Winter Bucket List

These kinds of posts have been around for a while, and I always enjoy reading them. So I’m finally going to be giving it a go! (By the way, I was looking on Pinterest for some inspiration for this list, but they’re all Christmas related. As someone who has a summer Christmas, this was of no use to me.)

Make some soup

Soup is seriously one of the best things to eat in winter. Warm, hearty soup. Pumpkin is my absolute favourite. I have bought some from the store the other day, but I also like making it myself.

Try lots of bath bombs

I’ve already talked about my fondness for bath bombs and hot baths, so I had to put this in. I haven’t set a specific number because I know I’ll probably go over whichever one I set. I do want to try lots of different ones though.

Finish at least 2 books

I’ve been quite bad with reading lately. I intended to read on holiday, but I was more caught up in exploring, even on the planes and trains. Since it’s colder outside, there’s more incentive to curl up inside with a good book.

Complete a few jigsaw puzzles

Like with reading the books, I enjoy completing puzzles. I can get caught up binge watching tv shows and blogging, so it would be nice to do some activities where I’m not looking a screen.

Complete a cross stitch kit

I’m now just listing my favourite indoor activities, but I haven’t completed a cross stitch in years! Like with jigsaws and reading, I find it relaxing.

Go to the movies

We rarely go to the movies nowadays, but it’s definitely a fun indoor activity to do!

Right, that’s probably enough. I do want to actually try complete this by the end of winter. So in September, I’ll come back to this list and hopefully I will have done them all! Winter seems like a good time to start trying to finish all my crafts and indoor activities I like to spend time on!

What do you guys like to do in winter?


Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. I love the movies but rarely go. I also need to read more. The soup looks yummy๐Ÿ˜Š x

    1. Me too! It’s quite expensive going to the movies often, so we only save it for movies we really want to see ๐Ÿ˜„

  2. I haven’t been to the cinema in a bit, always love going there xx

    1. Me too! It’s always a nice treat ๐Ÿค—

  3. I want to do some jigsaws too, I’ve got 6 waiting in the wings but I’m scared the cat will hide the pieces or play with them ๐Ÿ˜› good luck with all of these!

    1. Oh no haha! That definitely sounds like something a cat would do! Thanks Chanelle ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Your bucket list sounds SO cozy! I love it! I hope you have an amazing Winter beauty! <3

    1. I’m definitely aiming for a cozy winter indoors haha! Thanks Kate <3

  5. When I saw the title of your post I was so confused and then I recalled that you live in the southern hemisphere. Also if you are interested in making bathbombs, I wrote a post on how to make one: Awesome post!

    1. Haha, I always do that with all of you guys in the Northern Hemisphere! Ooh, that sounds really neat! I’ll definitely check it out ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. I will have a bath regardless of the weather, but I do love having them in winter. I also love making soup and it feels like winter is a completely acceptable time to just chill and eat cookies or just cuddle up inside.

    1. I’ve gotten into really hot baths, and when I did that in summer it just became a sauna (Which I didn’t really enjoy haha). It’s extra cozy having them in winter. I definitely agree that with it being so cold outside, it’s more acceptable for me to spend all my time inside chilling out ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Ahhh these are some great activities for Winter!! It’s so cool to try different bath bombs xx

    1. Thanks Amelia! I always love spending time indoors, especially if it’s horrible outside haha!

      1. It’s okay and haha me too xx

  8. These are good winter activities. I still want to do puzzles but no space and lots of tiny pieces and my son might lose them.
    Also, I didnโ€™t know you knew cross stitch. Thatโ€™s so rare, my auntie taught me when I was young but it wasnโ€™t a hobby I pursued lol.

    1. I love doing puzzles, we had no space in our last flat for me to do it.
      I love cross stitching! I just find it so relaxing. I love doing it while having something on the tv for noise ๐Ÿ™‚
