5 Festive Activities For Under A Fiver

Hours of fun for less than the price of a mulled wine. Interested?

Every year I find myself imagining a whimsical Christmas Bucket List in the months leading up to the festive season, only to realise I neither have the funds nor the time to action it come December. That is why I've put together a list of activities you can do this Christmas, with minimal planning and cost.

1. Visit a Christmas market.

I'm lucky to live a 10 minute walk from Winchester Christmas market, and I wander around it regularly without spending a penny, despite the seemingly endless knick knacks and chutneys. It's nice enough just to inhale the smell of all-things-mulled and bratwurst.

2. Build a gingerbread house!

My favourite is £4 from Flying Tiger. Check it out here!

3. Bake something christmassy.

Similar in tone to the last one, with a much lower rate of success. Yet here we are, year after year home-baking cookies so oddly shaped they could win the Turner Prize

4. Meet a friend for a festive coffee.

Lots of places have coffee and cake deals around Christmas if you try their new festive drinks- it's also a perfect opportunity for a catch up.

5. Drive around and look at Christmas lights.

It shouldn't shock anyone that this is on the list.
