What Makes it Sweet & Simple?
- For one, the tags are printable and ready to go!
- Each day contains a fun little poem that correlates with the gift for the day.
- All of the gifts can be found inexpensively at the grocery store or dollar store, making it affordable even when budgets are tight during the Christmas season.

If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for your neighbor, coworker, widow, or family, this version is perfect! The gifts are inexpensive and fairly generic.
Plus, many of the poem tags have a few different gift options so you can tailor it to your gift recipient!
But if you don’t think this is quite what you’re looking for, check out these other simple Christmas gift ideas:
- 12 Days of Christ (a Christ-Centered version with a name of Christ plus matching gift for each day)
- 12 Days of Christmas Just For Guys (perfect for your husband or boyfriend!)
- 12 Days of Christmas Symbols (great for kids and families!)
Here’s what this version looks like:
I’ve already got printable tags made for you and all the inexpensive gifts can be picked up at the dollar store or grocery store!
Many of the daily poems have a few different gift options, so you can tailor it to whoever you are planning on giving it, too!
For example, Day 11 says, “Enjoy this 11th day of Christmas. The fire snaps, crackles, and pops on top, Like the Rice Crispy commercial Snack, Crackle, Pop.” You can wrap up a gift of store-bought rice crispy treats or make a plate of homemade rice krispy treats!
There’s 2 ways to give this! You can deliver one gift each day, or have them all ready to go in one giant gift bag or box. Just make sure you instruct your gift recipient to open one each day!
It’s the Thought The Counts
Yes, these are pretty practical and useful gifts, but more than the gift part, the thought behind this Sweet and Simple version means more than that.
We’ve given this to widows, or most recently, a dear family whose mom has recently been diagnosed with cancer. My heart aches for them, as my own mother passed away from cancer when I was 15. We were the recipients of such thoughtfulness that first Christmas.
So spreading some cheer and letting people know there is someone thinking about them can mean a lot!
