20 lovely free printable tags/labels for herbs, spices, home-made preserves and gifts

I'm feeling rather smug as I've just prepared two Christmas gifts, but I  will probably now do nothing until two days before Christmas and then panic. I love home-made gifts and I always have intentions to gift more than I actually do.  Home-made gifts  not only  indicate  good intentions but also love, thought, consideration,  dedication of ones time,  planning and  more......If they taste  and look good too, so much the better.

Spending a little extra time to add a tag or label to a home-made item or gift really does improve it's appearance and value,  not only to others but also oneself. I often add stickers to label the contents and date of my concoctions, but since discovering so many lovely free printables my home-made stuff looks so much better.

There are so many talented designers out there who generously share their work.  The graphics world is very competitive,  much thought and time goes into design, colours and calligraphy  and  I can understand why graphics design and marketing is so important.

I added tags to some bottles of hedgerow vinegar. The vinegar is very tasty. I followed the same procedure that I used last year for  elderberry-red-wine-vinegar , but also added  some sloes, blackberries and crab apples and simmered it for a little longer so it is denser. The tags that I used are a lovely vintage design from eatdrinkchic.com. I am sharing them along with other favourite free printable tags and labels. I hope they inspire you to gift something home-made this Christmas.

The tags can be glued to card stock to make them sturdier. Make holes with a hole punch.
The labels  look good attached with sticky back plastic ( self-adhesive vinyl film).
