Have you noticed how hard it is to remember who gave what gift and to who? And the more kids you add the harder it gets! This year I decided enough was enough and remembered what my dad did every year. He’d sit with pen and paper and keep track of who gave each gift and to whom.

So I decided to copy my dad, but I didn’t want to use plain paper this year. Instead I created a cute little gift tracker to use. It has 3 columns and check boxes down the left hand side.
The columns are listed:
- Gift – what the gift is! I don’t know about your kids, but my kids disappear quickly with their gifts and sometimes I forget what gifts they were given.
- To – This is fairly obvious. To whom was the gift given? You can write everyone’s full name there or do what I do. Use initials!
- From – Again I suspect this is also an obvious column. Who gave the gift? I don’t use initials in this column. It quickly gets too complicated to figure out what the various letters mean.
- Check box – On the left hand side of the checklist you’ll see a series of check boxes running down the side. The purpose is so that you can keep track of thank you letters.
Come December 26th, you won’t be stressing and trying to remember who gave which gift to which child. You won’t need to rack your brain trying to remember every gift given to your kids.
Instead you’ll have it all listed neatly on the gift tracker sheet and can even track whether or not you’ve sent thank you letters to family and friends!
