Christmas Gift Tag Ideas

Christmas Tree Gift TagWhen I was a child, my mother would make special Christmas present name tags for me and my sisters. Using Christmas cards, we had received she would cut them out and decorate them using yarn, ribbon, lace, etc. Using a big needle, she would sew around the edges of each one, put a string on it and they were done!


Each year when we would unwrap the presents, we would give her the name tags and they would be used again the next year, sometimes needing yarn replacement as us kids were so excited to get into our presents. It was great because we came to just know automatically which ones were ours because some of the tags never changed, she still uses the one from my first Christmas to this day when I go to her house for the holidays.

It was a great and cheap way to label our gifts and it's something I will always remember as a special part of our families traditions. I have even started doing this with my daughter.

I like making my own gift tags because it gives me more room to write what I really want to say on the tag. Those little sticky ones you buy barely have room for the name!


So this is what I do and it is very inexpensive. I did a lot of these and packaged them in sets of 25 for the fall fair I will be doing.
