5 Ways to Stay Connected During the Holidays

The joy of the holidays is all about spending time with the ones you love. And this year is no different. A little distance can’t put a damper on the spirit of the season, especially when you pull out all the stops to keep everyone connected. 

Bake Memories 

Put together a care package with your favorite cookie recipe ingredients (don’t forget the sprinkles!), festive kitchen towels, and holiday wine glasses. Make a date to bake and sip over Facetime--you can even mail your treats to each other for taste-testing. The best part is it doesn’t even matter if your cookies turn out--what you’re really making are memories anyway. 

Deck Your Trees Together

Half the fun of decorating the tree is discussing and deciding which ornament goes where. Assemble your elves on Zoom, then take turns choosing --and reminiscing about-- your ornaments while you decorate your trees together. 

You can even surprise them ahead of time with a cocoa care package! A merry mug set, gourmet cocoa mixes, handcrafted marshmallows, and a special ornament to hang on their tree is a sweet way to commemorate your time together.  

Bring the Kids to Disney

Need to swap out your travel plans this year? No problem. Immerse yourself in DisneyMagicMoments and you can cruise around Radiator Springs Racers, learn how to draw a princess, even set sail on the Pirates of the Caribbean! To get one step closer to the Magic Kingdom, whip up a recipe inspired by Grey Stuff, a Disney park favorite treat. 

Awaken Their Memories

The holidays are filled with familiar scents that awaken our nostalgic memories. Send the gift of fond holiday moments you usually spend together like cutting down a Christmas tree, or baking holiday desserts.  

Send a Hug

When you can’t wrap your arms around them (yet), send your love with a cozy and warm holiday blanket to curl up in and a family holiday book or a comforting feel-good novel.
