These gift tag templates come as a simple .jpg or .png which you can print yourself at home. The basic outline tags allow you to design and color them, or print them off and let the kids have fun designing their own gift tags. Some are pre-designed, so you simply download, print and cut out to use. Don’t forget to punch holes and attach pretty colored strings to tie them on, or use two-sided tape to stick them on your packages.
Let kids embellish the ready-to-print (pre-coloured) gift tags with glitter (or the less messy glitter glue sticks or glitter crayons and markers), or pre-gummed stickers to give them their own unique touch. In craft shops and dollar stores you can usually buy spools of gold and silver (fine) cord to use for the hang tags, or use thin strands of foil curling ribbons instead. Even Christmas coloured yarn (which is probably easier for kids to handle) works for home-made gift tags.
For the “extreme saver” bunch, make special tags for the tots from Santa, and use the same one every year. Here’s how. Print off your choice of tags on standard white card stock (available by the container at Walmart, and often at office supply stores by the sheet) and fill in the “To” and “From” with marker. Laminate the gift tags, either with a home craft laminator, or by taking a sheet to any shop that offers laminating (like Staples for example, or the UPS Store). Cut out the tags, put on a sturdy hanging ribbon and these tags can be used every year (at least until your little one is too old for the Santa gig) as the tags on the special gifts that Santa leaves under the tree.
For generic re-usable tags, you can do the same without filling in the “To and From” slots. Laminate them as blanks, and fill in the names with white-board markers. Wipe them off and store them til next year.
Even more ideas for these printable tags: before you print, make sure the “hole” space and the “to and from” on the tags are painted over in your paint program. Print the designs on 8 X 10 magnetized sheets (Avery is one of the companies that makes these sheets, and they can usually be found at Walmart). Once printed on the magnet sheets, kids can colour their own fridge magnets.
Check back every now and then for more tag designs and shapes.

Also note – more Christmas tags towards the bottom of the page.
Ready to print Christmas gift tags also have a companion sheet (below) that kids can colour themselves instead. These ready-to-print tags can be embellished with glitter, coloured glue sticks, or stickers if you want a simple craft for kids at Christmas.
These cute tags are shaped like their designs, but where the designs form a delicate area (like the reindeer) that would tear easily, they have an underlying shape to make cutting easier. They are left black and white so you can colour them using your own paint program, or let your little ones choose the colours and fill them in using crayons or markers. With 6 tags on an 8.5″ X 11″ sheet, they are large enough for the kids to handle.
These Christmas gift tags have designs taken from my own photos (except the bells, which are from a photoshop brush I’ll be releasing soon). The Elves are vintage, but they are quite similar in appearance to the recent “Elf on the Shelf”. The little train is a resin piece and of course, everyone recognizes the M & M girl! These are “ready to print” so you can write your own text, but you can also add “To and From” in your editing program if you really want to (before printing).
