I don't think I need to point out that Christmas is creeping up on us. I absolutely love the festive period because it is full of quality time with the kids doing lots of baking, crafts and watching cheesy Christmas movies! But I think part of the reason I enjoy myself so much is that I am Little Miss Organised and almost always on top of my Christmas related activities, so I don't stress about getting everything done and creating the perfect holiday. I say "almost" because I was certainly not so chilled out the year we did our kitchen; noone is chilled out when they have nowhere to cook a week before Christmas and there is building debris all over the house.
To help my less organised bloggy friends stay in control over December I have a whole lotta Christmas printables lined up for this month, and to make sure you don't miss out here is what my Thursday blog schedule looks like for the next few weeks:
Today - Christmas Planner (part 1)
15 November - Christmas Planner (part 2)
22 November - Letter to Santa printables
29 November - Reindeer food and Santa cookie printables
So hit that follow or bookmark button and don't forget to pop back for your freebies!
And as promised, here are the first three printables from my Christmas planner:
Perpetual December Calendar
If you laminate this printable and use dry erase pens you can use this calendar to keep track of your festive activities year after year!
Christmas Card List
Christmas Gift List
Be organised about your gift giving! I've shared gift planners in the past, but this one has been re-done to coordinate with my Christmas Planner and has a useful new column so you can remember where the presents are hidden - just keep this list out of the kid's sight!
Next week I'll be sharing three more printables to add to the Christmas Planner. All of my downloads are free for personal use, but I'm always eternally grateful to anyone who gives me thanks, a follow or spreads the word about my blog in return for using the printables!
***edit: second lot of Christmas Planner printables now available to download!***
