In the realm of holiday finances, we’re not just discussing gifts; there are also expenses related to dinners, special outings, and various other holiday activities.

To manage expenses not related to gifts, you can utilize the two tables on the left, which I’ll explore in more detail shortly. As for Christmas gifts, there are dedicated tabs right here.

HOW THE GOOGLE SHEET GIFT TRACKER OPERATES

I find Google Sheets to be an excellent tool for organization and budget tracking. They are incredibly user-friendly and can be easily accessed on the go through the Google Sheets app.

The Google Sheet planner I’ve designed enables you to establish a comprehensive budget for your Christmas gift shopping.

You can then utilize the planner to set individual budgets for each person on your gift list.

Furthermore, you can make notes about the gifts you intend to purchase and specify the stores where you plan to make those purchases.

Once you’ve made a purchase, you can record the actual cost, and the planner will automatically calculate the remaining funds, considering both the individual budget and the overall gift budget you’ve designated.

This approach allows you to make real-time decisions about whether to adjust someone else’s budget, buy an additional gift, or potentially save on your overall budget as you progress through your gift shopping journey.

It’s not November at the moment, but as soon as November rolls around, each passing day will be grayed out on the calendar until you reach Christmas Day. Remember, you don’t change the Christmas Day date here; you change it in the settings tab. Simply double-click and set your Christmas Day for that specific year. The calendar will then be updated accordingly, along with your countdown of days until Christmas.

I recommend keeping a blank version of this template, one in which you haven’t added any data. This way, you can go back to the blank version each year and create a new copy from it. Here’s how to do it: Click on “File,” select “Make a copy,” give it a different name, choose a different folder to store it if needed, and then click on “Make a copy.” This will provide you with a fresh copy to start editing while preserving your blank version for future use.
