It will help me be organised and less stressed plus I can save money at an expensive time of year. Absolutely would recommend. In fact I have already told a few friends about it. Such a great product. Brilliant product that really helps a busy mum plan a great Christmas for her family!! I love it. I was surprised at how much I loved this product. I’m usually very stressed around this time of year with work and trying to get organised but I don’t feel stressed as it’s all written down and my husband knows what needs to be done when so is more able to help this year.
Such a beautiful book! It is really well made and has a robust cover to it. The pages are of a great thickness too knowing that you can write on them without the pen going through to the other side. I really love the concept to the planner. It seems to have everything covered from the run up to the main day and then also afterwards. Very clear and precise on how you can use each section. I found it exceeded all expectations. Although I am not one for sending cards, my children did enjoy using this section and ticking off when they had sent a card back to their classmates. The Gift to buy section was invaluable. Santa lists seem to be added on throughout November and December and this meant that I could keep on adding to the list. Also could keep track of the cost in relation to each child. The shopping list was a brilliant section to have on it. I found that I was buying things in previous years ahead of my final food shop and then forgetting that I had already purchased it. (This could explain why we had 3 Christmas puddings one year.) The Christmas Diary was very helpful. I could record all those extra thoughts that spring to mind. My children liked the daily meal planner section and was thinking of various things that that would like to eat over the festive period. The pages for favourite recipes was by far my favourite section. I find Christmas a time where we can all get in the kitchen and be social whilst we bake so this is a great part to have. I like the reflections section. I’m not one for writing diaries and then looking back over them but I think my children would enjoy looking at them in the future. It was awesome that it was all contained in one little A5 book. It has been used plenty and moved about the house, in and out of my handbag too and yet it is still looking immaculate. The recipe section is the best part for me. I can record all those things that I want to try this year without having to either print off the recipes and then lose them or continuously be on my phone. For £12, it’s a bargain. Would make a perfect gift for those that either love Christmas or those that stress about the time. Amazing quality. Without a doubt I would buy this. Absolutely would recommend! It is easy to use and you can start to think and record all those little things you want to do to make your day special. Although I haven’t used all of the sections yet, I have found it a perfect way to keep everything Christmas related in one place. Obviously there are some parts that my children can no longer see (i.e., gift part) but the rest, they have thoroughly enjoyed getting involved in. Already have plans to buy one ready for next year. Will be ideal to be ahead for 2022. Thank you for allowing me to review it.
Lovely book, colourful cover and pages. Lots of interesting pages that remind me of things I always forget when coming to Christmas. I didn’t really think it would be that useful before it arrived but it covers all areas of Christmas and helps me to keep track on what I have done and what I need to do. Wrote more in pencil so I can rub it out and use again next year. It exceeded my expectations. It covers all areas that we find important in Christmas. I love the calendar which allows me to plan our days and ensure everything is done without rushing or getting stressed. The sections are good but we do not give Christmas cards, we decided a few years ago to give money to a charity each year instead. The gift buy section allows me to keep track of who I need to buy for and how much I have spent. Would have liked a tick box to say I have brought this. Loved the shopping list section. Loads of space to write shopping lists. As a large family we do lots of food shopping at Christmas. The children love to add to the shopping list too. The Christmas Diary is another section that I love. There is space for me to record what we are all doing each day. As I have step children it also allows me to quickly glance at what days they will be with us allowing me to ensure there is enough shopping etc during the holidays. Meal planner is a great section. This allows me to make sure there isn’t waste with the food so I can save money at Christmas. Love the recipe section. I have lots of Christmas recipes that I learnt from my late grandmother and mother so I can write these down and keep this book for my daughter to use when she is older. This is a section I wrote in pen so I can reuse every year and it will keep for my daughter. The Christmas reflection section is lovely and will be nice to complete with my family but as I wish to use every year I won’t be keeping these records for longer than a year which is a shame. Absolutely helped me plan a more stress free cost effective Christmas. As I work full time and am running a small business my time is limited so to be organised helps my husband help more with the preparations. I really enjoyed recording my recipes that I learnt from my mother and grandmother with the idea that I can share with my daughter when she gets older. This is emotional and beautiful at the same time. I do think this is great value for money. It’s great quality with hard cover to keep it neat. The designed on each section are lovely. All round lovely planner. Great quality. Hard cover and good quality paper with lovely designs. When I was offered the planner I didn’t feel it would be very good however when it arrived and I started to look through it I realised it’s a brilliant idea. It will help me be organised and less stressed plus I can save money at an expensive time of year. I think I would defiantly consider buying now I have seen how great it is. Absolutely would recommend. In fact I have already told a few friends about it. Such a great product. Brilliant product that really helps a busy mum plan a great Christmas for her family!! I love it. I was surprised at how much I loved this product. I’m usually very stressed around this time of year with work and trying to get organised but I don’t feel stressed as it’s all written down and my husband knows what needs to be done when so is more able to help this year.
