Lauren’s Holiday Job

Lauren Conrad has a new job over the holiday season, she’s writing a column for iVillage!

For the month of December, Lauren will be guest-blogging for the website; her first post is all about giving your holiday gifts the personal touch.

Lauren shares:

During the holiday season I think a lot of us get caught up in the idea of giving simply to give instead of giving thoughtfully. To ensure my presents feel personalized, I like to make my own gift tags. It’s really quite simple and doesn’t require a lot of time, but makes a big difference as opposed to using store-bought tags.

This year, I started making gift tags with watercolors and watercolor paper. I started this project a few weeks ago and whenever I have some downtime I pull out my supplies and make a few. (It’s a great activity to do while you’re catching up on your favorite fall shows!)

I created a tag template by tracing a playing card onto watercolor paper and then cut out a whole stack of them to decorate. Like I said before, I used watercolor supplies to create my tags this year. However, other materials I’ve been known to use include glitter pens, stamps (which I like to trace over with glue and glitter), and scrapbook letters. If you’re not particularly artistic, definitely give the stamps and scrapbook letters a try.

What do you think?

I encourage all of you to take a little time to give this thoughtful touch a try. It’s simple and the recipients of your gifts will really appreciate your added efforts.

Are you going to make your own gift tags this year? What materials do you plan to use?

Happy crafting!
XO Lauren
