I’m a lazy gift wrapper, so if I can really avoid it, I’ll ditch the gift tag. As long as I remember who it’s supposed to go to, that’s fine, right?
Not this year. Instead of my normal habit of forgetting to shop until the week before Christmas, I decided to get most of the important purchases done during the first week of December. My family opens gifts on or around Epiphany, so trying to remember which gift is for whom after a whole month sounded a bit too much for my aging brain. Instead, I figured I’d use leftovers from around the house to make gift tags instead of buying them and save myself the embarrassment of giving lipstick to my father.
