    Which one would a native use:

    Did you give me rent for December?

    VS

    Did you give me the December rent?

    Are both okay?

    Yours are acceptable but I find "Did you give me December's rent?" and "Did you give me the rent for December?" more natural.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Say either 'Did you give me the rent for December?'

    or

    'Did you give me the December rent?'

    But I'd have to be a pretty dozy landlord not to know whether you'd paid your rent or not.
