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!

And be sure to check back tomorrow, when I should have one more printable up for you for a super easy, super cheap, super fast edible gift (that you don’t have to lift a finger to make!)
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.
Were these all at Target?
Random question, but can you tell me the name of the font you used for the word “warm”?? I’d love to use it for some other projects. This is a great gift idea, by the way.
It’s called “Budmo Jiggler” (seriously, who names these things?? lol) Here ya go: http://www.dafont.com/budmo-jiggler.font
I am finished with my gifts for this year but I am adding it to the list for next year, especially for co-workers and stocking stuffers. Also like the idea of adding a mini nail care kit to it, or foot lotion. Thanks so much. Love your blog!
These are adorable, I am making them for my coworkers tonight for Christmas! Thanks for this great idea.
Completely cute idea that I’m borrowing for last-minute gifts for my mom and sister. Thanks!
Thank-you for this great Christmas gift idea!! Found you on Pinterest 🙂
I love that this is already floating around Pinterest, we’ve had a few people mention they saw it there this morning! Glad you found us Meesh, stick around!
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!!
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!
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.
Oh My!! I bought warm fuzzy socks for my son’s teachers this year AND I made the peppermint popcorn AND I bought the same gift ‘buckets’ at Target. Could these printables be more perfect? Thank you!!
Dude, I’m a mind-reader! Glad it’s good timing for ya 😉
So Dang cute! A Great idea for my GIRLS!
Love these!!! They are perfect for what I need to finish up 🙂 Do you have any suggestions of what you could put in place of the nail polish for men and little boys? Thank you!!! You both are wonderful 🙂
Hmmm…toe nail clippers? Haha. Honestly, I’d probably just go with the plain socks!
Love, love, love!! This is such a cute idea! Thanks for sharing!
Your creativity never stops! I’m done for this year, hooray, but this is first on next years’ list!
Wonderful idea, I have been searching for a cute gift for my sister’s birthday (Jan 2nd). She will love this combination of gifts!!
THis is great thank you
I LOVE this idea!
What a great idea! I’m a little bummed that I just delivered the teacher gifts this morning because I so want to do this now! I guess I’ll save it for next year.
Thank you so much for the adorable printables!! I believe it is all in the packaging that really makes a gift special. I can’t wait to go find these socks and package them! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your website!!
This is an awesome gift idea. I can never have enough knee highs or nail polish!
These are perfect! I was just looking for some gift ideas to do on a budget…thanks for sharing, and thank you for the printables too! Merry Christmas!!!
Absolutely adorable idea. I did something like that for my nephews and their wife/girlfriend.
You girls are soooooooo clever and cute!! I wish I had some of it.
this idea couldn’t have come at a better time! looking for small gift ideas for my teen nieces… these are PERFECT! THANK YOU!!!!!! 🙂
I was just going to post the same thing! My teen nieces will be getting these cute gifts too. 🙂 Great minds think alike!
LOL I have a few pairs of those socks and love them. I would love a little gift like this.
Great idea! I was struggling with what to get two of my girl friends. You saved the day…or Christmas. 😉 I am off to Target this morning.
Just the cutest thing ever!
So adorable!! We were visiting the US from the UK last year and whilst out one day passed a Target. We decided to go in and have a look and came out $300 poorer.
I love this! It’s so nice you share your cute gift tags so that I won’t have to expose others to my chicken-scratch-sharpie notes.
yah what ever Wendy. Your printing is not chicken-scratch. Mine is. But yes it is nice to have it printed for you. So did Sara bring you ones of these by yet? 🙂
Oooh, purdy colors!
