Christmas Countdown

Christmas Balloon from Big Fat BalloonsBe organised and really enjoy Christmas this year

While the “official” countdown to Christmas starts on the 1st of December, most of us start thinking about and preparing for Christmas a little before (why else would restaurants and high street shops start touting their Christmas ranges while we’re all still slapping on the suncream!).

So we’ve put together this simple Christmas Countdown guide which will help you get organised, avoid stress and more importantly enjoy the countdown to Christmas!

Countdown - 1 to 2 months to Christmas

Do you want to avoid the worst of the Christmas crowds? And avoid the disappointment of finding out that the only toy they want this year has already sold out?

Well, now is your chance to get organised and enjoy stress free Christmas shopping. I would recommend that you try an old fashion list (after all Father Christmas himself has been using one for years!).

The following tips may help:

It might seem an obvious exercise, but it’s one that works really well (or at least it works for me!). It gets the thought process kick started and before you know it, you’ll see potential gifts for friends and family everywhere!

Once you have the ideas, the next bit is easy.  All you need to do is buy the gifts, wrap them and label them - ticking friends and relative’s names off your list as Christmas presents pile up in your closet!

You might also want to wrap up a few backup gifts – always good to have on hand if someone unexpectedly drops by with a gift for you!

Countdown - 4 weeks to Christmas

Countdown - 3 weeks to Christmas

Now is the time to get seriously organised – especially if you are hosting a Christmas party. This week:

Countdown - 2 weeks to Christmas

Countdown – 1 week to Christmas

Countdown – 1 day to Christmas

Christmas Day

Relax and stay calm if you’re cooking dinner, accept any help offered or ask family and friends to help out as needed – it’s time to enjoy yourself! All that’s left to say is Happy Christmas to you all!
