can try and stay traditional and mix it with cola.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Do let me know your gift wrapping traditions? I would love to know.
