It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and we couldn’t be more excited!
With the temperatures dropping, the bars and pubs all hosting a succession of work Christmas parties, we think it’s totally acceptable to invite all your friends over for a festive night of food and films instead!
Here are a few essentials for the perfect Christmas night in!
Decorations, decorations, decorations
You needn’t go crazy (although, we wouldn’t judge you if you did) but for the ultimate Christmas night in, your lounge has got to look the part, right?
To really get into the festive spirit, you need to look around and see Christmas. We’re thinking tinsel, Nutcrackers, and that all-important, overloaded Christmas tree!
For an added bonus, plan a secret Santa for you and your friends, just so you can put those beautifully wrapped gifts under the tree for that perfect pre-Christmas Insta post!
The best seasonal movies and TV shows
It wouldn’t be Christmas without the festive films and countless Christmas TV specials. Choose your favourites and queue them up for the perfect Christmas night in!
We’d recommend a couple of family favourites like Home Alone and Elf, but we all love a rom com, so make sure you cosy up on the sofa to Love Actually, The Holiday and, of course, Bridget Jones!
A festive smelling candle
Now you’ve got your living room looking the part, it now needs to smell the part. You want your friends to walk into your lounge and inhale the scent of Christmas.
Luxury candles are all the rage, and you can find the perfect scent for your cosy night in at home. Whether you want a hint of Christmas spice, baked cookies, or even the smell of a Christmas tree, they’ll find them all at your favourite candle shops.
Your favourite comfort food & drinks
A night in wouldn’t be right without the most comforting food you can find. The Christmas season is the perfect excuse to over-indulge in everything the experts tell you is bad for you, so put the bikini body on hold until January and pig out to your heart’s content in festive style!
First things first, get that Bailey’s hot chocolate overloaded with squirty cream and marshmallows!
Then, throw your favourite snacks into a bowl, crack open the tub of Celebrations, warm the cheese fondue and warm-up that Christmas party selection for the perfect accompaniment to your night in.
Get cosy with a bedding overload
You want your guests to feel as cosy as possible the second they walk through the door. So, grab all the blankets, pillows and throws that you can find and arrange them beautifully in your lounge for ultimate comfort.
Last, but especially not least. Now you’ve got your ultimate night in sorted, you need some fresh new loungewear clothes to spend the night in.
Treat yourself to an early Christmas present and splurge on some good quality loungewear, you’d do the same for a Christmas party, so why should a night in be any different?
At The Other Label, we have a great selection of quality, comfortable loungewear that’s also fashion-conscious, so you can cosy up in style!
There’s nothing wrong with opting for a cosy night in at this time of year, and we think it beats being out in the cold, hands down!
