It’s so crazy how as soon as Halloween is over Thanksgiving and Christmas preparations begin. And while I’m definitely not passing up Thanksgiving, it’s time to start gathering ideas for family, loved ones, and (of course) neighbors!
I first gave this gift to my neighbors 6 years ago–we had just moved into a neighborhood and I wanted to give a fun gift that would be a little different than the typical neighbor gifts–something useful, thoughtful, and memorable. I was able to find some gift wrap on a super clearance, and came home to find a fun saying to go with it.
I wanted something that tied wrapping with Christmas and wasn’t cheesy or puny. When I found this quote, I was sold.
I also love that this is a gift that takes very little time to put together. Print out the tag, layer it (optional), and tie or tape it to your roll of wrapping paper. The quote does all the talking, and it’s already wrapped. 🙂
It was a big hit, and so today I’m sharing it with you–you can print the tags in either teal, red, or black to go with your gift wrap and ribbon choice.

For the best timing, it’s fun to deliver your gift wrap a week or two before Christmas–before everyone has wrapped their presents–but even last minute works. There are lots of people who are still wrapping the night before (me included).
You could argue that there’s still a pun (presence instead of presents) but I think it’s perfect. It evokes a quaint scene of happiness that embodies the spirit of Christmas.
So go find some fabulous gift wrap and get your list going!
What a fun, easy and practical gift, Lisa.
This is something that every needs and would appreciate — and it’s also calorie free!
It’s like a gift you’re required to re-gift! Brilliant.
Very cute idea!
This is such a thoughtful and useful gift idea. Your printable makes it meaningful and easy to put together! 🙂
Super clever idea! I have a ton (I always buy too much on clearance), this would be an easy gift!
