Let’s face it. Christmas gift tags are just as practical as they are cute. Before my family incorporated them into our holiday season traditions, it seemed like every year at least one gift got wrapped and placed under the tree without proper labeling. Then, someone had to awkwardly pull back the wrapping paper just a smidge to try to figure out who it was for.
Maybe you’ve had a different experience with present tags. Maybe you have parents who were adamant about using gift tags and they usually had to buy their Christmas gift tags from a store. Some were cool, but most were not. The selection was limited to whatever was sold in the local store. Or if they didn’t like those, they made their own.
Nowadays, there are gobs, literally hundreds of cute, clever, or interesting Christmas gift tags available for free online. Whether you choose cute Christmas tags or funny gift tags, your gift receiver is going to love that extra special touch. And let’s not forget that you get to avoid removing the gift wrapping prematurely because you forgot to label your gift.
If you are someone who meticulously folds wrapping paper so that you get a beautifully wrapped gift every time, these printable holiday tags will take your wrapping to the next level. That’s right…and your friends and relatives said it couldn’t be done.
If you are less concerned about nicely wrapping your gifts, then these tags are for you too! With very little time and no extra cost, you can add a personal touch to every present.
Below, you will find some of my favorite present tags from many talented bloggers and graphic designers.

I’m often asked for advice on the best kind of card stock for printables. Any white cardstock over 80lbs will do but I must say that I LOVE this Mohawk brand of papers and cardstock. Their bright white and smooth quality make the colors really pop. They are beautiful. I mostly use the 80lb cardstock but sometimes I’ll switch to 100lb if I want something a little sturdier. Other than cardstock, all you need for an adorable gift tag is some pretty ribbon (or you can use string) and a hole punch to make sure your Christmas presents get to the right people and bring an extra smile to their faces.
