December is the busiest month of the year. Whether you’re a marketer, a designer or a business owner, there are so many things to do before you go on holiday, from planning holiday marketing campaigns to completing all the piled-up tasks you had throughout the year.

In all this rush you may forget about things that make you happy. If you don’t have time during the week, try to free some time on weekends. Decorate a Christmas tree, make gingerbread cookies or write down a wishlist of things you’d like to get for Christmas. These things will bring you a festive mood and make December less intense.

To guide you through the most exciting things you can do before Christmas, we’ve created a list and a thematic collection with dozens of atmospheric and cozy visuals.
