12 Sexy Nights of Christmas Bed

Christmas is my favorite time of the year.  I love the smells, the meaning of the season, the giving hearts, and the love that permeates the air! As a rule I try not to get caught up in the busyness of the Christmas season but busyness always seems to sneak in. I have to remind myself that simple is best and it always is! For those of you who are just like me and tend to get busy, you might put quality time with your spouse to the back burner. This year, with Diva Becca’s fabulous idea, we are going to change that.

To get these printables… scroll ALL the way to the bottom of this post for the download link!

*      *      *      *      *

You are going to make plenty of time for your spouse with The 12 Sexy Days of Christmas!

 You will fulfill their wishes, spend plenty of quality time together, and make all their Christmas dreams come true!

 Before we begin Becca is going to tell you a little about how this post came about…

“Three years ago, I was trying to come up with a great Christmas present for my husband on a very small budget.  I asked him what he wanted and he replied, “You KNOW what I want.” I just laughed and said, “No really, what do you want?” He looked me straight in the eye and said, “Why can’t I want that? I just want YOU.”  So I decided that for Christmas, I wanted to give my husband a happy, stress-free wife and a WHOLE lot of lovin’.

 And that is how The 12 Lays of Christmas came about!

 I sat down and wrote up some flirty poems to add a sexy twist to the 12 Days of Christmas.  My friend, Cher, even came up with some fun printables to go with them on her blog, Love Actually.  And I have to say- it was a major HIT!  Hand downs- his favorite Christmas present EVER!  *wink*  And I’m SO excited that Michelle has come up with this NEW and IMPROVED version to share with you!   Take it away, Michelle!”

Without any further ado, allow me to introduce you to the…


My husband and I have one very important Christmas tradition that was started our first year of marriage. The only gift we are allowed to exchange with each other is a love letter that reflects upon the year, our growing love, and the excitement we have for next year.  Now what does that have to do with this post?! Thanks to Becca’s idea and Paige’s help I’m adding the 12 Sexy Days of Christmas to our Christmas traditions because I love it THAT much!!! After you read this post you are going to want to add this to your traditions too!!!


 The Gift

Grab a cute little box, I used a snowflake take-out box, to place all of your lovely, sassy, flirty, and teasing ornaments into.  Place the first day of Christmas ornament, any additional items, and the note card into the box. Put on the finishing touches by tying the 12 Days of Sexy Christmas tag to the box with a ribbon. Place the gift next to your tree for your spouse to discover. Upon opening the gift place the ornament on the tree as a reminder of what’s in store! Each day you will prepare a sexy rendezvous for the two of you. On each new day place the ornament into the box for your excited spouse to open!


The Ornaments

Aren’t these ornaments beautiful?! A big shout out to Sameeha of The Inked Leaf for making these printables.  She is divine to work with and always makes what I’ve imagined ah-maz-ing.  Head on over and take a peek at her lovely designs, you will see why we love her so much!

To make each ornament or tag into a hanging ornament, punch a hole at the top and tie a ribbon through.

Each ornament has an accompanying little gift to help you fulfill your sexy deeds.

The items needed are:

Day 1: One Pear Sugar Scrub or any body scrub will do

Day 2: Two chocolate turtles or Dove chocolates

Day 3: Three hershey kisses

Day 4: One Whistle

Day 5: Five golden rings tied with a ribbon around a several lingerie outfits.

Day 6: Six Rolo’s

Day 7: One bottle of Temptations Dreamy Bubble Bath or Feeling Smitten Bath Bombs (these were on Oprah’s favorite things, they are ah-maz-ing!!!) along with Crayons and Finger Paints

Day 8: One box of Milk Duds

Day 9: A romantic CD

Day 10: One Mountain Dew

Day 11: One toy pipe/flute Whistle

Day 12: A ticket for a private drumming session and the note finishing the 14 Sexy Days of Christmas (these are found on the last page of the printables)



The Tree 

Thanks to my hubbies snipping skills we put together this twig tree. Making your own tree will be simple and easy all you need to do is find a tree with pretty twigs, snip them off at the length you would like, and carefully arrange the twigs to look like a pretty tree! Place your twig tree into a mason jar that you’ve covered with burlap and ribbon. Place in your room in a cozy place that is easily seen by the two of you.

