Christmas. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And most stressful. Figuring out where you’re going to spend the day, who’s cooking, remembering to send a card to that great aunt who you forgot last year but who hasn’t let you forget it over the last 12 months… Fortunately I’ve found something to help make Christmas a little bit easier. It’s not a huge wad of cash (soz) – it’s the Busy B Christmas planner!*
Now, you know I’m a sucker for stationery and don’t need any excuse for a new planner but this really is a must-buy. It helps you keep track of cards, gifts, meal planning and recipes, plus there’s enough space for five years! And all for the bargain price of £14.99. Plus look how pretty!
There’s a handy tear-off notes section on the inside cover, plus plenty of pockets for storing all of those magazine and catalogue pages with recipes to try and the top ten toys list.
The cards section features tick boxes so you can note when you’ve posted your cards and also helps you keep track of people who sent you one so you don’t forget them next year. There’s even space for addresses so you really can keep everything in one place.
Now, of course I’m not going to share my filled in gifts pages (you never know who’s reading!) but it’s definitely been the most helpful section so far. I’m awful for picking things up in sales and putting them aside for people and forgetting all about them, so it’s great to keep track of what I’ve already got, especially when I have so many family and friends birthdays in the few weeks either side of Christmas. You can also track gifts received and remind yourself to send a thank you note – so helpful when we spend hours opening Jenson’s presents from everyone.
I’ve got to admit, I didn’t think I’d get much use out of the food section as Luke is the cook in our house but it’s a great place to store all those recipes I want him to try and to keep track of what we need to get in before the big day.
Plus there’s a whole section just for planning – be still my heart! Page and pages for lists and check boxes. Hubba hubba!
Each section also has its own notes pages so that you can jot down any additional notes to yourself.
