As joyful as the holiday season can be, it’s equally chaotic and just plain crazy! Don’t let the holidays take control of you this year, YOU TAKE CONTROL OF THE HOLIDAYS. To help you do this, I’ve created this free holiday planner for a more organized Christmas. I’ll say it for you, “You’re welcome!”
How is it possible that it is December already? I don’t know about you, but I have literally been running around like a chicken with my head cut off since before Thanksgiving. I have so much I want to accomplish before Christmas but the time keeps ticking away.
This isn’t the first time I’ve been in this situation and it definitely won’t be the last! I’ve learned that the only way to get it all done is to formulate a game plan and tackle my priorities one task at a time.
In an attempt to make things easier on myself, and to help out my fellow reader, I have put together this Free Holiday Planner created to help us ALL accomplish a more organized Christmas.
Aren’t you excited! Want to know what’s inside this FREE Holiday Planner?
- Holiday Gift Organizer
Please tell me that I’m not the only one who gets overwhelmed with gift buying over the holidays! There are so many people to buy for and so much to keep track of. What size in clothes are the nieces and nephews wearing now? Who do I need to ship presents to? Are there any gift ideas I have for my son? What’s my budget?
This Holiday Gift Organizer will keep all of your gift-giving needs on one sheet and maintain your sanity! This has truly been a lifesaver for me the last couple of weeks.
2. Holiday Gift Tags
Looking for a cute way to embellish your gifts? These Holiday Gift Tags are a perfect choice! I will be adding these tags to all my handmade gifts and cookie platters this year to give that personal touch. With four different designs, I’m sure you’ll find something to suit your needs. Just print them on card stock and you’re all set!
3. Christmas Guest List
Use this printable to create and manage your guest list for Christmas dinner. Keep track of who’s coming and what everyone is bringing.
4. Christmas Menu
This printable is perfect to organize your holiday meal. With added space for your grocery list, putting together your Christmas meal will be a breeze. Don’t forget to take into account what your guests are bringing when making your menu!
5. Christmas Recipes
Ever find the perfect recipe and can’t remember where you found it? Maybe it was in a cookbook, a magazine or on Pinterest. With this printable, you will be able to keep track of exactly where you found that amazing recipe. It will come in handy when the holiday hustle and bustle really kicks in.
6. Christmas Make-Ahead Items
One of my biggest entertaining tips of all time is to make as much food as you can in advance when it comes to your menu. This is especially important on a holiday like Christmas when you know the day is going to be action-packed. You’ll want to do as much as you can ahead of time so you can actually enjoy Christmas Day. Use this printable to keep track of your menu items that can be prepared ahead of time plus any final steps you might have to do to finish it off on Christmas Day. If you are looking for recipes to make, here are two of my personal favorite side dishes that can be made ahead of time: Twice Baked Potato Casserole and Sweet Potato Casserole.
7. Christmas To-Do List
This final printable is the perfect place to keep track of everything you want and need to do this holiday season! Every year I have all these great ideas to do things like bake cookies, watch Christmas movies, create handmade gifts, and much more. Unfortunately, time just gets away from me. December ends and I have barely done half of the things I set out to do. Bah humbug! Not this year though. This year I am prioritizing my Christmas To-Do list and getting things done!
It’s no secret that the holidays are a very busy and stressful time. Take control and ENJOY yourself this Holiday Season. My goal with this Free Holiday Planner is to create a more organized Christmas for you and me. So come join me! Happy Holidays!
