Christmas in July 2023 is finally upon us, and we couldn’t be anymore excited. For those who are unfamiliar, it’s a tradition that seeks to recapture the magic of Christmas at the midway point of the year. It’s also becoming especially popular for Australians because it finally allows us to experience Christmas in the winter. Many of the common festive tropes unfortunately don’t apply to us in the blistering summer heat; snowmen, images of Santa trudging through the snow, and huddling by the fireplace with your loved ones.
The seasonal reversal means that Xmas in July grants us the chance to partake in traditional tropes that our friends in the northern hemisphere closely associate with Christmas. Whether you plan to celebrate Christmas in July 2023 in the office, or with family or friends through dinner, here are the best Christmas in July ideas to help you get festive this winter.
Christmas has a special place in everyone’s hearts for a variety of reasons, but most importantly because it's a holiday that fosters unity. It’s an occasion where families and friends can finally take a breather after a busy year to come together to enjoy one another’s company. As such, there’s no better way to organise a fun gathering than to throw a Christmas in July party.
When organising a Christmas in July 2023 lunch at the office or a dinner party with friends, encourage attendees to wear some ugly Christmas sweaters! Promote participation and creativity by offering a prize to the individual with the most outlandish and festive outfit. Need an easy prize? See our range of Gift Hampers that everyone will love.
Furthermore, we Aussies have become accustomed to celebrating Christmas in our own peculiar way - barbecues, pavlova, and beach days. Forget all that. Now’s a chance to put on the heaters, and enjoy a Christmas lunch or dinner with all the classic dishes commonly associated with the holiday - roast turkeys, fruit puddings, and gingerbread. It’s your chance to get festive in a winter setting.
Decorations are an important part of Christmas, and this is no different for its sister holiday. Christmas in July decorations will help set your party apart from just a standard get together.
Foster team building and camaraderie by assigning office Christmas decorations to different team members, making it a collaborative effort for the ultimate team lunch event. To add some extra excitement, you can even organise a competition for the best and most festive desk decorations.
Don’t be afraid to bring out the old Christmas tree, and sport it with your favourite ornaments; garlands, tinsel, baubles, and who can forget Christmas Flowers? We offer festive flowers for as little as $54.95. Deck the halls with an extravagant Gold Preserved Christmas Wreath, or spruce up your table settings with our lovely festive-themed vase arrangements. Best part is that we offer quick, same day deliveries for all online orders across Sydney suburbs. Our flower delivery Sydney service runs every day of the week so it’s never an inconvenient time to get into the Christmas in July spirit.
Another hallmark of the holiday is the reciprocation of some fun gifts. If you’re hosting a Christmas in July party at the office, why not organise a secret santa event? This is an easy yet effective way to get into the festive spirit, and build rapport amongst teammates. Think gifts under $50 or gifts under $25, and encourage humorous presents to add a touch of laughter to your Christmas in July 2023 lunch!
Looking to send clients or family some classic Christmas in July presents? You can’t go wrong with Gift Hampers. They are a great gift idea for people who are tough to shop for. This is because hampers commonly feature an eclectic assortment of treats, which ensures that there is bound to be something that pleases the recipient. For instance, our range of gift hampers feature wine, sweet treats, beauty and care products, potted plants, and beautiful flowers.
Make Christmas in July 2023 one to remember!
