I love the holidays for so many reasons. Of course, quality time with some of my favourite people are at the top of my list but also – searching for that perfect present for someone and wrapping it up brings me so much joy! Ever since I was a child (pre-Pinterest days), I would watch my Mom wrap her gifts in typical Martha Stewart fashion and I would try and copy every little detail while adding my own special touch to it.Read More
I'm a sucker for pretty paper. I also have a penchant for beautiful but simple gift wrapping. Growing up (waaaaaay before Pinterest was ever created), I watched my Mom carefully and thoughtfully wrap each present with ornaments, beautiful ribbons and fresh eucalyptus. It's no wonder this tradition grew on me— I inherited my Mom's love for pretty packaging at a very young age. I remember my presents in high school were wrapped perfectly. Not to brag but my wrapping game was strong even back in my teenage years :)
On the off chance that I'm not working (which is pretty rare, these days but who's complaining?!). I design little things that I love. Including these little tags for all my gifts this year. They're minimal, black and white and go with all my wrapping paper. And guess what? It's a free printable! So if you like it, head over to the download link at the very bottom.There are 4 different designs, all created by moi.
My favourite thing to do while wrapping gifts is to play some xmas tunes and drink some hot chocolate! Do you have any traditions?
Happy wrapping and enjoy!

One of my favourite Christmas memories as a little girl was wrapping presents. Our living room would be filled with gift wrap, boxes and little embellishments to make your presents extra special. My Mom collected little ornaments and floral pieces to use as gift toppers and let me tell ya, this has really rubbed off on me.
And since my goal this Christmas is to make most of my presents, I thought why not create some homemade tags to go with them! I scored an amazing stack of card stock at the Dollar Store for $2 and went to town. I've created 2 versions and 2 sizes. The first size (2.5") fits into most mason jar covers. Just cut them out, pop them in and you're done!
Special thanks to my friend Monda who gave me this delicious jar of homemade apple butter to use in my photo. I had to use some trickery for this photograph because that jar is pretty much done. Homemade presents are the best aren't they?
I've also created smaller tags (1.5" round) which can be used for other homemade gifts.
