Winter Bucket List

Posted Dec 03, 2018

December is such a fun month filled with Christmas spirit, fun decorations and great get-togethers with family and friends. To help you make the most of this wonderful season we’ve put together the ultimate December bucket list! What’s even better is that Gotcha Covered has the perfect checklist paper to help you complete our Winter Wonderland bucket list!

  1. Take a drive through your neighborhood and look at all the lit up houses. This is a favorite during the holiday season. Go out, and find the neighborhood that goes all-out on decorations and lights.
  2. Have a holiday movie marathon. Take a night to watch all the Christmas classics!

                -   Elf

                -   Home Alone

                -   National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

                -   How The Grinch Stole Christmas

                -   The Polar Express

                -   The Holiday

  1. Build a snowman or make snow angels
  2. Go ice skating or sledding
  3. Make a DIY gift. This one’s options are endless! You could make anything from a watercolor planter for mom to a personalized notebook for your friends!
  4. Make homemade hot cocoa
  5. Create a Christmas playlist. Pick your favorite streaming website and add all your favorite holiday music to decorate the tree or bake cookies to!
  6. Volunteer your time

                -   Go caroling at local hospitals or retirement homes

                -   Help distribute food bank donations

                -   Contact your local United Way or Red Cross

                -   Visit VolunteerMatch to see other holiday volunteer opportunities near you!

  1. Bake Christmas cookies. This one is a fun way to spend the day with your family or friends. You can make cookies just for you, or extras to bring to loved ones.
  2. Organize a secret Santa or white elephant exchange with your friends and family.
  3. Build a gingerbread house.
  4. Donate to local toy drives. Have any old toys from your childhood or ones your kids don’t use anymore? Donate to your local Salvation Army, so those in need can get more affordable toys. Or, you can always donate brand new toys to the Salvation Army as well!
  5. Donate old, gently used coats, mittens or hats to your local Salvation Army or coat drive. You can visit One Warm Coat to see if there are any places for you to donate old coats!
  6. Do a random act of kindness. Make someone’s day by dropping off some of those cookies you made, shoveling their walkway or just stopping by to chat with an old friend!
