It’s never too early (or late) to start getting ready for Christmas in my opinion. But, if you really want to have a smooth and relaxing holiday, there’s some things that are better done in advance. That’s why I made this FREE printable Christmas prep checklist!

It has all the basics you need to get done, and a rough timeline of when they can be completed. Print it out, hang it on your fridge or bulletin board, and relax this holiday season knowing you didn’t forget anything.

I’m a checklist person, so I actually created this list for myself to get ready for the holidays. I hope you find it as useful as I have! It always feels like I’m forgetting something around the holidays, especially with kids and out of town guests adding to the hustle and bustle.

How I Use the Checklist

When I start getting ready for Christmas (usually in September or October), I print out my checklist. That way I can keep an eye on what needs to be done well in advance, like setting a budget, doing the Christmas card photos, etc.

In fact, I’m already looking for Christmas ideas and it’s still summertime!

I like having a printable checklist because it helps remind me of the things I always forget each year. Little stuff, like mailing my gifts on time, can sometimes creep up. With this list it’s clear what I need to prioritize each week!
