Christmas freebies: Gift tags, part 2


Happy Friday, friends! I'm writing this post from London, where I'm currently enjoying part business / part leisure trip, discovering all the admirable monuments, eating my way through as many Ladurée macarons as possible, and marveling onver the stunning and extraordinary Christmas lights and decorations.

And speaking of Christmas, I have a second round up of free gift tags just for you (find the first part here). These will come in handy when I'll be wrapping all the Christmas gifts I purchased here in London. I really hope they'll be just as useful to you!

Happy Christmas gift wrapping!

Christmas freebies: Gift tags, part 1


I have to confess that this year I've been really itching to start publishing Christmas content. I'm not really sure why, but this year, the Christmas bug bit me well before the first Advent Sunday, and I've let my enthusiasm go a little overboard (as witnessed by my Instagram feed). I have a little tree decorated in Tiffany blue & pink on my desk, a string of fairy lights hanging on my window, a huge batch of gingerbread cookies on which I'm practicing my icing skills, and the Christmas songs playing all day long. See? I can't help it. And why should I, anyway?

But there are still gifts to be purchased. And who says gifts, says gift wrapping. I have decided to be a little more frugal with gift wraps this year (I'm currently saving up for one huge thing - I'll talk about it later), but that definitely doesn't mean that my packages should be less pretty. That's why I've spent a great deal of time scouring Pinterest for pretty but inexpensive ideas, and I've amassed quite a collection of free printable goodies. In the spirit of Christmas generosity, I'll be sharing them with you until the Christmas Eve (because there are always some last minute gifts to wrap, aren't there?). First round today, with these beautiful and chic printable gift tags. All you need to do is print them out, punch in a hole, add some bakers twine, and you're good to go!

 Happy Christmas gift wrapping!

PS: I was recently interviewed by the lovely Alison of the Splendid Paris blog. If you'd like to know what is my favorite spot for a picnic, where I love to spend a rainy afternoon, or what is my favorite farmer's market recipe when in Paris, be sure to pay Splendind Paris a visit.
