Today is December 1st, and I don’t know about you, but that means that my tree is already up, presents are already bought, and wine is already mulled. I am KEEN for Christmas, and this year is no exception.
But despite the general feeling of joyfulness around this time of year, Christmas can also be stressful. The cost of gifts, socialising, travel and hosting can all add up to a big bundle of stress which can often take away from the Christmas cheer.
My best advice is to plan, plan, and plan some more. Give yourself a break and stop being so hard on yourself. So you don’t make it to every Christmas invitation you are given, you don’t have 3 varieties of pudding on offer on Christmas Day, or you mutually agree with your sibling that you won’t buy gifts this year. All that really matters is being happy- it’s cheesy but true. And in order to be happy, you have to be kind to yourself.
So whilst you’re busy doing everything for everyone else this year, why not enter a giveaway for the chance to treat YOURSELF instead this Christmas? There are 8 delightful M&S hampers up for grabs, all courtesy of the UK Money Bloggers. Our last UKMB Summer giveaway was a fantastic success!
