For most of us, Father’s Day is one of the most creatively challenging celebrations. But it’s said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so it stands to reason that you can’t go wrong with a food-related gift. We rounded up five free printables that can help you turn Dad’s favourite snacks into cause for celebration (even if he’s not willing to share!).

Printable Holiday cads and tags

Print your own Holiday cards

There are so many amazing FREE printables available for Christmas. So many, in fact, that we had to split our round-up into four parts! My favourite part of wrapping Christmas gifts is adding a personalized tag with a sweet note for the gift recipient. This year the real challenge won’t be finding time to wrap the gifts, it will be choosing which of these cute tags to use!

If you holiday budget doesn’t leave much room for Christmas cards, download this hand-drawn card from Mufn Inc. There’s even space to customize it with your name.

Gold Gift Wrap Ideas from Shim + Sons

Don’t you love receiving a gift that’s impeccably wrapped? It’s almost like receiving two presents in one: a pretty package and the treat that’s inside it.

Coordinating your gift wrap with your holiday decor is an easy way to create a unified look in your space. Using a multitude of boldly colored patterns and prints can overwhelm the rest of your decorations, so keep it simple by sticking to one colorway.

In the Holiday issue of new digital magazine Gifted, designer Sally Shim of Shim + Sons shared simple packaging techniques using white and gold paper goods for an incredibly sophisticated look.

Gift Wrapping ideas by Sally Shim

Basic white boxes are wrapped with bands of vellum for a frosty feel; graphic patterns drawn with a ruler and a gold marker look especially modern. I also love the woven gold paper strips. It’s a clever play on the tartan trend that can easily be re-interpreted with other shades to match your decor. You can find instructions for all of Sally’s wrapping ideas in Gifted magazine. They made the cover page!

Easy to Made Muslin and Burlap Gift Bags

How you wrapped your gifts makes a statement. People are exploring new ways than the predictable paper gift bags. For small items, I really like what Maya Made did with her rustic gift bags. Maya Donenfeld likes to recycle materials for gift wrapping, whenever it is possible. Her gift bags take literally 2 minutes to make with a sewing machine. She continued with the natural look by printing her own gift tags on kraft paper. Get the instructions on Maya Made. Lovely!

Gift Wrapping Ideas from Martha

typewritten gift tags and photo gift toppers as seen on martha stewart

This is a great idea if you do not have a beautiful handwriting. Start with one of the small address label templates available on Microsoft Word to create your own custom-made typewritten gift tags. Mixing font sizes and styles produces a chic tag. But make sure to select a serif font if you wish to write in capital letters. You can also find a print your typed gift tag template on Martha Stewart.

Another idea is to affix a festive photo of the giver instead of putting the typical bow or gift ornaments. You write on the bottom of the gift the recipient on a stock card that is narrower than the ribbon.
