Review: Mabel's Labels Holiday Gift Tags

I have a dream for my life. In this dream, everything in my house is neat and put away.  My kids' belongings are labeled with their names. My kitchen is full of organized cupboards with things stacked where they belong. My messy closet is full of bins with labels identifying the contents, so that I don't have to constantly search to find what I am looking for....

Yeah, not really living that dream right now, thanks to the two small people in my life.  But I'm getting there slowly, and that's all because of Mabel's Labels and their kind support of my search for organizational nirvana in my life.  Go here to read my first review of their products! We're still using and loving the labels that I reviewed back in September- they really are fantastic.

This time I was lucky enough to receive a pack of Mabel's Labels Holiday Gift Tags.  The gift tags come in a set of 24 tags, for $18.50.  The really cool thing about these is that you can customize them to say whatever you want.  If you want 24 tags that say "Merry Christmas from the Smiths", you can do that. And if you want 24 tags, each with a different name on them, you have that option too!  We did a combination of things- some tags said Merry Christmas and our names, others we customized for our kids gifts, and we even made some that said "Happy Birthday" or just "Congratulations", for future use.  There are four different sets of tags, Winter Wonderland, Festive Forest, Holly Jolly and Twinkle Twinkle, each set with three different types of stickers on the same theme.  We picked the Twinkle Twinkle set, which has nice purple colors and candles and stars.

It's really easy to customize the labels- you just type in your message and you can see a preview on your screen of exactly what the labels will look like. The labels are a nice size, over 2 inches big, so they'll be easy to see on your gifts. I am one of the world's worst present wrappers, but I think that the holiday gift tag made even my badly wrapped present look good!


Mabel's Labels also has a nice set of Holiday Return Address Labels, $18.50 for a set of 200.  I think these would make your Christmas Cards look great!

In addition to the great holiday products, Mabel's Labels still has all their other wonderful labels for whatever you want to label. Seriously, the options are endless. They also have a great new label, their Label Out Loud Sticky Labels in full color. And, from now through December 6th, a portion of the proceeds of the sales of the Label Out Loud Sticky Labels will go to Anissa Mayhew's family. Anissa is a beloved blogger who, at the age of only 35, suffered a stroke last week.  So you can get some great labels for your kids and help Anissa's family out at the same time. 

So, if you are looking for some great labels or gift tags or address stickers or whatever else, stop by Mabel's Labels and check their options out!
