6 Easy Christmas Gifts {Free Printables}

6 homemade and easy Christmas gifts! These candies/treats are put in a snack-size ziplock bag and you can staple on the FREE printable bag toppers!

Above this text is a quick video overview of these easy Christmas gifts. Below is an individual picture of each Christmas bag, the supplies and/or recipes needed, and a link to download the free printable. These printables were designed by the amazing CeeCeeBelle’s! Be sure to check out their online shop for so many cute printables — I own way too many (is that even a thing?!)

A few quick notes on these Easy Christmas Gifts:

  • Each bag has it’s own printable page so you won’t have to print more than what you’ll be gifting.
  • For the pictures and video shown, the bag toppers are printed on glossy cardstock paper. (I emailed the PDF’s to Staples and had them printed there.)
  • A few things that make cutting out and folding the printables super easy is using a paper cutter (I recommend this one), and something to score the paper to make the fold neat (I recommend this one).
  • I found that Zip-loc has the nicest looking snack-size bag, but any snack size bags will work.
  • Most of these gifts are best made only 1-2 days before gifting to keep the treats at optimal freshness (oreo truffles and any with marshmallows included)
  • If you would like to have these printed and shipped to you, click here to shop.
  • Do NOT print straight from the website file; make sure to first SAVE it to your computer and then print! 🙂

Author Chelsea

Ingredients

  • 16-18 regular oreos
  • 4 ounces full fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 bag Andes Creme De Menthe Baking Chips

Instructions

  • No need to separate the oreos - you'll use the cookie and the creme.
  • In a blender or food processor, process the oreos (start with 16 and pulse 2 extra if the mixture is too wet) until you get a fine crumb consistency. Pour into a bowl.
  • Add in the softened cream cheese and mix until a thick and wet dough has been created. This takes a bit of patience. Just keep stirring, you'll get there! (I recommend using hand mixers.)
  • Roll the "dough" into even sized balls/truffles.
  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt 1/2 cup of Andes chocolate chips for 30 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir for 30 seconds and then return for 15 more seconds if they aren't all the way melted.
  • Coat the truffles in the melted Andes chocolate. Shake off excess chocolate and place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Repeat by melting the rest of the Andes chocolate and continue to dip the truffles. (I don't melt all the chocolate at once because it tends to harden fast!)
  • Let harden at room temperature before eating/placing in the ziplock bag. (Store in the fridge if not eating/gifting right away).

  1. I would love the Mrs. Claus one but it is spelled with a K. It would go perfect with the Santa hat Hershey Kisses. Can it be changed?

    1. I’m sorry, it can’t be changed. I hired a professional design team to make these so I don’t have access to change the images. The intention was to have a type of alliteration “Klaus” and “kisses” Sorry about that!

  2. When I click on the link for the free printable it doesn’t download. It opens a label that I can print. I love them, but can’t get them to download. 🙁

  3. CUTEST PROJECTS EVER!!!
    Any way you could call the Grinch Pills something else more appropriate for kiddos? Grinch Bites, Snacks, Vitamins, Morsels, Munchies, Nibbles? I would like to make these for my first graders.
    THANKS!!!
    WW

    1. Thanks Wendy! Unfortunately these are the final designs that I paid for (I didn’t create them!) so those can’t be changed. Hopefully one of the others will work!

  4. Cute ideas – only wish I could print them.

    I click on the “click here” to open and save the file so I can print and it only saves in a format that is not compatible to be opened. Can they be saved as a PDF of some common format instead of a Chrome web format?

  5. I have only been able to download the lumps of coal. When I click the link it takes me to a blank page. I just so happened to right click and saved the picture and it saved that one but the other files take me to the blank page with a small black X in the top left corner. Suggestions on how I might be able to get the others?

  6. 5 stars
    Can you please help me with the printables? When I click on the download link, it opens in a new webpage and I’m unable to print or save. Can you possibly email me the .jpg? Thank you!!!

  7. Hi! How many LUMPS OF COAL does one recipe make? Love all these cute ideas and can’t wait to make them and give them to my grandkids!!
    Thank you!

  8. I love these but when I go to print, they are not “long enough” to fit all the way across the top of the ziploc snack size bags. Any tips? TIA!

    1. Hey Candy! If you’re having issues you can print them at 105% to make them a bit bigger to fit your bags 🙂

  9. Just ordered ALL of the Christmas bag toppers. This is going to be a great addition to the gift baskets I am making this year. Do you have one that reads ‘Something for your Mistletoes?’ Or something to that effect?

    1. Awesome! I’m sure the gift baskets will look amazing! I don’t have one that has mistletoe, but that’s a great idea 🙂

  10. 5 stars
    WOW! It’s cool idea! I’m from Ukraine, I will definitely make my family on holiday such a surprise! But I do not know where I’ll find Hershey’s Kisses because this is not sold in my country((

    1. Thank you so much! Is it possible for you to order them online? I’m not sure what else could replace the kisses for that one; sorry! Maybe just some chocolate candies?

  11. 5 stars
    I am having trouble finding the Gingerbread boys. What store did you buy them from? Tried Target and Kroger…thank you for such cute ideas!

    1. I actually did find them at Kroger (Smiths). Maybe you could try Wal-Mart? Sorry you’re having a hard time finding them!

  12. Thank you so much…these are so adorable! I think I will use double-sided tape instead of staples, so the bags don’t get holes!

    1. Thank you! I wish I could tell you, but I’m really not sure the exact amount. I’m sure it also varies depending on the printer!

  13. Please send me all the printouts! I so need them! I can’t open them! I’m so excited to use them! But can’t get them?. Thank u in advance!

  14. Loved all of these cute ideas…and the cute colorful labels…making these for Christmas for my 10 grandchildren and to put in packages I am mailing to family! Thank you ever so much!❤️

  15. Since I like these templates, I was wondering if you could make one called Reindeer Nose Repair Kit or Rudolph’s Spare Noses, so that I can use the red m&m’s and either add the template to this pin or email me the template. I would greatly appreciate it.

    1. Hi Amanda! I love those ideas 🙂 I didn’t actually design these; I hired a company to do that, but will definitely keep those in mind if I do another set of these toppers!!

      1. Oh, okay…well bummer lol. I researched on how I could use the red m&m’s since the bag comes with green & red, and saw the Rudolph’s spare noses or repair kit. I guess i’ll see if I can use one of those templates…I just wanted to stick to the same design. Thanks for the reply!!
