The secret to great Christmas gifts

Every year, we all face the same challenge: we want to give Christmas gifts that are special, but we don’t have an unlimited budget!

Here at Avery, we’ve got a quick and easy solution to share with you. We’ve found that a really effective way to create gifts that people will treasure is simply to personalise them.

You can make any gift look amazing by adding a professional looking custom printed label or sticker using our free Design & Print template software. But what makes it really unique is having the recipient’s own name on it.

Personalised labels add the wow factor

Whether your gifts are homemade or shop bought, a personalised label makes each gift individual. It shows that care has gone into the gift, which most people appreciate just as much (if not more) than money.

So here’s another secret: it doesn’t actually take much time or effort to personalise gifts. To make each label different, you just select the option to edit each label individually, rather than edit all at once in the template software. That’s all there is to it!

Avery Design and Print online software has template designs for all kinds of sticky labels and cards, which you can turn into tags that you can tie on with string or ribbon.  

There’s a great range of fun Christmas designs, which you can customise, or blank templates on which you can create your own. The easy to use software lets you add colours, shapes and words with a wide choice of fonts, and you can also upload your own pictures.

Whether you choose white or coloured paper, brown Kraft or clear, the premium label material will enhance your designs. And you can print right to the edge for that really stunning, professional look.

Christmas with little ones – help from Avery Design & Print

Tip for toddlers

Unwrapping presents can be just as exciting as playing with what’s inside! If you’re labelling gifts for tots who are too young to read, make it even more fun by putting their picture on the label. That way, they’ll know which presents are for them.
