Get-togethers are a great deal of fun. Hanging out with family and friends aids in strengthening bonds, and helps you to destress at the holidays.

There are many options for get-togethers before Christmas that will be enjoyed by all who attend. Do not go over board on the number of guests, or the refreshments being served.

  1. Candy Making Day

    Pepper mints, toffee and chocolate covered cherries are but a few of the options available for this holiday. Needham’s and fudge are excellent choices as well. Everyone will be able to bring a plate of goodies home with them, plus there will be plenty for the Christmas party.

  2. Wreath Making Day

    Wreaths make great gifts to be given at the beginning of the holiday season. Wreath forms can be made from pine trees, or store bought forms can be used. Each guest can make a wreath for themselves, as well as some for others. You will also get to keep a few for yourself and to give away. Or you can use this as an opportunity to make some extra cash by selling the wreaths.

To save money:

  • Make the candy from scratch.

  • Purchase needed items on sale, with a coupon or using both methods.

  • Have others help with the cost.

  • Bake multiple goodies at once.

  • Check out the local dollar store to see what deals they might have.

  • Use materials you have on hand.
