Tips-y Tuesday

A quick lil tip for you today... Instead of filling out tag after tag to label your holiday gifts, why not assign each recipient their own special gift wrap? I don't mind doing the tags for friends and family at all, but for gifts under the Thompson family Christmas tree, we identify whose is whose and which is which by paper. Last year, Ellie's presents from Mommy and Daddy were wrapped in Littlest Pet Shop paper, but the all important treasures from Santa himself were decked out in Barbie. That went for Daddy, too. His treasures were plain to see in Superman gift wrap.
Just a thought...saves a little time, a little money, a little wrist action....and this time of year, who couldn't use that?

  1. Great ideas!
    We do the same with the boys--I don't know if you remember me telling you last year how we have to "mail" our paper to Santa at the North Pole :)

    Ben's is wrapped in a red snowflake paper and Nick's is green with snowmen. They picked it out at Hobby Lobby a few weeks back. That way we don't have to worry about recognizable handwriting on gift tags either when it comes to Santa gifts.
