A handy little book to get you in the mood and your head a little in gear. Do remember to get it off the shelf a few months prior to the big day though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very practical little book 17 Nov 2012
By Skyfox
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is fun in that it is a compilation of real tips that a real family seem to have used successfully. We all have our own traditions but some of the suggestions seem worth considering. Christmas has got very commercialised and families are being put under terrible pressure to buy 'happiness' and we all know we can't. We all want to enjoy the holidays but not at too high a 'price' and I don't mean just financially. Great little book could be a bit longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some great ideas! 17 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. It is useful and practical. Loved the ideas on presents and keeping costs down. I liked the novel ideas for wrapping. I had never thought of using ebay as a source for gift wrapping bags, ribbon etc. I'm not sure if I am organised enough to plan everything from January but I may well give it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best preparation book on the internet 16 Feb 2013
By Qaz
Format:Kindle Edition
I dont usually buy or download books but I gave this book a go due to a highly recommendation from friends. What my friends recommended turn out to be exactly like they said it would. It really is a very handy book to have in order to get yourselves prepared for this religious festival.

I would recommend to everyone because this book helps everyone no-matter what you work as or do in your spare time. It really does get all the steps very organised.

Dont miss out!
