Let’s take the Stress out of Christmas Preparations

I know, I know it feels too early to be thinking about Christmas, but can you spare just five minutes to give it a thought? How about treating yourself to the best Christmas gift ever – the gift of a stress-free Christmas? Now’s the time to start getting organised. How about booking an extra pair of hands to make it all happen, so you can enjoy the autumn and sail into Christmas feeling relaxed and ready? A quick call to Louise England means that you know you will have nothing outstanding on your list come 25th December.

The word ‘Christmas’ starts your head spinning at the prospect of so much to think about, let alone tick off the list. Many of you will be list-lovers like me and now’s the time to start writing lists; including cards, presents, posting, travel plans, food, and decorations. It is so satisfying to be able to tick off the items! I have some excellent templates for Christmas Masterplans with time-saving tips and lots of local knowledge – from where to get your tree to where to order a mouth-watering turkey or goose. Call me Santa’s PA!

It’s never too early to start ordering presents. Why not have your presents delivered to me – I can drop them to you already wrapped at a time you’ll be home – no need for missed deliveries, and no worries about running out of sticky tape! Another task could be printing off name and address labels ready for your Christmas cards.

Christmas cards are still much appreciated in this age of technology and social media. Rather than having to write ‘hope to see you in 2014,’ why not make this the year you throw a party and catch up with friends old and new? Book a date now, and do consider booking my services to help you plan and enjoy the evening: I have plenty of experience at event organising and I am full of ideas to give your event a festive sparkle, whether you intend to entertain at home or elsewhere. Just leave it with me – and take the stress out of the festive season.

What about a completely different idea for a Christmas present this year – a professional organiser/de-clutterer for the day? A disorganised and pretty chaotic friend could certainly do with a helping hand, or a really busy and stressed out relative with an endless to-do list that never gets touched? You can give them a gift that will make a positive difference to their life. Vouchers are available from just £25. To purchase please send me an email or give me a call, and I will send the gift certificate by post.
