    Thanksgiving is just a few days away and holiday party planning will be getting underway -- if it hasn't already. If you have been chosen as the lucky individual in your office to plan this year's company Christmas party, congratulations!!! Some people dread planning a company Christmas party. One reason is because it is hard to please EVERYONE in your office -- so don't worry about that. However, the good news is you can definitely please most people and have a great time as well. Today on the Charming Chick blog we will show you some festive items that will make the season merry and bright -- AND some tips to help you plan the perfect company Christmas party.

    The first thing you'll want to do is to find out the holiday party planning budget for your company. While there are many ways to plan a company Christmas party on any budget, before you start planning you definitely want to know how much money you have. Sometimes things are tight and renting out a party room in a restaurant or country club may not be an option. In those cases sometimes a boss will host the party at their house -- or even at the office.

    There are other things to consider as well such as; will each person be responsible for picking up their own tab, if not, will they at least need to pay for their drinks or will you provide one or two drink tickets per person? Who will be invited, the employee and a guest? Is it a family affair? Just an after work function for employees only?

    Another helpful company Christmas party planning tip is to send out an email or a poll asking the folks in your office what they would like to do. It works best to narrow it down to a few things and then just see what the majority of people want to do. After you decide on what you will do make sure to call the restaurant to make sure it's available (and that they can accommodate a large group) and then send out an email or Evite letting people know about the company Christmas party. The Evite should let people know when and where the event is, if they are responsible for their own bill and/or meal choices, directions and any other information that you feel is important for them to know.

     

    To add an extra special and festive touch to your company Christmas party and other holiday party planning, it's nice to include favors like the ones we have pictured in this post. Just a small token that lets everyone know their hard work is noticed and that the powers that be, really do appreciate all they do.

    We hope you have a great time and enjoy the holiday season. Have fun with all your holiday party planning and all of the events of the Christmas season.

    Well, it's the first week of November and most of us have started thinking about holiday shopping -- or maybe not. Have you started planning?? Have you started shopping? Well, I bought my first Christmas present of the season and I am chomping at the bit to buy more. However, if you are like me you might do shopping here and there and then wen it comes down to the wire you discover you are missing some people and gift heavy on others...and staying on budget? That can certainly be tough as well BUT today we are going to give you some holiday shopping and planning tips that should make things -- merry and bright this season.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Holiday Shopping Tips

     

    1. Make a List -- and Check it Twice

    The first thing you'll want to do before you start your holiday shopping is to make a list of all the people you would like to buys Christmas gifts this year. If you have ideas about items that you would like to purchase and an estimated price. If you love creating spreadsheets, this task can be right up your alley. No only can you keep track of who you need to buy for and what you have purchased, you can also keep track of packages you need to mail and all kinds of other things.

     

    2. Create a Budget

     

    After you have your holiday shopping list together figure out an overall budget. As much as possible try to set aside money throughout the year so you won't be paying for your Christmas gifts all the way until next Christmas. After you come up with an overall budget, you can assign a certain amount to each person on your list .The BEST idea is to set aside the money for Christmas gifts aside into a separate account that you can access when you set out to go shopping.

     

    3. Shop Sales and Look for Coupon Codes

     

    You don't have to wait until "Black Friday" to start your Holiday shopping and save big. In fact retailers are starting to offer amazing deals now. PLUS, if you shop early you won't feel so stressed. At Charming Chick we are constantly offering great deals leading up to Christmas.

    Teachers work hard for our children each and everyday.  They come in early, they stay late and they spend time at home grading papers and planning lessons. Great teachers always make time for their students and parent concerns.  If your child has a caring and dedicated teacher you have probably been trying to find a way to show your appreciation. Christmas is a fantastic time to let that special teacher know how grateful you are. Don't worry, you don't have to spend a lot of money to say thank you. We have many Christmas gift ideas for you to choose from; just add a heartfelt note of thanks and it will mean so much to them! 

     

     

    These elegant engraved soaps make fantastic Christmas gift ideas. Teachers receive a lot of coffee mugs, candles and candy as Christmas gifts, so if you want to do some thing that is different, these are perfect. Since these can be engraved with the teachers initials on them it shows that you put extra thought into choosing just the right item. These soaps not only look amazing, they also smell terrific and are so pampering to the skin. They come beautifully packaged and ready for gift-giving.
