Top Reasons Why You Should Plan a Christmas Getaway
It’s almost that time of year again! You may have noticed the amount of festive stock suddenly making an appearance at the shops, or your workplace has started discussing the office Christmas party – either way, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to celebrate it this year! If you’d like to try something different and relieve some of the stress that sometimes comes with the festive period, why not consider staying away for the holidays? Not only can you experience some Christmas magic with your family, but you can also relax and put your feet up! Take a look at some of the main reasons why we think you should plan a Christmas getaway.
You can explore a different city
Many cities around the country are perfect weekend trips at any time of the year, but for Christmas, they are even more magical! Around the festive season, Derbyshire is a hub of cheer – many places in Derbyshire offer a Christmas market experience that’s perfect for all the family. Do you need some last-minute gift ideas? A Christmas market offers gifts and food, so you definitely won’t leave empty-handed! If you’re wondering which Christmas market to go to, this handy guide may give you some much-needed inspiration. We’d recommend Chatsworth and Bakewell ourselves!
You can spend time with loved ones
Christmas is all about spending time together as a family and there’s no better way to do this than changing the scene and taking time away from your busy life. By staying away, you can discover a new city or re-explore one you’ve visited before – but this time, with a festive twist! There are a variety of different places you can go to where you don’t need to worry about the stresses of hosting at Christmas, which means you can focus 100% of your attention on the people who matter the most.
You can save money
Whilst going away may seem like a costly venture, it doesn’t have to be! Whether you’re staying away for just a couple of days or a week, it doesn’t have to cost a lot – it’s the memories that are the most important thing to focus on! Maybe instead of buying gifts for everyone, you can treat them to a short getaway over the holidays. Not only that, but you can also avoid the rush of the Christmas shoppers!
It’s easier to relax
Imagine this – you wake up on Christmas morning, exchange gifts with your loved ones and then instead of worrying about preparing your Christmas dinner, you walk down to a restaurant where a Christmas dinner will be waiting for you! Hosting your family and friends around the festive season can cause stress, especially if you are the one who cooks the dinner. Staying away means that you don’t need to stress about making sure the vegetables are ready in time for the turkey – food can be provided so you can relax and focus on catching up with your family and friends.
You don’t have to cook the Christmas dinner
As much as we all love a good Christmas dinner, having to cook it is one of the more stressful parts of Christmas – especially if you’re cooking for a lot of people! When you plan a getaway for Christmas Day, you have the opportunity to put your feet up and enjoy the day without the looming thought of having to cook. You can also spend the day visiting the area, as you’re not spending hours in the kitchen – it gives you plenty of time to make some memories with family and friends, especially if you have young children.
