Holiday Planning Doesn’t Need To Be Stressful
The holidays are here! I don’t know about you, but Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s always sneak up on me. One minute I’m trick or treating with the kids, then the next minute I’m wrapping gifts and sending out holiday cards. Keep your sanity by keeping track of all your holiday planning in your bullet journal.
So many talented bullet journalists and planners are way ahead of the game. I wanted to bring you the best holiday planning ideas so you’d be ready to tackle the wonderful (but overwhelming!) season.
Quick note: be sure to pin this Holiday Planning post. I will add more ideas throughout the month as I find them on Pinterest and Instagram.
Let’s start with the simple Welcome page.
Monthly welcome pages have become very popular with bullet journalers. It’s a nice way to mark where your new month begins. (Looking for more examples of Welcome *month* pages? Click here.)
Some journalers like to use a more traditional monthly calendar like the one directly below. Others opt for a monthly log. If you’d like to see even more examples of how to use a monthly spread in your bullet journal, I’ve written a blog post on it here.
Festive Weekly Spread
The weekly spread is another bullet journal favorite. As with most bullet journal elements, you can choose to keep it simple like the one below. Or, make it amazingly beautiful (if you have the time and artistic talent) like the one from @bujopowerofcreativity.
I don’t know about you, but if I don’t plan out which gifts I’m going to buy for family and friends, I make impulsive purchases. Eliminate that possibility with a gift list.

Holiday Bucket List
There are so many fun activities to do during the holidays: lights to see, crafts to make, cookies to bake. I love the idea of a holiday bucket list to make sure you don’t forget everything.
And how about this Random Acts of Christmas Kindness from @momdotlove?
Holiday Card List
I personally save my christmas card list on a google doc, but these lists are waaaaaaaay more beautiful!
Decorating To Do List
We have a few Christmas boxes in our garage, but I always forget to check those few in the attic. Keep your decorations organized with a decorating list!
I love how @quietcollections decorated this page to look like old-fashioned recipe cards, and that hand lettering is spot on!
If you’re just trying to make your bullet journal pages a little more festive, these tracker ideas are just for you!
That’s it SO FAR! I will continue to add holiday planning ideas to this post as I find more ideas on Pinterest and Instagram. Be sure to pin this post (image below) so you can continue to be inspired throughout the month.
