Each day surprise him or her with either a:

  • DATE IDEA to celebrate the season and have fun!

Christmas Countdown Spouse Details

To construct your unique Christmas advent, simply print out our printable bundle on card stock.

*Tip to Save on Printer Ink: Be sure to look through the PDF first and only print actual countdown envelopes and corresponding cards that you will use for all 25 days. We’ve included direction and divider pages to easily organize all of the printable components– but these pages don’t need to be printed.*

Then, cut out each envelope and place adhesive on the flaps. Fold and adhere- easy, peasy! Next, place each card in its coordinating envelope and clip these materials to a gorgeous piece of ribbon. I strung my envelopes on 2 tiers of red ribbon that each measured about 5.5 feet long.

Christmas Advent Calendar Construction

We’ve included a handy suggested schedule that sprinkles each type of loving gesture throughout the month of December. But, if you have a Holiday party scheduled on the day we suggest a date night, don’t despair. Our countdown is completely flexible! Courtney included blank cards to help you customize your individual Christmas schedule!

Christmas Advent Envelopes

This unique Christmas calendar is your solution for finding the perfect gift for your spouse this season! He or she will be BLOWN AWAY by your creativity and thoughtfulness. Instead of giving him or her 1 typical present, surprise your love with a truly unique Christmas calendar that keeps on giving… all month long!

Family Christmas Countdown

This amazing countdown is packed with 25 activities to create meaningful Holiday memories. We’ve thought of everything you’d need to bond as a family each day leading up to Christmas! By pairing festive green and red graphics with darling activities, Courtney has created the perfect modern day advent calendar that the whole family will enjoy!

Family Christmas Countdown Pinterest

For this DIY Holiday countdown, we’ve included templates for you to print on paper bags. The best news?… Any regular lunch paper bag will work! I chose to print mine on white paper bags that I found at Michael’s craft store to go with my seasonal decor. Since, these “Celebrate It” brand bags are slightly smaller, Courtney included a separate template for you to use so your graphics fit perfectly. You can’t go wrong with this printable pack!

Family Advent Calendar Materials

After printing your bags, all you need to do is fill them with a corresponding activity card. Feel free to also include your kiddo’s favorite little treat for an added surprise!

This countdown promises family fun, adventure, and treasured memories! For each day until Christmas, we’ve provided either a link or a coordinating printable to help you pull off the suggested activity.

Holiday Minivan Express

When your bags are assembled, attach them with decorative clothespinsto a long piece ribbon. Courtney included several fun embellishments in the pack to make your display even more festive. I also added a few rhinestones to several of the designs for extra sparkle!

Don’t want to print on paper bags? No problem! Simply, print and cut out the countdown/activity cards on standard card stock paper. Then, attach the materials to your ribbon pieces using decorative clips! Whether you print on paper bags or not, we guarantee this adorable “Days Until Christmas” countdown will look fabulous in your home.

Family Christmas Advent Construction

Can you imagine the smile on your child’s face as he or she opens up a bag containing everything you need to host a hot cocoa party? Or what about finding special notes encouraging them to perform small random acts of kindness this season? Counting down the days until Christmas has never been so fun! Our exclusive advent calendar will help you take the focus off of receiving material gifts AND onto spending quality time as a family!

  1. I am SOOOO in love with these countdowns I can’t even HANDLE it!!! They turned out AH-mAZING, Courtney & Candice!!!!! You two are brilliant together!!!

    1. Hi Nicole! You will need to print 1 envelope and 1 corresponding card per day for 25 days on each countdown. Due to the nature of this type of project (stretching over multiple days) you will be using more printer ink than a project that only includes printables for 1 date night activity. I hope that helps! When you download the project, be sure to look through the PDF and only print the actual countdown envelopes/cards (as opposed to the section divider pages)– that will save printer ink too! So glad you loved these products! 🙂

  2. I love all of your printables!! Would you please consider to make these also for the single people that are just in the dating world? I love all the ideas but can’t use all of them due to the usage of spouse and husband on them.
    Thank you so much for all your creativity and great ideas that you give.
