Update 12/13/2013: Thanks to my friend Renee Handy, you can now download a version of these gift tags that can be modified without Adobe Acrobat Pro or Adobe Illustrator. This new template includes editable form tags you can fill out using Acrobat Reader. (Information on formatting these fields is provided below.)
If, like me, you’re looking for excuses to duck holiday responsibilities – baking cookies, sending out Christmas cards, staging unnecessarily elaborate tableaus for your home’s over-priced Elf on a Shelf – making reusable gift tags can be a nice filler project for the days leading up to Christmas.
Benefits of this project include:
- Never forget to buy gift tags again, necessitating that you write names on your carefully wrapped-and-ribboned packages with a Sharpie (no judgments)
- Legible gift tags, even on the presents your husband wrapped
- Reusable and eco-friendly (although you’re probably going to be attaching them to a surfeit of wrapping paper)
