Make your home smell merry and bright

Who doesn’t love a Christmassy scent, right? Well, why not head into your local shops and treat yourself to some lovely Christmas smells for your home this winter?

Cinnamon, pine, orange, candy cane… the list goes on, why not get yourself a reed diffuser or even splash out and get an electric oil burner to allow yourself to enjoy the aromas of the season in a renter-friendly way?

Plump it up

This year why not treat your sofa to some TLC? Without having to spruce up the whole living room, why not just add some soft furnishings to keep the costs low, but the festive look ever on trend? On a budget, you can easily find yourself some Christmas cushions and throws to add to your sofa and make things look extra cosy to snuggle up to in the festive period without making holes in the walls. Whether you get throws from the high street shops or find a good buy in a charity shop, it’s super simple to keep the budget low and the decorations renter-friendly while also making your apartment look super cosy and festive.

Baking to decorate

Why not whip yourself up the perfect Christmas cake or even a selection of tasty cookies this festive season? This will not only provide you with a super sweet thing to do with your friends but will also let you decorate your kitchen worktops with some lovely Christmas treats, what’s not to love?

Grab the ingredients from your local shop and set yourself a Sunday afternoon to let your baking skills free in the kitchen alongside your friends while you put on your favourite Christmassy film and toast to the season. You’ll have a tasty treat for you and any of your holiday guests this year in no time and we’re sure you’ll love making it while you’re at it.

A traditional Christmas tree

What would the festive season be without a traditional Christmas tree? And let’s be honest, you’d feel weird without one, wouldn’t you? Oh, and we don’t want to hear you don’t have the space - they have tabletop trees for that exact reason, so whether you want to fill your tree with tinsel or baubles, there is always time to set aside and get your tree filled to the top. With affordable Christmas decorations from your local charity shops, or even some fancier ones that you have picked up at the Christmas markets, your tree is going to be dressed to the nines we can feel it.

Wrap up your home

Another cosy way to spread Christmas cheer is to wrap your door in a big red ribbon – letting all your neighbours know you’re the greatest gift they’ll see this Christmas. Not only does this provide a festive welcome to your guests, but it makes things look lovely and homely from the inside and outside of your apartment door – what a seasonal treat.
