The season of giving is almost here and most of us love giving gifts just as much as getting them! There is something so special about picking out just the right item for someone you love, wrapping it in a pretty gift paper and attaching a personalized gift tag. Seeing the expression on their face when they open it is absolutely priceless. Here are 13 DIY gift tags you can create and make part of the experience!
1. Christmas Ornament Gift Tags
When you wrap up your Christmas presents, these gift tags shouldn’t be missing from the packages! They carry the motive of Christmas ornaments, emphasizing the festive time even more. You can find the tutorial for them at Please Note!
2. Paint-Chip Gift Tags
You don’t have to go on a full shopping spree just to create a few simple gift tags. Sometimes the best materials are the ones you already have at home! Sift through some old boxes to see if you can find any paint-chips and check out how Samelia’s Mum turned them into gift tags!

5. Washi Tape Gift Tag
If you have washi tape at hand, the world is your oyster! Instead of buying a whole box of gift tags that all look the same, you can use washi tape to create personalized gift tags that will be just as special as the gift itself. We love these colorful ones by The Thinking Closet!
6. Pocket Gift Tags
If you don’t want your gift tag to be read by everyone, hide it in a little pocket that is going to keep the contents private until the person who is meant to get the gift pulls the tag out. This is a simple way to give your gift tag an extra element and you can get the instructions at Eat Drink Chic.
