December is already here and a lot of expats are staying in the UAE for year-end celebrations. We thought we would share these 5 tips to feel at home this winter in the UAE with the beauty of December and Christmas right at your door.

Do you get a pang of nostalgia when you think of spending the holidays in the UAE? Here are 5 tips to feel like home and not miss a chance to have a wonderful time in the UAE. Get inspired by our advice and share your ideas with us. Our Private Chefs are happy to create a special menu for all of your upcoming winter holiday occasions.

1. It is a good time for hot meals, even in the UAE. Opt for a soup at night and enjoy a healthy month at the same time. Our Private Chefs recommend starting the meals with different savoury soups each day, so no one gets bored.

2. Bake traditional cookies and sweets especially made during those celebrations reminding us of our childhood. Flavours and sweetness is what makes the winter so pleasant. Have a box of homemade Christmas cakes and let your young ones enjoy it while you can savour them with a nice cup of hot tea or coffee.

3. Even with a BBQ on your terrace, you can add a winter touch with a special menu for the occasion. Decorate your oranges with cloves (gives a very good perfume in the house as well), add a white napkin, candles, cones and other elements of December.

4. Be creative with Christmas decorations at home. Don’t hesitate to add lights and candles everywhere. How about some fake snow on the windows for your little ones? Finally, the one and only Christmas tree.

5. Be with your loved ones. This is the perfect time to gather with your family, friends, neighbours and even colleagues who are staying in town, away from their home and family as well.
