The Cure For Holiday Insanity Is Here! Introducing The Holiday Planning Playbook

We’ve all been there, haven’t we?

  • You space off the treats for the class party
  • You fight the last-minute crowds at the mall
  • You fail to send Christmas cards for yet another year
  • You have zero idea what to buy your brother-in-law
  • Guests arrive tomorrow and your house is disaster
  • You can’t find time to decorate your home like you want
  • You run out of time for those festive family activities you swore you’d do this year

It’s crazy how the holiday season becomes such a blur every year! You run nonstop from one thing to the next and before you know it, it’s January and you’re just trying to catch our breath. You realize you never got a chance to do half of the festive things you’d thought about. Taking the kids ice skating, shopping with your girlfriend, baking sugar cookies on a Saturday…

Aren’t the holidays supposed to be a time to make memories, relax and remember the reason for the season?

So, what are you doing wrong?

Well, this is going to sound so obvious but the key to a less stressful holiday is having a plan. Getting all of those important dates and gift idea and guest lists and little details onto paper will do a lot to ease the stress of the holiday season.

I am SO incredibly excited to officially launch the Holiday Planning Playbook! This holiday/Christmas planner gives you one place to keep track of alllll of those holiday-related details so you can spend less time stressing and more time enjoying the holiday season.


The Holiday Planning Playbook is a collection of 60+ planning pages to help you organize everything holiday-related.

Before I get into the specific sections of the Holiday Planning Playbook, let me give you a general overview!

I decided to go with non-traditional Christmas colors and create something fresh and fun. There are two cover pages and binder spines to choose from, one general Holiday and the other Christmas.

The colors and design of the cover are continued on the internal pages. I like to keep a lot of white space on printables so you have plenty of room to write and plan, plus it saves a bit on ink. But I still added some fun color to give you a pretty place to keep track of everything for the holidays.


This holiday planner / Christmas planner is organized into 10 sections:

  1. Gift Giving
  2. Memory Making
  3. Party Planning & Hosting
  4. Scheduling
  5. Meal Planning & Baking
  6. Budgeting
  7. Traveling
  8. Decorating
  9. Decluttering & Cleaning
  10. Extra Planning Pages

All of the pages in each section have a cute holiday icon on the top so they coordinate and are easily organized into the appropriate sections.

One of the reasons I love digital download products like this is that it gives you tons of flexibility. Rather than me shipping you a bound workbook, you can pick and choose the specific pages you need and only print those. Plus, there are many pages in this collection that may warrant multiple copies.

You’ll receive a print release with purchase so you can print the Holiday Planning Playbook at any copy center or office supply store (I usually use Staples or Office Depot). Or if you have a nice color printer at home, that works, too!

This holiday planner / Christmas planner is completely undated, meaning you can reprint it year after year. You’ll have to fill the calendar pages in with the dates, but I chose to leave them undated so this holiday planner is never out-of-date. The last thing I want to do is make you buy a new copy every year!

I won’t go into detail about every single page included (that would be a novel!), but let me show you a few of my favorite pages really quick!

I would be so honored if you would take a second to take a peek at all of the details of the Holiday Planning Playbook. It has truly been a labor of love to pull it all together for you and I know it can help you finish 2018 feeling more organized.
