I love the 12 Days of Christmas. It’s a fun way to get your kiddos excited for the holiday season, and it’s a great way to make the magic of the holiday season really stretch. However, it can be hard to come up with your own 12 Days of Christmas ideas, especially if you want to celebrate at work! Fortunately, I scoured the internet for the best 12 Days of Christmas ideas. Here’s what they are:
12 Days Of (Christian) Christmas Ideas

If this doesn’t get your grumpy coworker in the mood for the holidays, I am really not sure what will.

Three: Packs of sticky notes for the coming year (in cute patterns)
Four: A pack of food items that come in fours (jelly, popcorn tins, etc)
Five: $5 gift card to the local convenience store
Six: Six-pack of candy (I like Reese’s, but you can alter them to your coworkers)
Seven: Seven lottery tickets
Eight: 8-ounce holiday soap from Bath and Body (these are usually $2 around the holidays)
