The other day I was browsing Target, aka the one-hundred-dollar store, and remembered I needed socks as soon as I saw all of the cute knee-high socks.  (Kind of like I remember I need M&M’s when I walk through the candy aisle, or teal sparkly flats when I walk through the shoe aisle, or any other thing I totally don’t need but decide I need the moment I see it.  Especially at Target.)  But with boot season in full swing, who doesn’t need more tall socks?  They were so cute that I picked up a few extras to gift to some friends.  I didn’t plan on posting about this, but when I packaged them up and made a fun tag to go on them, I figured I’d share them with you all, in case anyone could use a cute, inexpensive little gift this week.  You can find fun socks all over the place these days; I think Target even has holiday socks in their dollar section.

Since we’re talking toes, I grabbed some cute nail polishes too, when I saw them in coordinating colors.

And I love these little bells; found them at Target too, in the ornament section.  (See what I’m talking about??  The longer I walk around Target, the more my cart fills up.)  They came in tubes of 4 for a couple of bucks and I loved how they matched the socks and polish.  Those colors just make me happy.

So here’s my loot, but really, if don’t have all of this, any cute pair of socks will do 🙂

Now all we have to do is package them up.  Socks might seem random, unless…you have a cute label wishing someone cozy toes in a cold winter.  And I got ya covered there!  I did a multicolored version, and a wintery blue version.  (One thing to note- in the download available for you guys, I changed it from ‘all winter’ to ‘this winter’)

I put the socks in a regular cellophane bag (which I always have tons of because I use them for goodies).  The labels have a faint dotted line to show you where to fold it over.  Place the fold right over the folded top of the cellophane bag and punch two holes that go right through the paper and the bag.  Slip a ribbon through, and string on a bell or other little ornament if you want.

I purposely made them nice and roomy on top (the white part) so there would be plenty of space on the back to write a little message.

Gift them out, or pop them in a cute container with some goodies.

Now go forth, and gift socks!

    What a cute — and colorful — idea! Heading to Target now to pick up some cute socks to make these for a couple last-minute gifts.

    Barbara Ann says:

    Hi! I LOVE this idea! I have a technical question for printing the labels. If I can’t print these tags at home, does anyone know if I can have them printed at a print shop? I am (almost) completely ignorant of printing cute things from my old school printer and have always been jealous of those people who make these cute things. Any help on how I can print these out? TIA!!

    • 23.1

      Barbara, I’m sure you could print it at a copy/print store. You just need to have the file. Just click on the link in the post to open the pdf file and then on that file click File>Save As, and then save it to either your computer or a flash drive. You can then either upload the file directly to the copy store on their website (like at FedexKinkos) or take your flash drive into the store and have them do it. At some places you may be able to have them pull it up directly from our site on their computers as well. Hope that helps!

    I love this idea. I was on hospital bed rest during my last pregnancy for 2 months over the holidays. I like to go back every year on my “anniversary” date and bring gifts to the moms that are currently in that unit. This will be the perfect gift for next year! Thanks for sharing.

    Mariel says:

    I swear, Target is a money-sucker. I think it’s a slick trick they’ve got going on…literally EVERY time I go there, I guess how much I think I spent, while waiting at the cash register, then I tack on a hundred bucks, and I’m just about right! What the?!? Are they ringing things up at higher prices?? Infusing a mist into the air causing confusion and irresponsibility? Telling every single employee to ask if we need help, so we lose our purchase calculations in our mind? That place is dangerous, they’re up to something. And, your socks idea is super cute! Would have never thought of it 🙂 Have a fantastic Christmas, ladies!

    Mariel @ Or so she says…

    I love your many wonderful and creative ideas…only come out with them a little sooner than the week OF christmas next year !!! So, where do you get the cellophane baggies? Do tell. and the boxes? Do, do tell…..pleez?

    • 34.1

      The buckets in this post are from the Target dollar section. And I usually get my baggies at the craft store! These aren’t planned posts- just little “bonuses” that I made for myself and thought others might enjoy 🙂

I saw these first thing in the morning and ran out and got stuff to do 8 of them for teachers, friends, visiting teachers, etc. I also added a packet of hot chocolate mix, a candy cane and a snack size bag of marshmallows {following the warm theme}.

    I, too, made a trip today to Target for socks and polish for my big and little girls—then I thought
    my sons-in-law need socks, too! And I found travel size tubes of men’s face lotion to include with theirs.
    I know they won’t probably be as impressed with the cute packaging as the girls, but that’s ok! Thanks for such a cute idea—will also be using it next year for friends gifts!

    Jessica says:

    I LOVE THIS! I am 22 and always put a cute little take home treat at my mom’s Christmas party for everyone to have at their table setting. We bought fuzzy socks for the girl nieces and target mens socks for the nephews (22 total!) and printed off your cute template and added each person’s names to it!

    We left to go out of town on Tuesday evening. Tuesday morning my daughter decides she needs to make and deliver 5 friend gifts amid all the other things we had to do to get ready to leave. I printed out the tags, ran to Tar-jay and put these together lickety-split. We put a handful of chocolates in the bottom of each container (found in the $1 section) at Tar-jay. Loved them! So cute, will probably do again.

    Andrea says:

    LOVE this! Thanks so much for the idea. I like to put a little, fun package together when I give gift cards or money (to those older nieces and nephews who either want cash or cars!). These are great. You could even add those little foam toe spreaders for when you paint your toenails and maybe a mini bottle of some great foot cream.

    Ahhh Target. Is there nothing you can’t do for us? 🙂

    Thank you so much for the wonderful idea! It’s been a tough year and I didn’t think I’d be able to get the little gifts I normally do to pass out to friends. I was in my local Dollar Store today and they had a large rack of nail polish in many many different colors. I walked over to where they have the fuzzy sleep socks, picked up 11 pair then back over to the nail polish to make my matches. I know these are going to be a hit with everyone. 11 gifts for $22, pretty good deal!!

    It was pretty obvious that I wasn’t the only one excited by this post when I got to Target last night. 🙂 Thanks for the great idea!! As much as I love edible treats, this time of year is usually bombarded – such a cute and fun alternative!

    Deirdre says:

    Thank you so much for the fabulous gift idea for the ladies in my life!
    I went to Target on my lunch break today and the socks were $2.50 each.
    The nail polish section was picked over heavily, but I did find some nice co-ordinating colors with the socks. I actually found a garnet and gold colored argyle for my FSU fans! They didn’t have the colorful jingle bells, but did have the larger red and gold ones for $1.40 for 4 or 5 (30& off.)
    I am going to make a couple for Januray b-day gifts as well!

    love the printable, and thank you for sharing! however, it says “C Cozy,” which I don’t get. the blue tag looks so cool and frosty — just like winter!

      I think that is supposed to be “&” (and) before the C. So it says “warm & cozy”.

    I love this! Just made some for my co-workers. I added a cute heart shaped nail buffer & a few wrapped chocolate candies. Didn’t have any bells to add, but it looks fine with some holiday colored wool tied in a bow. Thanks so much for the printable tags! All the best to you this holiday season. Cheers!

    These are such adorable, inexpensive gifts for coworkers and friends. I just got done making several and they turned out adorable. I added a nail file, that I was able to find at Michaels for 75% off in the dollar bins. Thanks for printable tags and sharing the idea. Merry Christmas!!

    I used the multicolored tag and made this as a little gift for our babysitter along with a gift card. I love the way it turned out, so simple to make.

    I love the tags! Can you send me the label in Word so that I can change it for a headband?
