12 days of Christmas gift calendar

Choosing the right present for someone can often be tricky. why not do something a little different a do a 12 days of Christmas gift calendar for the ones you love! I think they a great idea and give someone something to look forward to opening on the lead up to christmas. I thought of this idea after I made a wedding countdown calendar for my sister in law where she had a treat to open every day for the last 12 days before her big day to help even more with the excitement.

To present you calendar there are lots of fun creative pretty ways to do it. You could wrap a box in Christmas wrapping paper and number your wrapped gifts 1 – 12

Or do a lucky dip bag where they can choose one at random every day. If you live with the person you could hide and do a treasure hunt to find it.

I will share with you some ideas for what you can get a women, man and child for the build up to christmas. obviously you can tailor them for the person you’re buying for. Some of my Man ideas can be used for women and vice versa! These are just some ideas and if I was to do them for my family the thought of things I would put in them.

I hope this gives you some good ideas!
