We love Christmas here at Taskers of Accrington, and there’s no better way of celebrating the festive season with you family than by participating in some Christmas themed activities. Of course, you’ll probably have your own ideas about what makes for the ideal Christmas activity night, so these are a few supplementary ideas to help you fill out your Christmas itinerary.

A classic Christmas film

It’s fair to say that there’s no shortage of Christmas films out there for you to choose from, particularly with all the different streaming options available these days! For the most part, Christmas films are aimed specifically at families, so they’re a great choice when it comes to family film nights! So, get your family together on the living room, find some space on your exquisite designer sofa, pop on a festive film (we’d personally recommend Elf or The Polar Express!) and you’ll have the perfect way to spend a cold winter evening in the run-up to the big day!

Plus, if you need a new sofa to help you celebrate the festive season, you’re in the right place. Whatever your sofa style, we’ve got you covered. Our sofa collection includes on trend sofas from Alexander & JamesSITS and Tetrad. Contemporary leather styles from ROM and our own Taskers' Italian Collection.

Decorate of course!

Decorations are by far the number one feature that distinguish a home during the festive period, and turning your home into a Christmassy wonderland is a great way of getting everybody to express themselves during the festive period. There’s a lot to do - putting up the Christmas tree, hanging decorating your halls and putting up lights are all fairly time consuming jobs, so it’s probably best to delegate them out so you can get finished more quickly! What’s more, you can always check out our blog if you’re looking for a few tips on the best ways to decorate your home this Christmas.

Family games night

It’s not Christmas unless someone has thrown a tantrum after coming last in Monopoly. So, to honour this age old tradition, we had to include a family games night on our list. Board games like the aforementioned Monopoly, Cluedo and Trivial Pursuit are all staples of the Christmas games night, but nowadays there are plenty of console games out there which can offer up just as much fun for the whole family, so that you don’t have to restrict your games night to the dining room table. Consoles like the Nintendo Switch are perfect for family gatherings, and offer a wealth of different games to suit everyone (Mario Kart and Switch Sports are always safe bets).

So, those are our top three picks for the family activities we’re sure will bring everyone together during the festive season! What’s more, if you need some more exquisite furnishings to help you accommodate all the extra relatives you’re having over this Christmas, that’s where we can help.

Here at Taskers of Accrington, we have a wide range of stunning pieces for you to choose from, and we offer perhaps the most exciting home furnishing shopping experience in the North West.
