Organising your gifts
Keeping your Christmas shopping organised can be a huge task, especially if there are a lot of people that you need to buy for. Keep on top of this by making a list that you can keep handy, and crossing off a name whenever you buy their gift. It helps if you have an idea of what you’re buying for each person, as you can add the item to the list as well as a list of shops or sites that you’re likely to find it on in order to make things easier for you.
