6 weeks until Christmas!
It's now a month and a half until Santa comes to town. End of year school celebrations are beginning which means everyone is getting into the swing of the Christmas countdown.
This week we're focusing on gifts: wrapping, gift tags, posting and also thinking about overnight guests.
This week's Christmas countdown tasks are:
TUESDAY 42 sleeps until Christmas: create your own free printable gift tags.
Save time and money and print these free printable gift tags. Save them to file and never run out of Christmas tags again.
WEDNESDAY 41 sleeps until Christmas: begin wrapping your gifts.
If you haven't already, begin wrapping the gifts you've already bought. Nothing puts you in the spirit more than having a pile of wrapped gifts ready to go.
THURSDAY 40 sleeps until Christmas: calculate when you will need to post gifts.
Check the Australia Post postage calculator to work out when you will need to post your Christmas parcels by and then add plenty of extra time to be safe. Most overseas parcels will take a minimum of 5 to 10 business days and domestic parcels will take a minimum of 5 to 7 business days.
FRIDAY 39 sleeps until Christmas: plan to do some Christmas baking.
Plan what you might like to bake this Christmas and buy the ingredients now so you can bake when the desire strikes.
SATURDAY 38 sleeps until Christmas: prepare for overnight guests.
If you're expecting to have guests stay over Christmas, prepare for them now. Arrange linens, something to read, toiletries and anything else you think they'll need now.
SUNDAY 37 sleeps until Christmas: buy gifts for teachers, coaches, neighbours...
Don't forget to add to your gift list people like teachers, coaches, neighbours, bus drivers, the postman and anyone else you’d like to thank for the way they’ve made your life easier this year.
MONDAY 36 sleeps until Christmas: plan school holiday activities.
Will you need to find activities for your kids during the school holidays? Make arrangements now before places are booked out.
And, altogether, this week's tasks on a checklist because we love to tick!
