The Twelve Days of Christmas

Level pending

"On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: 12 Drummers Drumming, 11 Pipers Piping, 10 Lords-a-Leaping, 9 Ladies Dancing, 8 Maids-a-Milking, 7 Swans-a-Swimming, 6 Geese-a-Laying, 5 Gold Rings, 4 Colly Birds, 3 French Hens, 2 Turtle Doves, And a Partridge in a Pear Tree."

In the popular Christmas carol "The Twelve Days of Christmas", how many gifts were given in total?

(Assuming that all the gifts were given cumulatively, i.e. all the gifts are given on each new day, e.g. on the first day 1 partridge was given, and on the second day 1 partridge and 2 turtle doves were given.)
