Sometimes, wrapping presents is almost as much fun as giving them. I personally love to pick out shiny new paper and find fun ribbon and gift tags to dress up the boxes. Pretty presents not only look nice under your tree, they also add to the excitement as you hand them to your friend or loved one because let’s face it – if a present looks that good on the outside, the actual gift on the inside must be pretty awesome.
Christmas gift tags can help take your present to a whole new level. Sure, they’re functional, as they help you remember who the gift belongs to, but they also can add the perfect embellishment to your present that makes it look complete.
In the world of gift tags, there are two categories: sticker gift tags and tie-gift tags. I tend to lean towards tie-gift tags, as they add a little oomph to your present and are usually more unique and detailed. Sticker gift tags, however, are equally awesome and look nice, and they are also more convenient and easy to use. If you have what feels like a million gifts to wrap, sticker gift tags are the way to go.
Read on for our round-up of the best Christmas gift tags, broken down by tie gift tags first, and sticker gift tags last.
Best Christmas Tie Gift Tags
1. Party Funny Christmas Gift Tags
This large assortment of 60 Christmas gift tags includes a variety of designs in classic Christmas reds and greens. There are 24 foil tags, 16 glitter tags and 20 printed tags, and a total of 15 different designs with four of each design. All the variety makes it easy to mix and match tags amongst family members, but you can still use the same wrapping paper as the tags within the set all match each other. The tags are made with thick cardstock and have strings attached so they are easy to tie on to your present, and they have “To” and “From” printed on the back, so it’s clear who the gift is going to and who it’s from. The entire set is just under $10, so it’s a great deal and you can easily use just this set to cover all of your Christmas gifts, and you may even have some left over for Christmas next year.
2. Gift Boutique Large Christmas Gift Tags (100 pack)
If you prefer warmer, more traditional Christmas tones over bright reds and greens, this gift tag set is a good choice for you. The large set includes 100 gift tags in 10 different designs, so you will have more than enough tags to tie to all of your gifts, and probably next year’s gifts, and the year after that. The designs include everything from Santa Claus to a smiling snowman, and the colors match a variety of wrapping paper, gift bags, and gift boxes. Each of the tags is die cut and has a shiny metallic and/or glitter finish, so they add the perfect accent piece to your present. If you’re having a Christmas gift wrapping party with friends, this is a good set of tags to bring!
3. Outus Kraft Paper Hollow Christmas Tree Tags
I love wrapping with kraft paper. The light brown background gives you a blank slate to decorate with red and white twine, plaid ribbon, or Christmas bows, so you can personalize the wrapping for the gift recipient. These kraft paper tags go great with kraft wrapping paper, and they are unique as they have a Christmas tree cut out in the bottom corner of the tag. The set comes with 100 gift tags as well as 66 feet of twine, so there are plenty of tags to cover all of your gifts. Even if you don’t have kraft wrapping paper, the neutral nature of these tags makes it easy to match with a variety of Christmas wrapping paper patterns.
4. B-There Pack of 48 Christmas Gift Tags
These tags have a more modern feel, as the designs are printed in one color against a plain backdrop. There are 16 different designs – eight that are black print on kraft colored paper, and eight that are red print on white paper. The tags come pre-strung, so you can tie them to your packages without having to hassle with any extra string. Each of the tags is 1.75 inches wide and 1.38 inches tall, and the back is blank so you can write any message you wish. This set includes 48 tags, and is ideal for those who want more of a chic gift tag instead of a classic gift tag.
5. Paper Clever Party Rustic Christmas Tag Trio Blue and Silver
If you love to wrap your presents in wintery blues and sparkly silvers, this Christmas gift tag set will match perfectly. The set of 15 gift tags includes three different designs: a light blue tag that says “cheers” in silver, a white tag with a blue Christmas tree, and a light blue and silver tag that says “joy” and has a white Christmas tree. The tags are two inches wide and 3.5 inches long, so they are nice and big which gives you plenty of room to write your own message on the back of the tag. The tags do not come with punched holes or string, so you will need to do that yourself. While it’s a little extra work, it allows you to pick the exact string that you want. The tags are made in the USA.
Best Christmas Sticker Gift Tags
6. Christmas Gift Tag Stickers Modern Colorful Xmas Designs
If you have a lot of presents to wrap and gift bags to stuff, this set of Christmas gift tags is ideal as it comes with 60 gift tags. The stickers are on a big roll, making it easy to unroll, peel, and stick to your gift. There are a variety of different designs and colors ranging from penguins to reindeer, so it’s easy to find something that will match your wrapping paper. The stickers measure at 2.75 inches wide and 2.25 inches tall, so they are big enough to easily write on, but not so big that they overwhelm the present.
7. Paper and Presents Jumbo Christmas Gift Tag Stickers
These gift tag stickers are jumbo sized, so they are perfect for larger presents and gift bags. The set comes with 60 tags in six different designs, and all of them are red, white, and silver. The stickers are on a big roll, which makes it easy for wrapping and easy to store, as you don’t have sticker sheets everywhere. Each of the stickers is rectangular, and they have festive designs and Merry Christmas written on them. There is also a to/from spot on each sticker, so you won’t have any trouble remembering who the gift is for.
8. Big Dot of Happiness Prancing Plaid Squiggle Christmas Buffalo Plaid Stickers
Buffalo plaid is fun to decorate with over the holidays, so why not use it on your presents, too? This set of 16 gift tag stickers has a red and black buffalo plaid pattern on the back with the words “very merry” written in white. There is also a to/from section, so you can write your name and the gift recipient’s name (note, it’s kind of a small section so you’ll need to write small). These tags are also unique in that they are cut out in a a squiggle design, instead of a circle or rectangle edge. The stickers are 2.25 inches by 1.75 inches, and they come on one sheet.
9. Tinksky Christmas Gift Tag Stickers
If you have a seriously long present list this year, this sticker set is for you as there are 144 gift tags.

The stickers come on sheets and are easy to remove, and there is plenty of room to write down the gift recipient’s name.
10. Holiday Season Christmas Gift Tag Bows
Kill two birds with one stone with these gift tags, as they are shaped liked bows. The tags have a self-adhesive back so they still stick right on to the package, but they are shaped like a bow so you don’t need any additional bows to complete the present. The center of the bow has a to/from section, so you still have the functionality of the gift tag. The bows are super cute and come in a variety of colors and designs that are all sparkle and foil, so they’ll really pop on top of your presents. There are only 12 gift tags in the set, so you may need to order multiple packs to ensure you cover all of your gifts.
