Christmas is almost upon us and that means there is a lot that has to be done. No matter how joyful the holidays are, there is always a certain amount of stress that goes into hosting Christmas. The presents have to be bought, wrapped and quietly placed under the tree. The cards have to be written and sent. Cookies baked and presented.

But come Christmas morning, we can all sit back, relax and enjoy the fact that we’ve gotten through this holiday in one piece. Especially if you were smart enough to prep some make-ahead Christmas recipes the night before. Because the last thing any of uswant to do on this lazy morning is get back in the kitchen.

Didn’t think about that? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We rounded up delicious recipes that can be made either a day or two ahead, or that are super simple to throw together the day of. This is our holiday gift to you ― merry Christmas, folks!
