Printable Gift Tags for the Holidays

Thank you Thirty One for today’s blog post…

There’s nothing better than wrapping that last gift and placing it under the tree (except maybe unwrapping a few with your name on them!). Add the finishing touch to your holiday wrapping with these free gift tags inspired by the personalization and prints in our 2018 Winter Guide. They’re the perfect way to add the finishing touch to an already thoughtful gift.

What you’ll need:

  • Printer
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon, twine, yarn or string
  • Double-sided tape
  • Pen or marker

Print out the sheets of gift tags and use scissors to cut out as many as you need. Use a pen or marker to write on the tag who the gift is from and who it’s for. If attaching to a gift bag, punch a hole in the top corner of your tag. Cut a piece of ribbon, twine, yarn or string and thread it through the hole. Tie the tag to the handle of your gift bag. If attaching your tag to a box or other wrapped gift, use double-sided tape to attach it to the front of the gift.

Wrapping paper, gift tags and ribbon can get expensive, but these free printable tags are oh-so-cute and festive (without breaking the bank). With so many prints and characters to choose from, from Family Holiday to Snow Monster, you’ll be able to pick the perfect tag to go with the perfect gift.

Bonus tip: Heading to any holiday parties this season? Tie them around wine glass stems to identify their owners! Or make these tags pull double duty by using them to label bags of goodies: Put together a bag of cookies, brownies or other holiday treats with a special thank you written on the tag for a teacher, your yoga instructor or the mail carrier.
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

The Night Before Christmas

It is Christmas Eve day….. the hustle and bustle is reaching immeasurable heights as last minute shoppers make the final dash to the malls for the perfect gift.  Some are nursing hangovers from the holiday office parties.  Others are home preparing for family and friends to arrive – dinner cooking (is it fish? or turkey? or ham?).  Kids are eagerly counting down until Santa will arrive bringing gifts for one and all.  While still others are grabbing a quick dinner as they head to church to celebrate the real reason for the season…

Tonight will be dinner with my step-mom and half sister.  A chance to share special memories of holidays with dad. Christmas Day will be spent with mom and Sal, dinner out embracing the special moments.  Just another indication the times are changing.

As I sit looking at our Christmas tree, memories of Christmas Eve’s past flash before me.

The years of trying to get Belinda to go to bed so Edythe, Elsie and I could put presents under the tree. It was really hard carrying things past HER room to get the living room. It always made for a lot of laughs. Waiting patiently for mom to get off work so we could open presents. The early morning calls to wake everyone up. The funny thing was – Belinda wasn’t a morning person so we always had to WAKE her up. Really, on Christmas morning???? Opening presents was a process which took forever because Belinda wanted to play with each thing before moving on to the next gift. We learned games were opened last or at least towards the end or else nothing else would get opened. Great memories of days gone by…

Cherish the moments with family.  Let the struggles of the year go for you never know what tomorrow will bring or if we will even be here tomorrow. There are tears of joy, tears of sorrow for those who are no longer with us and tears of anticipation for what God has in store for our family over the next year.

Merry Christmas to my friends, family, Thirty One customers and hostess and all of my blog fans. You have blessed this year for me in so many ways…
