The Nice List: a Thoughtful Christmas Giving Planner

Thoughtful gift-giving is an art; The Nice List helps you become an even better artist.

I love giving gifts. Like you, I spend a lot of time thinking about and finding that perfect something for the special people in my life.

What is The Nice List?

The Nice List is an easy-to-use Christmas gift-giving planner which helps you get organized, save money, and give better gifts. And the Nice List helps you keep track of the gifts you give year after year -- so you never give the same gift twice unless you intend to do it!

 The Nice List will be bound in red vegan leather with tasteful gold embossing on the cover and spine.

The Nice List will be bound in vegan leather with an elastic wrap to keep it closed. The cover will be embossed with gold, and the contents will be printed on archival paper — a thoughtful, elegant design. This is a planner small enough to take with you, but big enough for writing and journaling.

But above all else, the Nice List is a gift-giving system.

 The Nice List includes thoughtful suggestions for better gift giving as well as thoughts on how to use the journal itself.

  1. Put everyone to whom you want to give a gift on one of three lists:

    • Family: Meaningful Gifts

    • Friends: Personal Gifts

    • Work/School: Tokens of Appreciation

  2. Then, using the Budget Worksheet, you set a per gift budget for each category.

  3. Using both the online tools at MidModernMama.com as well as other tools in The Nice List, you can make thoughtful, budget-conscious choices for each person on your list.

The online tools at MidModernMama.com will include access to unique gift suggestions, recipes, and exclusive discounts at retailers for gifts that are truly special.

Increase the joy & eliminate the stress of gift giving!

 The Nice List is at its heart a gift-giving system which includes dividing people into three groups and then budgeting per gift. The tools in The Nice List make it all very easy!

The Nice List Tools include:

 Designed with journaling in mind, The Nice List includes blank, lined, and gridded pages for bullet journaling, art journaling, scrapbooking, or just general list making.

  • The Family Pages: a place to jot down ideas for those Meaningful Gifts -- even months in advance! No more relying on your memory for that perfect gift that occurred to you in September.

  • Coupons and Codes: a spot for tracking coupons and discount codes from all of the emails and online discounts common during the season.

  • List Pages: track which gifts have been purchased, from where, and for how much as well as shipping information.

  • Gifts Received: write down all of those gifts you receive -- and keep track of the thank you notes you send.

  • Journaling: The Nice List also has blank pages, gridded pages, and lined pages for notes, journaling, and scrapbooking. Paste in a copy of your Christmas card -- or the cards you receive. Put in some of your favorite photos from the season. Make notes about meal planning -- or record exactly what you made for Christmas Dinner. I am a journaler -- a little bullet journaling, some art journaling, some scrapbooking -- so I designed The Nice List to be flexible and a great place for recording the best of the season.

 The Nice List includes both weekly and monthly spreads for November and December, 2018. So you can also keep track of parties, performances, and mailing deadlines as well as baking and shopping.

What are the benefits?

Christmas gift giving can be stressful and expensive. The Nice List helps you to focus on gifts that are truly meaningful and will be appreciated while also finding the perfect gifts within your budget. In the end you will save time and money, and you will recapture the joy of giving!

So, what is actually inside The Nice List?

  • November and December 2018 calendar

  • Weekly calendar pages for 10 weeks including To Do lists

  • 20 People pages -- for the most important people in your life

  • Tips and plans for better gift giving

  • Dedicated spot for list making

  • Budgeting worksheet

  • Blank pages for journaling

  • Discreet cover -- to keep snooping children or friends away

But I already have a planner!

If you have a favorite planner, but you are interested in The Nice List, you can spend $18 and get access to a downloadable copy which you can print and add to your own planner. The pages will be the same size as the finished book. You can print them and trim as needed to insert into your own planner. Downloads will be sent in early October.

Why Preorders?

Preordering is the fastest way to bring The Nice List to nice people like you in time for the 2018 Christmas season!

We plan to ship orders out during the last week of October and the first week of November. We want to stay on The Nice List, so we will move heaven and earth to make this happen!

I thought you were doing a Kickstarter?

We were, but we had to end it early. My business partner and graphic designer, Holly, gave birth to her first child prematurely. So we needed a little more time than Kickstarter allows. But, because we are both planners and Holly was pregnant, we had a Plan B! We have changed printers, bought a little more time, and we are still on track to mail books out in early November!
