I love that little extra touch that DIY gift tags add to a simple gift. It’s a bit of a personal addition that shows attention to detail. But, they don’t need to add a big expense. These simple DIY gift tags and gift tag printables are perfect for the holiday season, with ideas that work for any time of year!
This year, add that personal touch to your gifts. I try to bring you ideas that can be adapted for year round, and most of these will work. Some are generic, and some are presented with a holiday theme. Click on the title or image to read the tutorial.

There are so many printable options available, which cost only what ink and paper cost you!
Another reason that gift tags are the perfect thing to DIY is because of how cheap the supplies are. Make up your own ideas, or follow along with those listed below. You can either start with blank tags – available in linen, card stock, wood, Kraft paper, plus fun shapes and colors. Or begin with card stock, scrapbook, or Kraft paper – and cut out or punch your own using a gift tag hole punch.
I hope you enjoy these and gain some inspiration! Click through for tutorials, printables, and tips!
