The holidays are mainly celebrated with family, but what do you do if your family is not there because you are abroad for example? The following tips will help you on your way!

Second family

When you are abroad, it is especially important to make close friendships. These friends form almost a second family and that's how you treat them. Make plans to celebrate the holidays together. In particular, find out who just like you are celebrating the holidays without family and invite them.


A phone call can make a world of difference. So make sure you call your family to hear each other's voice, even if it is only for a few minutes. In addition, send a Christmas card or gift so that they also have something physical from you. No matter how dull it sounds, the smallest actions can mean the most to your family.

Treat yourself

Your family is not there to spoil you, but this does not mean that you do it have to do without presents. Buy something nice for yourself and make or buy delicacies. Unfortunately, the surprise is missing, but the advantage is that no one knows as well as you what you want!
