1. Simmer Pots
One of the easiest and least expensive ways to make your house smell like Christmas is to start a simmer pot. Fill a pan with a little water, then add aromatic items such a cinnamon sticks, apple slices, orange or lemon peels, pine or fir branches, vanilla, cloves, bay leaves, nutmeg or anise. Create your own unique mixture, or buy a ready-made version. The only drawback is that it occupies a burner and might be in the way if you’re cooking. If this becomes a problem, try simmering your concoction in a fondue pot.
