Ornaments as Tags on your Gifts

Growing up my Mom had her box of “doo dads” as she called them, that she used as the tags on our presents each year.


They may not be the most fancy wrapping but they bring back such fond memories! She used all sorts of ornaments and had special ones that even had our names on them. Her Mom, my Grandma Gloria, had also done this on her presents.





I use the ones she had for my boys on their presents for her 12 years of Christmas gifts. This year when all the ornaments go on sale I plan on finding some I can add my boys names onto so I can continue this tradition in our family. As a special surprise in her box I found all sorts of cards that we had given her over the years. Most of them from when we were younger. It was fun to see the ones she had kept. It’s a clever idea to put them in the box she used for wrapping because then she could see them each year when she was wrapping presents. I can see her now sitting and reading them and getting a little weepy while she wrapped presents. She was always so full of such great and small ways to remember and carry on sentimental traditions.
