“Yeah, sure,” you tell me. “Haven’t you looked at the calendar lately? Christmas is 12 months away!”

Yes, I know that. But today is January 6th, Epiphany, officially the last day of the Christmas season, the day when all of my holiday decorations will be taken down. We’re experiencing a polar vortex according to national news services (or -11 degrees, with a wind chill factor of -36 degrees), and somehow it seems appropriate to close this season with some holiday gift tags that can be used next Christmas. Besides, a few weeks before Christmas 2014, I will be doing jumping jacks because I had the foresight to get all of my tags made early!

In that spirit, I combed the Web for 12 appealing gift tags that you can download and print. Some of the designs were released in 2013 and others are older ones, but all of them are great accents for your holiday packages. The small round ones, of course, can also be used as cupcake toppers. You can even decorate a tree, window or mirror with them, make a fluttery mobile, or hang a paper garland made of gift tags on your tree or over a mantle.

    Such a great idea – right now we are up to 2 degrees – so a perfect day to stay in and as I too am taking down my Christmas decorations – I can start thinking of ideas for next year. Love all the imaginative tags!!

    Great options! I’ll have to pin a few of these for later this year. And you know, it’s really never too early to start thinking about the holidays. I try to start my shopping in October every year, but I might start planning out my handmade gifts even sooner now. This year was kind of a rush.

  5. What great printables!! Definitely a great option for the next holiday season. Thank you!

    I don’t understand cupcake toppers! You don’t eat them or anything…. They go on top of the icing, or below? I’m serious – I’m not a cupcake eater. I like to use old/dated Holiday cards, and a circle punch. Cards are always so nice – why not recycle! {:-D
