Now that the weather is finally starting to turn a bit cooler, I am finally getting my head around the fact that it is Christmas is in a few weeks. And what better way to prepare for the upcoming festivities than with a shiny new printable Christmas planner?
You can still get the 2013 Christmas planner here, but I am loving my new version. I am big on printables which are pretty but don't eat up half your printer ink! Here is what is included...
Because every planner needs a fancy cover.
#2 Gift Planner
One of the parts of Christmas which needs the most planning is the gift giving. This page helps you to plan what you are purchasing your family and friends.
#3 Budget Planner
Christmas doesn't have to cost a lot to be special but, let's face it, many of us like to blow the budget on making the occasion memorable. You can use this to keep track of your spending (whether it is gifts, food or entertainment), so you don't end up spending more than you intended.
#4 December Calendar (Perpetual)
I think most households are busy in December, with all of the parties and school nativity plays. Having a calendar to keep track of it all is essential! You could print off a separate one for each family member.
#5 Christmas Meal Planner
In many families, Christmas dinner is a a traditional roast. Somehow all of the extra trimmings and the extra large turkey means that it needs to be planned with military precision! This page helps to plan what you are serving and your timings.
#6 Christmas Card List
Writing holiday cards tends to be something which you either love or loathe! This sheet will help to keep you organized so that the process is quicker and easier, whichever camp you fall into.
#7 Festive Baking
For me, one of the most magical parts of Christmas is the build up rather than the big day. I really love creating a festive themed bucket list for the kids (and for myself!). I have created a blank bucket list for baking...
#8 Holiday Crafts
#9 Christmas Activities
...and holiday activities.
#10 Family Traditions
It can be fun to introduce new traditions which make the holiday season special for your family - but it can also be quite difficult to remember every tradition once you've created a few. This page should help jog your memory!
It can be very tempting to buy sparkly new decorations in the run up to December, but often you find you had too much already once you get the box of ornaments down from the attic. This ornament inventory will help remind you what you've got and where you stored it.
And for the rest of your holiday needs there is this page! Print out lots and put them in the back of your Christmas planner.
I hope that this planner helps you to have a stress free, organized holiday season.
