1. You’ll never overcook the turkey again

2. Say goodbye to forgotten gifts
Whoops! There’s so much to think about at Christmas that it’s no surprise that every now and then, someone slips through the net. With a Christmas planner, there’s plenty of room to write down who you’re buying for and all your gift ideas so you can remember when inspiration strikes! For those who love ticking stuff off, there are also boxes for when you’ve bought their gift, wrapped it and sent it if it’s being slipped under a different tree. Satisfying!
3. Your finances, under control
Next up on our reasons you need a Christmas planner is budgeting. Christmas day can be expensive!
