It’s almost Christmas, and it is the time of year we all feel a bit like Santa with all of our lists. They help us keep the perfect balance of everything that has to be done – not only the presents. It is all too easy to feel a bit overwhelmed. You might not realize how much a handy scrap of paper can serve you if you write everything down and make your list, it will help you find the time to do everything and more and prevent any last-minute meltdowns.
Plan an outfit ahead of time – make sure your look is on point but planning out exactly what you want to wear, it will help make sure everything is washed and ironed on time. Nobody likes the last minute realization that what you wanted to wear is still at the dry cleaners. Oh, and you for some sparkling outfit inspiration you should definitely check out our styling tips.
Make sure you have presents for everyone – there is nothing more awkward than forgetting about someone for Christmas. Make a list of family members, coworkers, friends, and whoever else has made an impact in your life over the year and be sure to find an appropriate gift for each of them. It's not about the monetary value or the size of the present, what really counts is its meaning and the fact that you thought about the person.
Send cards out - make a list of all those distant relatives you haven’t seen since you were six because we all know it isn’t possible to get everyone a present, but it is still nice to receive a card just to let you know someone is thinking about you. If you are struggling with the cards, consider that Christmas time goes until February, so you can send your cards a little late, don't worry.
Grocery shop – plan out what you are going to cook and go shopping before the 23rd to beat the crowds – and to avoid getting into any fights with people over the last of something. If you don't have your Christmas Supermarket done until now, my suggestion is to relax. After all, it's Christmas, peace and joy are the essential parts of the celebration!
