The ultimate guide to having the best Christmas in 2022

The holidays comes fast and furious in December, which is why we compiled this Christmas guide to help you navigate the festive season.

For ideas on feasting, we have dining options at luxury hotels, restaurant buffets and set menus, take-home roasts for large families, plus log cakes and other desserts to pull out after the turkey. If you have heaps of leftovers, check out recipes on how to transform them into delicious meals.

Christmas is also thirsty work, and you can have a drink at these bars and restaurants serving holiday cocktails, wine pairing menus, and boozy brunches. For presents, we have a gift guide to all things boozy, as well as festive gourmet hampers.

If you deck your halls with shiny balls and plastic wreaths, we have Christmas décor inspirations, plus tips on how to organise your home for the holidays. Then look equally cheery with festive nail art ideas, and advent calendars of sought-after beauty products.

We’ll be adding to this list as we countdown to the big day, so stay tuned.
