Since it’s become a tradition for our family, and here at Stuffed Suitcase, I’m bringing you our latest installment of Christmas Scavenger Hunt Riddles! These are fun printable clues that will lead your kids around the house in search of their present. It’s even great as a christmas scavenger hunt for adults!
This series has six Christmas scavenger hunt riddles and two blank cards in case you want to write your own. You might even want to grab your favorite clues from our past Christmas scavenger hunt clues to make your ideal scavenger hunt.

For a full year of family fun check out my ultimate list of scavenger hunts!
On Christmas morning you’ll want to have wrapped the first riddle up as a package to be opened under the tree. Or you could consider handing the hunter the clue at whatever time you choose. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to find time to place all the other clues in the special spots before they open the first clue, and you don’t want them to see one of the other clues! Sometimes the divide and conquer approach works where one parent can entertain while the other hops around to place the riddles.
It’s a good idea to mark down the order you’re planning to use the Christmas scavenger hunt riddles and where they lead so you can be sure to place each riddle properly. Here is a sample Christmas scavenger hunt layout:
Open Gift for Riddle 1
Riddle 1 (dirty fork, plate) –> dishwasher (find Riddle 2)
Riddle 2 (cold as freezer) –> freezer (find Riddle 3)
Riddle 3 (sit on couch) –> couch (find Riddle 4)
Riddle 4 (dry in spot) –> dryer (find Riddle 5)
Riddle 5 (warm it fast) –> microwave (find Riddle 6)
Riddle 6 (day bright) –> coat closet (find GIFT!)
You can choose your own order for the riddles and use as many or as few as you want. A few things to keep in mind, make sure they won’t find a clue while looking for other clues, also make sure your final spot is big enough to hold the gift!
This year I also found a fun new way to dress up the riddles, christmas gift card holders (affiliate). I picked mine up at Target but amazon has some darling ones. These are a cute way to help the kids find the riddles in the hiding spots. In previous years we’ve used christmas envelopes. The clues this year are sized to work in most gift card holders.
