Since Thanksgiving, you've been blasting Christmas music, shopping major deals, bundling up in your coziest sweaters, and getting into the holiday spirit with hot cocoa and flannel PJs. The wait is almost unbearable, but Christmas is right around the corner — and you know what that means: it's time for the annual naughty and nice gift exchange with your best friends. It’s one of your favorite traditions for Christmas, and your adorable gift has been wrapped perfectly under the tree for weeks while you wait for all of your besties to be together. Of course, you'll need some witty captions for naughty or nice Christmas gifts, because you're not entirely sure which list you're on this year.

Totally kidding. You know you've been good, but you're definitely going to take a ton of pictures when you and your gals open up your gifts and share them on Instagram along with some naughty Christmas quotes. There are a variety of festive captions to choose from, but if you’re being completely honest, maybe the naughty list quotes will fit a little bit better for your reindeer crew.

'Tis the season to be all things jolly, so put on a Santa hat, pour some eggnog for your besties, blast the Christmas tunes, and jingle all the way to your Christmas tree. This annual celebration only happens once a year, so it’s time to go all out and make it a time to remember. Happy gift unwrapping.
