Mom Gift or Teacher Gift Idea
With Free Printable Gift Tag
This idea is great for a mom gift, teacher gift, graduation gift or for just about anyone. It can be changed up to fit the person to make it extra special.
There really are endless options you could do with a gift tote. I did a summer bag but it could be done as a gardeners bag, beauty/spa bag, art supplies just to give you a few ideas.
This is what I included in this summer bag idea, but you can add more or less. Most of the items are super budget friendly too and can be found at just about any dollar store.
Included In Summer Tote Gift:
- Pair Flip Flops
- Nail Polish
- Sun Glasses
- Summer Hat
- Spray Bottle
- Beach Towel
- Reusable Water Bottle
- Foot File/Brush With Pumice Stone
- Tissue Paper
You could also include some sunscreen and some after sun gel.
I have made two different versions of the free printable gift tag. I used the white text one for in the pictures (shows better in person than on the picture). But there is also a black text option. So feel free to use whichever one you like best.
Here is a picture of what the tags look like. They will print with four to a sheet of paper.
How To Attach:
After you have printed out your chosen gift tag. Use some scissors or a paper cutter to cut them apart.
Then simply use a hole punch to make a hole in the tag. I put a hole in the top left corner.
You want to make sure you put the hole down enough to it does not tear at the edge, but not so much that you hit the text of the tag.
Then use some string, twin or even ribbon to slip through the hole and around the handle of the tote bag. For mine, I just used some embroidery thread.
Tie it in a knot or a bow and then cut off any extra string with a pair of scissors.
That is all there is to make this super simple and cute mom gift or teacher gift idea!
