Christmas Bucket List 2020

With COVID and Lockdown taking centre stage this year, my bucket list posts have been put on the back burner but after much deliberation, I decided to share our Christmas one because there is still so much we can do despite how life is at the moment - it'll just feature more home-based activities than usual. 

I like to keep my bucket lists filled with things that are easily accomplished be it big or small. They also give me the push to do a little more when all I want to do is hide from the cold with a blanket.

So here are a list of things I'm hoping to do with family this Christmas, I'd love to know what you have planned too.

  1. Drink hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows
  2. Bake Christmas treats like cookies, mince pies or a Christmas cake
  3. Write a letter to Father Christmas 
  4. Read Christmas stories
  5. Buy Christmas candles
  6. Wear matching Christmas pyjamas
  7. Make a gingerbread house or make gingerbread stars
  8. Create a Christmas playlist and dance around the kitchen
  9. Watch as many Christmas films as possible
  10. Decorate the house together
  11. Go for a walk to look at neighbours Christmas lights
  12. Wear a Santa hat
  13. Make handprint ornaments 
  14. Spend the afternoon doing Christmas crafts
  15. Have a family games night with Christmas Monopoly
  16. Spend the evening writing cards and wrapping presents
  17. Go for a crisp winter walk
  18. Buy our 2020 Christmas ornament 
  19. Make reindeer food for Rudolph
  20. Cut out snowflakes and decorate the windows
  21. Make s'mores (dairy-free!)
  22. Create our own Winter wreath
  23. Make cinnamon playdough to play with
  24. Leave mine pies and milk out for Father Christmas
  25. Take lots of photos for a Christmas photo book

What are you looking forward to this Christmas?

  5. #2 is definitely something I want to do more this year! X

  6. Aw I love this post. I’m all for Christmas cheer atm and I love to see how everyone enjoys the festive season.

  7. Such a great list and all covid friendly too! I’m so sad that I won’t be able to visit a Christmas market this year. It certainly will feel different this Christmas but it’s important to do what we can to keep the Christmas spirit alive! x

  8. Ahh this is a lovely list! It's definitely going to be a different Christmas to usual but I'm sure we'll all make the most of it the best way we can. I'm looking forward to lots of Winter walks and getting snuggly at home with a hot chocolate! xx

  10. There are so many lovely festive things on your list. I think 2020 has definitely taught us to enjoy the small things more and also enjoy time spent with family.

  11. I'm looking forward to the fact that we can stay home this year, as we've spent 7 out of the last 9 Christmases with my In-Laws. I wish I had my own little family to create traditions - it's a tough time of year when you want kids, but don't have them x


  12. This is such a cute list! This holidays will definitely be different then before!

  13. Handprint ornaments will be super cute!! I did them with my cats last year haha xx

  14. Watch as many Christmas films as possible is one that's definitely on my list too! I'd love to see how the dairy free snores come out too x


Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog and post a comment <3
