100+ Blogmas Writing Prompts & December Blog Post Ideas for the Christian Blogger

Hi, friends. 😘 

We are officially six weeks to Christmas and I am ready. Not in terms of knowing what gifts to give or what blog posts I’m doing myself, but in terms of being in the spirit. Gimme all the carols, peppermint mochas, twinkly lights, and cozy fleece slippers. Wrap me up like a present in a snuggie and stick me in front of the fire. Also, you bet your bottom dollar NSYNC’s 1998 Christmas album has been on repeat since October. In a nut shell, Christmas is my happy place.

So, if you’re looking for Christmas blog post ideas then you have come to the right place. I’d say these are also great for general holiday blog post ideasI give you permission to skip ahead and get to the good stuff. 

But first, please don’t forget to subscribe for weekly faith and blogging encouragement! 

 



I know that some take it to the next level and blog every day for the month of December. *peers over spectacles like a grandma* Hats off to those people. I may attempt 12 Days of Blogmas but I haven’t decided yet. 

This week I have done about 500 brain dumps to come up with this list. Not all of them are specifically Christmas related, but can always be geared toward the holidays if you get creative with it. So saddle up, these are going to be 100+ Blogmas writing prompts and December blog post ideas for the Christian blogger. These ideas are great for Christian lifestyle blogs and faith blogs.

Basically, I’ve done the initial part; now all you have to do is pick one or two or five or ten and write. I’ve even broken it down by category to the best of my ability. You’re welcome. Also, if you do write a blog post inspired by one of these ideas PLEASE comment below or message me on Instagram because I want to read it! And don’t forgot to subscribe for weekly faith and blogging encouragement. It would be so appreciated. 🙂
