So this is Christmas... Part 7: Blogs to read for Christmas ideas!

It's no secret I love Christmas, and I especially love when all my favourite blogs have Christmas traditions, gifts, crafts and baking to share, and I can spend hours upon hours reading their posts and getting ideas for things I'd like to do with my own little family.

Here are some you should definitely check out this Christmas season!

1. The Organised Housewife

Kat from The Organised Housewife has created a Christmas to-do list which began at the start of November (so you guys have some catching up to do!) where there is one task given on most days. For example, task number 8 is to complete your gift list, and she provides some great ideas and a link for a printable to help you do that.

She also has provided quick links to:
 - Christmas recipes
 - Organising tips
 - Christmas gift guides
 - Handmade gift ideas
 - Elf on the Shelf Ideas
 - Christmas printables

You can also get her newsletter sent to your inbox each day, which provides you with the Christmas task for the day.

In 2014, Kat's Christmas series was titled 'Organise yourself a Merry little Christmas' and I enjoyed reading each of these tips and ideas - click on the link to check it out!
