As we prepare for the holidays, planning gifts for friends and family can be hectic—that’s why C&P has compiled our ultimate tips and tricks in order to curate the best gift giving guide for the holidays! We’ll take a look at our Cloth & Paper favorites, how to track gift wishlists, and tips on taking control of your holiday spending.
The holiday season can get busy, so it's important to stay on track and up-to-date with your friends’ and family’s wishlists, along with your potential gifting ideas. With the Wishlist Tracker Inserts | 2nd Edition, each recipient can be assigned a page dedicated to their wishlist. Keep track of items they’ll love to receive, along with each item’s price and where to buy them. I love using these inserts first to list potential gifts, and then decide exactly what and when I’ll be purchasing. Compare your list of items: which items are priorities, which ones fit your budget best, and which ones are most at risk of going out of stock. Once you’ve narrowed down your list, make a note of the items you have settled on. I like to use a highlighter for ease of visibility, such as the Monami Essenti Soft Highlighter | Pastel Brown to mark my final choices. As you purchase gifts, don’t forget to include this on your wishlist tracker, with either a checkmark or our Transparent Shape Stickers | Dots | Dirty Chai for an aesthetically pleasing pop of color.
In addition to shopping for others, a personal wishlist is a must! List your most anticipated Black Friday deals, holiday discounts, and any other exciting items you look forward to snagging this year.
Track Your Holiday Spending
Holiday spending and wishlist tracking go hand-in-hand, so don’t forget to add the Purchase Tracker Inserts | 2nd Edition to your holiday planning! Similar to the Wishlist Tracker Inserts, these include spaces to list items that you purchase. While holiday shopping, try categorizing items by function, such as “gifts”, “home decor” and “holiday cooking” to provide an organized overview of your holiday spending and make budget adjustments where necessary. For additional organization, color-code these categories with either of our various Brush Pens like the Tombow Dual Brush Pen Art Marker | Cappuccino, or Transparent Shape Stickers | Dots in a soft color like Linen.
Whether it’s finding the perfect C&P gift, tracking your family’s wishlist, or tracking your purchases, C&P has you covered! Happy Holidays!
