What Can I Use for Gift Tags?

There are lots of different ways to make gift tags for the holidays and beyond.

Of course you can always head to the store and purchase a Hallmark card, but I it’s much more budget-friendly, especially when you are tagging Christmas gifts, to keep costs down.

Here are a few ideas of things that can be used for gift tags.

  • Extra Wrapping Paper
  • Brown or White Paper Bags
  • Cardstock
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Magazine or Newspaper Clippings
  • Boxes, Cardboard or other Packaging
  • Printables
  • Apps Like Canva

To keep gift wrapping and tagging costs down, I like to keep a roll of brown craft paper, different size ribbons, and cardstock around for just this purpose.

  1. This is such a beautiful idea! I’m excited to share this post with my followers on my From My Neck of the Woods weekend round up.

  2. Love this idea! Do you know how long the pine or boxwood would last before looking dead? In other words, how far in advance can these be made and still look good? Thank you
