Ok, it’s November, we can officially talk about Christmas now.
Whether you’re excited for Christmas or not, you have to admit, there is a lot of stuff to get done for the season. Gifts, cards, food, decoration, events, etc.,
So a Christmas planner is a fairly important tool, and after designing all my inserts and setting it up, I decided I would share the inserts in case they would be useful for anyone else.
If you haven’t seen it and you are interested, you can watch my Christmas planner set up video here. You can see the Christmas inserts in more depth and I explain why I made them that way.
So, onto the printables! They are all PDF files, if you have any trouble with that, pop me an email and I might be able to send you another format.
As I said in the video, they are all made for a personal size planner, but if you have the technical know-how, I’m quite happy for you to resize them if you use a different planner. Just please don’t ask me to do this for you!
They’re made to print onto A4 paper, so once printed you need to do a little bit of cutting/trimming. There are very faint grey lines around the inserts themselves so you know where to cut. To print them double sided, you need to choose the ‘flip on the short edge’ setting. It should be pretty obvious which edge of each insert is the one to punch holes into, but if in doubt, refer to the pictures I’ve provided.
If you have any problems with printing, feel free to email me, but I am by no means an technical expert, so I may not be able to help!
Right, let’s get to it!
November and December Calendar Pages:
This is a three page document, the first two pages should be the ones printed double sided. The first page of November and last of December will be single sided.
‘Busy Days’ Pages:
For the days in December when you just have a LOT to do! There are two files for this one, one is for double sided, and one is a single page for the ‘end’ inserts, so that they don’t start and end on the wrong sides!
Busy Day Pages with named days:
Not a necessity, but within my ‘busy days’ section I wanted specific inserts that said Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day.
Notes and To Do:
The ‘To Do’ insert may well be my favourite; it’s the Christmas Pudding checklist, I just love it!
Christmas Card Tracker:
There’s two options here, one (pictured) is for those who make their own cards, the other is for those who prefer to buy their own (it says ‘written’ in place of ‘made’). The first PDF is the ‘made’ inserts, the second is the ‘written’ ones.
Possibly the most important insert! Especially when it comes to wrapping time and you’ve got a huge pile of gifts and are thinking to yourself ‘which of these is for which person?!’ And to keep an eye on how much you’re spending!
Also, in case it’s not clear, the person’s name goes on the red line!
I’ve designed these so you can write a recipe or menu on one side, and a shopping list on the other. Very simple but that’s how I like it!
For those that haven’t watched the video, all my other Christmas planning related things this year, budgeting, shopping, that kind of thing, are all being done on notepaper. My set up last year had all that kind of thing but I found it a little rigid and didn’t end up using it properly. I’m the type of person that just likes to spill ink all over a blank page.
Just a couple of boring things to finish (a.k.a..=, covering my backside)…
These free printable downloads are solely intended for personal use, and are not to be copied, redistributed, or sold in any way.
The images in the inserts are all my own artwork, so please do not copy, or distribute them. Additionally do not remove them from the original files. Changing the inserts to suit your size planner is fine but using the images for any other purpose is not.
I take no responsibility for anything that may happen to your computer, tablet, printer, printer paper, scissors, paper trimmer, any other object, item, or living creature, or life in general, after downloading and printing these inserts.
If you do use the inserts and share them on any form of social media, please either tag me or link back to this blog. Even if you resize them, they are still my original work. Plus I’d love to see what you do with them!
Ok that’s enough serious stuff. Sorry about that, you know how it is these days!
Thanks so much for reading. Again, any issues you have with downloading or printing please feel free to email me, and I’ll do my best to help.
