Is it just me, or does everyone plan gifts in advance? Not every gift is planned out; every so often I come across something that I just have to get for someone. But I love my gift tracker pages! It comes in so handy for planning when I need to get the nephews’ gift cards or the mother-in-law’s scarf. Not to mention how wonderful it is during the holiday season. Especially if you tend to buy gifts throughout the year, it’s terrific for keeping up with what you’ve already bought. You can also take advantage of sales when they happen throughout the year and just mark down what you’ve stashed away. (Erin Condren seasonal surprise boxes, Paper Me Pretty stationery subscription, and Current Catalog card sets, I’m looking at you!) Whether you are planning for birthdays at any time during the year or the holiday season specifically, the whole process is so much easier when you plan ahead!
Within the first five pages of my planner, I always include these Year at a Glance and Year in Color pages.
- The Year in Color is a great way to track your moods throughout the year.
