The holiday season is coming! Are you prepared? If not, this blog post is perfect for you. We are going to be discussing the most fun things that you can do with your family during this time. This is going to be written from the perspective of the company providing the best private boat tours in Charleston, SC.

Let’s get started.

Go to a Local Christmas Festival

Whether it’s a parade of lights, a welcoming of Santa, or a festival of beautifully lit trees, there is usually something buzzing in every American town. The best festivals are the ones that serve hot apple cider. This is the perfect atmosphere that you can kick back and feel safe in. It’s a wonderful time.

Chop Down Your Own Tree

It sounds like a hassle, but it’s really not that bad. Sure, you can always shop for one, but that’s taking the easy way out. It’s a more thrilling experience to go out there and cut your own. The prices are usually cheaper since you’re the one doing all the work.

It doesn’t take too long if you start at the thin part of the base and use a saw or chainsaw. The best part is that you can impress your special someone as you cut it down.

Make a Homemade Gift

For us men, this is something we are used to literally running away from. While screaming… It’s not that we don’t want to do something nice, it’s just not something that comes naturally to most of us. Challenge yourself this holiday season to make at least one homemade gift for someone close to you.

Just think of some things that they like and have that be the theme. Making an ornament is a popular option. Google and Pinterest are your friends here!

Roast Chestnuts on an Open Fire

A lot of Americans have completely forgotten about chestnuts. That’s not good. Remind yourself of the tastiness of chestnuts by reserving the evening with your family to cook up a fire and do some roasting. If you want to mix it up, smores are impossible to forget.

Just pack enough ingredients. Keep in mind that your kids are going to have sticky fingers so having wet wipes available is a must. Another fun thing to do at this time is to sip hot chocolate.

Go on a Private Boat Tour

A private boat charter in Charleston, SC is a trending holiday option. It’s usually not something that comes to mind until now. The prices are good during this time and the sights are extra beautiful. Just remember to bundle up!

Boat tours are perfect for spending time with friends and family, creating a bonding experience between everyone. The memories last forever and you get tons of vitamin D as you enjoy your adventure. Also, being near water is proven to lower anxiety.

Go Ice Skating

Yes, you’ll probably look silly if you aren’t good at it. Maybe your feet will hurt a bit afterward. But who cares? It’s all for fun anyway. Whether it’s an indoor or outdoor rink, (preferably outdoor!), put on your blades and glide around the rink. Be impressed as your kids get the hang of it faster than you and start skating circles around you.

Watch Your Favorite Movie

There’s just something special about watching a movie that you’ve always loved. It’s nostalgic and brings back great feelings. So put on some pajamas (yes, you probably own some), pop some popcorn, grab some blankets, and cram together on the couch as a family as you start the movie.

Try not to get frustrated when everyone starts moving around, going to the bathroom, grabbing snacks, etc. Every family does this.

Build a Gingerbread House

There’s nothing quite like Christmas as the smell of gingerbread. This is the perfect time to unwind, drink some eggnog, and attempt to build a miniature house out of gingerbread. If you’re like me, you’ll end up eating most of the icing so the building quickly comes to an end. So try not to do that.

Final Thoughts

The holiday season shouldn’t be treated like any other time. This blog post hit on some of our top picks of things to do, with our favorite being going on a private boat tour. Private boat tours in Charleston, SC are best done through Charleston Yacht Tours.
