Create a Functional Holiday Planning Station

December 03, 2017

If your life is anything like mine, the month of December is like a never ending to-do list.

Creating a Holiday Planning Station in your home is a great way to keep the little things you need throughout the month right at your fingertips. It doesn’t require much space, just a few organizational items and a little thinking ahead.

First create a quick list of the items you might need to have easy access to throughout the season:

  • Stamps for holiday cards
  • A stash of thank you cards and envelopes that you can regularly pop in the mail before you get too far behind
  • Tape, ribbon, bows, bags and scissors for ongoing gift wrapping
  • Matches or lighters for festive candles around the home, or to light the fireplace
  • Several pre-prepped hostess gifts that you can grab as you walk out the door. Check out this past blog post for gift ideas! 

Next, purchase a few organizational items to hold these materials and place them in a corner of your home like an office, the mudroom, a small area in your kitchen or in a cabinet. We suggest the Large Wicker Organizer Basket and the Wicker Divided Organization Basket for function and design.
