Christmas 2020 – One To Remember?

by Tefal Team on 01 December 2020
  • It’s been a year we’ll never forget and this Christmas is sure to be departure from the norm. But what will be different and how can we make the most of it? We take a look…

  • An early surge in online shopping this year means some of us already have gifting sorted. Don’t fret if that’s not you, the usual hustle and bustle of the high street may be on hold but many shops will still be open to help out last minute dashers.

    Looking for pressie ideas for the foodie in your life? Here are our top picks.

  • Home for the holidays

    Gatherings are limited this year so there will be a pause to the usual great festive getaway. With most of us spending Christmas at home instead of away, it’s the excuse we need to go all out with decorations and home comforts to bring some much-needed cheer.

    So after giving the house a winter clean, get inspired to go big with Christmas 2020 decorating trends, bake festive goodies and earmark cracking TV specials to veg out to.

  • Zooming into parties

    Pre-2020 most of us had never heard of Zoom or taken part in a virtual gathering. Now we’re pros at online quiz night and accustomed to seeing friends and family from the shoulders up.

    As your virtual Christmas plans gather pace, prepare by swatting up on seasonal trivia, get your party outfits sorted and choose a festive background to impress.

  • Twist on festive traditions

    Has Covid put paid to panto plans? Oh no it hasn’t! This year revellers can enjoy panto fun from the comfort of their cars as well as online performances and some live shows (rules permitting).

    Nativity plays and door-to-door carolling have been given the green light, while socially distanced carol concerts and Christmas Eve midnight mass are also being streamed this December.

    You’ll be relieved to hear that Santa’s got his virtual act together and taken the grotto online – hurray! Probably best to still leave out sherry and a mince pie on the night though 😉

  • Serve up something different

    With smaller turkeys expected to be in short supply, this could be the year to do things differently. Try a new centrepiece by grilling up bravette steaks, making fish the dish with a whole roasted salmon or going veggie with these squash and chestnut cracker-shaped pies.

    Why not shake things up and discover a new way of cooking the classics too? ActiFry your way to a delicious turkey meatloaf and roasties, scrumptious Brussels sprouts and moreish honey-roasted parsnips. And let’s not forget fabulous slow cooker mulled wine.

    It might not look quite like the Christmas that we’re used to but there’s still plenty of yuletide cheer to make it one to remember. Ho ho ho to that!
