free printable holiday gift tags

    My sister and her sister-in-law have a little holiday motto:

    wrapped and done by december one

    The amazing part about it is that they actually adhere to it!

    {me, not so much}


    Perhaps, like my sister, you have found {or made} the perfect gifts and you are at the wrapping stage.  Or maybe you are more like me and you haven’t even written a gift list yet. Either way, when you do get to the wrapping part, you’ll need some cute gift tags, right?


    Because I love a creatively wrapped package, I’ve created a collection of gift tags to adorn presents this Christmas.


    And because I think you are the greatest reader-friends ever, I’d like to give the collection to you as an early {mini} Christmas gift.


    Simply download the pdf, print on cardstock, trim, punch a hole and tie onto your loved ones’ gifts.

     You can download the tags in THE ARCHIVE along with all of our best free prints, templates and fonts.  If you are not an Archive member, simply add your email to the list and you’re in!

    3. Thank you so much for the “wrapped and done by December 1” motto! I used it this year too and my family and friends really got into it. It was the first year I’ve ever been so organized and it was so awesome – no wrapping until the wee hours Christmas Eve – no rushing to the post office 4 days before Christmas hoping there’s a way to get packages delivered before Christmas. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

    4. I never got a chance to say thank you for sharing these! I used them for my wedding on New Years Eve for DIY mini champagne favors. I just did a blog post about them and was brought back to your wonderful blog I had tagged months ago for them! Thanks again!

    5. Thank you for sharing. I just printed them off and punched my holes. I am going to use rustic twine and brown parcel paper. Can’t wait to start wrapping !!!

    6. Thank you so much for the gift tags!! I’m ashamed to admit, I’ve been writing the TO and FROM on the gifts with a Sharpee!!!! Now the rest of my gifts will look fabulous!!! Thanks again.

    7. Thank you so much! I just printed up a set and attached jute rope twine to each, wrapped up in a bow, and it’s a little gift for a girlfriend. Question about the wrapping paper (I know you recently did a post about this and I love the scrapbook paper idea!)-but where did you get the brown and white damask paper and the white and black toile papers shown here? I am tired of my cheesy Christmas wrapping paper and am on the hunt for pretty paper this week!

    8. Thanks for sharing! These are just darling!! Have you ever made a font out of your handwriting? Cuz I would LOVE to get a font of your handwriting! Mine is not so very pretty. ;)

    9. I finally purchased my card stock and printed out today – LOVE! Thank you so much for sharing these. IT makes me want to go wrap a bunch of packages just to be able to fasten the ribbon and pretty tag.

    10. Thank you SOOO much for the tags!!! I am so very glad I stumbled upon them!! Am using them with my giftwrap this year!! ~Jessica

    15. These are absolutely fabulous!!!! Thank you SO much for such a beautifully designed and generously offered gift! They will be wonderful on our packages this year (I’ve already started using them!)! Thanks again so much!



    16. THANK YOU! I love these tags and have been anticipating the tags since the “sneak peek” with the December giveaway. My Christmas theme is black, white, and red, so the tags are perfection! I have already started to use them!

    17. Yay! You brought Christmas early! I absolutely love them! I was looking at the pictures and reading your posts about the tags and the whole time I’m thinking, “how am I going to find a download like this” or “where can I find this cute paper?”…turns out, I don’t have to! You are awesome! Merry Christmas!! P.s. Were you at the Top Foods in Lakeland a couple days ago?

    18. Love the tags too! I have already printed them off on some manila shipping tags I had that happen to be just the right size for your pattern:) I am aready thinking about great ribbons and pens Ican use to take them over the top! I will be thinking of your sister and sister-in=law as I am enjoying wrapping things up…..a bit later in the month…..good thing I was not quite as organized, now I have some fabulous tags:) thanks again, Merry Christmas!

    19. Um yeah…. you pretty much ROCK! These are gorgeous, and I can’t wait to use them :D It may even inspire me to get my shopping done so I can wrap them up!

    20. Thanks for the shout out. These are awesome and look so cute on all the gifts under our tree. Thanks for sharing them with me a little early so we could use them at our “wrapped and done by december one party”. Huge hit! Love you.

    21. As soon as I saw the picture of the gift tags in this entry, I thought, ‘I am so buying those, whatever she’s charging!’ and then you gave them to us for free!:) Thank you so much, this gave me a huge motivator to get going on my shopping so I can add these adorable tags to the presents!

    22. Bless you…exactly what I was wanting to go with the paper and twine I purchased today! I can’t wait to get wrapping. Now just to finish the 20 remaining handmade gifts I am boldly attempting this year.

    23. I second trying to find such beautiful paper!!! Where on earth did you find it? Its amazing! And thanks for sharing the gift tags they are wonderful!!!!

