Tuesday Treats: Get a Jump on Christmas!

Christmas, Tuesday TreatsAmy WileyComment

I know, I know. It’s only September… September 25th… which means Christmas is just three months away! I love Christmas so much, and I do my best each year to set myself up for less stress and more enjoyment of the season. My trick? I try to do a little Christmas prep on the 25th of each month. That way I have less work in December and more time to just sit and enjoy looking at the tree and being with my family.

Here are a few things you can get now to both be prepared… and to keep yourself from missing out. The early bird gets the Christmas worm!

Dated Frame Ornaments

I love dated ornament frames because they are an easy way to add personal touches to your tree AND easily remember the dates year to year. These are excellent grandparent gifts as well if you add photos! Buy them now, because they tend to sell out.

Neiman-Marcus Annual Platter

I’ve shared the Neiman-Marcus annual platter before, because it’s one of the oldest tricks on my book. It’s the absolute perfect one-size-fits-all gift. It’s a great price, it comes beautifully boxed, and it can check that “has everything” person off your list.

Advent Calendars

Lego Advent Calendars are SUCH a treat and I love that they offer something besides candy each day. These go fast, too, in my experience. I love that their are versions perfect for my son and my daughter.

Personalized Gift Tags

Personalized gift tags add so much elegance to your gifts. Not to mention, they are a timesaver when you are trying to wrap that mound of presents! I love these letterpressed gift tags. Ordering now means you’ll have them in time to wrap gifts whenever you please.

Those are a few of the tricks I have up my sleeve… now back to Halloween preparations!
