You can accumulate completed missions before activating the skill point bonus. However, I don't believe that it really matters which order you turn them in. In my experience it seems that the mission rewards are locked based on the level you were when you took the mission. Thus, the most you can do is use this to determine when to take certain missions that have high rewards, because you will still gain a lot of XP just doing the missions.
If you haven't already run the FE mission chains, those will cause you the most grief since you need to turn one in to get the next, leaving only the last to get the bonus toward. For the most part mission XP is static or actually increases based on your level for scalable ones like the FE's. And make sure to run all easy repeatable missions before turning it in.
Also, remember that the XP Bonus timer doesn't count down while logged out. You can use this fact by positioning yourself by an short repeatable mission like Cold Comfort before activating it. That way you can do a couple additional runs of that under the bonus by logging out under the mission cool down. Of course, this only makes sense if you have other things you actually want to do outside of game during that time.
