I love to add personal touches that my guests can take home with them after Christmas. I think there’s something special about receiving something handmade and it makes people feel loved. It could be anything. A little gift waiting for them on the Christmas dinner table or a sweet treat to enjoy later. Or maybe personalised Christmas gift tags that can be reused as tree decorations next year. It doesn’t matter. I’m sure whatever it is, it will make your guests feel like you went the extra mile to add those little touches.

Last year I gave all of the females a wine glass that I had glittered red and added some Prosecco dust in little jars. The girls loved them and all took them home. I gave the men little sleighs made out of chocolate bars and candy canes. They were really quick and easy to make and both the sleighs and glasses were inexpensive to make.
This year I wanted to try something a little different. I am trying to use less Christmas wrapping paper as it is not able to be recycled. I will still use traditional wrapping paper for the children, but for the adults I’m going to use brown paper. Brown paper isn’t particularly nice to look at though, so I wanted to find a way to make each gift look a little nicer. I decided that I would use bright coloured ribbon and I would make my own tags that could be used again as Christmas decorations the following year.
Here’s How I Made My Personalised Christmas Gift Tags
I started off by rolling the clay out until it was about half a centimetre thick.
Then I cut shapes out of the clay – I chose mainly stars and hearts, but you could choose any shape.
Next I used a skewer to make a small hole in each shape. Make sure the hole is big enough to fit twine or cord through.
Using the little stamps I had bought, I pressed ‘Christmassy’ words into each shape.
The tags were then left overnight to dry. Some of the tags cracked slightly as they dried but I like how they look homemade so I kept them as they were.
I wrapped each gift in brown paper, tied a ribbon around it and then added my personalised Christmas gift tags. (Use a normal gift tag to write the recipient’s name and a short message on).
I think they look absolutely lovely both on the gifts and as tree decorations.
