It’s nearing the time when all the shopping is done and you need to wrap all the Christmas gifts up. This week I have put together a free PDF printable of some awesome gift tags to help you make the job a bit easier. Simply download the PDF and print on the thickest paper you can, trim the tags out and hole punch. Thread a ribbon or string through the hole and you’re done. Simple as that.
The design of the tags is based on my voucher design, I’ve just modified it slightly and added some humorous gift-related sayings. If you use the tags I would love to see a picture, email me at email@example.com and I might even feature it on my blog!

To help you (and me!) get organised this Christmas I’ve put together a free Christmas gift planner printable. Perfect for sorting out who is getting what and from where. Help yourself to the free PDF download and print out to your hearts content! Simply click on the link: Christmas gift planner to download your copy. Pin it up, or file it away if you need to keep things secret, and tick the gifts off as you go.
The idea is to give vouchers to your loved ones with promises of fun activities you will do together, making for a pretty cost-effective yet meaningful gift. New for this month are sets for your grandma and grandpa which make a great gift idea for grandparents day (on 7 October in the UK and September 9 in the US), as well as vouchers for your brother or sister.
The cards have a bright, vintage feel to them, are printed in thick paper and come in sets of three wrapped with ribbon. They’re printed using a local company to me, who also happen to be one of the most green printers in the world. They are waste-free, carbon-neutral and have five – yes five- wormeries. (I’ll write more about them soon).
