The holidays provide a lot to be excited about, but what happens when the big day is now behind us and not before us? Months of anticipation, parties and gifts, not to mention food indulgences come to a quick finish. Here's some tips and ideas on how to avoid the post-holiday dip!
#1 Recollect, but don't dwell
Just as the sun rises yet again each morning, remember that you have several holiday seasons to look forward to in the upcoming years. Just because you have to store your tree or the menorah away for now doesn't mean that the memories to come with them in the future won't be even better than the ones you've already had!
#2 Parties can happen anytime
Champagne and hors d'oeuvres make every evening in December sparkle, but why wait for one month a year to entertain? Keep the dark nights of winter lit up by hosting pot luck dinners with friends and after work Aperitivo's once a week. Believe us, your friends will thank you and you'll be thanking yourself too!
#3 Family is forever
One of the best parts of the holidays is having everyone dear to you near! Well just because your parents or family members are already up in the air back home doesn't mean that you can't continue to share special moments and laughs year round. The season reminds us of how much our loved ones mean to us, so while save it all for one week a year? Treasure your loved ones by staying in contact, taking those five minutes to give them a call, write them an e-mail instead of hitting refresh on your e-mail for the hundredth time. Remember, it's the little moments that add up to big smiles!
#4 Gifting Year Round
For the month of December, everyone's in a mad rush to find that perfect gift for that special someone, but aren't the best gifts of all usually the most unexpected? Who says you can't wrap up something special or do a mock stocking come January or February with treats filled to delight your family and friends? Plus, in store at Lenceria Boutique, our new spring arrivals are coming in by the day, and a lingerie set from Agua Bendita or Pura Vida bracelets are never un-welcomed!
#5 Look to the Future
Just as New Year's is less than a week away, remember all the other holidays that are soon to be here before you know it! Savor the present moment, but also look fondly ahead with the idea that each day, holiday or not, is a wonderful opportunity to bring more smiles, laughter and joy!
