Easy Gift Sets | Make your own gift tags!


My favorite way to package up gift sets is by using crinkle paper and cello bags. It's easy, adaptable for any occasion, and super affordable. I don't know about you, but I hate spending a ton on gift wrapping and would much rather spend that money on the gift itself. That doesn't mean I like to sacrifice the look and appearance of a gift which is why I love using these as a starting point for gift sets and then personalizing them with my own gift tags.



In case you didn't already know, I absolutely love making my own graphics. I love that I can easily personalize anything and the software available these days makes it super easy to do. My preferred program to use at the moment is Picmonkey which is free and very user friendly. I used to love Paint.net for everything, but Picmonkey is usually great for 90% of what I do. I used Picmonkey to create all the gift tags in this post. With the help of a fellow Posh Premier who shared her original brilliant designs, I was able to take what she designed and expand from there. Without her help, I would've never thought to use gift tags in this way so thank you!

Amaaazing All Mixd Up Bath Salts

Perfectly Posh has a variety of products with the perfect names to help you get your mind rolling on gift sets and tags. I've been using the Amaaazing bath salts the most as of late and will be super sad when I'm out of my stash and the retired product is no longer available online. For my most recent event, I decided to make generic tags that would be perfect for any occasion. With some brainstorming help from my husband, here are the newest tags we came up with:

Which one is your favorite?

Things you'll need:

  • Cello bags (I purchase from Hobby Lobby, Joann, or Dollar Tree)
  • Stuffing like crinkle paper (The stuffing above is from Dollar Tree)
  • Twine or ribbon (Buy online or from any craft store)
  • Gift tag (Purchase or make your own and print on cardstock/kraft paper)
  • Hole punch for the tag
  • Small elastic rubberband

Tip: Use a small elastic to tie the bag before finishing off with twine or ribbon. I use the little girl's hair ties and it makes it so much easier!

To dress it up even more, you can always add candy, a gift card, or more product! If you're making these for gifts, I love including extras to make it even more special. For events, I like to include a sign to suggest throwing in a gift card to round out the perfect gift.

What's your favorite way to package gifts? If you're using Posh products, I'd love to hear your creativity and see what you're doing in the comments below! If you're looking for the perfect gift set, be sure to email me at poshbysimone@gmail.com or visit my website at www.HiPosh.com.