Some of you might be thinking this is way too much work for just one gift. I completely agree with you! Keep this tree up all year round and create a sexy countdown for different occasions. On Valentines replace the red ribbon with a pink one and make sexy coupons out of  hearts to hang from the tree. In March write reasons they are “lucky” on shamrocks and use a green ribbon. For April, use a pastel ribbon and hang easter eggs with steamy gifts inside them. In July use stars to hang on the tree and tie with a patriotic ribbon. When Halloween arrives hang treats on the tree with little coupon notes wrapped around them and use an orange ribbon. For November hang leaves from the tree and tie with a brown or white ribbon. And we all know what to do in December! See how much fun this twig tree made just for the two of you will become!!!


 The End

On the last day of the Sexy Days of Christmas, after you have fulfilled your treat, present this little enticing note.

Is it the end? No this is just the beginning!!!  As long as you keep your spouse a priority, the two of you will enjoy countless love making sessions!!!

    1. Hi Madison! Scroll on down to the very end of the post until you see the pink bar with white writing that says: “Click to Download Our” – give that pink bar a click and you should be good to go! 🙂 Enjoy!

    1. Hi Jaime! Thanks for reaching out! 🙂 If you scroll down to the very end of the post, you’ll see a pink box with white wording that says, “Click to Download Our” followed by “12 Sexy Nights of Christmas.” Give that pink box a click and the PDF download should open for ya! Let us know if you have any other questions! Merry Christmas! Xoxo

  1. Hey! I love this idea. But is there a blank version of the ornament or the tag? I would like to change some of them slightly like the bathtub one, I don’t have a bathtub but I can’t seem to figure out a way to edit them. Can you please help me, I really want to do this idea.

    1. Hi Maria! So glad you love the idea. 🙂 Unfortunately, there isn’t a blank version of either the ornament or the tag but don’t let that stop you! Many readers switch/replace things to make the idea work for them and I’d definitely encourage you to do the same. You could create your own ornament to replace the bathtub one, or even try tracing one of the original ornaments and adding your own wording! 🙂 Hope this helps! Xoxo

      1. HI! At the very bottom of the post there is a pink button that says “click to download” I just gave it a try and it worked, want to try that and let us know if that doesn’t work?

  2. Hey- I’m having a hard time finding the printables for the “bed” version. I can find the ornaments, but really would like the other version… any help?

    1. Hi Amy! If you scroll to the very end of the post, you’ll see a pink box with white wording that says “Click to Download Our,” followed by “12 Sexy Nights of Christmas.” Give that pink box a click and you should be good to go! 🙂 Let us know if you have any other questions! Xoxo

  3. I’m so excited to try this!! I have always wanted to do 12 days of Christmas for my husband in a sexy way… but I am not creative with stuff like this!

    One question…. we are not fans of lingerie or dancing. Do you have any other suggestions on what to replace that with?

    1. Hi Des! Thank you so much for your sweet comment! 🙂 I think you guys are in for a real treat with this idea- it’s A LOT of fun! To replace the lingerie and dancing, here are a few ideas (and titles if you need them!): ice-play (Ice-Ice Baby), full body massage (Mistletoe Massage), a naughty gift of any kind (Naughty or Nice?), string up Christmas lights in the bedroom (Let it Glow), back-to-back sexy time (Checkin’ it Twice) etc. Those are just off the top of my head but DEFINITELY feel free to switch things up and make it your own! Let us know if you have any other questions and hope you have a very Merry Christmas! Xoxo <3

  4. I was hoping to download the sexy nights of christmas countdown, but the links take you to the days of christmas ornament printables.

    1. Hi Kat! Thanks for reaching out! 🙂 This post contains TWO different sets of printables so I can definitely see your confusion! However, if you scroll down to very end of the post, you’ll see a pink box with the wording “Click to Download Our” followed by light green wording that says “12 Sexy Nights of Christmas.” If you click on that pink box, you’ll get the printables you need. Let us know if you need help with anything else and hope you enjoy the countdown! Xoxo

  5. Hi! What a great idea. I took this idea and made it my own. We don’t have a bathtub big enough for two and we don’t like soda or candies like Rolo. So I’m going to rewrite them with different ideas.

    Also, just a note– the 12 Days of Christmas start on December 25th and end on Epiphany, January 6th.

