Free Christmas Wish List Printable for Kids

The holiday season is near and your kids may already be thinking about what they’d like for Christmas. A Christmas wish list printable is a fun and simple way for them to share gift ideas.

Gift-giving during the winter months is actually tied to pagan rituals. The concept of giving gifts was later linked to Christian traditions and the story of the Magi.

When the first Christmas list was made, no one knows. But it’s now common for kids around the world to make a Christmas wish list each year.

And what could make it easier to write a wish list for Christmas than a free Christmas list template?

That’s what I’m sharing with you today, along with some fun Christmas gift ideas for kids!

How Do You Make a Good Christmas Wish List?

How to Make a Christmas Wish List

If your kids are small they might need a little help making their wishing list for Christmas.

And sometimes, coming up with the perfect Christmas gift idea for older kids (or adults) is tough, too!

If you’re sitting down with your kids to complete their Christmas wish list printable, here are some questions that can get them thinking about what gifts to add:

  • What are you most interested in right now?
  • Is there something new you’d like to learn?
  • Can you think of something you really need?
  • Are there any books you’d like to read (or have read to you?)
  • Is there something special you’d like to have to wear?
  • If you could ask for one big “want” gift, what would it be?

Asking these kinds of questions can also help you come up with your own Christmas wish list. That way, when someone asks you “What do you want for Christmas?” you’ll have an answer ready to go!
