Stylish Gift Giving with Free Gift Tag Printable

Holiday Gift Wrapping Doesn't Have to Be So Literal

Over the years I have used a multitude of 'untraditional' wrapping which have included: plain white paper, newspaper, paper bags, plastic bags, dishtowels, cloth napkins, paper that I've embellished, raffia, jute, re-purposed ribbon, pine cones, holly - the list goes on.

I guess my take on gift wrapping for the holidays or other occasions is, as long as the wrapping makes the recipient feel like they're getting something special, then no other rules apply.

There are always embellishments that can be added to make gifts holiday specific.

You could certainly add one bold pop of red, or subtle silver and gold, to tie in the holiday theme.

Then again, you have the choice to introduce a new color you haven't used before into your holiday gift wrapping. One year I used lots of purple and it was gorgeous.

In the spirit of making the holidays unique and special, here are some gift tags you can print and use.

Embellish how you see fit. I think they'd look extra special against white paper with a sprig of evergreen, a pine cone, or some silver ribbon.

Start your own tradition and wrap things up with the unexpected. Whatever you choose, have fun with it. Don't get bogged down by the usual choices. Make up your own. Just make it special.

There will be more free tags by the end of the week, and they'll have a little more traditional holiday feel.

Am I the only one that has thrown gift wrapping rules out the window? What are you favorite items to wrap with for the holidays?

A heads up, there is still time to enter our current giveaway and tomorrow is the start of our next Gotta Have It Shop Link up party for those of you who have online shops. For those of you who don't, it's a great place to find neat gifts all in one place.

Have one terrific Tuesday.  I'll do the same.  Thanks for being here.

Ciao for now
