As the evenings get a little colder and the Christmas season begins we have some cheap and cheerful ways to bring some Christmas cheer into your home.
Go Look at Christmas Lights
With the late evening setting in why not bundle the kids up in their winter coats and head outside for an evening stroll around Skerries. With all our local shops getting into the Christmas spirit it is lovely to take a stroll through the town and see all the wonderful festive window displays as well as the twinkling lights decorating the trees and monument.
Have a homemade Hot Chocolate
After your stroll, the best way to heat yourself up and give the kids a yummy treat is a warm mug of hot chocolate. Why not add a few marshmallows & a sprinkle of cinnamon to get in the Christmas spirit.
Check out our fabulous range of big mugs that are perfect hot chocolate.
Have a Pajama day
Like any of us need an excuse to stay in our favourite PJs but not why have a full PJ day.
Have a “no screen time ” day
In this day and age it is quite difficult to stay away from screens but why not all decide as a family to have a “no screen time” day & get out of the house.
There are wonderful walks that the whole family will enjoy around Ardgillian Castle & Skerries beaches. Why not pop into the library and pick out some Christmas books to read together.
Go shopping for a new Christmas ornament
Why not add to your Christmas collection and have a browse of our lovely Christmas pieces.
Write some Christmas Cards
It always nice to get a Christmas card in the post so why not send some family and friends near and afar a card this year.
Watch a Christmas Movie
It is never too early to watch a Christmas Movie from the classics like Christmas Carol to Home Alone there is a movie to suit the whole family & its the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit.
Visit Santa & Get your picture with him
Santa loves to visit his favourite Hardware store in Skerries & see all the kids in Skerries.
