Handy Christmas hacks

Christmas is nearly here, but there’s no need to get your tinsel in a tangle. We’ve put together these tried and tested tips to help your Christmas run as smoothly as possible:

Clever cardboard boxes

Keep your house clear of Christmas chaos by using a large cardboard box wrapped in festive paper to chuck in all of your used wrapping paper and cardboard. Not only does it make your house look less like a of a wrapping paper explosion, it’s also easy to recycle afterwards.

Identify your veg

Give Christmas vegetables festive names to encourage your toddler to tuck into her Christmas dinner. Broccoli can become mini Christmas trees, carrots can be known as snow mans’ noses and transform your Brussels sprouts into mini green bogies!

Personalised wrapping

Avoid a Christmas morning meltdown by wrapping your toddler’s presents in a different coloured wrapping paper to all the rest. He’ll instantly be able to identify what Santa has brought!
