    1. Watch Home Alone.

    Paramount

    You don't need me to tell you what a gem this film is, but you may need me to remind you that it's currently streaming on Netflix in the UK. As someone who has already watched it twice this season, let me tell you this: Cosying up in your favourite Christmas jumper with a mug of mulled wine and this classic is just what the doctor ordered.

    Watch it here.

    2. Read A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

    If you're feeling the 2016 slump more than the Christmas spirit right now (and aren't we ALL), take a journey with Scrooge to rediscover some holiday cheer.

    Buy this stunning version including images of the original manuscripts here.

    Or listen to Audible's new (and free!) star-studded audio version here.

    3. Listen to this brilliant December playlist.
