It's basically December so it's okay to talk about Christmas! I'm a super festive person and love the Christmas season, basically as soon as Halloween is over I go into full on Christmas mode!

I thought i'd share a few tips on how to get ready for Christmas and how to get into the festive spirit.

Putting the Christmas tree up is a really lovely way to get into the Christmas Spirit, we put a Christmas film on, have hot chocolates and put the tree up. We usually do it either the last weekend of Nov or first week of December. This photo is of my tree from last year, were putting ours up this weekend. Check out my blog post from last year all about my favourite baubles on my tree.

Listening to Christmas songs is a good way to get into the Christmas Spirit, why not download some Christmassy playlists on Spotify?

I like going into Town and visiting the Christmas markets, check out the Christmas lights, maybe do a spot of Christmas shopping. I love buying gifts for my friends and family and this really gets me in the mood for the festive season. Christmas can be a really expensive time of year and we don't always have spare money for buying presents but you could always get a loan from CashLady and then pay it back in monthly installments.

Wrapping the presents is my favourite thing to do throughout December, I love sitting with a pile of presents, my paper, tags and bows! I go a little over the top but I just love it! I usually pop a Christmas film on or listen to some Christmassy songs.

This year is our second Christmas with Amelia, but it feels like our first proper one. She was only a few weeks old last year so she wasn't aware of anything but this year I feel like shes a little more aware. I was looking at the decorations in Tesco the other day and she got so excited! I'm super excited to pop our tree up. We have been looking at different Grotto's and Santa experiences. We took her to a little Grotto last year and she got to meet Santa which was lovely, it's such a nice experience to take the little ones to see Father Christmas, it's something I loved doing during my childhood.

Going food shopping! This makes me soo excited for Christmas, Pigs in Blankets, Turkey and Stuffing!!! We don't even go food shopping because we have Christmas dinner at my moms but I get so excited when the shops start doing their Christmas foods, and the Christmas aisles! I love it!

What gets you in the Christmas mood? Do you enjoy Christmas and getting festive? How do you spend your Christmas?
