1. Create an epic playlist
A special Christmas requires a special soundtrack. Preparing your Christmas playlist
ahead of time will mean that you will be set all December long, and come Christmas
lunch with the grandparents, you won’t have any awkward song surprises! Here are
some modern Christmas Albums to get you started with your playlist:
-Wrapped in Red (Kelly Clarkson)
-Merry Christmas (Mariah Carey)
-A Legendary Christmas (John Legend)
– The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection (Taylor Swift)
-Christmas (Michael Buble)
2.Finding the perfect gift
We all know that Christmas isn’t about the material things. But for many people, giving
gifts can be a way that they express love and gratitude. And who doesn’t like to receive
a thoughtful and personal gift!
When considering the perfect gift it can work in your favour to have a sneaky chat with
the gift recipient’s close friends/family to gauge what they would be hoping for. Or if they
seem to be the person who has everything, consider purchasing them an ‘experience’
3. Matching Christmas Pyjamas
Ringing in Christmas with your Matching Christmas Pyjamas is a sure way to create
Christmas cheer! Get dressed up each year, and take a photo in your PJ’s by the
Christmas tree or bouncing on the bed! So that you can look at your photos over the
years and watch your family grow. In addition to all the fun and anticipation it creates, it
can also cause a sense of belonging within the family. Special, right!?
4.An Afternoon at the Beach
An Australian Christmas means beautiful summer weather, white sand and beautiful
blue ocean! The beach is a strong part of Aussie culture and taking a trip with the family
is a perfect way to make Christmas special.
Bring a footy for the beach, set up your beach cabana and watch the kids paddling in
the waves in their environmentally-friendly swimmers, with fish and chips in hand.
5. Family Photographs
Time moves too quickly and having your family photos created is a great way to look
back and remember your family as they are right now. Since Christmas is the time when
the extended family tends to gather near, it is the perfect time to take your photographs.
What’s more, a framed print or photo album with the latest family photographs makes
the absolute perfect gift for your dear ones.
But make sure you book a family photographer ahead of time! Christmas Mini Sessions
and full family sessions tend to book out quickly over the Holiday period.
Traditions can help create a sense of identity and security in family members. It
elevates the holiday season by giving family members marked events and things to look
In addition to all of the ideas listed here, traditions could include attending a Christmas
service, watching a carols show, driving around the neighbourhood to spot Christmas
lights, leave out cookies for Santa (and carrots for the reindeers of course!), visiting
Santa at the local shopping centres.
