I know, it seems too early to be thinking about Christmas already but right now there are some good deals going around. So far by shopping the toy clearance shelves at local stores, I’ve completed half my christmas shopping! Whoohoo! For my family, the fall months through the first of the year are non-stop birthdays and holidays. So this year I’m trying to be prepared. I just saw that Vistaprint is having a one-day sale on return address labels (ends Midnight Sept. 27.) You can get 140 FREE Return Address Labels! With over 7,000 of designs to choose from, these labels are extremely versatile. The cool thing is that you don’t have to make return address labels–you could make them gift labels. Since there is an upload your custom design, the options are endless. You will have to pay shipping and handling charges which range from $3.00 – $4.00 depending on where you live.
One year my girlfriends and I made sugar-scrubs as gifts. We stuck a label on the jar, tied some ribbon and had cute teacher/friends Christmas gifts. This year we plan on making homemade vanilla extract and desserts in a jar. I think I’m going to design some labels to go on our homemade gifts.
Will you be making homemade gifts this year? If so, please share — I’m always looking for gift ideas.
I’d love to look at what you’ve done so feel free to past posts of your gift ideas in the comments. I’ve started a Small Gifts Pinterest board and I’m always looking for new ideas to add there too.