    24. Wow, and I thought I was money this year because I had our holiday decor up before Thanksgiving. Your peeps are killing me with their gift organization! Can you loan them out for next year? I can’t even imagine how relaxing it would be to plan ahead for the gift giving. :)

    25. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing these lovely tags with us. I just wrote down gift tags on my list of things to buy at the store. I can now erase that one. These gift tags are so much better than any thing I would have bought. Thanks for being so sweet!

    26. I love these tags!! I can’t wait to print and wrap this weekend. Do you use a special program to make these? I would love to make some fun things like this for my classroom!

    27. YAY!!! I am so excited about these tags :) this is the total inspiration I needed to get going on christmas gifts! Thank you so much!
      Your style is so lovely, such a gift. Merry Christmas blessings to you.

    28. Well, shut the front door! It was like you were READING MY MIND! I was just thinking yesterday how I wanted some really cute gift tags and didn’t find any I liked at the store and then…POOF! Emily solves my problem! Thank you SO much – these are SO fabulous!

    29. Thank you so much! These are GREAT! I’d also love to know about places to get great wrapping paper. I can never find paper I like.

    30. Oh, Emily, I love wrapping a pretty package…you’ve outdone yourself. I was considering having a little party with some girlfriends…a get it wrapped party. Won’t these just make each package something special. A million thanks from St Simons Island, Georgia!

    31. Thank you so much for the gift! It’s the perfect finishing touch for the presents that I am just starting to wrap! Luck to you in your wrapping and shopping!

    32. I already left one post saying many, many thanks! But, I just printed them out and they are so so precious! Love them Emily….you are so giving! Where can you purchase paper and ribbons like you have on your packages showing the tags?

    33. emily i have a feeling we are going to become very good friends!!!
      first psalty.
      second your amazing home.
      and third..your design esthetic is impeccable and i love all your stationary and free gift tags. almost tempted to fly to seattle and hug you in person!!!

      ps. your paint color post inspired me to take the plunge and repaint my kitchen (went from robins egg to soft creamy beige) BM Abbington Putty to be exact.

      thanks for all you do!!

    34. These are FANTASTIC! Thank you SO much. They will make for an excellent gift for our preschooler’s teacher! Simply add some cute ribbon and voila! MUCH appreciated!

    35. Thank you so much for these – I really need them! I am so behind! What a great idea have everything done by December 1st – maybe next year… Oh I saw a parcel with my name on – is it really for me!!!

    36. Thanks so much, Emily! The tags are beautiful and a good reminder to get started on buying/making gifts!!! Have a blessed Christmas season.

    37. I will be the 101st person but PLEASE do share about your paper. I’m obsessing over that silver glittered one and havent found anything at the big box stores that’s even remotely “pretty!” I love the tags! Thanks so much!

      1. You all are so sweet.

        The wrapping paper shown is partially scrapbook paper {on the small boxes}, partially paper-source {glitter & chartreus} and the toile is from a local packaging store called Packaging Specialties – my dream-come-true store. I found a huge roll of silver paper at costco this year. I will try to put together a source page for materials I like {ribbons, papers, tools, supplies} as a resource.

    38. very fabulous indeed! I will be using them to pretty up my packages. your wrapping paper is gorgeous, do you have a favorite source? Sorry if I’m the 100th person to ask this.

    39. Thanks so much for these lovely gift tags! I am obsessed with pretty wrapped christmas packages and I am really excited to put these beauties to use! :)

    40. Wow , thank you so much….very sweet of you! I wish I was wrapped and done by Dec. 1…..It’s more like how late will I be up on Christmas Eve??? Your gift will inspire me to get busy wrapping.

    41. Thank you so much- You amaze me with your talent. I copied your painted wallpaper and LOVE it. Those are just beautiful. I better get wrapping so I can use them :)

    42. Thank you so much for these lovely tags. I have already printed the entire set & plan to break out my wrapping paper today. If only my wrapped packages could look as beautiful as yours; but now I’m heading in the right direction!

    43. These are gorgeous! Thank you so much for giving us the downloads. I am going to print them out and use them this season, thanks again Emily!

    44. You are absolutely awesome! Thank you so much for offering this free download! Just yesterday the tags I wanted on etsy were sold out, so I wasn’t yet sure of my backup plan. These tags are oh-so-perfect! Thanks again!

    45. Emily,

      Thanks!! That is soo sweet of you!! You have inspired me to wrap beautiful gifts!! I love your paper and ribbon. Where do you buy your paper and ribbon?

    46. THANK YOU! For some reason I’m not in the Christmas spirit this year, but I’m still excited about wrapping my presents (which I have not purchased…or really even thought about!). I love wrapping presents and making them special and beautiful!

    47. These look great. Thank you so much for making them available. I was able to download the festive tags but none of the others. Hmmm… can you help?
