Two months to go til Christmas day 2020!

The lead up to the festive season is an exciting time! Of course, Christmas may look a little different this year with restrictions on gatherings. However, we have two months to curb the spread of covid and keep our fingers crossed that we can retain some of our favourite Christmas traditions. That said, one thing we have learnt this year is how to take our usual gatherings online, so we know that if necessary we can make Christmas drinks, Christmas shopping, and Christmas day special without even having to leave our homes.

Here at Bliss we're working hard to help you prepare for the big day. 

 At this point it's impossible to say what restrictions will be in place come December, however it seems likely that pubs and restaurants may still have to endure curfews, and we may only be allowed to visit in groups of six. However, there is some hope that we will still be able to enjoy a more intimate version of Christmas parties, albeit with earlier finishing times. Despite the uncertainty, it wouldn't be a bad idea to make a tentative booking now, since it is likely that limited spots may fill up.

The best way to combat these costs is to prepare yourself early, so that you can relax and enjoy the holiday season, rather than spend it being stressed about money.

 Whilst it is the most wonderful time of the year, the downside of Christmas cheer is that with come a lot of expenses, and 2020 has put many people into a difficult financial position. The best way to combat these costs is to prepare yourself early, so that you can relax and enjoy the holiday season, rather than spend it being stressed about money. 
.
The first step is to figure out how much money you will need for the Christmas period, by adding up all of the expenses. Things to consider may include:
.
Gifts
Food
Decorations
If you have kids, money for school holidays activities and possibly childcare
If you have time off work over Christmas, you may need extra spending money
Christmas/ New Year parties and nights out
New outfits for said parties
Bliss beauty treatments for party season 😉
 .
Once you have added together all of your costs, minus the amount of money from your savings that you plan to put towards Christmas. Next, you need to divide that by the number of weeks until Christmas (currently 11). 
.
So if your costs come to £1110, but you have £120 saved up already, you need to save another £990. £990/11 = £99. This is the amount of money that you will need to put aside each week, whether it's in a piggy bank or savings account. 
To make this easier, you may need to consider which little luxuries you can go without for the next 11 weeks. Maybe you can take a flask of coffee from home out with you instead of buying coffee, or shave £10 off your weekly food shop by cooking cheaper meals. Ask for makeup and clothes as Christmas presents rather than buying them for yourself now.
.
Another useful tip is to empty all of the change out from your pockets into a jar at the end of every day - this is now your Christmas savings jar, and you'll be surprised by how much it can build up in just 11 weeks. 
.
If you're feeling swamped it may be worth considering trying to make a little extra money for Christmas. Maybe you can pick up a Saturday job to make an extra £70 per week - remember, it's only for 11 weeks. Maybe you have things that you could sell, or you can offer your services to help other busy people prepare for Christmas. Consider taking part in online surveys or market research to add to your Christmas funds. 
.
When shopping for your all-important Christmas party dress, look around for the sales, and discount codes. Just because you've found a lovely dress on one website, doesn't mean it isn't available on others for cheaper - it's always worth checking ebay, too. 
Book your holiday beauty treatments at Bliss with one of our online packages to save money.

Christmas Party Venues 2020

The office Christmas party will look a little different this year. At this point it's impossible to say what restrictions will be in place come December, however it seems likely that pubs and restaurants may still have to endure curfews, and we may only be allowed to visit in groups of six. However, there is some hope that we will still be able to enjoy a more intimate version of Christmas parties, albeit with earlier finishing times. Despite the uncertainty, it wouldn't be a bad idea to make a tentative booking now, since it is likely that limited spots may fill up. Here are some of our favourite venues for Christmas parties in Leeds 2020.

However, they will be offering a mouthwatering special menu throughout the festive period. Choose from 2 courses for £28, or 3 courses for £32, with winter favourites such as winter squash soup, roast turkey, and traditional Christmas pudding.
