Christmas Gift List Guide
This document was designed to be fully customizable. You’ll want to start with the columns marked ‘’Friend/family” and “Age Range”. Here, you can change the pre-written categories, so they pertain more to your family and friends!
You can also use the auto filters to limit the list to only include your friends or family. The formula that calculates everything will automatically update and change once this has been completed.
When everything has been edited to your liking, you can start to fill out the main table. Enter the name of the person receiving a gift in the “Recipients” column. Then enter your “Planned cost” next to that name, this serves as your budget. You can also select their age range and connection to you, to help you make a great gift idea!
Next, enter the gift you have actually purchased for this person, once you have already picked it up. There is also space for the “Actual” cost. This will be compared with your budget in the overview at the top of the page.
