SPIRITUAL 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS
I created this religious Christmas gift idea for my sister's family (we rotate family gifts each year.)
My goal was to help her family learn more about Christ in a fun way. Each of the 12 Days of Christmas gifts correlates with a name of Christ.
Some of the gifts are serious and some are more fun. You can do a mix or even switch up some of the 12 gifts.
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 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 time, you could always make mini loaves!
CHRIST IS EMMANUEL
Give your favorite version of the Christmas story. We love this classic version of The Christmas Story found on Amazon.
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 THE 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 THE 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?

I'm one of Emily's friends and we met a long time ago. I found your post about 12 Days of Christmas while on Pinterest because I wanted to do it with my kids this year. We used to do it when I was younger and it was the best! I LOVE this idea about a Christ centered 12 Days! Thank you so much for sharing and for the tags.
You're awesome! Merry Christmas.
Bonnie T says
And where did you get the Nativity finger puppets? And do you have a poem to start this off? Thanks!
Jeanne Groberg says
I love this list, thanks! I thought of a few more ideas, just for substitutions if they are wanted:
Wonderful: "wonderful" brand pistachios or POM juice
Comforter: a homemade hot sack (rice-filled sack that you microwave to warm up and snuggle with)
Alpha and Omega: Alpha-bits cereal, or alphabet soup or pasta
Morning Star: star ornament
Savior: Life savers
Eternal Father: Dad's root beer
Holy One: donut holes/craft hole punch/swiss cheese/something else with a hole(s) in it
The Word: a Christmas story, any one you like. Or use this in place of Emmanuel above.
You really got me thinking! I love this 12 days, this is a keeper. Thanks again
I love all these ideas! I had some of these same ideas on version 2: https://www.etsy.com/listing/495783243/12-days-of-christ-version-2?ref=related-1. I'm so happy you enjoy this! Have a Merry CHRISTmas!
What is the name of the cursivery font you used on your tags?
I absolutely love Sugar Doodle for my Primary needs and Christmas time is the most wonderful time of the year of course, thank you Sugar Doodle!
Do you have any alternate ideas for version 1? I think I'd rather do something else for Mediator.... but I'm drawing a blank, and I wish I'd gotten the all three package. Please help!
oh, i know its a tricky one! if you want to upgrade your package, let me know and i'll send you a custom order the extras.
