Attaching a special gift tag to presents adds a personal touch to the gift. If you enjoy paper crafting or simply want a fun adornment for your gifts, these designs are sure to please.

All of these gift tag templates are free to download and print. While a few are designed for Christmas and the holiday season, others can work for any occasion. They each have a unique design and a little whimsy that you'll love.

The gift tags can be customized with your creative charm as well. While a few look great on a vintage brown cardstock, others are a perfect excuse to use your favorite scrapbook paper with modern patterns. The shapes are easy to cut out from paper or cardstock and you can use decorative edge scissors for a unique touch. They could also be used to embellish scrapbook pages, handmade cards, or other paper projects you're working on.


  • For blank templates, print the template onto scrap paper. Use the scrap as a template and transfer the design onto your good, quality cardstock or paper. This approach allows you to arrange the templates to make maximum use of your paper.
  • Store the printed templates in an envelope or file. You can use them for other projects and will always have them on hand for last-minute gift wrapping.
  • Use your favorite stamps to decorate the gift tags to match handmade cards or gift wrap.
  • Jazz up the gift tags by attaching them with bright ribbons or fancy yarns.
