There’s not much time left before Christmas to do a lot of things, so here’s our whirlwind holiday checklist for these last few weeks.
Time to get the tree, decorate it, and dust off all the Christmas decorations. Turn on the Christmas music and this job is a lot more fun. Get this free holiday garland printable!
Send out those Christmas Cards
Kids can help with stamps and address labels. Make it a family project. See note about Christmas music above.
Display your cards
One inexpensive decorating idea is to display the Christmas cards you receive. They make a colorful holiday display whether you put them on your fridge, mantel, or create a unique place to show them off. Check out our Pinterest board for some fun ideas!

We’re excited to introduce some of our newest products, personalized gift ideas for everyone in the family! From personalized notepads to kids’ placemats, you can create your own gift, and make it personal by adding their name and, in some cases, photos and color choices!
We’ve taken some of our favorite card designs and turned them into personalized notepads that friends and relatives will love to use for just about anything, from grocery lists to writing letters back to you! Kids will love our kid-friendly designs, grads can take them to college to write home, and your friends will love our grown-up designs. Some notepads are a handy scratch-pad size (4 1/4″ W x 5 1/2″ H) and some are a bigger 5 5/16″ W x 8 1/4″ H size, which is perfect to use as stationery.
Our Holly Days is another one of our beloved Pearistas. Holly decided to create a DIY Elf-ing Treat using Pear Tree’s Christmas notelettes. We love homemade Christmas gift ideas and we wanted to share this one with our readers. Enjoy!
J & I have the sweetest neighbors. They are always bringing over toys for the boys to play with & sneaking them Squeez-It’s on hot days. Sometimes they bring their cat out to let the boys pet her & they always stop to listen to their stories.
I think elf-ing your neighbors is such a sweet idea & it’s a tradition that J & I decided to start with the kids this year. I had some extra apple butter from the batch I made, so we decided to use it for the neighbors’ elf treat. And Pear Tree’s sweet new Christmas Notelettes & Christmas gift tags/personalized stickers are perfect for elf-ing!
Isn’t this just the sweetest little thing? Anything that is miniature is automatically 10x cuter. Besides, homemade apple butter. I went ahead & brushed off both my mom win & awesome neighbor shoulders for this one.
