How to have a Cozy Christmas Morning

If you know me, I am just absolutely in love with the holidays. Yes, that may sound oh-so basic, but I love the family, friends, food, warmth, laughter, and all the good feels it brings! Gathering around with loved ones is one of my favorite things to do, especially when there is yummy food involved! Christmas morning is no exception to that. So let’s grab a blanket, put on our fuzzy socks and make it a Cozy Christmas Morning.

Ever since John and I got married, we started to realize the importance of making Christmas morning special. We were no longer with our families right away and had each other to spend the morning with. Here’s a few ways how we make our Christmas morning special and cozy:

Take it slow, Snuggle often, Savor the time

We are always so used to getting up and hitting the ground running right away in the morning, so it is nice to have a morning to just savor the time together and snuggle our sweet pups. Even if you are single or don’t have furry pups to snuggle, just take a few extra minutes to relax and savor a few more minutes snuggled up under the covers! It won’t be wasted time. Especially if it’s cold outside – getting out from under the covers is just so hard!

Eat Breakfast in Bed

You are never too old to eat breakfast in bed. There’s just something so fun about being able to make a quick dash to the kitchen, load up with goodies and sneak back under the covers before all the heat escapes. Here’s a couple of our favorite drinks and breakfast treats to enjoy in the morning:

Make Your Own Traditions

As I was mentioning earlier, we realized that once we were married we had the chance to make our own Christmas traditions! Don’t worry, we are still hanging onto all the ones that we have with our families, but it has been so special and fun to start our own. Even if it is something so small, make it yours. Married or not, you can do it. One way that we have started our own tradition is to make and give each other stockings on Christmas morning. They don’t have to be full of anything spectacular or expensive, and that is what makes them so fun and casual.

Wear Comfy Clothes!

This may seem like a no-brainer, but it really does make a difference! If you’re anything like me, you are so much more yourself when you are comfortable in what you are wearing. If you are into the matching pajama thing, do it! Otherwise, I think its fun to pick out something cozy to wear, even if it is just a new pair of socks or some comfy sweats! Here is what we love this year:

PS: you can never go wrong with a good ol’ Christmas scented candle either!
