While we’re on the subject of holiday gifts, let’s talk about wrapping. Once you get all your great bargains home, hiding them from prying eyes becomes your big concern. One way to take care of that is to wrap them right away—not only does it hide the gift, but you’ll have less to do once the holidays are upon us. The bane of my existence when it comes to holiday gift wrapping is those darn labels!
With a family of 5, I either have to write so tiny it’s barely legible or resort to the generic “The Sokol Family” or “Heather, Spencer and Girls” signature. I much prefer to give every gift giver an identity on the tag, but larger tags are extremely pricey and hard to find. My other irritation is those bulk gift sticker packs where half the stickers included aren’t even name labels, just cheesy clip art on a sticker. Then, Scary Mommy‘s brilliant gift tag idea spurred an idea to make my own holiday gift stickers.
The only thing I need to decide is if I’m having our names printed on it or just creating cute, decorative stickers large enough to hold everyone’s name in legible handwriting. We’re likely not adding to our family, considering we’ve had that particular issue handled (ahem), but the 250 stickers I’ve been offered from U-Printing will be around for quite some time. It probably wouldn’t hurt to leave myself open to other options—especially for all the times my sisters show up and ask for extra labels.

Definitely something to do with my Mary Kay business…maybe labels to stick on the backs of my business cards, offering a free lipstick?

I’d like to make Christmas to/from labels.
