A CHRIST-CENTERED 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS
This 12 Days of CHRIST is the perfect way to spread some cheer, give some fun gifts, and focus on Christ this Christmas season!
If you’ve been around here for a while, you know that I absolutely love creating and giving the 12 Days of Christmas to someone each year.
OTHER 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS VERSIONS WE’VE GIVEN:
- Sweet & Simple 12 Days of Christmas (Our go-to! It’s perfect for families, widows, co-workers, friends)
- 12 Days of Christmas Symbols
- 12 Days of Christmas For Guys
- 12 Days of Christmas For Missionaries
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.
When I first created this gift for my sister’s family (we rotate which sibling we have each year), my hope was that her children could 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 both serious and fun gifts are important, especially when children are involved. But don’t worry, the gifts could easily be switched up to fit the recipient better.
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. We love this classic version of The Christmas Story found on Amazon.
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 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?
HOW TO GIVE THE 12 DAYS OF CHRIST-MAS
Wrap up each gift and attach the corresponding 12 Days of Christ tags to the gift. None of the tags are numbered, so your gift recipient can open whichever gift they want each day!
Each gift tag has a scripture reference where that name of Christ is found, however I thought it would be fun to include an explanation of what that name means and how it ties in with each gift.
So I’ve also created companion cards that have the verse and explanation of the name to make it simpler.
