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!)
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 searched all over for an inexpensive gift for my close friends, and i found it! Thank you!
I can not get the tags to download. Can you please send it to me via email? Thank you. My son has a school project in where he has to make something to put in the santa shop to sell to raise money to buy toys for the children who will not have a christmas. Thanks so much! Dana
Hi there. I made these last year and they were a hit! I am wondering where you got your fonts from. I am trying to find some similar so that I can do some other designs.
My teenage daughter and I just bought nail polish, slipper socks and nail files for 14 of her friends to bag up as little pampering sets for Christmas. This saying and these tags were perfect to finish them off! Thanks for providing them! I think we will do them for her coaches, too, since they turned out so cute!
thanks so much for this cute idea and printable! my daughter and i made them for her friends for christmas and they look so cute. 🙂
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!
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!
Love this idea! I found some really cute candy cane-shaped nail files that I am going to include with the nail polish and socks 🙂
so cute!!! I was planning to do little gifts of just toenail polish with a gift tag that said for your mistletoes. love the addition of socks!
Perfect idea for my daughter’s secret santa!! Thanks!
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!!
I really need a Target closer than an hour and a half away! Alas, I WILL figure out a way to pull this adorable gift together without one…. 🙂
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? 🙂
Oh my goodness! This gives me so many good ideas. So cute! Looks like I will planning a trip to Target this weekend. Thank you for the nice post and the adorable ideas.
Thank you for this! We are doing this for my 13 year old gifts for her friends! Such a cute idea. Thanks for the printable labels!
Saw this last week on Pinterest and got all the supplies from Target. Couldn’t find the cellophane bags, but Bath and Body Works were giving them out with purchases from there, so I used those! Thanks for the printables!!
This was too cute and a HUGE hit for my mother and sister-in-law. I added some homemade sugar scrub and coordinated the jar labels to match your bag tag. Following your lead, I made my jar labels available for download on my blog too. It is the season for giving after all! Thanks so much for sharing!
I never wear tall knee high socks with boots. It is always the no see socks I wear with my sneakers!
Thanks for sharing the tags with us!
Okay so stupid question….these are adorable and I want to make a few. What is extra C on the labels?
Lol, it’s not a C, it’s the “&” sign!
What a wonderful idea! I am doing this for my college roommates this Christmas!!
Wondering what type of paper works best for the tags? What about a premium paper like used for resumes? Or card stock? Card stock seems thick to fold?
Any kind, really. I prefer cardstock for things like this.
I love this idea.I bought some bells last year,like you I thouht they were so pretty.But I didn’t know what to do with them.Thanks to you I can use them this year.I have already made 6 bags. Thanks so much foe the printable and the idea.
Thanks for the share! I’m making my way to Target to get my supplies and surprise my friends for Christmas. Great idea!
I love, love, love, these! I have bought all the supplies but am now having problems downloading the printables! Everytime I click the link it shuts down the internet explorer. Any suggestions?
Julie, I’d just try a different browser. That’s weird!
Thank you so cute!
I am putting mine together right now….thank you soooo much!
This is such a cute, feminine idea for a quick gift!
I saved this for months and just printed the tags. Found the cutest socks at Target and nail poish to match. Thanks for sharing! Best idea EVER!!!
