Although Christmas is a memorable time full of love and joy, it can also be extremely stressful. If you are hosting the family Christmas lunch at your house, it can be far from relaxing. There’s a lot to think about: what to buy, when to get the turkey in the oven, and when to serve up the meal. It’s hard not to feel pressured when you want the day to run smoothly. 

But why not take some of the pressure off early? You can kick back and relax knowing you have everything under control if you are organised and order your festive food in advance!

Ask for help

One way to take some of the stress out of Christmas is by asking your family and friends to help out on the big day. Ask them to bring along a dish, course or some alcohol to pitch in. It also pays to ask a trusted family member to arrive early to help you set up, or to stay back to help you clean – every bit helps!

Stick to a schedule

On the day, try to have a schedule mapped out so everything runs smoothly. Know when you need to cook the food for, when it needs to go in the oven and when you plan to eat each course.


You can never be too organised at Christmas! And one of the best ways to begin organising is by pre-ordering your Christmas food today.
