This year I am joining the – legions of bloggers before me – and taking on the Blogmas challenge
What pray-tell is the Blogmas Challenge I hear you say?! Well! Blogmas is when your friendly neighbourhood blogger (me!) posts a Christmas related post each and everyday on the run up, starting on 1st December – fun right?!
To kick things off, I thought I’d give a helping hand to my fellow bloggers who are taking part, with a round up of my personal top 10 Blogmas post ideas.
10.) Blogmas Announcement
I like when bloggers let their readers know that they’ll be doing blogmas because then I know to check back each day to read new Christmassy content!
9.) Christmas Giveaway
Who doesn’t love a giveaway!?! When readers have been so good in coming back and supporting your blog all year long, a little treat is a great way to show your appreciation for that support.
8.) New Decorations Haul
I like to pick up one or two new bits each year to build our little collection, it’s nice to see it grow steadily each year and I enjoy watching what new additions other people get too.
7.) Christmas Market
6.) Christmas Playlist
Each year we cook Christmas dinner on “Fake Christmas”, this is a random date which Himself and I choose ahead of Christmas week and it’s basically our christmas, just the two of us. When we’re cooking and getting everything ready I love having music playing and really getting into the spirit! Having a playlist linked in a Blogmas post from one of my favourite bloggers ready to go is so handy!
5.) Stocking Filler Ideas
Always a good one, everyone dwells on the main gift but sometimes, a little extra something is all you need, this is where a list like this one really comes into play!
4.) Holiday Outfit Ideas
Even if it’s a year where we have zero Christmas parties to be going to, I love to dress up on Christmas day – so getting some inspiration online is always a winner in my book!
3.) Edible Gifts
Putting the effort into making a homemade gift (edible or otherwise) always makes people feel special because you have given up your time and these days, our time is becoming the most precious thing we have to offer. Previously I’ve made these, these and these.
2.) Top 10 Christmas Movies
Himself and I have a pretty set list of Christmas movies we like to get through over Christmas Eve, Day and St. Stephen’s Day (Boxing Day), having said that – I may have to do an update on our list – a few newbies snuck in last year that we’ve already said we want to watch this time around!
1.) Christmas Gift Guide
Last but my no means least, my top Blogmas post to read, are gift guides – I LOVE going through these types of posts early December because by then, I’ve probably purchased a few gifts but not many, so it’s an ideal time for me to gather up ideas. I prefer when it’s a big full list catering to everyone, like my gift guide last year, rather than multiple individual posts – but that’s just my preference, I know some people hate to scroll, so individual postings work better for them!
Best of break legs luck to everyone taking on the Blogmas challenge this year – remember – you can’t suit everyone, so just do you and enjoy the process
Let the Blogmas begin!
