Christmas Gift Reminder

Every year I try to remember what I got each of my family members and friends for Christmas the year before. No one wants to spend hours standing in a store trying to guess between shirts and sweaters or Elmo and Doc Mcstuffins. The worse part of not remembering what you gave the previous year is repeating the same gift or even regifting back to the original gift-er.

I have combined all my left over boxes, random sized wrapping paper and ornaments into one large tote. On the inside lid, I tapped the Gift List. On the list, I wrote all the names of family and friends that received gifts and the gifts that I gave them. I often have to mail gifts to people around the country. Make sure to make a mark if that gift needs to be mailed. It will help with shopping.

If you were apart of a gift exchange, don't forget to write the group down and the gift you gave. You might be able to use the same gift for a different gift exchange next year. I have family members with birthdays near Christmas, I try to buy double gifts while everything is on sale. My reminder is placed to that name on the list.

When you pull this tote out around Thanksgiving next year, you will already have your shopping list. Leave space for any new friends and family members you might gain throughout the year.

Enjoy!
