A few little things to remember at Christmas – and a quick peek at the forthcoming Spring!

The run-up to Christmas is a busy time for us at Swift Hire! We have been busy taking bookings since last Spring for the big occasion – and for New Year too, but there are always the last minute requirements to be fitted in – often where people have been sadly let down at the last moment. If we can help, we will – it is the season of goodwill and we love to join in!

Apart from Seasonal bookings, we also have to plan ahead with our clients and we have been receiving enquiries for Spring weddings and Summer Balls! It is good to be able to think of next summer when the skies are grey and the air is chilled, makes us think that the Winter is not so bad! We have exciting developments regarding beautiful colour co-ordinating table linen and this has brightened the eye of a few of our brides-to be: more of this new product next time.

Christmas is almost here, and everyone is shopping like mad. However, when the 25th December does arrive, will you prepared for any emergencies? No one likes to think about anything horrible happening, but there are things you can do to stave off problems in advance.  Here we offer a few little tips to make the Celebrations go without a hitch:

  1. Make sure you have a stand-by present (or two!) for the person you forgot – or who may turn up unexpectedly. If you can keep a couple of vouchers tucked away (book vouchers or Amazon, for example), they come in handy – and if you don’t give them away you can spend them later!
  2. Get some DVDs and music to keep people entertained on Christmas Day after the presents have been opened and the meal eaten. A brisk walk after lunch is always good – or perhaps have some games handy which will keep the festive mood going.
  3. Make sure your insurance policies are up to date, to cover you in the event you are burgled (thieves work over the Christmas period, it’s their busiest time of year!)  You may want to consider emergency boiler cover, especially if your boiler is old. There is nothing worse than being without warmth at Christmas, just because your boiler has given up the ghost!
  4. Have some entertainment planned for Boxing Day – often a day which leaves people feeling flat. Board games are useful for whiling away some time and can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
  5. Buy more food than you think you need, even if you are worried it will go to waste. Usually, little is left over anyway – and most can go in the freezer. Keep an emergency supply of Satsuma, chocolates and biscuits hidden away (and some extra bottles of wine too!), for those unexpected guests or as little treats for everyone.


Whatever you plan to do over the Festive Season, we wish you a happy and peaceful Christmas.

From all the team at Swift Hire.
