I'll admit that in my premommy days, I actually enjoyed shopping for wrapping paper and creating lovely little packages more than actually shopping for gifts. But these days, with time at a premium and a seemingly never-ending holiday to-do list, I just want my gifts wrapped and done, any paper will do. So while I'll be stocking up on simple, inexpensive (and stylish, right?) kraft paper, I'll be jazzing up my gifts with adorable — and free! — printable tags that are chic on the cheap. If you're in the same boat as me, keep clicking to check out a dozen of the cutest free gift tags of the season!
Wee ones love helping to wrap presents, but if their small hands make maneuvering the big packages more of a hassle, set the kids up with a quick art project that will hold their interest. Made from the cotton makeup cloths you have in the cabinet, these frosty lil snowmen gift tags double as ornaments for the recipient's tree.

If you've run out of holiday gift tags and can't imagine running one more errand, grab all those Christmas cards you've received off the mantel and put them to good use. Ask your kids to clip the fanciful card fronts (because they don't have writing on them) down to tag size with a pair of safe scissors. The quality card stock, seasonal screen images and foil designs will be nice complements to your gift wrap.
