If you're already planning for Christmas and it's still summer, that is pretty impressive. It indicates that you are a very organized person. It might also indicate that you are passionate about Christmas, considering it the most wonderful time of the year. Or, it might be a practical reason that leads you to get ready for Christmas early. Perhaps you'll be on an extended cruise and you won't be able to take care of things like buying gifts and shipping them.
Do you already have a plan about getting your packages ready for Christmas? That's no surprise! On the other hand, maybe you are looking for ideas. If that's the case, from choosing a theme for this year's gifts to buying shipping materials, here are some ideas that might help you.
Pick A Theme - Wouldn't it be fun to have a certain theme as you consider which presents you'll buy? For example, the theme might be garden gifts. You can have a ball shopping for those. For example, a decorative birdhouse would be one thing found in gardens. A hummingbird feeder is another idea for something that is found in a garden. Think of buying a beautiful glass vase for somebody on your list who loves to do flower arranging.
Little gifts can be tied to your garden theme, too. For example, a box of note cards with a floral design or a flower brooch are just two examples of gifts with a garden theme.
Buy Shipping Materials - Make a list of everything you'll need in order to prepared for shipping gifts to those who live out of town. For example, if you bought a decorative birdhouse, you'll need a sturdy box that the birdhouse will fit in. If you are shipping the glass vase, you'll want bubble wrap for extra protection, plus a box in which to put the vase. For things like the floral note cards or the flower brooch, a smaller padded mailing envelope is probably all you need to keep those items from being damaged.
Don't forget little things, too. For example, you'll want heavy mailing tape and mailing labels. And, just for the fun of it, think of buying Christmas-themed stickers with things like Santa, elves, and even the message, "Don't Open Til Christmas Day!" on the stickers. And, while you're at it, think of buying labels that have the word "Fragile!" on them.
