DIY Gift Tags

December 19, 2017

It’s less than a week before Christmas and let’s face it, you’re not done with your holiday shopping. The holidays seem to fly by each year, don’t they? I’m getting a bit stressed that I’m not completely done with my shopping yet.

As hard as finding the perfect gift may be, I do love gift wrapping. Don’t laugh—I’m being serious! I’m the designated gift wrapper in my family and it’s one of my favorite Christmas activities to do every year. This season, I decided to add a more personal touch to my usual gift wrapping routine with some fun DIY gift tags.

Sure, you can easily buy your gift tags to save you some extra time, but what is the fun in that? Besides, I wanted to make big enough gift tags to include a personal season’s greetings. Everyone loves personal notes. At least I do when receiving gifts.

The best part of this DIY project is that you can make each gift tag your own. So, hit your local dollar store or craft depot to find cheap holiday stickers, washi tape, stamps and any other materials that contain lots of holiday flair. Your family and friends are going to love them!


  • White/brown paper (or pre-cut gift tags)
  • Stickers, washi tape, etc.
  • String


Cut out tags to the size you desire. Add stickers, washi tape, stamps or any other materials to decorate each gift tag. When done, write down personal messages and attach the string.

How do you like to make your gifts more personable during the holiday season? Share your ideas in the comments below!
