I seriously do not know where this year has gone! I feel like I was just planning my goals for the new year, and suddenly it’s the holidays again. I had just started using a bullet journal last holiday season, so I didn’t use my journal for any holiday planning, but I’m excited to give it a go this year.
Let’s start with Thanksgiving! After I drew the layout below, I decided a 2 page spread would probably be better, but at least you get the gist of what I was going for and maybe it will give you an idea to adapt it into 2 pages so there’s more room to plan all that Thanksgiving yumminess!
Some other fun Thanksgiving spread ideas:
- Guest list
- Guest seating chart
- A cooking schedule
- Recipe list
- Thanksgiving baking list
There are so many details to plan around Christmas, you could probably have an entire Christmas planner!
Online Shopping Tracker
We’ve started to do most of our shopping online, so the first thing I thought of was an online shopping tracker. I find it’s easy to forget what I’ve purchased, so this is going to be very helpful, and hopefully keep me on budget too.
The 4 Gift Christmas Plan
If you need some guidance for your gift giving, I love the idea below. For each child, you buy something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to read.
My bullet journal friend, Claire Mack said her mom extended the rhyme to be something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read. Something to share, something for hair, something sweet, and something for feet. Isn’t that cute?
Christmas Gift List
Next, is a basic Christmas gift list with columns to track who the gift is for, the amount budgeted, the actual amount spent, the store or website where you purchased it. Then columns to check when it’s purchased, wrapped, and delivered.
I’ve always loved stocking stuffers, plus stockings are just fun to draw. I made mine a list of Bullet Journal stocking stuffers in case you need any ideas of some of the products I love and use in my bullet journal.
I didn’t have time to draw layouts for everything, so here are a few other fun (and useful) ideas:
- Christmas Card List
- Christmas Party Invite Tracker
- Christmas Party Guest List
- Christmas Budget Tracker
- Christmas Baking List
- Christmas Eve Planner
- Christmas Day Schedule
- Christmas Menu
- Christmas Craft Ideas
- Stocking Stuffers
- Secret Santa List
- The 12 Days of Christmas
