Holiday memories are some of the sweetest. From baking cookies with your grandmother as a child to wrapping gifts, to toasting to another year together with all of your cousins, gathered in a twinkle light-covered living room for that one weekend a year where everyone dropped everything just to be present. Gift giving, delicious food, and wishes for snow. These are the memories that we’ll never forget.
So many of these memories center around home. And, as families grow and new traditions are made, the homes that star in our memories also change.
4 Tips for Creating a Home for Holiday Memories
Whether you’re moving out on your own for the first time, buying your first home, or upgrading to a bigger, more permanent spot now that you’re adding a new addition to your family, moving into a new home is a new opportunity to create memories.
Maybe it’s the first time you’re putting up a real tree in your home or you’re feeling overwhelmed at the idea of hosting a holiday dinner for the whole family — don’t be! What matters is bringing your loved ones together, and we have a few tips for creating that festive feeling in your new home and making it feel as special as all those years and traditions you remember.
1. Find the Perfect Spot for Your Holiday Decor: Start the tradition now! If Christmas is your thing, choose a spot for your tree and put it up, even if all you have is a string of lights and a few ornaments. Everything looks better by twinkle lights! Those who celebrate Hanukkah, placing your Menorah in an area that can spread light to others is of the utmost importance. Consider placing it on your dining room table in front of your floor to ceiling windows.
2. Let the Holiday Smells Waft In: Sometimes you have time to bake and cook — sometimes you don’t. And when you don’t, you can recreate the holiday ambiance by simmering a stovetop potpourri with cinnamon sticks, cloves, citrus peel, and ginger.
3. Hang a Wreath on the Door: No matter which winter holidays you celebrate, create a festive wreath to celebrate the occasion. Plus, it’s a conversation starter for new neighbors to comment on!
4. Don’t Stress Over Perfection: Even if you’re not ready to host a full holiday dinner, just invite a few friends over for a festive evening. Maybe even have them pitch in and help you make your house a home, whether that’s by decorating the tree or creating an assembly line for holiday cookies. This is when memories are made by coming together to laugh, spend time celebrating, and not worrying about whether everything looks perfect. This new home is the start of new traditions you’ll cherish for years to come.
