I realize I’m probably too late for many of you. But, if you’re still wrapping gifts like I am, then some gift tags may come in handy! Today, I’m sharing a download for these FREE Christmas Printable Gift Tags.
Unlike a lot of folks, I love wrapping Christmas presents. Whether I’m deciding on a color scheme, buying ribbons to match, finding cute gift tags, or finally wrapping while binge-watching Harry Potter movies, gift-wrapping is one of my favorite activities of the season.
Most years, I make my own gift tags. This might mean embellishing a store-bought label, creating something from scratch, or designing printable gift tags I can cut out, I think a personalized tag is the perfect finishing touch to a gift. Here’s what I came up with this year.
The design for these tags came about after seeing similar ones online. Yes, the general idea behind these tags has been done before. (I can’t take credit.) However, I couldn’t resist giving them an IBC twist!
What I especially love about the tags is that you can have fun with personalization. Obviously, there’s space to write the names of the recipient and giver. You can also check whether the recipient has been “naughty” or “nice”. And just for fun, you can circle the delivery method: sleigh, mitten, or mail.
I’ve provided the labels (which you can download here) in two color schemes: red and blue.
Because my wrapping paper theme this year is blue, teal, gray, and aqua, I needed the blue labels. However, I realize that many people keep things traditional, so there’s a red option as well.
The download (which you can find here) will provide you with one sheet of blue and one sheet of red. Feel free to print whatever you like. For best results, I suggest printing them on cardstock. (It’s thicker.)
To cut them out, I recommend using a paper cutter like this one. It’s fast, and it will keep the edges straight. However, scissors will work, too. (I had to cut mine out with scissors since my paper cutter is back in St. Marys.)
To attach the tag to a gift, I prefer bakers twine. It’s available in many colors and styles. I’m partial to the varieties that incorporate gold or silver metallic thread. I like the extra sparkle.
I usually add a fabric ribbon to my gift, so it’s simple to tie the tag to the package. However, if ribbon isn’t your thing, the tags can be attached to your package with washi tape.
Voila! Whether the recipients are naughty or nice, your presents are ready for gifting. Again, if you like these Christmas Printable Gift Tags, click here for the free download.
