How to Make Your Cabin or Hotel Room More Festive Over Christmas

I have spent many Christmas’s away on a cruise ship and most of those years I was working onboard and even worked on Christmas day!

So I found it hard to get in the Christmas spirit. But, to get me in the mood I decorated my cabin so it was full of Christmas cheer!

This is why I decided to share how to make where ever you are whether it be your cabin, hotel room, or where ever that is not home, more festive with these little decorations.

Bear in mind that some cruise lines and hotels may have regulations to what decorations you can use, so check first before you start burning candles!

Advent Calendar

I love an advent calendar! Who doesn’t love a small piece of chocolate every morning? Or maybe you just love little beauty gifts everyday! An advent calendar will get you in the Christmasy mood! The Lindt Bear Advent Calendar and  Amazon Beauty Advent Calendar are both great fun.

Christmas Candles or Diffuser

Make where you are smell like Christmas! I love Yankee Candle’s in Sparkling Cinnamon as they smell just like Christmas. But if candles are not allowed in your room this Yankee Candle Sparkling Cinnamon Reed Diffuser is the same smell without the burning!

Stockings

Christmas is not Christmas without a stocking! One these with dress up your room or even get a pre-filled one to open on Christmas morning!

Chocolate

This is my favourite part of Christmas! As it is Christmas we can eat what we like! Just get your own box of choccies!

Fairy Lights

Brighten up the room with fairy lights. Use traditional plug-in or use battery-powered.

Small Christmas Tree

A small Christmas tree is a nice touch and now you can even get a Fibre Optic Christmas Tree  to light up the cabin or hotel room or opt for traditional pre-decorated tree like this Small Christmas Desk Tree.

  1. We love to bring some Christmas-y art for the door, and hang a couple of ornaments from the mail box outside the door. Inside, some of those fun ‘gummy’ (aren’t I descriptive?) stickers on the mirror.

  2. Thanks for this post. These tips are pretty cool! I never thought of decorating my hotel room for a holiday. But why not? I would imagine hotels on solid ground would have regulations about candles as well.

  3. Aww this is a lovely idea! I bought advent calendars when we were living in a hostel, everyone laughed at us but I’m pretty sure they were secretly jealous! Didn’t buy any other decorations, although we did raid the cupboard and found most of a Christmas tree to put up lol. I also handed out little packages with candy canes, little chocolate Santas and chocolate coins to all the long-termers. 🙂

  6. Love this idea! I know a lot of us travelers tend to be away from home during the holidays and can usually result in a little bit of homesickness, so making your current place feel a little bit more festival is a great way to lift the mood!

  7. Love the idea of traveling with some fairy lights and a small Christmas tree! I’ve stayed in a few hotels over the feative season which actually have little decorations in the room, and it always makes me smile. Something small but it goes a long way to lifting your spirits and getting into the festive atmosphere!

  8. Around Christmas, we have a competition for Christmas Decoration. The idea is to see whose decoration of their workspace is best. At the end of the day, the office is transformed into a fairyland. This time I will take a leaf or two from your post and I am sure I will rock.
