You know what we’re talking about. The holidays are a magical time of year; with treats, hot chocolate, fireside cuddling & beautiful, snowy wonderlands, it’s hard to not feel in the spirit!
As the old saying goes “if you had a fun holiday, but didn’t share it on social media, did it really happen?”. What wise words, indeed. With that in mind, here are five of the most Instagram-worthy winter activities to share over the holidays.
1) Christmas tree shopping
One of the quintessential symbols that the holiday season is upon us is a Christmas tree lighting up your living room. It is, hands down, the most important holiday accessory. Don’t let how important it is give you a bad case of “Blogger’s Block” though; @withallmyaffection & @inayali are great examples of how to keep your content traditional, elegant, & on-trend!
2) Weekend getaway
Followers love to feel like they’re being whisked away with you on your adventures, so why not make them feel as though they are going on a weekend getaway with you? Take @thelustlistt as a shining example of how to make engaging content using enviable scenery as your backdrop!
3) Hot chocolate
Loving chocolate is something that everyone can get on board with; there are so many variations of how to prepare hot chocolate that there is bound to be one to suit everyone’s tastes! Only a grinch could decline an invitation to cozy-up & drink some sweet, delicious coco in a trendy cafe (or in your trendy living space!). @nade_n is a maestro at making hot chocolate creations so cute that you almost don’t want to drink it! (Hey, we said almost!)
4) Gift wrapping
The most enjoyable part of the holidays is getting to spend quality time with your loved ones, and seeing the joy in their eyes when they unwrap that perfect gift that you bought them! Try taking pictures of your wrapped gifts & sharing them with your followers; it’s a great way to share a bit more of your personality & your design aesthetic! Look no further than @boucleetpapier for inspiration on how to create a beautiful flatlay that will leave your followers wishing you were their secret Santa!
The art of baking is certainly a lot more demanding than the art of eating what other people bake; if you happen to be brave enough to venture into the kitchen & create sugary delights, show off your final creations! Followers love to feast their eyes on edible art; take it from @oatbox content creator @kara_bino, who’s gingerbread cookie game is strong enough to get us drooling on our keyboard!
