The festive season is in full swing with every supermarket, home, street and school filled with Christmas decorations and festive twinkly lights which I love - the decorations and lights are some of my favourite things about this time of the year! We have our Christmas tree up and more decorations around the house but there is one room that is lacking some Christmas cheer...the office.

I work from home as a blogger and freelance writer so I spend 80% of my time in the office typing, answering emails, taking photos, editing photos, editing video clips, making lists, sorting out recycling and all of the social media things I have to do and schedule which can become so stressful and overwhelming especially at this time of the year so why not decorate your home office or your work place to elevate the pre-christmas stress!

Fairy Lights
Let's start with one of the easiest but most effective ways to add some pretty festiveness to your work place or home and that's fairy lights. Primark have so many options, all of which are battery powdered so they can be added anywhere and moved easily. Fairy lights instantly put me in a better and more festive mood!

Handmade Decorations 
Next up, decorations! Some of the quickest temporary decorations you can add to your work place are those are simple papercut hanging decorations. Hanging snowflake decorations are so easy to make by hand or they can be bought from online party retailers.

Secret Santa & Christmas Card Swap
Even with decorations, the festive cheer might be quite low so why not organise a secret santa or a Christmas card swap? Secret Santa gifts can be sweet, practical, funny or awful but either way, they are a great way of bring the Christmas cheer...or arguments into the work place. Swapping cards and decorating the office with them is another easy way of decorating for Christmas.

Christmas Playlist 
Finally, less of a decoration and more of a Christmas cheer amplifier! Some of my favourite Christmas songs include: the fairytale of New York, all I want for Christmas, Santa baby and I wish it could be Christmas everyday. Blaring Christmas song at home or at work is a sure fire way to lift the mood, decrease work and Christmas stress and to help with motivation which might be very lacking this week!
