Actually Anna Christmas Countdown Day 7: My Christmas essentials

christmas essentials

Sinterklaas has left the country, so the Christmas vibes can arrive at my house. I’m planning on decorating the my house and the Christmas tree this weekend, but first I’d like to tell you some of my Christmas essentials. I’m going to write a separate post about my favourite Christmas movies, so this Christmas essential isn\t included in this post. But it is one of my favourites of course!



For me Christmas starts when the radio stations start playing Christmas music. I love all the good and old Christmas Music . Wham, Mariah Carey almost every Christmas songs make me happy! I love listening to Christmas music when I clean around my studioflat.



Although the weeks leading up to the Christmas holidays are usually very busy, I love a good book. Especially during the Christmas holidays! At the moment I really love books like Ice cream for breakfast or The life changing magic of not giving a f**k. #GIRLBOSS also was a very inspirational and motivating book. I’ve read this during the summer holidays, which is also a holiday I love to relax and read a book. Another book I’ve heard really good things about is The Working Woman’s handbook.


Cosy footwear

A nice pair of fluffy slippers together with a pair of cosy warm socks make me feel so festive! I usually have a pair of fluffy bear shaped slippers, but this time I picked up these very Christmas themed slippers in Primark. I really love them and they make me feel so festive!


Festive drinks

My last Christmas essential is definitely festive drinks. I love a good cup of hot chocolate (lactose free of course) with some (again lactose free) whipped cream! The red Christmas cups in Starbucks also make me feel so festive and a good reason for a Starbucks visit. Their pumpkin spice latte is also a favourite of mine, but I think they only sell those around Halloween.


I really hope you liked reading about my Christmas essentials. What are yours? I’d love to know your favourite Christmas essentials in the comments below!
