Things To See & Do This Winter

6 December 2017

Although the Winter solstice begins on the 21st of December, I definitely think it's feeling much more like Winter each day. As Autumn moves into Winter I have my list of things to see and do this Winter!


:: Wrap up warm in cosy layers and take a walk through the nature trails, parks and woodlands. Take your camera to snap away at the Winter landscape changes.

:: Visit a local Christmas market.

:: Enjoy a wander in the snow or frost (fingers crossed for some more snow this Winter).

:: Have a go at ice skating.

:: Visit a castle or an estate. Most will have events going on throughout this festive season and into the new year.


:: Forage and collect pinecones to display around the home.

:: Make your own hot chocolate. Try different flavours like peppermint, gingerbread and chocolate orange.

:: Make a DIY Winter wreath or garland for the home.

:: Make your own Winter decorations using foraged finds or shop bought craft materials.

:: Bake some Winter treats such as all things Gingerbread, truffles, fruit cake and shortbread.

:: Gather photos from the year and make a scrapbook or photo album.

:: Make a delicious porridge for breakfast. My favourite is cinnamon porridge!


:: Prepare your Winter home with cosy throws and decorations. Bring out the Winter coat, hat, gloves and scarves for your Winter wardrobe.

:: Enjoy a cosy night in watching films.

:: Embrace Winter mornings, noticing the pink and peach colours of the sky whilst the sun rises. If there's been a frost, notice how it glistens on the roof tops and across the lawns in the sunlight.

:: Cosy up and read a book or magazine. I love to read magazines for any baking ideas or DIY inspiration. Magazines such as The Simple Things and Creative Countryside also have beautiful seasonal content.

:: Treat yourself to a new pair of cosy Winter pyjamas.

:: Spend some mindful moments and set goals or little reminders for the new year.
