Holiday Ideas To Do At Home

Well, we knew it was going to be a different holiday season, but I do still think we can make the most of it. With the new restrictions that were put in place in British Columbia this week, I thought I’d put together a list of holiday ideas you can do at home with your bubble that you might ~~actually~~ want to do! I hope these help you get into the holiday mood and bring you some joy!

Play Bartender

Have fun mixing cocktails at home. Born to Shake has great kits to make it easy. Here’s a list of 50 holiday-inspired cocktails too.


Puzzle + Christmas Movie

One of my favourite holiday activities is to switch on a holiday movie I know and love and work on a puzzle. Mosaic Books has great puzzles.

Go for a Long Winter Walk

Without sounding too dramatic — I literally would not have survived COVID without my daily walks. Toss in your headphones and a good podcast or feel-good playlist and walk it out!! 

Make a Fort

Pretend you’re a kid again and set up your living room for a cozy Hallmark movie night. 

Bake or Decorate Cookies

Have some fun and test your holiday cookie making abilities. Scoop and Save based out of Langley has great baking supplies you can order online.


Holiday Shopping From Home

Get your holiday shopping out of the way. You can use my gift guides for ideas or take a look at my Holiday Boutique + Featured Retailers.

Have A Vacation Themed Night

Okay, this isn’t really a ~holiday~ activity, but I think theme nights are so fun. I think we are going to have a Mexican fiesta this weekend at our place and make tacos and margaritas. How fun would an Italian night be? Sip on wine and make pasta and pizza! Bonus points for decorations or costumes!

Try Making Pumpkin Spice Mexican Hot Chocolate

Recipe here. Or just make hot coco with whip cream and marshmallows 🙂


Send Out Christmas Cards

Make them yourself or buy some! I make Christmas cards every year, it’s so fun and means so much to the people receiving them!

Secret Santa

Set up a Secret Santa exchange with your friends or family – you could even open gifts over Zoom!

Have a Movie Night

Do a double feature of a holiday movie that’s been remade (Miracle on 34th Street, The Grinch..)

Hold a Gingerbread House Making Contest

With your household or with friends in other places virtually. Poll Instagram for the winner!

Get EXTRA With Your Holiday Decorations This Year 

Check out my holiday decor picks here.


Hang Twinkly Lights

Instantly adds coziness to your space.


Buy Yourself a New Pair of Slippers

You’re going to be wearing them more than normal shoes, might as well make them cute and comfy hehe!


Go Through Your Closet

And put together some ttems to donate, I’m sure there are some things you can find that you don’t need.

Take a Drive

Go look at Christmas lights! Bring hot chocolate and listen to Christmas music.

Take a Holiday Photo

Thank you self-timer!


I’m going to keep adding to this list as I come up with ideas! Do you have any ideas?! Comment below or shoot me an email or DM! Hope this list gave you some ideas of fun holiday things to do at home!
