Holiday Trends To Look Out For This Season
The holidays are a perfect opportunity to spend time with friends and family. Whether it’s with a mountain of gifts or a feast of food, the holidays tend to be a time where people go a little over budget to find the perfect gifts for the ones they love. However, due to the pandemic and socially distancing from the ones we love, the latest holiday festivities weren’t very exciting for many. Being with the people we usually spend the holidays with was hard. Spending money was also difficult, especially for those who lost their jobs. With vaccines and safer protocols in place this year, we are going to see more exciting holiday trends and celebrations than ever before to make up for the hardships many faced the year prior.
So, what can you expect during the holly jolly season this year? Definitely bigger gatherings that’s for sure! Here are Madison Park Greetings’ 3 Holiday Trends to think about as you walk into the spirit of Christmas:
Budget cuts and not seeing loved ones really put a damper on the holidays last year. This year, people are trying not to go over budget. With that being said, people are gifting more thoughtful gifts like things their recipients actually need or things to help them relax during the holiday season. The importance of mental health has definitely increased now more than ever before. We have a newfound appreciation for simple pleasures, family and friends. People are gifting more experiences than physical gifts and shopping with more intention. We’re more eager to celebrate with the ones we love by seeing a show, watching a movie and going out to a nice dinner, rather than gifting items people won’t use.
Eat, Drink & Be Merry.
Inside Greeting: “May the Simple Joys of the Season Be Yours”
To make up for the small, quiet gatherings of last year, people are celebrating with bigger, bolder, and more dramatic décor. This year, it’s go big or go home! We can also expect to see more greenery and items that give off that holiday sense of smell, such as pine and cedar, and natural elements like woven baskets.
Joy, Merry, Fa La La
Inside Greeting: “Happy Christmas”
Because of shipping delays and shortages, people are shopping earlier than usual. They are sending their Christmas cards in November and shopping locally before popular items are out of stock. With Cyber deals happening earlier and earlier, stores have made it easier and more affordable to take part in shopping with a budget in mind. Luckily, curbside and pickup-in-store will remain in effect, making it easy and safe to continue our holiday shopping.
Have a Cup of Cheer
Inside Greeting: “Wishing you a warm and toasty Christmas!”
