Martha's Countdown to the Holidays

Welcome to your holiday checklist and organization headquarters! Discover all of the Martha-designed products that will help you celebrate Christmas and ring in the new year.

Three Weeks Before Christmas

The Christmas season is gearing up! It's time to start decorating the house and preparing for parties. Personalize your decorations with fun DIY crafts the whole family can enjoy. It's also time to play Santa, so start checking your list twice to find out who's been naughty or nice, which means you need to draft and organize your gift list. Lastly, to get ahead on your holiday menu you'll want to consider which premium ingredients you'll need if you plan to try out new recipes.

Start Decorating the House

Martha's holiday décor collections are sure to add a festive touch to your entire home, from the mantel to dining table. Faux greenery and coordinated trimmings create an elevated look and become collector's items for your family to enjoy year after year. But don't forget to have a little fun. There are plenty of holiday decorating crafts that your kids will enjoy making and that you'll love having as precious keepsakes.

Personalize Your Home with DIY Projects

Break out the craft paint, stencils, and Cricut machine and turn ordinary items into unique decorations for your home. Choose projects that require minimal materials, dry time, and space so you don't become overwhelmed. Interested in hosting a neighborhood gathering around the holidays? Reinvent the traditional group event by hosting a DIY "crafternoon."

Make and Freeze Cookie Dough

Be prepared for impromptu party invites, school functions, and office get-togethers by always having cookie dough on hand. Properly stored dough can last up to three months, and freezing the dough won't alter the baking instructions by much.

Prep for Parties

Start the party prep early for those last-minute cookie swaps and out-of-town friend visits. Shop your holiday serveware and festive holiday mugs to mix your hot chocolate in. Then get cozy by the fire with plush throws and extra pillows.

Draft Your Gift List and Begin Shopping

Start your holiday shopping early to beat the crowds and choose from the best selection. If you're planning to shop online, keep in mind shipping schedules. Section your list by recipient, connection (family, neighbor, coworker), or interest (foodie, decorator, organizer) to make shopping more efficient. Also think about gifts that are easy to give to multiple people, like notebooks for coworkers, and wine or a gift basket for party hostesses.

Order the Premium Ingredients

Order these big-ticket items now, which can be conveniently handled online, and rest assured the main attractions of your holiday feast are taken care. Consider ordering additional ingredients to have on-hand for unexpected holiday guests and last-minute dinner parties. Plus, a festive gift basket or a bottle of wine are easy gifts for the holiday host.

Two Weeks Before Christmas

Be our guest! This week, it's all about preparing your home for out-of-town friends and family. You can also begin preparing the table for Christmas dinner; pull out the food prep tools, start making the cookies, and stock the bar. And don't leave all the wrapping until the very last minute; stay ahead and start your wrapping this week!

Pull Out Your Cookware and Food Prep Tools

Non-stick cookware and durable cooking tools allow you to spend time enjoying the day, instead of toiling over a hot stove and sink full of dishes. Martha's collection of enameled cast iron cookware is perfect for one-pot recipes that help reduce clean up time.

Start Making Cookies and Other Baked Goods

Defrost your pre-made cookie dough and heat up the oven! Turn Sunday afternoon into a family bake-off sweetened with fun cookie cutters, decorating kits, dyed icing, and flavored sprinkles. Have the kids decorate cookies for their school parties, while you perfect your signature confection for the neighborhood cookie exchange. Store treats in festive cookie jars or tins that double as countertop decoration.

Prep the Guest Bedroom and Bathroom

Keep your guests cozy with layered bedding, plush robes, and festive decorative pillows. Throws laid at the end of the bed can be brought into the living room for a movie night by the fire. Bath towels in different colors or patterns help guests remember which one is theirs, and quick-dry fabric keeps them fresh.

Put a Personal Spin on Gifting

Gifts with a DIY touch are great for neighbors, coworkers, and party hostesses. You can keep the cost low by purchasing multiple of the same item, like coffee mugs and tote bags. Monogram the recipients' initials, use their favorite color paints, or decorate with embellishments tailored to their personal styles. If you're not feeling crafty and willing to splurge a little more, a nice gift basket catered to the host's favorite snacks is the perfect holiday gift.

Stock the Bar

Prep your bar so it's ready to use when guests arrive. Stock it with alcoholic and kid-friendly drink options, a variety of glasses and mugs, and proper barware. Coordinated bar tools and accessories let you stir and pour with ease, plus it creates a polished look.

Start Wrapping Gifts

Get a head start to avoid a gift-wrapping marathon come Christmas Eve night. Add a touch of DIY to your gifts with Martha's holiday projects for wrap, boxes, and card holders. Or skip the wrapping entirely and opt for a no-wrapping-needed gift!

One Week Before Christmas

Can you hear the sleigh bells? Take care of last-minute gifts, set the table, tidy the house, and start preparing dishes that can be made ahead of time.

Iron the Table Linens

Pull out napkins, table runners, and other linens and scan them for rips, stains, and other wear. If you find you're in need of new linens, Martha's Winter Scroll Table Linen Collection consists of a festive tone-on-tone scroll motif on both the tablecloth and coordinating napkins.

Set the Table for Christmas Dinner

One task you can complete before Christmas guests arrive is setting the table with linens, dinnerware, and tabletop trimmings. Beautiful dishes and serving platters printed with seasonal motifs can double as decorations. We also recommend taking inventory of serveware and utensils to make sure you don't run short right before the big feast.
