12 Days of Christmas gift! 12 pieces of candy, each labeled with a QR code to an inspirational Christmas video! A fun gift idea for teens, families, friends, and neighbors! This post contains affiliate links.
All of the videos are New Testament based, and the Studio C comedy videos are good, clean fun for the whole family! If you printed out the QR codes last year and are looking for new codes to share with friends this year I’ve got you covered! I have new labels and 12 more videos in a new color scheme to switch things up a bit! I even switched out the candy. Click here to see the candies we used this year (cheaper than Ghirardelli).
12 Days of Christmas Advent Gift
One of the challenges of giving gifts to teens is coming up with something practical, yet engaging. These 12 days of Christmas gifts won’t end up on a shelf collecting dust, and won’t end up in the trash (at least not right away). It includes 12 Christmas videos to brighten their day in the 12 days leading up to Christmas. It also includes CHOCOLATE.
Here is what some families and youth groups are saying!
12 Days of Christmas Gift Videos
The QR codes link to a selection of Youtube videos from the Latter-day Saints Channel, The Piano Guys, The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, Studio C, and the Strive to Be Channel. The QR codes are on a printable sheet that can be downloaded in the supplies section and at the end of the post. There are 2 versions: 2021 and 2022. This way you can alternate which ones you use and aren’t passing out the same codes every year! All video links are shared at the end of the post if you’d like to preview them ahead of time.
Each QR code is cut out and attached to the back of a piece of candy. You can use Ghirardelli chocolate squares, peppermint patties, or a variety of holiday candies depending on your budget. We’ve given the young women $5 fleece throws or cozy socks in the past, always keeping the budget between $3-$5 per girl. This gift fit right within that budget.
- 16 oz. containers with lids
- Ghirardelli Chocolates (or any kind of candy)
- Paper Shred (optional)

These containers are perfect for holding 12 pieces of candy. You can add a bit of paper shred to fill in any gaps, but it really isn’t necessary. The printable lids fit these containers EXACTLY. If you use different containers simply attach the label to the front or side, or tie the label on with string!

QR Code Option (click Links Below)
Device-Free Option (Click Links Below)
For those who would prefer a device-free option, I’ve included 12 scripture references from the New Testament and Book of Mormon that can be used instead. I had a request from someone who said many of the youth in her church don’t have cell phones, so scripture references would work perfectly. Another option would be to find 12 quotes about Christmas and print those, one for each day.
(These scriptures include verses from the Book of Mormon and New Testament)