    1. Lisa, thank you SO much for sharing what made this successful for you!:) While we like to use this idea as a specific countdown to Christmas Day itself (ie. the 25th), feel free to make it your own by tweaking the days as you wish! We hope you and your sweetie enjoy this idea for years to come!

  6. I love this idea, but my husband can’t have chocolate or Mountain Dew since he can’t have any caffeine. Also, he doesn’t like lingerie. 🙁

    1. Kendra, thank you so much for your comment! Feel free to make any necessary adjustments or substitutions according to your (and your sweetie’s) tastes! You might also consider taking a look at some of our other festive posts- there’s truly something for everyone! Wishing the both of you a very Merry Christmas! 🙂

    1. Thank you for your comment, Stephanie! We definitely agree that it’s great way to add a little Christmas ‘spice!’ 😉 Hope you enjoy!

    1. Hi Becky! We’re SO glad you love it and would like to try it out! In terms of downloading, be sure to click directly on the “Click To Download Our” bar near the bottom of the post. That should bring up your PDF file!:) If you’re still having trouble accessing it, let us know! We’d be happy to have a member of our Customer Service team email it to you!

  7. I LOVE THIS IDEA! I attempted to do it last yea but ran out of time. I had a branch last year but gave it away (because I thought I wouldn’t use it) so this year I found a $20.00 pre-lit branch type tree at Wal-Mart. I ran the printable off on white cardstock and laminated them. I also set up the tree on a round table in my bedroom with a few plastic diamond looking things to cover the boring bottom of the tree. My husband and i have a peacock theme going on so I added a few peacock feathers and peacock bags to the table for some decor. It looks fantastic!

    I would love to order these printables but have the colors changed. Where can I do that?

    1. Hi Iliana! Wow! Thank you for your fabulous comment! I love that you had them laminated to make them more sturdy… great idea! And if you want to order them but in a different color, you can contact Sameeha, the designer. She is linked up on the website! Good luck!

    1. Hi Crystal! If you don’t have a tub, maybe you can just create a “spa” type environment in your room with candles, some soothing music, and maybe give each other massages?

    1. Hi Jenn! You should have started 12 days before Christmas. If you haven’t started yet, that’s ok. If you start tomorrow, you’ll go past Christmas. If you start on Christmas the two of you will enjoy each other for the week and a half after Christmas, which is a great way to start the year! Hope this helps! Merry Christmas! xox

  8. Hi! I LOVE this idea. My husband is not a romantic type or appreciate things of this nature at all. I would love to do it but if rejection arise it hurts so much specially around the holidays when you most expect that magical moment. We are celebrating our 8th year anniversary on the weekend because it landed on a Wednesday but ofcourse nothing special for Wednesday at alland that makes sad and upset. Any suggestions of what can i do?

    1. Hi Sandra! Ugh, I feel ya girl! This has happened in my house a time or two as well. My biggest suggestion is that you tell your spouse your feelings. Let him know that you enjoy making holidays, celebrations, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. special and important. I think the two of you could work out something that makes both of you happy, if you are open and willing to communicate. Another suggestion would be to give this gift with a caveat that saying no is not an option! Then both of you can relax and enjoy the experience together! Hope this helps. Best of luck girlie, happy anniversary, and Merry Christmas. xox

    2. You just described my husband. BUT I think we can all agree that our husbands do have one thing in common, if you catch my drift. I’m sure my husband will think the first day is silly, but he’ll definitely get over it by the second day!

  9. I love this idea. We have a 9 month old, are due again in March, so the romance department has lacked a little bit. My husband and I are going out of town this weekend, with out the baby, and I was trying to figure out a way to do something fun and more romantic, that leads up to Christmas, on a very tight budget, so this is perfect!! He is going to love this. Thank you guys for sharing your creativity!! 🙂

    1. Kelly, congratulations!!! I’m sure you two enjoyed your weekend away! I’m so glad you found this idea and that you were able to fit it into your Christmas surprise! You are so welcome! xox

  10. This is a wonderful idea! I planned a pricey getaway for my hubs for Christmas, but I’ll be surprising/kidnapping him the day of, so I didn’t have anything to give him on Christmas. This will be a fun, easy add on to make up for it! I love the printable, though I wish the text was editable so I could change some of the wording to account for the supplies I already have to work with. Maybe I’ll have to make some of my own.

