Christmas is barely a month away and we have just the list for you! We give you a number of things that you should get started on, a month before Christmas. This will not only help you stay organized all through the month, but will also let you enjoy the festivities to the fullest.

1. Make a to-do list

First and foremost, make a list of all the things that form a part of the Christmas celebrations. Make sure you do not leave out stuff that may not seem as important. The more precise and specific you are while making this list, the easier your job will be. You can probably segregate things based on their priority and urgency level and divide your time accordingly. This will allow you to multi-task and make the most of this one month.

2. Make a gift-list

It is a very wise idea to beat the Christmas shopping rush and make the gift list well in advance. Take into account all the relatives, siblings, and most importantly your kids. It will do you a world of good if you finish your shopping by late November or early December. This way, you will be able to devote more time to picking up just the right gift for the right family member.

3. Get started with the Christmas cards

If you haven’t yet started working on the Christmas cards, then we suggest you get on with it as soon as possible. Start buying and writing the cards. Be ready with your mailing list and be clear about what messages you want to write for your loved ones. In case of military postings, make sure you send them by early December.

4. Start with the decorations

You need not put on all of your Christmas decorations a month in advance. However, it is a good idea to get started with them and keep adding to the decorations as the festival draws near. This way, you will feel less hassled about the decorations a week before Christmas and will be able to devote more time to the task. Also, the right kind of decoration requires a lot of creative thinking. Make sure you give yourself enough time for developing such a thought process.

5. Have a play-list ready

It is a good idea to have a CD, or an iPod playlist of all your favorite Christmas songs and carols. This may seem like a petty task but it will truly add to your Christmas cheer. You can have the playlist ready on the D-day and it can be used as background music for all the Christmas festivities!

6. Start planning the Christmas dinner

The Christmas dinner is going to be one of the main aspects of Xmas celebrations. In order to have that perfect meal, you must start with the prep in advance. Be ready with the menu and start gathering all the non-perishable items. Focus on recipes that can be frozen and taken out on Christmas eve. Make sure you buy all the necessary crockery, linen, and other dinner table essentials.
