Please note there is no Christmas task on Monday as I am travelling away for my Nan-in-law’s funeral and time has got the better of me this week. Please use Monday as a catch-up day.
During the Christmas Countdown Checklists series I will give you tasks 2do each weekday, to help you prepare, plan and be organised for the upcoming silly season and Christmas Day. These tasks will help you to find time to write Christmas cards, create your Christmas budget, plan your Christmas cooking and so much more.
This series is published on the blog, free for you to following along. You can subscribe to my emails to receive an email from me each morning, where I will share a link to the latest Christmas blog post, so you don’t miss any of the Christmas Countdown tasks! Find subscribe form here.
Usually, there is so much to plan and organise for Christmas. Make this Christmas calm and stress free by doing a few simple tasks each day to help you keep on top of the holiday madness. View all previous tasks here.
Today’s Christmas Countdown Checklists Tasks are:
1. Plan gifts for kids school friends
Do your kids give gifts to their friends before school finishes? If so start thinking about what gifts to give. Our favourite gift for the kids school friends has been Reindeer Noses Treat Bags. Read how to make them here.
I recently designed some new Christmas Bag Toppers, they are all so super cute! My Christmas Bag Toppers are an instant download, so you can purchase, download, print and start creating within minutes.

The 1st December is next week, so start planning to get your advent calendar ready. I will share some advent activities with you next week.

Santa has many helpers who make the Christmas season fun. His elves visits the home of some children to help manage Santa’s naughty and nice list. Each morning the elf is found in a different place to watch over the kids through the day, he usually get’s up to some mischief during the night. I have created The Elf Planner which includes one month of fun elf antics, see more details below.
