Preparing Your Home for Christmas
Christmas is all about eating to excess, drinking and spending time with family and friends. But if you’re the host or hostess, the idea of all that preparation can seem a little daunting.
Don’t worry, we’re here to help ease the anxiety and help the festivities run without a glitch. Just think of us as your Morphy Godmother…!
Be organised and plan ahead. Leaving your Christmas gift shopping to the last-minute will stress you out and could result in some dubious panic-bought presents. No one needs a two-handled mug or a beer helmet. Trust us.
Make sure all your main presents are bought and wrapped up by the end of November so that December can be spent enjoying preparations like putting up the tree and strategically placing spray painted holly sprigs and tinsel.
For friends and family who love cooking up a storm why not order a gift direct from our website? You can pick up a Folding Stand Mixer for the aspiring Mary Berry or Paul Hollywood in your life, or, if you want to be ahead of the game for your January detox, how about putting the Easy Blend on your wish list?
Have a pre-Christmas clean. When you’re expecting guests, you want your home to look its best. Have a deep clean a few weeks before Christmas and draft in the family to help. Why not put on a Christmas mega mix to get into the spirt?
For a product that makes fast work of every surface in every room, get your festive mitts on a Luna 15-in-1 steam cleaner and you can use the time you save cleaning to watch a favourite Christmas movie! Can you really beat Home Alone for the perfect cosy night in?
Focus on the details. There are some clever little tips and tricks that will add a little sparkle to Christmas for your friends and family and make it truly memorable for everyone.
How about making a batch of personalised gingerbread men for each guest to welcome them? If you time it right, the house will even have the mouth-watering waft of Christmas baking.
Hosting little ones? Buy some plain baubles and paint and let them make their own decoration designs to take home with them – and to keep them entertained! If you need tips on what to do, check out our Pinterest board for how-tos and more crafty ideas.
And finally…….Enjoy It. Preparing your home shouldn’t feel like a chore and with a bit of thought, you can host everyone and still enjoy it yourself!
