Five Top Tips To Avoiding Christmas Related Stress

We love Christmas here at Eventa. Not only do we love sourcing some of the best Christmas parties for you and your friends to enjoy,  but we also love helping people with our hints and tips for making the whole Christmas period fun!

Christmas can be a stressful time as you rush around planning, partying and trying to get everything ready for the big day. Too much stress can mean you wake up Boxing Day exhausted, wondering where on earth the month went. Christmas is a special time of the year, and we want you to have as much fun as possible this holiday season with as little stress as possible. Bearing that in mind, we’ve put together some hints and tips to help you stay as cool as cucumber this Christmas.

 

1. Get a pen and paper… and plan

A little preparation can go a long way at Christmas time and half an hour with a notepad can save you a lot of stress later on. Make some time to have a cup of tea, sit down and plan the month ahead. Get a calendar for all your Christmas parties, and don’t forget to plan when you’re going to fit in that important Christmas shopping and tree buying.

shutterstock_400511938

2. Work out a Christmas budget

It’s so easy to get caught up in the festive feeling and overspend at Christmas, you see something you know your aunty would love, and you forget that you’ve already bought her the Russian dolls and a Terry’s chocolate orange.

Before you know it, there are a pile of receipts building up and you can feel overwhelmed at your spending. It’s worth figuring out a budget for all the things you’ll have to be buying at Christmas, and then trying to stick to it. Keeping a little notebook of everything you’ve spent will also help remind you if you’re on budget or not.

3. Don’t wait till the last minute for your Christmas shopping

Considering it’s a time for giving, one of the most stressful experiences can be Christmas shopping, usually because it’s been left too late and you find yourself racing round the shops on Christmas eve in a panic. Make sure you get your shopping done early, make it even easier and shop online for your gifts. It will give you more time to get out there and enjoy the party season!

4. Get ready for your family…

Christmas is often a time when families come together, which is lovely, until your mum starts asking about your love life and your dad just asks you what you’re going to do with your life. Take a deep breath and prepare yourself for these little things and remember that Christmas is about peace and goodwill to everyone, which includes your little brother… unfortunately.

5. Make some time for you…

Don’t forget to take some time out of the hustle and bustle of Christmas parties and festive preparations to have a little “me” time. With so much going on it can feel like you’re being pulled in all directions so make sure you find some time to relax, remember that the happier you are, the better company you’ll be to others!

There’s no strict rules stating that you must invite your neighbours and the whole of your street. Obviously if you like your neighbours then add them to the guest list, but if not, just keep it close friends and family. No hard feelings eh?

Work out final numbers

Find out exactly how many people will be attending. This will give you an approximate idea of how much food and drink to buy in for your summer bash!

Research and see if any attending guests are vegetarians

There’s nothing worse than a vegetarian attending a barbecue and there’s nothing suitable for them to munch on apart from salad. Purchase a few packets of vegetarian products such as Quorn sausages or Linda McCartney burgers.

Also consider cooking the vegetarian options away from the meat or even better, pop them in the oven so there’s no risk of contaminating them with meat juice! A selection of tasty dips such as hummus or tzatziki with warm ciabatta sticks or carrots will be greatly appreciated too!

Don’t do things last minute

Get everything set up before your guests arrive, including tables and chairs, cutlery etc. Get the barbecue fired up too and have drinks ready on the side for your guests – you don’t want to be a host that appears unorganised!

Wear suitable attire

Obviously, no one’s going to expect you to be super smart. It is summer and you will be cooking up a feast using the BBQ, so casual attire is perfectly fine. A humorous apron is optional, but will always be well received!

Make sure the food is properly cooked

Make sure all the prep work to the food is done before everyone arrives, such as popping the meat and vegetables on skewers and keeping chilled in the fridge beforehand. Before serving, do make sure everything is properly cooked and piping hot. Maintain good hygiene whilst handling raw meat and avoid cross-contamination. No one wants to endure food poisoning!

Have non-alcoholic drinks available too

There will be guests driving to your barbecue, so make sure there’s alternatives to alcohol available for these people. Mix it up by having a variety of fizzy drinks, naturally flavoured still drinks or even just simple squash.

If the weather’s shoddy, have a back-up plan

Grey skies and torrential rain? Uh-oh! You can either re-arrange your barbecue for another day that will hopefully be brighter and sunnier or you can create a plan B and host the party inside and get the food cooked up in the oven. Sure, this doesn’t quite have the same appeal as the smell of delicious burgers wafting through the air and feeling the heat of the sun on your skin, but it’s still a party. Nothing left for it but to get those drinks flowing!

For the Guest

Ask if there’s anything you can bring

Sure, most hosts will say something along the lines of ‘don’t worry, just bring yourself’ but it’s always polite to bring something with you to the barbecue, even if it’s just a bottle of wine or some sides. Bringing something is always a kind gesture and you can’t go wrong with drinks!

Don’t rock up late

Make sure you arrive to the barbecue on time (and sober!). It’s just good manners if someone’s putting on a nice event for you to enjoy.

Offer your help

Ask if there’s anything you can do to help before or after the barbecue. Your host may be super grateful for your assistance with the cooking or your help clearing everything up afterwards, loading the dishwasher or washing and drying the dishes.

Bring sun protection

Make the most of the sun, but do make sure you’re protected from the sun’s harmful rays! Ensure you apply sun cream with a decent SPF on those areas of your body that are exposed and wear sunglasses or a hat.
