Keep Christ in Christmas with this cute 12 Days of Christ. Each day has a name of Christ with coordinating gift idea.
A Christ-Centered Gift Idea
I LOVE doing 12 Days of Christmas. My go-to 12 Days is this Sweet & Simple 12 Days of Christmas, but this year, I decided to create one that focused on Christ to give to my sister’s family. This 12 Days of CHRIST focuses on a name of Christ, a scripture where that name is found, and a gift that goes with that name.
My hope was for them to be able to learn more about Christ and have a fun present to remind them of that name as they go throughout the month of December.
Some of the gifts are serious and some are more fun. I think a mix is good, especially when kids are involved. And the gifts could easily be switched up to fit the recipient better.
12 Days of Christmas
I specifically wrapped up the gifts because unwrapping presents is always more fun, right? You could leave them unwrapped and just attach the 12 Days of Christ tags to the gift.
You can wrap them all up like this:
Or you can keep them unwrapped and use just the tags.
12 Days of CHRIST Gift Ideas
Ok, so you’re probably wondering what the 12 gifts were? Here’s just a few of the ones we gave….but keep reading because I have more than 12 ideas for you in case some of the gifts don’t fit for your gift recipient.
Christ is Emmanuel
Give your favorite version of The Christmas Story.
Christ is the Bread of Life
Christ is the Bread of Life. With Him in our lives, we will always be spiritually fed and taken care of. Give a bread mix or a loaf of bread from your favorite bakery. If you have lots of time, make your own mini loaves!
Christ is the Prince of Peace
Christ is the Prince of Peace because He is the only one that can provide true, lasting peace. For this gift, Reeses’ pieces for the win!
Christ is our Redeemer
Since Christ is our Redeemer who has washed away our sins through His Atonement, give some hand soap! You can usually find really good sales around the holidays.
Christ is our Shepherd
Christ is the ultimate Shepherd of his sheep, who are US! He cares for each one of us individually. Shepherds use crooks, so give candy canes to represent His crook.
Christ is the King of Kings
Christ is our King and a crown represents a King best. Have you ever popped Jiffy popcorn before? This packages makes a crown when you pop it. Cool and fun, huh?
Those were just a few of my favorites.
