Ask your question

  • Avoid the hotel room as much as possible, just for showering and sleeping if possible



  • doN’t use a hotel – use an apartment perhaps (often not much more expensive). Or airbnb. Otherwise take something like a tent for them.



  • Great ideas here. I love the miniature Christmas tree and tinsel idea.



  • Good topic!Really interesting reading the comments to this!



  • Christmas carols and lots of love, hope you had a wonderful christmas with them



  • Lots of tinsel everywhere will bring out the Xmas spirit.



  • A small fibre optic tree and some Christmas music on your phone. A nice Christmas dinner out somewherewould also be a nice idea



  • what did you end up doing



  • there are some good comments here



  • We had a miniture fibre optic christmas tree. It was so pretty and really helped to make our hotel room festive.



  • thanks for the tips. we are travelling next christmas so it’s great to have these ideas. i have also been told some hotels will put up a tree (and perhaps decorate the room a bit) if you request it.



  • the felt tree is a great idea – and good advice too about making sure you have something planned for Christmas lunch/dinner.



  • Hope it all went well for you



  • a small xmas tree that folds up they are usually used as table centre pieces and often are fibre optic, but I would suggest organising dinner one year we stayed in canberra and no where was open so we ended up having microwave meals from a servo.



  • I saw something like what ‘tobysmummy’ was talking about in the Better Homes and Gardens’ magazine.
