Create a light basic menu
The era of tables full of dishes is over, and minimalism is gaining more and more ground, respectively, to make your mission easier, you should choose the style of the party and adjust the menu. For example, if you have a barbecue party, opt for sausages, delicious burgers, accompanied by a Coleslaw salad or potatoes au gratin with cheese.

In addition, you will test your skills as a chef and you will be able to enjoy the holiday you organize.
And the last detail: don't forget to choose fresh products. These are the basic guarantee of culinary success, or your guests will feel the difference.

WHAT TO GIVE YOUR CHILDREN FOR CHRISTMAS
On a special occasion, adults try to please children not only with things, but also with sweets, filling Santa Claus bags with gingerbread cookies, sweets, chocolates, nuts and other delicious delicacies. For kids, this holiday is as important as a birthday.
Giving gifts to children for Christmas, mom and dad try to fulfill their secret or explicit dreams. If a child wants to ride a bike as a gift, most likely he will see it under the tree on Christmas Eve, or more likely the morning after it.
But what happens when children dream of receiving an expensive gadget as a gift, or a flight to the moon? Of course, there are options when a loving father and mother take out a loan to please the child.
Consider alternatives that are more affordable if your budget is tight. But if a powerful computer or graphic tablet is needed for a teenager's studies, the development of his talents, then perhaps this is a good way out and the child will receive the perfect Christmas present.
And instead of a flight into space, a performance arranged for a child will be a worthy gift. A play, objects symbolizing a dream, a helmet or jumpsuit like astronauts, a painting with a lunar landscape are good ideas. Even courses for training an astronaut are fine too.
Some more good ideas for Christmas gifts for children:
Figured chocolate. What happens if you combine a funny character or a wonderful thing with your favorite chocolate? That's right, a sea of delight!
Be sure that receiving a huge chocolate bar for the holiday will be a bright event for a child of any age and even for an adult with a sweet tooth.
Neokub. A set of magnetic balls that funnily roll, push off or magnetise, creating a huge layer for experiments.
A great souvenir for a crumb for New Year and Christmas. Various forms are created from them, which are then calmly destroyed, while a person enjoys pleasant tactile sensations.
Mechanical piggy bank. A box from which a cat's paw crawls out and pulls in a coin, placed on a special podium.
A mesmerizing thing will make a person of any age laugh, especially a younger one, because this nimble paw is so interesting to watch! In addition, it is useful for children to acquire the skill of preserving numerous coins or tokens.
Alarm clock with a target. Truly a universal item for a baby, teenager or adult "owls"! This little thing is an alarm clock, from which the target crawls out during the call. To close it and turn off the alarm, you need to hit the target with a laser pistol.
And some models allow you to activate the game mode and shoot with pleasure.
GIFT FOR PARENTS
When you are looking for something to give your parents for a holiday, you rarely find a suitable option right away. Mom and Dad put a lot of energy and love in their children and I want to find perfect gifts for them.
A gift can be both shared for the older family, and separately for the father and mother.
Painting. It doesn't matter the origin of the canvas, whether you purchased it, painted it yourself or ordered it from an experienced artist, the main thing is to choose the canvas so that the parents would like the plot and performance.
Pay attention to the style of painting or graphics you are purchasing. A couple more obligatory points: the size of the painting must fit into the dimensions of the apartment and fit the interior.
Collector's edition of the book. There is nothing better than a book in the genre preferred by mom or dad. You probably know which books your parents will love.
Spiritual book Traditional gifts for believers - The Bible is what is customary to give on a religious holiday.
Hanging chairs or bean bag chairs. A necessary thing for those who do not mind, sometimes relaxing while reading a book or watching a movie, or maybe arrange a cozy afternoon nap.
Comfortable upholstered furniture will help parents feel care, comfort and convenience through personal experience.
Paired mugs are a budget present for parents, both original and useful in everyday life. Place a box under the tree - a fabulous Santa brings gifts on Christmas night without forgetting anyone.
Miniature (1-2 cm) golden mouse and spoon. They attract wealth and prosperity. A mouse as a symbol of thrifty, and a spoon implies the presence of food on the table, i.e. satiety.

Thanks to the present, you will laugh together, and socks will not become superfluous in your wardrobe.
Non-standard periodic table. A useful little thing for bartender friends. Instead of the usual cells with the names of the elements, the table is filled with various names of spirits, cocktails and snacks. And sometimes the contents of the cells are hidden from the recipient until he erases the protective layer with a coin or something similar.
The “Swiss Flashlight” is the best for friends who love adventure or hiking. What gift to choose for a friend if he has a lot of these things?
