Christmas

This year’s Christmas is most-likely different for all of us! I usually spend Christmas back home in London surrounded by my extended family and friends, and this year I’ll be staying in Dubai and spending the holidays here. I’ve been super nostalgic recently, remembering all the great Christmas memories from last year, and like most people at the moment, I’ve been struggling to make it feel festive. I wanted to write this guide to help you get in the Christmas spirit, even if you don’t feel very festive at the moment! Perhaps you can’t go home to for Christmas, you can’t spend it with your loved ones, or you’re understandable feeling a bit worried about the global situation, hopefully this hope will help inject some Christmas cheer into your life!

If you’re not able to travel home to be with your extended family, if you’re in a country where you can’t have gatherings, or if you need to be extra safe, a virtual Christmas party is for you! Even though it won’t be the same, there are still a bunch of fun activities you can over Zoom. In this blog post I’ll be going through how to plan your own virtual Christmas party from choosing a platform, setting virtual backgrounds, and playing games. Stay tuned for some fun resources I’ve created as well!

In this blog post I’ll be sharing some of my most festive photos from the past few years as Zoom backgrounds, and you’ll be able to download these backgrounds for FREE to use on your own meeting!

It’s getting to that time of year where we all start making our Christmas wish lists and start buying gifts for our loved ones. I love looking at gift guides to help me with gift ideas, so I thought I would put together one of my own! This gift guide is a collection of products that are sustainably made, help you become more environmentally friendly, ethically made, or that support small businesses. I think these are all really important goals to keep in mind at the moment when we make choices about what to buy, and hopefully they’ll give you some inspiration for your gift-giving this season!

Christmas is only a few days away, but I wanted to give you all an early gift. This year I’ve created 8 different festive wallpapers for your phone so that you can feel all Christmassy every time you pick it up. They are all created by me and are completely free to download! All I ask is that you send me a photo of you using these wallpapers or tag me on Instagram @little.miss.expat if you use these.
