I am committing myself to an organized, on-budget and stress free Christmas this year - and to do it, I've designed the ULTIMATE Printable Christmas/Holiday Planner! It's a complete package with 18 planning and tracking pages for keeping on top of every last detail. From a Master Budget Sheet to an Online Order Tracker; from Individual Gift Planners to Party Planners - this set has it all + more! What I also love about this planner - is NEXT year, I can peak back and see exactly what I did, who got what, how much I spent, etc... awesome, right?!

ADDING TEXT PRIOR TO PRINTING: Adding text to your PDF before printing is easy! If you have the most current version of Adobe Reader, you can use the "comment" function to insert text boxes where desired. Or, look around online for a free PDF Editor (there are lots)! Simply upload the file, use their tools to insert your text, then download and print!
SUGGESTIONS FOR USE: To make your planner perfect for your needs, I suggest previewing each of the pages included. Then, decide which and how many pages of each you will need. For example - the "Individual Gift Planner" is designed for tracking the gifts for one person. You may need one for each child + others that you do more comprehensive gifting for. The "Family Gift Planner" is another one you may want multiple of. It's use is perfect for tracking the gifts for one family... for example - I could use one sheet for my brother's family and another for my sister's family - or another for a Secret Santa Family. If you are a Grandparent, you could print one for each of your children's families. Or, you may not need this page at all and can omit. Another page you may need extra of is the "Christmas Card List". You might need to print one - or maybe you need ten! By taking a few extra minutes and thinking through how many you'll need of each page, you can make your planner ideal for you during the entire holiday season.
PRINTING OPTIONS: These pages are all designed in color - HOWEVER, if you prefer black/white printing... simply choose the "Print Grayscale" option when your "Print Properties" box pops up prior to printing. Each page is formatted and designed for 8x5x11 printing - HOWEVER, if you'd prefer creating a half size version - you can print "2 per Page" by choosing "Print Scaling" in your Print Properties. Assembling half-sized pages for your planner may take extra care and printing know-how, but it can be done if desired. You can also consult with your local print/copy store for additional options. Finally... don't forget to use your "double-sided" printing option!
BINDING/FINISHING OPTIONS: Once printed, you might simply just use your pages loosely as needed. You can also 3-hole punch and store in regular binder. Or... for more of a concise "planner" type notebook, you can have it bound at your local copy shop. One last tip... after printing my covers, I laminated them before binding to increase overall durability.
NEED SOMETHING SMALLER? This file is designed for 8.5x11 printing... however, it can be resized by a knowledgeable copy clerk to half sheets or by using advanced "booklet printing" options at home. For BEST RESULTS when shrinking, please consult with your local copy store. Please also note, when resizing to half size or booklet format, the top and bottom will have large margin space. Consider trimming to 7"x5.5" for optimal function. Please keep in mind that this file isn't optimally designed for printing this size, but it can be done. I cannot offer individual guidance or troubleshooting for printing other than it's intended 8.5"x11" size.
