Holiday Spread Ideas

Good afternoon, I hope your halloween went well. Today is November 1st which means it’s officially socially acceptable to start watching Christmas movies and listening to Christmas music! So to get you in the holiday spirit I am sharing 5 holiday themed spreads. Most are Christmas focused because that is what I celebrate, however, they can easily be adapted to suite whatever holiday you celebrate!


Title Page

Nothing complex here, just some paper and a gold sharpie, but it turned out really cute!

Wish List

Here’s a fun little spread that brings me back to my childhood days of writing letters to Santa. I used a piece of craft paper that looks like an enveloppe and used some regular tape to attach it in order to form a pocket. I then added a piece of paper that looked like a chalk board where I will write my actual list. I’m planning on using my white gelly roll pen in 08 (I would use 10 but I can’t find it anywhere).

Gift List

This is a super easy but very convient spread for keeping track of gift ideas for other people. Especially this year with most of our shopping probably going to be online, I added a section for ordered so you can remember what is coming. There is also a section for how much you spent on that person so you can easily add it to your budget spread (or however you track your expenses).

Self care spread

I talk about self care sooo much on my blog but that’s because it’s super important. The holidays tend to get quite stressful and busy and it’s important to remember to slow down, live in the moment and enjoy life. Here I made a cute little Christmas tree out of left over pieces from the last spread I did in this post, and topped it with a gold star. In each box I added an activity I enjoy doing along with a little doodle.

Movie List

A simple spread for some Christmas movie inspiration. Here are the movies on my list : A Christmas Story, elf, The Grinch, Polar Express, Christmas with the Kranks, The Santa Clause, Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, Charlie Brown Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, Jingle All the Way and It’s a Wonderful Life.

Advent Activity Calendar

I love this spread so much, it turned out way better than I was expecting. I drew 24 boxes (8X8 squares) and filled them with festive activities. Here is the list :

  2. Decorate your home
