Holiday Bucket List Ideas

The holidays can be chaotic, I get it. But dont forget to make time for some of the things that also make it magical. Not everything has to cost you a lot of time or money. Some of these bucket list ideas are simple and sweet.

  • Wake up early and enjoy your coffee by the light of the christmas tree. Put your phone in another room and just enjoy the cozy moment.

  • Make homeamde gingerbread cookies (or any kind of Christmas cookies!) Go all out and decorate with icing and sprinkles. Invite some friends over and turn up Mariah!

  • Take a holiday inspired bubble bath with a fun bath bomb and peppermint scented everything! Bring your hot cocoa in with you!

  • Take a drive to look at Christmas lights one night. Reseach areas in your town that are known for their holiday light setups, pack up the family and bring a thermos with hot cocoa or tea.

  • Find a local seasonal attraction that's going on. For instance, here in Asheville we have a rooftop bar that's offering an igloo to enjoy your bites and drinks!

  • Treat yourself to holiday coffee at Starbucks.

  • Buy a Christmas sweater and wear it holiday shopping!

  • Write out a list of gifts you'd love to recieve like you did when you were a kid.

  • Carve out a day or evening for a Hallmark movie marathon. Set up charceturie boards with holiday snacks like popcorn, cookies and candies.

  • Find a homemade ornament to make at home with friends or kids.

  • Decorate your bedroom for the holidays.

  • Find a fun holiday book to read! I'm reading, The Christmas Murder Game by Alexandra Benedict, currently.

  • Host a gingerbread house decorating competition!

  • If ice skating is avaliable in your area, GO! If not, commit to a winter walk one evening.

  • Get photos with Santa...duh!

  • Volunteer somewhere as a family or with a group of friends.

  • Go sledding if you live where it snows or find a manmade snow area that offers sledding, skiing or tubing.

  • Go to a holiday parade!
