Some of us choose to go on vacation during the holiday season. But, how do you still make it feel holiday-like while drinking a margarita on the beach?
Step one - Dress the part.
Even if you plan on celebrating Christmas on a tropical island, dressing to the season is easy if you’re creative! Swap your tropical print bikini for a dark maroon velvet. Velvet bikinis are all the rage this year, and you can purchase the one below for only $38.40 at Brazilian Bikini Swimsuits.
Night out during vacation? Opt for a lush dark green silky dress rather than a bright floral print. You’ll feel amazing and festive at the same time. This one is available Shein.com for $12! What a steal!
Step two – Celebrate small, but actually celebrate.
Is opening up presents on Christmas morning important to you? Make sure you and your family pack at least a few small presents! So many people make the mistake of thinking, “oh, bringing presents is a hassle, so I won’t bother to bring any.” However, you’d be surprised what a difference just one present can make!
If presents aren’t your thing, what other holiday traditions are important to you? Do you have a favorite family cookie recipe? Maybe you can make it ahead of time and take it on the plane. Always listen to a particular holiday song? Download it before you leave. With just a bit of planning, you can find ways to celebrate during your vacation.
Step three – Smell like the holidays.
Out of all of our senses, did you know that our sense of smell is the most connected to our memories? With Love, Sylvie perfume palettes, you receive three luxurious hand-crafted seasonal scents.
