I know it's so easy to just grab a pack of gift tags at the dollar store and be done with it, but nothing says you care like a beautiful, handmade gift tag. The gift could just be wrapped in newspaper or a plain brown paper bag, but it will look like a million bucks with a creatively crafted gift tag on top. Here are some great ideas for Christmas gift tags that are pretty enough to keep and even hang on the tree.
