How we’re making this Christmas the most special one yet

We’re back together, and we’re ready to celebrate.

For almost two years, we’ve been separated from those we love and treasure the most.

With border restrictions finally easing and lockdowns being lifted, this holiday season is set to be one of the most special yet as we get back together.

And while being able to celebrate face-to-face is special in and of itself, it’s natural to want to make this Christmas that little extra bit memorable.

Here are some easy ways to ensure this year, no special moment goes unmissed.

Start a new tradition

Now is as good a time as any to start something new – plus, you can revisit it every year with fond memories of the first time the whole gang was reunited.

Serve up a signature cocktail on Christmas Eve (Back Together Bellini, anyone?) using fresh and seasonal ingredients, or put an unexpected twist on your usual Boxing Day ham recipe that will surprise and delight (and quickly become a Christmas favourite).

Even setting aside a special night for dinner and drinks with friends after months apart can become an unmissable event on everyone’s calendar every single year. Pop on some Christmas-themed gear to make things feel even more festive.

Gift a gift to be treasured forever

Gift-giving this year feels a little more meaningful – we’re all searching for that perfect gift that says, “I’m so glad we are together this year”.

Pandora’s newest collections are the perfect choice for those wanting to give a gift that can be cherished forever.

Pandora Moments reflects the magic of these special reunions, with celestial and star-inspired charms, earrings, bracelets and necklaces bringing a little extra shine and sparkle to gift-giving.

Or choose something from the Pandora Timeless collection, perfect for celebrating the holiday season with timeless elegance. Classic styles are paired with vibrant blue, green, and pink stones for truly stand-out statements.

Make time for memories

Being apart means we may have missed being there for a few big moments in our loved one’s lives this year – so these holidays, make sure there is time set aside for ‘catching up’.

Whether it’s a dedicated cocktail hour before Christmas dinner, or time to sit and relax with each other after the table has been cleared, make sure to check in with those you may not have been able to physically be with this year.

In all the rush of planning and preparing for the holiday season, it’s important to remember the real reason this time of year is so special: we (finally) get to celebrate together.
