Let DealDash Blog Help Plan Your Christmas Party



Christmas is coming next week. Have you finished planning your Christmas party yet? Read on for some tips from DealDash.

Christmas time is rapidly approaching and you may just find yourself in charge of a family Christmas party. Never fear though, as putting together a party like this is really a lot simpler then one would think. Here are a few tips to get you set on the right path, from DealDash.

Hurry, Invite Your Guests

Make sure that you let everyone know about the party as soon as possible. If you are short on time consider social media or email to tell your family about the party. This way you are giving people enough time to make arrangements to get to the party. You also want to make sure that you have a defined time for the party so family members know when the party starts and ends.  Gone are the days of using paper invitations. You can call, email, text, or even send an Evite. 

Planning the Meal

When planning for food, keep it as simple as possible. You can easily plan for finger foods to keep everyone happy during the party. If you are planning a big meal consider asking people to bring a dish to share.

Always make sure you take into account family member that might have food allergies when planning your Christmas party meal. You also might want to make sure that there is something to eat for any vegetarians in the family, or if anyone eats gluten-free. If there are any allergies or picky eaters in the family you don’t have to plan your menu specifically around them, but be sure that there are at least a few things that they will be able to eat.

Activities for Everyone

Make sure you have activities planned that appropriate for all ages. You need to be sure that every family member, no matter what their age, can participate in the activity if they want to do so. You can plan a couple of fun party games like wrapping a bunch of small gift in plastic wrap and watch everyone try to unwrap it. There are countless other party game ideas on the internet.

Other activities you might want to consider are watching a classic Christmas movie, caroling around the Christmas tree, or baking cookies together. Be sure to have a few board games out so that people can keep themselves entertained while you are busy with the other preparations.

Decorations Everywhere

Decorations really don’t have to be anything too complicated. In fact, just how you would normally decorate your home for Christmas is just fine for your family Christmas party. That will save you a good deal of time a stress in planning the party. Even if you don’t have a Christmas tree, no problem! A string of lights here or there, a wreath, or a couple of Christmas stockings will be just fine.

DealDash Home, Garden, and Tools Winter Grilling Tips


No matter where you live you can grill year-round. It might be chilly, but here are some tips from DealDash to get you started.

Who says you can’t enjoy freshly grilled foods only in the warmer months of the year? It is actually possible to enjoy delicious grilled foods any time of the year, even in winter. Here are some tips to keep in mind when you want to take advantage of grilling in the winter, from DealDash.

Firstly, you’re going to need a grill. Happily, DealDash has a selection of grills for you to choose from in the Home, Garden, and Tools category. If you’d like to visit the Home, Garden, and Tools category, simply click on this link right here and you’ll be transported.

Heat it Up Early

After getting your grill from the Home, Garden, and Tools category, you are going to want to make sure that you heat your grill up early. Much earlier than you would if you were to be using it in the summer. Since it is cold outside it will take the grill longer to heat up to be able to properly cook something. You also want to be sure that you have plenty of fuel available to cook everything that you want to prepare. You don’t want to start cooking with just a small amount of gas left in your canister.

Don’t Forget About Safety

You are also going to be sure to practice extra safety precautions when you are grilling in in the winter. For example, keeping a bucket of water nearby can be a lifesaver should a fire break out while you are grilling. Also be sure that you have something available to clear any snow off your grill cover before and during the time that you are preparing food. You should check the DealDash Home, Garden, and Tools category for a grill cover, snow brush, and grilling tools.

Stop Opening the Cover!

Never over-check your food while you taking advantage of winter grilling. Opening your grill up too much in the winter time can cause the temperature to drop quickly causing your food not to be cooked at the proper temperature. Only check your food when absolutely needed so that you avoid this from happening to your food.

Thanks for Reading the Blog

Keeping all of these tips in mind will assist you in having the best time with winter grilling. This way you will be able to enjoy preparing fresh and healthy grilled meals even in the colder winter months. So be sure to keep your grill in the best possible spot for use all year round.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Finland, DealDash decided to donate all proceeds from auction wins paid on December 6th, 2017. Many of you paid for your auction wins on that date, and thanks to all of you we were able to collect $9,819.44 for the donation!

DealDash has offices in Helsinki, Finland, and Minnesota, USA, and wants to contribute to the local communities. That is why, on special occasions, DealDash donates the final auction sales prices to various charities, that are important locally, both in the US and Finland. For example, on September 10th 2017, DealDash donated $8,900 to the American Red Cross relief fund to help people affected by hurricane Irma.

We appreciate the help of everyone who took part and helped us support the Mannerheim League for Child Welfare.
