My Little Best Plans for December in Madrid

We are approaching the end of the year… And yet we still have to face tons of dinners, lunches and crazy shopping... our goal this year is to stay calm and, instead of spending like crazy and getting very stressed, try the following activities that will make you enjoy the city and season:

First, do your Christmas shopping supporting small business. There is a nice initiative called 1Gift 1 Dream that can be also followed on twitter #1gift1dream. I know sometimes it is easier to just go to Corte Inglés, but helping young business will definitely make your presents more special. My own 1gift/1dream suggestions are: Sister Jane in Federica&Co, hand painted porcelain in Carmen Muñoz  and any item from Peseta .

If you don’t have much time, I suggest a Christmas popup for small brands called The Apartment and located in Alonso Martinez 2, 1st left, open during the whole Christmas period and with more than 40 small brands all very trendy and cool, no doubt you’ll find ideas for gifts.

Second, if you plan to attend different parties and still no idea what to wear, our recommendation is getting registered at La Mas Mona, a rental service for party dresses. There you will choose among the most well known Spanish designers and make affordable for one night the perfect outfit for celebration! I have already tried the service and I have to say that the result was very satisfactory!

And for the last day of the year... of course, don't  forget to run La San Silvestre Vallecana, the most fun run of the year, prepare a wig, a fancy dress to be ad-hoc with the rest of the runners. Don’t forget to get registered as soon as possible at: http://www.sansilvestrevallecana.com/ (be wise and do it the soonest, tickets fly!) 10 km to Vallecas will help you get the best shape after turrón. And why not offering the run ticket as a healthy Christmas gift??
