From turning your home into a winter wonderland to planning activities and setting the table for a festive feast, there’s lots to think about when it comes to your Christmas hosting duties.
Luckily, here at George we’re ready to help you host your most magical Christmas to date! With matching Christmas outfits for the whole family, glowing gift ideas and Christmas decorations fit for the North Pole itself, your loved ones won’t want to be anywhere else on December 25th.
Make A Hosting Christmas Checklist
If Santa’s making a list and checking it twice, you should be too! Note down everything you need to host your best Christmas ever and check it off as you go. List things like Christmas decorations and gifts near the start so you have them ready in advance. You can then finish your list with last-minute food essentials – you can never have too many chocolate selection boxes! This way, nothing gets forgotten so you can relax (for the most part!) and enjoy the big day.
What Do I Need For Hosting Christmas?
When it comes to what you’ll actually need for hosting Christmas, begin with the basics. We’re talking plenty of food for everyone, a Christmas tree and stylish Christmas room decorations. From here, you can move on to all those little extras that make Christmas at home feel truly special. Think board games and puzzles, Christmas pyjamas, stockings and… PRESENTS!
Once your shopping is done (which is definitely a reason to celebrate!) you can start to plan the day itself.
Choose Family-Friendly Christmas Games
It’s official – Christmas isn’t Christmas without a party game or two! From charades and Scrabble to classic board games, the right entertainment is a great way to get everyone together and share some memorable laughs at Christmas. Play them throughout the day or save them as an after-dinner treat. You can even keep your stash of games handy for New Year’s Eve if you’re spending it at home.
Prep Guest Rooms With Snug Christmas Bedding
If your guests are staying overnight, make sure they feel welcome and suitably festive by making up their beds with some snug Christmas bedding. From single and double duvet covers to king-size duvets sets, we’ve got literally everything you need to transform their room into a cosy Christmas Grotto.
Create Your Very Own Winter Wonderland
When the weather outside is frightful, make your home feel so delightful! The good news is decking the halls couldn’t be simpler with our enchanting range of Christmas room decorations.
Pick out a Christmas Tree that fits your space, then decide on your Christmas colour scheme. We have plenty to unwrap, from classic red and white decorations to modern rose gold and blush decor and everything in-between. Don’t forget, decorating with plenty of Christmas lights is a quick and easy way to make any space sparkle!
Plan Out Your Christmas Tableware In Advance
Hosting Christmas means planning a meal that everyone can enjoy. Go for a classic turkey roast with all of the trimmings, or if that doesn’t suit you and your guests, why not create a huge Christmas-themed buffet or grazing platter full of festive bites and nibbles. Whichever you choose, be sure to check for any dietary requirements before going shopping.
With your meal decided, you can focus on acing the set up with trending Christmas tableware and decorations to keep everyone feeling merry and bright. We call the first cracker!
Plan A Christmas Jumper Competition
Not feeling as Christmassy this year? We’ll sort it out! Get everyone into the Christmas spirit by hosting a Christmas Jumper competition. Grown-ups and little ones alike will adore spending the day feeling comfy and SO ready for the festivities. You can even offer a prize for the best one. Be sure to share your festive jumper snaps with us by tagging @GeorgeatAsda on Instagram!
Find Glowing Gifts For Your Loved Ones
Presents might not be the most important thing when it comes to spending Christmas together, but if you are exchanging gifts with friends and family this year, we can help find just what you need. From Christmas gifts for babies to the magical present for your partner and even a special something for your pets, they’ll treasure everything you’ve wrapped for them underneath the tree.
Get Cosy In Christmas Eve Pyjamas
We’re calling it – the only thing more exciting than Christmas day is the night before. Treat your loved ones to some matching family nightwear, then get snug on the sofa to wait for Father Christmas’s arrival. Christmas films and festive snacks pending…
