Cheap and full of christmas cheer...

If, like me, Christmas this is year is a homespun affair you'll be looking for some ways to save money, but still keep things looking festively-stylish [or stylishly festive].

There are some great resources online to help you on your way, here a few of my favourites.

Martha Stewart always has great ideas for the holidays and she has some lovely free gift-tag downloads that look very chic, click on the link here for ideas.

Another place to go is the brilliant design blog Paperseed which is by a graphic designer in Portland, Oregan. Her designs have that simple, retro look that I just love, and the trick with all these ideas is to print them directly onto a thicker paper or card that you can get from a good craft centre.

These handmade tags are from BBC Food website - I'm thinking of whipping something tasty up for the Grandparents as a stocking filler, even if you don't use these templates the ideas are fun.

The last link is to another inspiring design blog, Eat Drink Chic by Amy Moss. Her labels have a very cute handwritten feel, great for any fashionable friends.

Have fun with your wrapping!
