How To Spread The Holiday Cheer From A Distance

2020 is a year where vacations are postponed, milestone events are adapted to meet social distancing rules, and our holiday season is looking a bit different. With 2021 on the horizon that doesn’t mean holiday cheer can’t still be spread, it can, and from a distance! We all have our traditions surrounding the holiday season and this year we can adapt with door deliveries, virtual holiday parties and new family traditions.   


Here are 5 ways you can spread the holiday cheer from a distance:   


Cookie exchange from a distance   

Other than putting up a Christmas tree, breaking out the holiday family recipes is the real sign that the holiday season has arrived. This year we cannot do the big cookie exchange, or elegant sweet platter after a big meal, so why not hold a socially distanced cookie exchange?  



Treat yourself to self-care   

Self-care, mental health and physical health are most important to everyone this year. So make sure you take some time this holiday season to focus on yourself. Become a kitchen beautician and make yourself facemasks, have an at-home spa day, take a stroll in the neighbourhood to look at all the festive lights.  




Virtual Holiday Cocktail hour   

The holidays can still sparkle this year with a virtual happy hour. Round up your friends, dress up in your favourite holiday attire, send a zoom link pour some bubbles and sip some drinks.   




Give the gift of groceries   

Gift someone you love the fixings for a holiday dinner, the local goodies for a charcuterie board or the gift of local groceries going into the new year with our gift cards.   


Make DIY gifts   

The best gifts are the ones that are made with love. If you are creative at heart or have kids around, making gifts is a fun holiday activity everyone can get involved with. What is your favourite DIY holiday gift to make?
