As soon as December begins, you can ask villagers what it is they want for Toy Day! Write it down somewhere for reference later.

Get Your Santa Gear Ready

Santa Clothing

▲A Santa Jacket, available for 420 bells.

Santa clothing will go on sale in shops, so you'll want to buy it. All pieces will appear before the 24th, so you won't have to worry about missing one.

Talk To Jingles On The Day Of

Talking to Jingles while wearing Santa gear

▲"The shoes are a bit off but, eh, people probably won't notice."

On Toy Day, wear your Santa gear and go talk to Jingle. He'll then give you a bag of presents to give out to all your villagers.

Give Villagers What They Want

Villager presents

▲"A French doll! This is exactly what I wanted!!!"

Make sure to give each villager the exact present they said they wanted. There's no need to prepare presents yourself - they'll all be in the bag Jingle gave you. Just make sure you give each villager the right thing!

Hand Everything Out To Get A Present

Jingle presents

▲"Since you worked so hard, Santa left behind this special Christmas Wreath as a present for you!"

Once you've handed out all of the presents in the bag, you will get a Toy Day Wreath as a reward.

Get A Photo Reward

If you give your villagers presents without making any mistakes, you'll get a picture of Jingle the following day in the mail as a reward!

Christmas Themed Items?

Christmas Closet

↑ A seasonally limited item (closet) being sold in the store

In New Leaf, Christmas items were obtainable, though not from Jingle. Rather, you purchased them from the store during a limited term. Christmas items haven't been confirmed - although the "Festive" set does exist, it's possible that we'll get even more items introduced later on. The set name will likely be "Toy Day".
