December activities for all the family

Fun activities to try this December

December is a festive month, especially with Christmas around the corner. Whether you're already really excited or need a little inspiration to get in the spirit, there are plenty of fun things you can do to celebrate this month.

Check out some of our top ideas below...

Decorate your home

It's time to put up the Christmas tree and decorate it with lights, ornaments, and tinsel, hang stockings by the fireplace, and decorate the rest of your home with magical lights, wreaths, and other holiday décor.

Don't forget, we have a huge range of Christmas trees, wreaths, inflatables and other decorations that are perfect for your home this festive season!

Bake some tasty treats

If you're looking for something fun to do, why not bake cookies, gingerbread houses or a yule log? You can get creative with shapes and decorations or even host a cookie decorating party with friends and family.

Movie marathon

While the weather outside is frightful, you can get cosy by the fireplace and watch some classic Christmas movies. Favourites include "It's a Wonderful Life," "A Christmas Carol," or newer films like "The Grinch", "Polar Express", "Elf" and "Home Alone."


Another fun thing to do this festive season is make homemade Christmas cards, ornaments, or decorations. You can also create personalised gifts for friends and family, which is a lovely way of showing your love.

Outdoor activities

If you live in a snowy area, go sledding, build a snowman, or have a snowball fight. Take a stroll through your neighbourhood and enjoy the light displays and their impressive decorations.

Visit a Christmas market

Explore local Christmas markets for unique gifts, festive food, and entertainment. These take place all over the UK (and internationally if you fancy a trip further afield!) and each one offers its own unique experience.

Attend Christmas events

Check out local events like parades, tree lighting ceremonies, or community carolling.


Spread love and cheer to those in need by volunteering at a local charity or community organisation this Christmas. There are plenty of choices and ways to help, whether you want to give your time at a local food bank, help out at an animal rescue or donate clothes to a charity shop.

Gift wrapping party

Get together with friends to wrap presents while enjoying festive music and snacks. This is a great way to bond with your loved ones, but remember not to show presents to the recipient!

Secret Santa

Looking for ways to save on gifts this year? A good way to reduce costs is by organising a Secret Santa exchange with friends and/or family. This means that you only have to buy for one person rather than the whole group.

Reflect and set goals

The end of the year is the perfect time to reflect on the past year and set goals for the coming year.2024. Whether it's improving your fitness, find a new job or simply being kinder to yourself, there are plenty of things you can do to have a more positive year next year.

Create a gratitude jar

Throughout the month, write down things you're grateful for and put them in a jar. Open and read them on Christmas Day as a way of reminding yourself of everything you are thankful for.

 December is well underway but there's still plenty of time to make it extra special. The most important thing is to enjoy yourself while spending time with loved ones, you won't get Christmas again for another year, after all!
