Best Christmas Tags Ever

It's a Christmas miracle!  


If you're my friend in person or have been a reader for a while, then you know that I am one girl with two brothers.  Neither have married {yet}, so there are no other girls in my family to dish over the cutesie little things that I love doing, especially when it comes to wrapping gifts.  Most of my brothers' wrapping is "close your eyes" as they pull out our gifts from a big shopping bag and hand the presents to us naked and raw.  Even though I love to wrap a gift and my mom's spiritual gift is flamboyant wrapping, our efforts go un-appreciated.  Until now.



Mom, are you sitting down for this?  I showed Joseph my gift tags, hoping that just maybe he might take interest.  He picked them up and looked at them and said, "those are cool."  Not only did he take half a second to glance at them, but he liked them too!  A Christmas miracle.  



It was a simple quiet statement that didn't have a lot of enthusiasm, but it spoke volumes.  I might have done it.  I found wrapping that my brothers will notice and like.  Appreciate and enjoy are too grand to expect.  If one of these gift tags make it to the dashboard of their car or becomes a bookmark, then I might pop the bubbly.  



Last night, I was armed with green tea and Parenthood on Netflix, so I started tagging all those presents.  Sometimes, I stay up past everyone's bedtime and enjoy the house {sort of} to myself. Night time is where I do my best work.  During this time of year, pair that nighttime high with Christmas cheer, and I'll get stuff done.  

Feeling excited now?  Want the coolest tags ever?  Want to impress the men in your life with your wrapping?  Go here for free vintage mountain tags.  I printed mine with my normal printer and cut them out with my own two hands.  Whether you're working late or early, hard or not at all, may you enjoy the process of gifting to others.