    1. Tabitha, sounds like such an exciting surprise for your hubby!!! So much fun! Totally make your own, he’s not going to care what they look like, we know what he is really going to care about, wink! xox

  11. This is such a great idea. One of the best I have seen in a long time. I’m so bored with the same old gifts for my husband. Since it is just him and I, I have been looking for a way to bring magic back to the Christmas season. Thank you so much for the idea and the FREE printable. I will defiantly be looking at your site more often for more awesome ideas!

    1. Heather thank you for your comment! You are so welcome! I agree making memories together is way more fun and lasting then anything you could buy. I know this will bring magic back to Christmas and to your marriage!

      Our goal is to help couples make lasting memories together by strengthening their marriage one date at a time. If you are new to our site, I would highly suggest taking a peek at our Free Love Calendars, you’ll find the most current month on the right side of the screen on the sidebar. We have scheduled out a whole month of little love ideas and date nights from our site. My hubby and I print these out, one for him and one for me, and look forward to each days activity.

      Enjoy searching our site, you will find plenty of free or inexpensive ideas to last you two several years. Merry Christmas and happy new year. xox

  12. I cannot wait to try this. Was looking around for the perfect and inexpensive Christmas idea for my hubby. He’s such a simple guy that it’s hard to get creative. Just a great way to put a fun spin on what they really want haha! Thanks so much!

    1. Libny you are welcome! So excited that you found this post! The two of you will remember this so much more than any amount of money you would have spent! Enjoy making memories together and celebrating your marriage this Christmas! Chances are the two of you will do this again! ha Merry Christmas! xox

  13. Is there anywhere I could order these already made? My printer is broke and I would love to give this to my husband….

    1. Hi Trina, unfortunately this is not something that comes pre-made. I would suggest sending the file to a printer in your area. Office Max, Staples, Fed Ex, UPS, etc all print copies. You can even email the pdf to them. Call one of these printers and ask them how to go about emailing them files to print. Best of luck girl! xox

  14. So in love with this, and want to do this for my husband this year, but I’m having trouble coming up with something to replace the tub days as we don’t have one. any assistance would be great! so excited to implement some sexy into our christmas

    1. Hi Aimee! You can still do this! Instead of the tub, why not have a steamy shower for two?! Set up the scene with candles, some yummy body wash, and neatly rolled up towels, etc. Complete the bath session with a full body rub, so grab some silky smooth body oil. Get creative and have fun!!! Enjoy and Merry Christmas! xox

  15. Day/night seven tonight!! My husband is super happy. I’ve never given him a better gift — he is now a BiG fan!

    1. Hi Shakira! Towards the bottom of the post you will see the heading “Printables” The first sentence has “12 Days of Sexy Christmas” highlighted in pink, click on that and the digital pdf will open. Good luck and enjoy! xox

  16. Thank you! I printed these and each page came out on only half of an 8.5×11 paper. Is there a way to make these larger so they are easier to read?

    1. Bethany, oh no. The printable printed up on a full sheet of paper for me, so I’m guessing it’s your printer settings. Check your printer settings, select fit to page. Let me know if you need more help!

  17. This is truly adorable! I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVVEEE how this turned out!! The pics are gorgeous, & I love the little tree!! AHHHH!!!

  18. I did 12 Days of Christmas last year for my husband and found this after I had already purchased all his gifts…so I shared it with a girlfriend who did it, with great success, for her husband. I promised I would surprise my husband with 12 Lays of Christmas in 2013 and am so thankful for you all sharing this idea! It is absolutely, hands down, the BEST gift ANY husband would appreciate! On behalf of my husband, I thank you in advance 😉 Merry Christmas!

    1. I totally agree with you! Both of you get 12 days of lovin’ what could be better then that! Enjoy the 12 Lays of Christmas and keep this idea tucked away for next Christmas! Yay, thanks for sharing and I’m so glad they loved it. Your hubby is welcome, ha! Merry Christmas and enjoy your countdown! xox

  19. This is the best idea I have seen in a while. I have it all printed off and can’t wait to have it ready for my hubby to enjoy. Thanks for the great idea. I will definitely be stopping back by again!!!!

    1. Why thank you Jamie!!! I happen to love it too! Your hubby is in for a treat! Keep an eye out this whole month. We have some ah-maz-ing ideas in store!!! Enjoy the countdown and Merry Christmas! xox
