Christmas is actually the most wonderful time of the year – if only the holidays weren’t so hectic. You can avoid this stress by taking a highly organised approach to the festive season. We have compiled some tips and tricks for you that will help you get through your to-do list in a smart way.

Take the stress out of hosting – with the Nuki Smart Lock

If you have friends and family visiting over the Christmas period, you know the challenge: Some of them want to take a walk, others want to go to the Christmas markets – and there’s always one who has to stay home and unlock the door for the other. Of course, you could give out several spare keys. But there is also an even simpler solution: This is where our digital door lock comes in – the Nuki Smart Lock 3.0. Send access permissions to your guests with ease using the Nuki app. This lets them easily lock and unlock your front door with the app. Or you can simply assign an individual access code for your Nuki Keypad. This way, your guests can come and go without a smartphone. You can find out here why the Nuki Smart Lock is not only very practical, but also completely secure.

Plan gifts from A to Z

With large families, gift planning can end in chaos. Luckily, there are apps that will help you with this task – for example, “Santa’s Bag.” With this app, you have an overview of who is getting a gift from you and what the budget is per person. You can also share this list with others. There is also a fun Christmas countdown – so no more last-minute purchases.

Stress-free parcel deliveries

This year in particular, online shopping is quite a relaxed affair. Things only start getting stressful when you miss a delivery and you have to go back to the pick-up station. With the electronic door lock from Nuki, you save yourself this stress, because you can open the door for the mail carrier while you’re out and about. If you live in an apartment, you can also use the Nuki Opener to open the main entrance door of your building for the delivery service. This means you won’t find any more yellow pick-up slips in your mailbox. You can read more about the advantages of in-home delivery here.

Tree decorations made smart

When it comes to decorating trees, every country has different traditions. Christmas trees are often decorated with candles. Candlelight is very atmospheric, but can also be dangerous. Delicate, electric fairy lights, such as those from Philips, are a smart alternative. When combined with the Philips Hue Bridge, you can even control the Philips Hue LED Band LightStrip Plus remotely. Do you have an extra-long day at the office? Tell your loved ones at home that you’ll turn on the Christmas lights as soon as you’re on your way home. This way, the joy is twice as great when the lights come on.

The Nuki Christmas playlist

Is there anything better than getting the whole family together and enjoying the smells of biscuits, fir branches and good food. There’s only one thing missing: Christmas music. We’ve got something very special for you – we’ve put together a Nuki Christmas playlist on Spotify with the Nuki staff’s favourite songs. The whole thing gets really convenient if you build a smart routine out of it: For example, you can set Alexa to automatically play the Christmas playlist on the holidays as soon as you come home.

We wish you and your loved ones a festive season – with Nuki.
