The holiday season can be stressful, both on you and your wallet. One way to ensure you stay on track financially while still crossing every name off your list is to use a printable Christmas shopping list template. Below are two printable Christmas shopping list organizers that are sure to save you time, money, and stress!
Call me a nerd, but I’m a huge fan of making shopping lists… even at the holidays. Hey, Santa has a list, and he checks it twice, so why shouldn’t you? That’s why I came up with these 2 printable Christmas shopping list templates!
A Christmas shopping list organizer serves several purposes including:
- Making sure you have primary and backup gift ideas for everyone on your list.
- Making sure you know what the “status” of each gift is; for example, whether or not it has been wrapped yet.
- Making sure you have a defined budget for each recipient… so there are no financial surprises when you balance your checkbook in the New Year!
Tip: Before utilizing one of these printable Christmas gift shopping lists, you should take some time to figure out just how much you can safely spend on gifts. That’s right, if you don’t already have one, I recommend you take some time to fill out one of these free printable budget worksheet!
Festive Background Printable Christmas Shopping List
Both of the printable Christmas shopping list organizers offer the same features with space for the:
- Recipient’s name
- Budget for gift(s)
- Gift specifics such as item name and size or color
- Store or website where the gift is located

What sets one printable Christmas gift shopping list apart from the other is the design.

I think this option is perfect if you’re the type of person who loves decorating at this time of year!
