Wrap Up Your Holiday List with Our Mini Gift Guide

You baked. You shopped. You wrapped. And just when you think you’ve taken care of everyone on your holiday list, it dawns on you…

Smack! Facepalm.

Oh man, you’ve forgotten to include someone. A person who really makes a difference in your daily life. And it won’t be a joyful holiday until you make it right.

This mini holiday gift guide is for anyone’s who’s accidentally non-gifted in years past. We’ve put together a batch of thoughtful, giftable ideas you can put together in a pinch. And with Avery labels, cards and tags, and free design templates from Avery Design & Print, you can personalize the presents with your own unique touch.

So let’s get cracking, because these holiday gifts aren’t going to make themselves.

For the dinner host/hostess

Personalized Wine Gift

Going to a fancy dinner party? Even decked out in your finest duds, you’d be a slob if you showed up empty-handed. So, be sure to make your grand entrance with a gift for your gracious host or hostess in tow. Snag a bottled of wine, infused oil or even a plant, and personalize with a label or tag.

For the teacher who makes a difference

When your kid comes home from school excited about what they’re learning, thank your lucky stars they have a great teacher. One way to show the teacher your appreciation is with heartfelt gifts you and your child can create together. Food-in-a-jar gifts are great fun to make, and easy to decorate with festive labels and tags.

For the helpers who make life easier

Gift Card Holders

Here’s another gift idea for teachers, and for others who help us all year long. I mean, what would we do without the babysitter, dog walker, hair dresser and mail carrier? Show them how much they mean to you with this plastic token of thanks. To gift, personalize a note card with a personal message. Carefully cut slits in the note card and tuck the gift card surprise inside.

For the pals who made your year memorable

Here’s to the pals who’ve made your year special—whether sharing ideas at your book club, surviving crazy projects at work or kindling a friendship while watching your children play sports. A cozy cocoa mug kit is a cheery way to say, “Thanks for all the good times.” Wrap a mug filled with cocoa and marshmallows in cellophane, and close it tight with a rubber band. Personalized a scalloped tag, then tie it on with ribbon.

For your children’s classmates

Whether you’re participating in a classroom winter party or throwing an end-of-the-year party of your own, bag topper kits make it easy to pack the party favors. Each kit comes with printable toppers you can customize with Avery Design & Print, and clear, self-sealing poly bags.

For the best neighbors ever

Neighborly Pie Gift

If the people next door make you feel like you won the best neighbor lottery, show them how much they mean to you in fine holiday gift form. Forget the blue basket. We’re thinking of a fluted pie dish filled with your award-winning pie or recipe cards using postcards for your favorite crusty creations..

It’s the season of giving. Make sure you’ve got everyone covered, and let Avery help you package your holiday gifts with a thoughtful, personal touch. Then relax and enjoy the joyful occasion, and celebrate with those who make a difference in your world.
