Planning for Christmas Although Christmas may still seem a ways off, beginning of fall is actually the perfect time to start getting ready for the holiday season. Remember how fast the first part of the year flew by? Time will only start to go by faster leading up to the holidays. Start planning for Christmas now, and you’ll make things a lot easier on yourself in the long run. Here are a few tips to help you get ready. Tackle a few tasks each week. Begin by breaking the work of the holidays into several small steps. By doing a few chores each week, you’ll be ready in advance and able to enjoy the season without the stress of “so much to do and so little time.” Start working on gift ideas. Think about what to give to everyone on your list. If you get stuck, try checking online gift guides, or simply ask the person what’s on their list for Santa. By knowing what you’re shopping for in advance, you’ll save valuable time. Shop online to avoid the holiday rush. By starting early and shop from home, you’ll allow time for gifts to be delivered. You’ll avoid spending time traveling to and from stores, and also be able to stick to a budget more easily. Plan your holiday gatherings. Invite friends and families for holiday parties early. Find out about any potential date conflicts so you can plan around them. And start creating your holiday menus, including recipes you can prepare ahead of time. Get your holiday lighting up early. The sooner you schedule the installation of your holiday lighting and décor, the more time you’ll have to enjoy it while it’s up.
