Christmas is less than 4 months away?

Did you know that?

I'm all of a sudden on panic mode.

Hold on. Breathe. Breathe. BREATHE!!!

Let me explain. 

I start Christmas shopping on January 1st. Yes. I know, it's a bit ridiculous. But hey, I'm one of those people that don't like getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays. I'm usually done with all of my shopping before Thanksgiving. I am not a Black Friday kind of gal. I like knowing that after Thanksgiving dinner and clean up, my family will set up our Christmas tree {yes, it's fake} and watch a Christmas movie to kick off the season and I have no worries or stress coming.

But you guys, I don't have anything yet. I don't have one single solitary gift! I don't even have any ideas. I can probably come up with a million excuses, but none of them will really justify not having anything yet.

But never fear. I have found some great resources to get me back on track... I HOPE!

I love Bekah's stuff! This link takes you to all of her holiday organization printables. She has tons and they will be very helpful throughout any holiday!

I have to admit I'm a little old fashioned. My mama raised me to send thank you cards. I know a lot of people don't do this anymore, but I love receiving and giving them.

If you do too, here's an adorable printable for you.

When do you start your shopping? Are you a far in advance planner or a last minute shopper?


  1. Do you really send Thank You notes? I never even thought to do so for Christmas presents!

    1. I do! We don't live near family, so we do send them thank you cards. And they love receiving them! I missed one Christmas and my grandmother let me have it! :)
