Every year, we are so indebted to the amazing graphic designers and bloggers who give us the gift of free printable holiday gift tags and wrapping paper. It’s like they keep getting better every year. While you can always return to our archives, that feature so many fantastic holiday printables of all kinds, we love searching for new ones too.
So stock up on your printer ink and some nice quality paper or printable labels, and you’ll have all the gift tags you could possibly need this Christmas and Hanukkah.
Give your gifts modern, sophisticated style with a huge selection of printable Black and Gold holiday gift tags from Creative Index Blog (at top). I’m planning to use these for my sister and my girlfriends, who will appreciate a break from everything Santa about now.
These modern, whimsical Red-and-White Woodland printable gift wrap designs would look so great under the tree or in any festive setting. The floral pattern is free–although the other coordinating wraps are available as a download at Muffin Grayson’s Etsy shop for $5. If you’re wrapping small gifts, it can be a nice way to go instead of buying big rolls of gift wrap.
Use a simple, solid gift wrap and let these Quirky printable holiday gift tags from the amazing Helen Dardik be the star of your gift wrapping this year. Her printable tags have been favorites of ours for a while.
And psst, she has a great printable Hanukkah gift tag in her collection too, along with mittens, messages of cheer, and other non-denominational designs. Those tend to be harder to track down this time of year.
Caravan Shoppe is one of my favorite resources for great printables, but many of their downloads will cost a small fee for the privilege. Totally worth it, I think, but still, that’s why this printable Merry Christmas wrapping paper is such a treat–it’s free!
These simple free blue and white printable watercolored gift tags by Sanae Ishida will dress up your Hanukkah gifts so elegantly. Or your New Year’s hostess gifts or your Mother’s Day gifts, for that matter. I think the water color designs are pretty enough to frame.
Sometimes I feel that the rustic chalkboard trend has run its course, but then I see something like these free printable chalkboard gift tags from Lia Griffiths and I change my mind. They actually feel very classic, and I bet they’d look great with both modern and traditional gift wrap. Can’t choose? There’s a coordinating free wrapping paper printable here too.
My grandmother used to write (spoiler alert) “From: Santa” on our gifts but how cool would it be for a kid to get a gift with an S. Claus & Co. logo on the tag? This collection of free printable holiday gift tags by Catherine Davis at Design Editor are stylish enough to use for a co-worker but playful enough to go on my kid’s special gift. I love the simplicity and black accents–instead of green–really makes them sophisticated.
These charming free printable Spanish-language gift tags by Haciendo el Indio remind me of some of my favorite children’s book illustrations. I love the non-traditional color scheme too. And how cute is that Santa!
The artist also has created black-and-white tags your kids can color in themselves, for any color scheme you want. I know mine would have the best time doing these. (via Bloesem Kids)
There’s a snowy, ethereal indie illustration feel to the free printable woodland holiday gift tags by Kelli Murray. I adore for them for bringing to mind wintry Christmases, even if you’re in the deep south like me. Just looking at them makes me want a mug of hot spiced tea.
This printable Christmas Ornament gift tag set from Martha Stewart makes the simple gift wrap underneath look great. Or print these out to place of the front of small square envelopes filled with cash or gift card for a great pop.
While I think all of the 12 Days of Christmas calligraphied gift tags by Lindsey Bee are pretty amazing, I have to say have a special place in my heart for Buddy the Elf’s “Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins” quote. But check out the whole page–the humor in some of the movie quotes balanced with the fancy calligraphy makes them so fun. (PS, love the transit map as gift wrap!)
If your kid is into arctic wildlife like ours are, Lia Griffith’s free printable polar Christmas gift tags are convenient for those of us using computers to make our gift-wrapping easier. You can edit the PDF file and type in givers’ and recipients’ names before you print. Or hey, just go the old-fashioned way and use your handwriting.
If you’re willing to get crafty and do a little more work than just printing, these hinged reindeer printable gift tags at Eat Drink Chic have a vintage vibe I really like. Print out the components and get your kids to help you assemble the deer. Maybe while you watch a Christmas movie together.
One more idea: I may even crop some of these images and print them on tattoo paper to make fun stocking stuffers for my kids. If only I could download tape from the Internet too, I’d be all set.
