Christmas is a time to relax, eat and enjoy the company of loved ones. While it’s the most wonderful time of the year, the festive season can also be one of the most stressful!
There’s the pressure of Christmas shopping, extra expenses, cooking and entertaining for loved ones…all of which can make it difficult to unwind. Consider the below tips that will help alleviate stress and ensure you can see the merry in Merry Christmas!
1. Make a list (and check it twice)
When you’re ready to tackle your Christmas shopping, be sure that you are heading to the shops with purpose! Make a list of who you are buying for and presents you have in mind for them so you aren’t wandering around aimlessly.

2. Same time and order online
If you haven’t found the presents you need, consider buying online or shopping with retailers that offer click and collect. Click and collect will allow you to avoid the masses and browse online for exactly what you need before picking up your purchase.
The same goes for Christmas food and desserts. If you have Christmas events coming up and no time to bake extravagant desserts, Michel’s have a scrumptious range of cakes available for online ordering that will make for a gorgeous addition to any festive feast. Browse our site for a show-stopping cake and pick up at a time and store that is convenient.
3. Take some time out for you
The best of us can need a break from what can often be classified as the chaos of Christmas. Even shopping for family and friends can be a taxing ordeal. Why not take some time out from shopping and recharge in store with some Michel’s favourites and an award-winning coffee? Or, add a little cheer to your day with our mouth-watering Christmas Shortbreads, Frappés and Petit Tortes.
Enjoy the season and Joyeux Noël from Michel’s!
