Making Your Gift List!



How often have you scrambled at the last minute to finish your Christmas shopping? We’ve been there too, but we have perfected our Christmas list organization and shopping strategy… so OF COURSE we have to share it with you! Get ready to say “goodbye” to Christmas shopping stress for good!


STEP 1

Make a list of every person you are shopping for this year. Even down to dirty Santa presents, and co-worker happies.


Example

  • Mom

  • Dad

  • Sister

  • Husband

  • Co-Workers


Step 2

Okay, you have your list. Now it’s time to list the items you want to gift that person. The more specific the better!


Example

  • Mom- jewelry set, matching pajama sets

  • Dad- tool drawers

  • Sister- matching pajama sets, candles

  • Husband- sound bar, grilling accessories

  • Co-workers- candles

Step 3

This is usually where most people’s process ends, and that’s where the scrambling begins! Our solution? More specifics, please! Now it’s time to list where you plan to purchase each of these items.


Example

  • Mom-Jewelry Set- Kendra Scott

  • Mom-Pajama Sets- Kohl’s

  • Dad-Tool Drawers- Home Depot

  • Sister-Pajama Sets- Kohl’s

  • Sister-Candles- EKKO Candle Co.

  • Husband-Sound Bar-Best Buy

  • Husband-Grilling Accessories- Home Depot

  • Co-Workers-Candles- EKKO Candle Co.


Step 4

Now for the ultimate helpful tip. Once you know who you are shopping for, what you are getting, and where you are purchasing the gifts from; you can make individual shopping lists for each store!


Example

  • Kendra Scott- jewelry set for mom

  • Kohl’s- Pajama Sets for mom and sister

  • Home Depot- tool drawers for dad, and grilling accessories for husband

  • Ekko Candle Co.- candles for sister, and candles for co-workers

  • Best Buy- sound bar for husband


Step 5

Relax! By using this method you can tackle one store’s list at a time, and be finished with all of your shopping in a breeze. No need to check that list twice- you’re Christmas shopping just got a whole lot more organized!


Tools

For the pen and paper lover we always find beautiful notebooks at Paper Source and deals on upscale moleskin journals at Marshalls! Maybe technology is more your speed. We have found great success creating to do lists in apps like Todoist, Google Keep or simply using Notes on your phone.
