I love Christmas and if I can combine Christmas and being creative then even better. I totally adore these fabulous free printable Christmas gift tags to colour and personalise. They are fab to colour in on the dark nights leading up to the festive season and you can add your own stamp to them. These were coloured in by my best friends nine-year-old. Hasn’t he done an amazing job?
Free Printable Gift Tags to Colour and Personalise
A couple of weeks ago I went on a fab festive crafting day hosted by Fellows and Maggie from Red Ted Art (just take a look at the Elves we made) and these tags were inspired by a set of colouring baubles that she designed. I mentioned that they would make ace gift tags and you could pop a photo on the rear. That is me and Collete from We are Going on an Adventure below – take a look at her post to see what else we made.
When I was growing up my mum always wrapped our gifts in different wrapping paper rather than popping tags on them and this is something that I have continued, however, I love the idea of popping a photograph of the recipient on the tag and then it can be used year in and out and even better you can add more each year with newer pictures on. I can see this being the start of an annual tradition for us here. I also love the idea of upcycling last year’s Christmas cards to make gift tags.
Supplies to make Gift Tags to Colour:
- White Cardstock
- Scissors or paper trimmer
- Hole Punch
- Butchers twine or ribbon
- Colouring supplies of your choice (we used a selection of watercolour paints, pencils and pens)

These were coloured by my best friends nine years old over half term during screen-free time.
I love the colours that he chose.
I cut out the tags and the photographs and then using a glue stick and glued them together before punching a hole in.
Then I laminated them and cut them out again and punched the hole in. This means they will keep without crumpling and can be used each year going forward.
Then I threaded some butchers twine through the hole to attach to the presents.
I really do love how these Free Printable Christmas Gift Tags to Colour and Personalise have turned out. They would make really great inexpensive Christmas tree decorations too.
