Charge Your Phones, Cameras and Other Gadgets

Before you do anything, charge everything that needs to be charged from phones, cameras, to household gadgets like vacuum which you’ll probably need!

Ensure the House is Ready

Before anything else, it’s important to make sure the house is ready for the following day. Visitors will surely love to be welcomed by a clean and guest-ready house. So before calling it a night, make a quick tour of the house and see what needs to be done.


Don’t forget to prep the guest room as well, regardless of having no guests planning to stay the night. It’s vital to have a room ready for little ones to snooze in or just a spot for the guests to leave their valuables. 


Relax and Bond with the Family

Now that you have envisioned and planned everything you want for Christmas, it’ll be so much easier to execute. Squeeze in some time to bond with the family on Christmas Eve. Watch a Christmas film and share snacks on aCharcuterie board. Light up candles. Enjoy the warmth of family and the spirit of Christmas.
