A Very COVID Christmas

Despite crossing our fingers and making wishes on unblown birthday candles, it looks as if Covid-19 will be sticking around with us at least a bit longer. Facing more time at home coming into the winter months may seem daunting. We’re all getting a little tired of the same old, same old, but as we head into the holiday season large home improvements may not be an option for everyone. This doesn’t necessarily mean that we can’t spruce up the homestead a bit without breaking the bank. Here are a couple of easy tips:

1.  Rearrange Your Furniture. Sometimes this is enough to give you a different point of view - literally! Find a new focal point and begin to build the room around it. Maybe move the TV to a different wall and go from there. Place the largest piece(s) first and go from there. Also, think about what you need from the room as you reconfigure. Extra room for family game night? A space to hold the 1000 piece puzzle? Room for an extra home office space? You’ll likely find that moving your own furniture around changes the look and feel of your room significantly with less money spent. A fresh perspective and some new throw pillows could make all the difference!

2.  Surround Yourself with Smiles. Most of us have been missing our family and friends for the better part of 2020. Even for those who have started to find a balance between caution and return to our ‘new normal’, our social lives just aren’t what they used to be. Loved ones living too far to visit, a new baby, or an elderly family member we hesitate to see all take a toll. Use this opportunity to surround yourself with pictures and memories; and don’t be afraid to change them out frequently. Make a special photo wall or spread them around the house. Take advantage of online photo printing and get some of those great photos off your phone and into your home!

3.  Create your own comfort. With stress levels reaching record highs, everyone needs a comfortable space to kick-back, relax and unwind, whether it be a marshmallow-soft sofa to hold the whole family, a comfy reading chair for one, or even just a luxurious soft throw blanket. Find or create your happy place, sit back, and enjoy - you deserve it!

4. Mindful Online Shopping. Even when Covid-19 becomes a distant memory (and it will!), online shopping is here to stay. Let’s face it, the convenience of shopping in our PJs is just too awesome! But despite the temptation of 2 am shopping sprees, it's important to shop mindfully not emotionally. Be sure you need (or at least REALLY want) whatever it is before you click to purchase. And do your homework. Be sure the online company has a good return policy for damaged items or even things that turn out to be ‘not quite right’ for you. Do they have a customer service phone number where you can actually reach a PERSON? Do they have good reviews? Be cautious of ‘too good to be true’ offers and don’t be afraid to comparison shop. Many companies (including Homethreads) will sometimes price match to earn your business.
