Nothing screams Christmas more than making your own Christmas cards. Let your children unleash their creativity by allowing them to create their own Christmas cards to give to family and friends. If they’re running out of ideas, here are some ideas you can teach them.

7. Enjoy your favourite Christmas movie

The holiday season is the perfect time to relax, be cosy on the couch and enjoy good Christmas movies together. Either let the children pick the movie or choose from this list and create your own movie playlist at home.

To make movie night more fun, make some popcorn, cookies and other snacks, then serve some drinks using your Thermos® Carafe. This will keep your beverages chilled during the movie and reduce your number of trips to and from the fridge.
