Christmas Boredom Busters for the Crimbo Limbo
December 26, 2021

There’s no doubt Christmas is a fun time for all the family with the presents, the food and the family movies. Though sometimes, there does come a point when we need ideas for things to do! 


This is especially true for the ‘Crimbo limbo’ - the time between Christmas and New Year when we’re waiting for the celebrations to start again. 


If you want to beat the Christmas boredom in these last few days before New Year, check out our tips to help you keep up the fun.


Maximise the Movies


The festive movies will be playing for some time yet so make the most of this quality family time. Grab some popcorn from this Salter Electric Hot Air Popcorn Maker and a snug blanket for you all, and cosy up for the evening’s entertainment.


If you’d prefer something sweeter while you watch, keep calm and carry on indulging with the Giles & Posner Chocolate Fountain with Fruit Tray and 100 Bamboo Skewers. Who says decadence is just for Christmas Day?


Bring on the Karaoke


For a different type of entertainment, bring on the karaoke: this Mixx xBoost Wireless Disco Ball Speaker with Mic will provide plenty of fun, whether you’re singing a booming rendition of Good King Wenceslas or the latest number one hit. For the mini musicians in the family, keep them entertained (or entertaining you!) with this Academy of Music 54-Key Keyboard with Mic.


Make Crimbo Limbo Competitive

Be Jolly with a Jigsaw

While away the hours either solo or all together with the Gibsons TFL Heritage Posters 1000-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle.
