Christmas is a truly magical time of year, when we traditionally set aside the stresses and strains of everyday life and make time instead for the simple pleasures which give life meaning. Whatever kind of Christmas you have planned, here at Scarlet Ribbon Merino we’ve put together a few of our favourite ways to make the most of this festive season!
There are few things more enchanting than the smell of home baking, and it’s an activity you can involve the whole family in, too. Help teach the kids about different ingredients and encourage them to help you decorate your latest creation. Whether a dab hand in the kitchen or a novice, the simple pleasure of trying out the latest and greatest Christmas flavours together by making your own mince pies, gingerbread men or some tasty Christmas cookies, is one of the true joys to be had during Christmas.
Already put up the Christmas tree and dusted off your decorations? How about trying to make a few of your own this year, for the chance to put your own unique spin on festive home décor? This is another activity sure to pique the kids’ attention, as well as allowing them a chance to get creative under your supervision. Imagine the simple pleasure of remembering all the fun you had making your decorations every time you see them. Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour, shape and texture to help create your own mini-masterpiece.
Whether you join a local carol singing group or opt for attending carol singing sessions at your local church, this is a tried and tested way to lift your spirits during Christmas – and spread a little festive cheer at the same time! Brighten your mood while it’s chilly outside with a good old-fashioned singalong of some Christmas classics.
The perfect Christmas gift is all about thoughtfulness. What better way to show you care than with the Scarlet Ribbon Merino range? We have great gifts for newborns and new parents, including our ever-popular and weather appropriate zip-up all in one daysuit and woollen baby blanket, ideal baby gifts for showing how much you care.
This is a great time of year for catching up with old friends and getting together with those you love. Whether that’s spending time with baby during their first Christmas, or making sure you keep in touch with old friends by writing all your Christmas cards, remember that the simple pleasures in life are what make everything worthwhile.
From everyone at Scarlet Ribbon Merino, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2018!
