How To Be Organized In Giving Gifts This Holiday
If you're still stuck thinking about what to give for Christmas and juggling on other to-dos for the holidays, then here are some pretty helpful gift-wrapping organizing ideas for you to check out.
It's always helpful to declutter your mind so you can prioritize your tasks. Between running a household, doing side hustles and being there for our loved ones, we'd always love to free up our mind with some little space, right?
Here are some tips to keep your gift-giving run smoothly.
1. As early as now, make a list of everything that you need to accomplish like decorating, shopping, sending cards or baking. Set deadlines for each task and put them on your fridge's door so you can check it easily from time to time.
2. Make a list of people and the gifts you want to buy or end up buying for them. Keep it neatly filed after the holidays to avoid repeating gifts next year.
3. Do a quick inventory of your wrapping supplies like tape, paper, and bows to stock up and to avoid too much extras. Make a list and keep them handy with you.
4. Set up a dedicated gift-wrapping space with all your gift-wrapping supplies in there like paper, ribbon, tape, scissors, and tags.
5. For your household, you can post "wish lists" on the fridge for your kids to add while they think of stuff they really want for Christmas. Or if they have certain pictures in a catalog, have them circle or bookmark it with their names and place them in your gift-wrapping table/space.
6. If you're sending out Christmas cards, start gathering names and addresses of your recipients in a master address list. Keep it in a spreadsheet so you can easily update the addresses. Set a weekly or daily quota on the number of cards you want to get done and send out to avoid last-minute scrambling.
7. Once your Christmas card list is organized, you may opt to pick up stamps for an additional touch or print labels to make addressing your cards an easy task.
9. After wrapping your gifts, make sure to write the recipient's name on the bottom of the gifts to avoid confusion if in case the gift tag falls off. We surely don't want any mix-ups.
10. Make a list of extra people you want to buy for like your kids' teachers, coworkers, and bosses and place it in your wallet so you can easily refer back to it when you do your last trip of Christmas shopping.
Don't stress out yourself too much, 'kay? Have fun wrapping up those bundles of joy. Happy Holidays!
