It used to happen every year; I’d end up with an extra gift for one of my kids, something I’d discover only as I was wrapping presents two days before Christmas. I’d either have to run out to the store and buy similar gifts for the other children or set the extra gifts aside.
It was a waste of time and money.
Until I started making a simple Christmas gift list on my computer. It was the most basic spreadsheet ever, but it did the job. I could list gift ideas and mark off when things had been purchased. It also allowed me to track how much I was spending, something rather scary but necessary.
I couldn’t believe what a difference that simple Christmas gift list made the first year I tried it. Not only was I far more organized, but I spent less too!
This year, I wanted to make a nicer version of my gift list – a printable Christmas gift list. And not just that, but a version I could use online too because that’s easier for me.
You might already do your own version of a Christmas gift list, but if it needs a little help with organizing or keeping everything in one place, you can download this FREE gift list here today.
We’ve made it easy for you with two free Christmas gift list options.
A free printable Christmas Gift List:
…if you’re brave enough to keep it hidden from your family!
Or (if you don’t want to risk a hard copy gift list because your family is bound to see it and you are likely to lose it… like me)…
Option 2: a free Christmas Gift List online spreadsheet:
Note: You must save a copy of this gift list before you can begin using it. You will not be able to edit or use it until you do this step.
To do this: Click on “File”, then “Make a copy” and save it. Open that copy and you can begin using your free Christmas gift list!
This Christmas gift list is a great way to keep all your shopping organized this year.
If you do shopping for others, you can make notes of that in the “Note” section.
My father always sends Christmas money for my children and I buy gifts for the kids from him. I love that this Christmas gift list makes it easy to note that. You can also include notes for gifts from Santa as well.
I hope you enjoy this free Christmas gift list as much as I do!
