Holidays feeling less holi-yay this year?

Creativity is the answer. |

The holiday season is about togetherness. And when you can't be in the same place as your loved ones, holiday songs can sound less cheery, hot cocoa can taste less sweet, and traditions can feel a little hollow.

But with some creativity, you can find ways to feel close to your friends and fam even when you're not together. Here are a few tips on how to stay close while being distant.

Tip #1: Cook Holiday Dishes Together on Video

We've all been video chatting for months now, but let's face it: it can still feel awkward. One way to make these calls more fun and natural is to set up your video chat in your respective kitchens and cook together. Choose a traditional holiday recipe and go through all the cooking steps at the same time. It can almost feel like old times and you get some treats out of it too.

Tip #2: Coordinate (Remote) Secret Santa

Your friends, relatives, and coworkers can easily keep this holiday game alive while remote. Set a date for opening gifts, a budget, and use a digital name picking tool (like this one) to get the event started (and umm, shameless plug, you can find unique puzzles, aprons, tees, and stickers on Redbubble that might be pretty perfect). Don't know the people you're playing with all that well? Here's a Secret Santa questionnaire to help you out.

Tip #3: Have a Socially-Distanced Ugly Christmas S̶w̶e̶a̶t̶e̶r̶ Mask Party

Masks don't have to ruin your holiday look, they're just another place to display your ugly Christmas spirit. Don a creative holiday mask designed and sold by an artist on Redbubble (you can even get one that matches your sweater) and enjoy responsible socially-distant wassailing.

Tip #4: Play Holiday Jeopardy

For people who believe a little friendly (or bloodthirsty) competition is a great way to spread holiday cheer, here's a game of holiday Jeopardy. Choose a host to read the prompts and keep score, and players can ring a jingle bell when they have the answer (or the question I guess... it is Jeopardy). You can play this in a socially distanced setting with a group, or play it on video call.

Redbubble believes that art has the power to bring us together. So keep being creative, positive, calm, and cheerful for yourselves and for each other.
