Christmas Shopping Made Easy with a Free Printable Gift List

Make Christmas shopping stress free with a free printable gift list.


Christmas shopping is one of the biggest sources of stress during the holiday season. You want to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list and stay within a budget you can afford. And when you add this to your already long Christmas to do list you might start to feel like a full fledged Grinch.

But I'm going to make a confession. Christmas shopping is actually my favorite part of the season. I love finding that perfect gift and knowing that I won't regret it when my January bills arrive. What's the secret to actually enjoying Christmas shopping this year? I make it easy by getting organized before I purchase a single present.

Ready to make a gift giving battle plan of your own to take the stress out of holiday shopping? Here's everything you need to get started.

Tips for easy Christmas shopping and a free printable gift list! #Christmasshopping #giftideas #Christmasplanning

Start with a Free Printable Gift List

The key to make Christmas shopping less stressful is having everything organized in one place. I've taken care of this for you with a free printable gift planning list. You can download yours by clicking the Get It Now button below.

This list is just one of the awesome holiday organizing tools in my printable Christmas Planner. Click here to check out the entire planner and get everything you need for a stress free holiday!



Once you've downloaded and printed your list, start by writing down everyone you would like to give a gift to this Christmas. Include your family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and even teachers.

Create a gift budget

Once the list is made, you need to decide how much you are able to spend for each person. You can do this right on your gift planner. You might want to start in pencil as you may need to make adjustments to be sure that your total is something you are comfortable with.

Buy or DIY

Once your budget is set,  it’s time to start thinking up gift ideas! Check out the Amazon Holiday Toy list for inspiration for the kids, or the Home Gift Guide for adults.

You may also decide that you want to make homemade gifts this year. This can be a great way to create meaningful gifts for relatives (Grandmas love homemade presents!) or to give to a group of coworkers or neighbors without going over budget. I love giving these cookies and cocoa jars to our neighbors and friends (and there's a free printable envelope too).

Shop online when you can 

I salute anyone who is brave enough to head out into the stores during the holiday season because the crowds are always nuts. I much prefer shopping online in my pjs with a glass of wine after the kids are in bed. And with Amazon Prime, you can get free 2 day shipping on tons of awesome gifts.

PS - if you're not a Prime member yet, you can get a free 30 day trial just in time for holiday shopping.
