Making a List
(Checking it Twice)

DIY By Carlie Jacobs @carliej_plans


One of my favorite Nutcracker traditions that my ballet friends and I do at nutcracker rehearsals and performances, is Secret Santa!!🎅🏻❤️✨
At the beginning of the Nutcracker season, we all drew an envelope that had a dancer’s name in it and a wishlist of their favorite things so we could start shopping!🎁
This year, I created a Secret Santa Gift Ideas List using some of my favorite @the_happy_planner holiday stickers and accessories to plan the gifts to give my Secret Santa ahead of time!🎄✨
I loved using the alphabet stickers to write out the categories from her wishlist and the journaling box stickers for my gift ideas for each week! Those make it so easy to keep my plans secret and hidden!🤫🎁 I am also using a @the_happy_planner plastic envelope to keep the original list nice and safe!🥰
This is such a fun and easy way to plan out your own Secret Santa gifts or any gifts this holiday season!🎄🎁✨

Have a lot of people to buy for but not sure how to organize it, or how to make sure you stay on budget? I used The Happy Planner Classic Holiday filler paper along with stickers from the Merry & Bright and Winter sticker value packs to create a fun gift list spread, and a spreadsheet to make sure you stay on budget! Here is what you need:

  1. Holiday Filler Paper
  2. Favourite sticker packs or seasonal value packs
  3. Ruler and a pen

You can create a sheet for Christmas, or use this for any holiday throughout the year. This setup is versatile and simple! Take what you need and have fun jazzing up your gift lists and budget lists.
