Gift Giving-Start Planning Now

by Angela On September 23, 2008

I have a client right now who has inspired me to create a gift giving binder.  I really like this idea and with the holidays sneaking up on us I have started to do this myself.  As I am flipping through a magazine if see something I like for a friend or family member I tear out the page and insert it into a clear sheet protector in a binder.  You can ad a post-it note to the page if you need to or simply write a note on the page itself.  If you would really like to go over the top with it you could organizer your binder by family member or by groups such as:  your immediate family, your family (your parents etc.), your in-laws, and friends.  Part of the key to making this work is to have a binder ready with empty sheet protectors ready to be used.  That way you don’t have to add a new one to the binder each time you find something new. 

If you don’t like the idea of a binder or you don’t have a place to store a binder you can create a folder or multiple folders.  You can store the folder in your filing system or in your action system. 

The main purpose is to have a place to collect the ideas so when the time comes for you to start your holiday or birthday shopping you are not stumped.   

This is also a great place to keep a list of the sizes of your family members and their likes and dislikes.  I also keep a spreadsheet of what I purchase for each family member each year.  This has been so helpful so I make sure not to give someone the same thing two years in a row! 

Not struggling about what to get someone for the holidays, what a relief! 

Enjoy the good life,

Angela
