Twelve Days of Christmas Stories Free Printables

Enjoy this fun Twelve Days of Christmas gift idea. Each day there's a story with coordinating treat.

If you're looking for a great way to add some meaning back into your Christmas season, or if you need a care package to mail to someone far away, my Twelve Days of Christmas: A Story and a Treat is the perfect gift idea! Basically, you print out a bunch of Christmas stories and buy little goodies that go along with each story. Each treat is individually wrapped and labeled and then each day during the twelve days before Christmas, you open one treat and eat it while you read the story! Fun, right?

Get all the details on my original post HERE, including the stories ready to be printed!

To make it even easier for you to put this gift together, I've created some free printables to go along with the stories.

There's a poem to explain the gift to the person you are sending it to. 

Twelve Days of Christmas gifts

The poem reads:

Twelve days left 'til Christmas.
Let's savor each one.
We hope that this gift
will bring lots of fun.

Each day there's a story,
they're all really sweet.
Along with each story
is a special treat.

These tales remind us
that Christ is the reason
we give love and kindness
each Holiday season.

There are also matching numbered tags to tie to each present.

  1. Thank you so much for this! Our ward is doing a service project for a recent convert missionary who just left from our ward. We are sending him monthly packages. I especially loved this idea. And thank you for the beautiful printables!

    1. You're welcome! This is a great gift for missionaries. It sounds like you've got a great ward if they are taking such care with that missionary. :)

  2. For some reason I cannot get the beautiful tags to print! The poem did just fine. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong. Any suggestions? I love this - thank you so much for putting it all together!

    1. Oh no Stephanie! I'm not sure what the problem is, but send me an email and I will send you the file. jennifer @ thecraftpatchblog (dot) com

  3. I was hoping to get the information for this. The links don't seem to open. I wondered if this was something that you still had the information for?

    1. The links work just fine for me, I'm so sorry they were giving you trouble. Try entering the url's:

      Let me know if that works for you!

    2. I still cannot get it to open. I don't know if its my web browser that I am using. Is there any way you can email it to me [email protected] Thank you for everything. This seems like a super cute idea!!

    3. Sure, I'll email it to you. But most of the time when people can't open things, it's because they are at work and their ISP blocks it.

  4. Is there anyway you would message the word document version - I am happy to pay. I am going to do this for six different people/families and it's just from me so I need to change the "we" to "I".

  5. Also is there anyway to get the word document of the stories. I notice some grammar edit errors in several of the stories. I am happy to edit them and send them back to you?! also, happy to pay. Very excited - thank you!

    1. Hi Colee, unfortunately the original documents were on my old laptop that died. All I have left is what's available to download!


Hey readers! Leave me a note... I read each and every comment and I love to hear from you!
