6 of our favorite self-launch gift tags & wrapping paper

Written by Christina Loff

There’s no doubt that adding a well-designed gift tag and beautiful wrapping paper to a present elevates it to the next level. Minted has always been a destination for quality holiday cards and decor, and now that artists with Stores can self-launch products, it’s really exciting to see what they’ve been designing for the holiday season.

We wanted to take a moment to call out some of the great work we’re seeing, so we’ve rounded up some self-launched seasonal gift tags and wrapping paper.

Lisa Travis has been hard at work designing beautiful wrapping paper and gift tags. We love the range of designs she’s self-launched, from pine cones to snowflakes, all perfect for any gift-giving occasion, whether you’re religious or agnostic. Featured above is her Rustic Menorah Gift Card, and she also designed matching wrapping paper. Check out her Store for her full holiday collection.
Shannon Chen of Four Wet Feet self-launched these autumnal gift tags. How sweet would these be attached to a bottle of wine you’re taking to Thanksgiving dinner? These mini cards get us in the mood for fall in a big way.
The Antler Holiday gift tags from Swedish designer Johanna Phillips Huuva are a playful addition to any present. Want more antler art from Johanna? Check out her print Mr Dear, which makes for a great gift for a friend.
Laura Bolter has been busy designing for the holidays. We love the pops of red in her festive Flourished Berries and Pine Wrapping Paper. Check out all of Laura’s holiday designs in her Store right here.
We’re head over heels for this cheerful pattern from Sara Heilwagen of Noah & Olivia. This wrapping paper was inspired by her Shine Bright Burst holiday card, which we also adore. No need to limit this fun paper to the holidays—this is one design that works for any occasion.
We appreciate the subtle nod to the holidays Kristen Magee’s Snowball Wrapping Paper presents. If you’re feeling more festive, go for the red or green variations.

What are you busy designing for the season? We know from our Minted Merchandising experts that red is king around the holidays, but what other color palettes are inspiring you? Share with us in Comments below.
