2022 Christmas Trends plus Christmas Planner Reviews

 For the 2022 Christmas season, we are going to see some fun trends that will inspire a whole new generation of people who love Christmas!  These trends are youthful and fun, some sophisticated, and some traditional. Let's get started.

Christmas Trends

1.  Coastal Love

This one has been around for a long while, but there is a good reason for that: it is timeless, beautiful, and inspirational.  Look for the color schemes of milk and cream, chocolate and sand, metallics, and the best ocean blues.  Evidence that this is trending for this year is the Hallmark ornament I ordered for our wedding anniversary!

2.   Botanicals

Botanicals have been everywhere so it is no surprise to see them show up in Christmas decor.  What might this look like?   Evergreen spheres with twinkle lights in bowls, bayberry leaf wreaths,  boxwood wreaths with no adornments, simple olive and bay leaf garlands with white lights.  Expect to see some botanical leaf ornaments and for a DIY, consider making a concrete leaf bowl for pretty ornaments for your table or gift giving!

3.   Neons

When you think of neons for Christmas, think of funky and retro, or even the bright bright world of gaming!  Let those colors be your inspiration!  Look for old-fashioned neon lighting, hot pinks and turquoise blues, and bright orange, and let your imagination take you away!  Look at this darling tree found at Walmart!

 4. Professional Lighting

Create unique holiday lighting decor by using professionals like Blingle.  Professional lighting can distinguish your home from the others by creating lighting that highlights the unique features of your home, such as gables or doorways.  Using professionals to install the lighting is the safest way, too.  They know their way around a ladder!

Hopefully, these Christmas trends will inspire you to think outside of the box a little bit, or even refresh your existing, traditional ornaments.  Have fun making a concrete bowl for yourself or even a little gift-giving!

Christmas Planners

Every year I reach out to some of my favorite Etsy shops to see what might be available to you in the world of planners.  Two shops were excited to share their planners with you and to offer you a discount code for ordering one!  Read on to see which one will help you with planning your perfect Christmas this year.

1.  Christmas Planner #1.  

This planner is an extensive planner for Christmas.  It is a printable, instantly downloadable planner that you can have immediately!  This planner is from the Etsy shop of PlannerMomCompany and she describes her planner like this:

If you’re a person who is struggling with feeling overwhelmed and unprepared for the holidays ahead, then our printable holiday planner is going to make your day! Designed with busy individuals in mind, it contains all areas of Christmas planning in one spot and organizes your days, weeks, and months for you (because we know that sometimes the stress of planning for a holiday can take out the joy that it’s supposed to bring).

Perfect for busy women, this Christmas planner is both detailed and fun to ensure that you don’t miss a beat (or gift!) while still enjoying the holiday season even while planning.
