12 Days of Christmas Gift Ideas + Free Printable Tags

Want to give 12 Days of Christmas gifts to a neighbor, a coworker, or a family member? Download these adorable 12 Days of Christmas Gift Tags and pair them with small gifts to bring Christmas cheer! Gift ideas included.

The Twelve Days of Christmas is a familiar and fun Christmas carol that inspires holiday gift giving. It’s a super fun way to do Secret Santa or ding-dong ditch a neighbor every night. Use these free printable Christmas gift tags to give creative presents that are reminiscent of the original gifts from the carol. 

When I was a child, I remember that someone did the 12 Days of Christmas for our family. We looked forward with great anticipation to see what they would be bringing next, and of course, we always tried to catch them in the act but never could. That is a cherished Christmas memory for me, and something I always want to do for others. I have done it a few times, and it really is even more fun to do the gifting!

This year, I wanted to make some 12 Days of Christmas printables to always have on hand. Below you’ll find a form to download your own printable gift tags, along with gift ideas for each of the twelve days.

When do the 12 Days of Christmas start?

You can start leaving gifts any time in December. If you want to finish up your gift series by Christmas Day, December 14th is the absolute last day you can start. This will have you giving your last treat on December 25th. December 13th is the most common day to begin before Christmas, but choose what works best for you!

That said, the actual 12 days of Christmas from the familiar Christmas song is meant to start on Christmas Day, ending on January 5th. This is a great way to keep the holiday spirit going until Advent is finished and ring in a happy new year for someone!
