Advent – 10 ways to do it

Advent is just around the corner. Are you ready? If now, I’ve got some last minute ideas for you. Some of them might need a bit of shopping before you can create them at home, but you’ve still got a few days left.

I ended up using my Kubus candle holder from ByLassen again this year. I like in nice and simple – also when it comes to Christmas decorations. I’m a bit of a weird Christmas freak, when it comes to decorations. Truth be told, I’m more of a winter decorations kind of gal. I’ll add snowflakes, trees, snow, glitter, silver, some black, some lights and some toy animals and cars – and then I’m ready for December

There is no way around it. I simply love Christmas. I love everything about it: the buying gifts, the gift wrapping, the family traditions, the meet ups with friends and family, the decorating and so much more.

A few years back, I created an activity calendar for December. I love the idea that each day you’ll get a different task, cozy and a bit practical of course, to do. If I’d had the time, I would have done something along these lines this year, but I want to share a few ideas and a tip with you.
