    Do you still have the paint color samples from your last visit to the hardware store? Simply cut these into interesting shapes and use it as tags. Since these are already colorful, you can pair it with plain or solid-colored wrappers.


    Illustration boards

    If your child has extra boards from previous projects, cut it into stars or in the shape of a Christmas stocking. Use colorful chalk when writing the name of your friend or loved one.

     If you love doodling and scribbling, you can create your own designs—simply draw these on recycled paper and you're good to go! You may want to write your friend's favorite quote or song lyric too! They can keep the gift tag as souvenir.
