Twelve Weeks of Creative Christmas: Free Planning Printables

It's the first week of our Twelve Week's of Creative Christmas mini-series! We are absolutely not ready for Christmas in any way, shape, or form. Are you?  Since this is the beginning of our mini-series, we thought we'd start by sharing some free printables to help get things organised and on track for the upcoming festivities.


The printable set includes a general-purpose holiday check list printable that can be used for groceries, presents, or any other festive to-do lists. The holiday helper printable can be used to plan your gift list and keep track of what has been bought, wrapped, and sent/given.  The happy holidays printable can be used to plan acts of kindness for the festive season.  We always have great intentions, but things can get so busy this time of year!  Use this list to keep you on track, whether its dropping off a charitable donation, scheduling volunteer time, making time to visit an elderly neighbour or friend, or any other of a million different ways to spread joy this holiday season. If you have wee ones, there is also matching letter to Santa stationary and a naughty to nice list.  If the elves are always watching around your place in the lead up to the holidays, this list can be used by you (or the elves!) to note naughtiness, but still keep it positively oriented and in the spirit of the season. After apologies and amends are made, extra acts of kindness and good can be undertaken to "make-up" for any (hopefully) occasional not-so-nice behaviours.


Free Christmas Holiday Planning Printables {{CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD}}

Note: The printables been uploaded for sharing via Dropbox as PDF files. Simply click the link above to view and download. They are A4 (our local default), so please fit to page if you are using a different size such as standard letter, or you can print multiple pages to any size of paper for smaller copies. Only print the pages you want to use, and (if not kept as mementos) remember to recycle when you're finished. Enjoy!

These printables are free for your personal / non-commercial use as a little present from us to you.  It's absolutely not required, but it would be awesome and greatly appreciated if you followed Creativity Unmasked via Bloglovin' and/or social media, if you're not already following the fun.  We welcome social media shares and linking with love, but please link to this post, not the download direct. Thanks! :)
