Your At-Home Christmas Guide

Santa Claus is coming to town, but with social distancing, mask requirements and medical professionals urging families to stay home in 2020, his visit isn’t going to look the same as last year.

Even though you can’t be with loved ones this year, your family can still have the holliest and jolliest Christmas from the comfort from your own home and this at-home Christmas guide is here to help with craft and recipe ideas, plus activities that you can do safely this year.

Pre-Christmas prep

We’re already in December and you know what that means — it’s time to find the perfect presents for everyone on your list.

While it might be easier to click a few links on Amazon and have everything delivered to your door, the small businesses in the Chicago area need your support this year more than ever.

Here are a few lists of shops and gift guides to check out this year:

The food 

Whether you eat a large dinner as a family or just want some delicious snacks to eat while opening presents, food is a big part of this holiday and these fun recipes can help you add a little flair to your menu.

The activities

Many of the traditional holiday events in Chicagoland are canceled this year but there’s still plenty of things to do with your family at or near home — just remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing if you do head out.

Merry Christmas!
