Printable Christmas Gift Tags with Scripture

Keeping our family focused on Christ during the Christmas season is important. As much as we parents try to make sure that gifts and “stuff” aren’t getting in the way of that focus (and for good reason), did you know that there are many ways gift-giving can point us and our children TO Christ? It’s true!  

We can teach our children about the perfect gift of Jesus Christ, the perfect GIVER God the Father, tell them about the importance of giving all we have back to God joyfully, and give to others as an act of worship and to share the love of Jesus. Those are big lessons!

Our attitude toward giving (and receiving) and our focus in the gift-giving process is a big part of that teaching. We can instruct our children in the godly virtues of selflessness, generosity, and gratitude while filling their hearts with the truth of God and His Word.

What an incredible opportunity!

It’s a chance we don’t want to miss in our home. There are several things we do to keep our family intentional in these areas.

  • Our kids have never written wish lists. Instead, they write GIVING lists.
  • We spend time talking about special ways we can serve others as a family and individually over the holidays.
  • We read the Scripture and remind each other over again about the real meaning of Christmas — the good news of Jesus Christ — and how we can be a part of sharing that story to those around us each year. 

If you’re feeling like Christmas has become more of a battle with entitlement, or simply too much focus on presents, start taking small shifts in the direction you want and over time you’ll find that your kids’ attitudes have changed. Your kids’ “normal” will reflect the habits of your family. And habits take time and intentional effort. Here are some ideas:

  • Cancel the toy catalogs and make a World Vision catalog your new holiday season “normal.”
  • Make a tradition of writing gift-giving lists after Thanksgiving dinner and brainstorm DIY gift projects.
  • Start with one service project a week and choose things that YOU can easily manage in this season of life.

You can do this! Small changes matter. 

A simple way to keep the heart of your gift-giving where it should be is to use Scripture in how you accessorize your gifts! You can write scripture in the greeting cards, right onto the wrapping paper, or onto the gift tags. It might seem simplistic, but we are visual people and all those little images and visual reminders really do contribute toward an atmosphere. Why not saturate it with God’s Word!?

Free Printable Christmas Gift Tags That Use Scripture! 

It can be challenging to find gift tags with a theme other than Santa, let alone some that include Scripture.  So I created these four sets of Scripture Christmas gift tags that you and your children can use in your gift-giving this year. These printable gift tags are custom illustrated and your download will include both ESV and KJV versions.

  13. Thanks for the gift cards!

  14. I love the gift tags! What a great addition to our holiday gift giving… helps keep the focus where it should be! Thank you

  15. We are going through a very difficult time financially right now. We are a family of 8. My husband has recently taken on a second job to help make ends meet. Our oldest daughter is getting married in January and we don’t have money to help with that or to even buy the clothing all of us will need. It would bless us so much.

  16. Those tags will definitely be used this year! Thank-you for creating them. 🙂

  17. How would the winnings bless our family: oh so many different ways! But one of the things we like to do…is be outside.

    When we moved into our home about 3yrs ago we were blessed by family with money as a house warming gift. We took that money and purchased a trampoline and playground for our kids. Our kids lost their trampoline last year in a storm and we have been unable to replace it. So that would be top of our list…as well as some major sized ground anchors! ;D

  18. Thanks for making this worldwide! I’m reading this from Canada!

  19. The gift tags look great – a great idea 🙂

  20. Winning would be so helpful – we’ve had a lot of unexpected (& expected) expenses – cars, medical, home. More expenses are coming (and those are just the ones we know about, let alone anything unexpected). $500 would be super helpful.

  21. Thank you for the tags and the giveaway opportunity. All of the contributors are great resources for our family as well.

  22. Thank you for doing this! I would sure put the money to good use and it would take the pressure off of Christmas.

  23. This looks like a neat, Christ based advent. Wish I hadn’t already gotten a different one.

  24. Winning would bless my family by helping us to focus more on the real reason for Christmas. We are doing something different this year than we have in years past. Instead of doing a gift advent we are doing a STEAM advent, so there is an activity instead of a gift each day. Plus, we are giving the gift of an activity instead of toys, which will actually be a delayed gratification since the activity doesn’t happen until mid-February.

  25. Oh, this would change our whole Christmas! Thank you for the opportunity!

  26. We are currently awaiting the arrival of our third (surprise) baby which changed our finances significantly this year and for hopefully ust the first half of next year. So we find ourselves unable to meet our monthly budget requirements – which also means no purchasing anything for Christmas! We are very frugal anyway, but would liek to get the kids just a little something and somehow bless our neighbor with food.

  27. I love this idea of a giving list. Thank you for the kjv Verse tags!!!

  28. We are between jobs so it is always exciting to see how God will choose to provide. He always does.

  29. Appreciate this very generous giveaway! Enjoy your blog very much and am excited for the opportunity to check out all the other bloggers and pages!

  30. Winning would bless our family tremendously because my husband has recently had a career change which we are so thankful for…more time home and not traveling, but it is a substantial paycut. Somethings are worth more than others and we are grateful for the new opportunity the Lord has provided and very thankful for this giveaway.

  31. This is wonderful! It would be such a blessing!

  42. This will be such a blessing to a couple lucky families! Thanks for the chance!

  43. Merry Christmas!!!

  44. I love the idea of writing a giving list for kids to find ways to give to and bless others. So happy I stumbled on this post before the craziness of the season. I’m reading others posts and feel maybe I’m not as deserving as them of the giveaway money but as a homeschool mom of 3 one income is very tight and our dryer just began making terrible sounds; hoping we won’t have to buy a new one. It was already not looking good for gift buying budget…

  45. The gift tags are beautiful. Thank you!

  46. Love the gift tags! What an incredible giveaway!

  50. I am always encouraged by the content you put out! What a generous giveaway!

  51. I have really enjoyed the KJV scripture options your blog provides. I am currently considering doing a Bible Verse memory challenge next year, and I know your blog has offered Scripture cards before so I am going to look into it!

  52. What a blessing this would be… I would purchase presents for a family in need. Pay off some medical bills and put some into savings. This is so generous for you all to do. Merry Christmas and God Bless!!!!

  53. I like your idea of doing Scripture on gift tags. What about Scripture on the tree as well? I knew one family that only used colors and ornaments that symbolized Jesus on her tree. I thought that was an interesting perspective

    1. I love that idea!

  54. Thank you for the gift tags!!!!!

  55. Thank you!! What a great idea!

  64. I would use this money to help with some mission trip expenses.

  65. I have been thinking a lot about Christmas lately as we develop family traditions with our 2-year old. Thank you for these wonderful and practical ideas!

  66. We love to practice hospitality and I enjoy making food for others to enjoy; our limited income (my husband is a full-time seminary student) sometimes makes us have to think twice about this kind of hospitality – my desire this holiday season is that this would not be the case. We would love to win the prize to serve these ends!

  67. Thank you for the sweet tags and giveaway! I cannot even imagine winning a gift card of that magnitude. It would be such a blessing as things have been tight and super difficult for us. I recently had to start working to help pay medical bills while still doing school at home with my kids. I pray that the giveaway finds those that truly need the help this holiday season. Thank you for blessing two families!

  68. We would be able to pay down medical debt and find a few small presents for our kids. Holidays have been a bit lean for a while. Thankful that it isn’t about what we get, it’s about being together. Love my family.

  69. Oh my goodness! I so so so love these adorable gift tags! Thank you so much for the template! Super easy to use and what a treasure!

  70. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win such a generous prize drawing! I have been enjoying your blog for sometime and the practical and useful suggestions, such as teachings the kids the value of giving over getting at Christmas time, has been such a treat!
