7 Festive Must-Do's to Tick Off Your Holiday Bucket List Before the Season Ends

7 Festive Things to Do Before the Holidays End

Hey there, fashionistas! As a holiday-loving gal myself, I can’t help but get giddy about what color tinsel to drape on my tree and which garland will make it shine. It’s the most magical time of the year, after all! But amidst the shopping, socializing, and holiday chaos, it’s crucial to savor the merriest moments. That’s why I’ve concocted the ultimate holiday bucket list – a delightful guide to make sure you don’t miss a single festive beat. Trust me, it’s an absolute must-read for all you fashion-loving mavens out there!

Let’s dive right in, shall we? Here are the seven must-do activities that will keep you jingling all the way through the holiday hustle:

1. Host a Holiday Cocktail Hour:

Who needs a full-on dinner party when you can mix and mingle with ease? Picture this: setting up a nibble board, pouring some drinks, and rocking that holiday cheer without the stress of serving a full meal. To make it extra special, serve a signature holiday cocktail that’ll up the festive vibes. My personal favorite? The espresso martini – sweet, decadent, and the epitome of a good time. Trust me, the aroma of espresso will have everyone flocking to your soirée. And if you’re longing to capture that romantic, espresso martini scent, check out the Absolut x Kahlúa Blend No. 83 fragrance – a heavenly blend of dark chocolate, sugarcane rum, and Arabica coffee. Just one spritz, and suddenly you’ll be texting your squad, “espresso martinis and chill?” 😜 Psst, it’s available for pre-order now, and you won’t want to miss it!

2. Decorate Holiday Cookies:

Is it even the holidays if you don’t have cookies shaped like gingerbread men and snowflakes? Embrace your inner baking queen and embark on a royal icing adventure. Picture yourself wearing your ugliest sweater, blasting holiday tunes (She & Him Christmas, anyone?), and whipping up enough cookies to feed an entire football team. Not a baking pro? No worries! Grab some pre-sliced sugar cookie dough and pre-packaged icing – in the words of culinary goddess Ina Garten, “Store-bought is fine.”

3. Watch a Few Holiday Movies:

Get ready to snuggle up on the couch, popcorn in hand, and indulge in the coziest activity of all – holiday movie marathons! Prioritize your top three or four films of the season (because let’s face it, the list is endless), and immerse yourself in their heartwarming tales. And hey, if you’re feeling adventurous, why not catch an outdoor holiday movie at a winter cinema or drive-in? Talk about next-level movie magic!

4. Drive Around to Look at Lights:

Sure, you may go all-out indoors with your holiday decorations, but let’s not forget about the dazzling light displays outside! Take a whimsical drive through a neighborhood that transforms into a mesmerizing wonderland. Tune in to a radio station playing Christmas music, and let the lights embrace you with their twinkling magic. It’s the highlight (pun intended!) of the entire holiday season.

5. Stroll Around a Holiday Market:

Bundle up in your chicest winter coat, grab a warm cup of mulled wine, and indulge in the ultimate winter wonderland – a bustling holiday market. Twinkling lights, festive spirits, and the opportunity to support local artisans and makers. Sounds dreamy, right? Explore stalls filled with candles, pottery, and jewelry, making holiday shopping an enchanting experience you won’t want to miss. Who said gift hunting couldn’t be stylish?

6. Catch a Live Holiday Performance:

It’s time to channel your inner fashion icon, slip into that gown you’ve been dying to wear, and embark on a night out at the theater. The holidays are the perfect excuse to indulge in some cultural delights. For me, The Nutcracker is an absolute can’t-miss show that never fails to warm my heart. But if ballet isn’t your cup of tea, fear not! You can soak in the festive spirit at a symphony, holiday concert, or live theater show. And hey, even listening to Christmas carolers totally counts!

7. Sip on Hot Cocoa in Front of the Fire:

Ready for the ultimate cozy finale? Picture yourself in front of a crackling fire, holding a mug brimming with delicious hot cocoa. It’s the quintessential holiday experience, a moment of sheer bliss. Whether you have a fireplace or not, queue up a Yule log on Netflix, grab your favorite book, and surrender to the warmth and decadence. Oh, and don’t forget to garnish your cocoa with a candy cane. It’s mandatory, folks!
