Not all gifts for Christmas need to be massive packages under the tree. In fact, they don’t even need to come in a package at all. If you’re looking to give the gift of service or give an experiential gift (like a trip or fun outing), then these printable gift certificates for Christmas are just what you need.
These free printable gift certificate templates allow you to present a wonderful gift from the heart to a family member or friend this holiday season.
I’ve created 6 super cute Christmas gift certificate template PDFs that you can download later in this post. These include space to write what the gift certificate is for, the recipient’s name, and the sender. Many also include a space to write in a short message.
And while it’s not technically a gift certificate, I’ve also included a cute little “Delayed Christmas Gift” notification from the North Pole for when a present hasn’t arrived yet (for whatever reason).
As with the custom gift certificates, that can be found further down the post.
And if you’re looking for editable versions, I made editable gift certificate printables for Christmas as well in my shop.
But the free version as all in this post.
