Surprising people with unexpected gifts is one of my favorite things! It doesn’t have to be something big, but a little thoughtful gift can make people feel so special and can turn their whole day around.

Color-themed gifts are one of my favorite kinds of gifts to put together. They’re so much fun to shop for, they work for all ages and budget sizes, and they’re great for special events, or just because!

If you like this blue themed gift basket and matching tag, you should also check out my other color-themed gift baskets! I have a pink gift basket, a yellow gift basket, and a teal gift basket, and they all have matching free printable tags too!

    When you print out the tags, they will look like this. They print four-to-a-page so you can make multiple gifts for multiple people, or you can have an extra couple of tags just in case you make a mistake.

    Pro Tip: Print these tags on cardstock paper for the best results. If you print on regular paper, they will be flimsy and tear easily when attached to your gift.

    Step 3: Gather your all blue gift basket items.

    Once you’ve got your blue basket, blue paper shred, and all your blue gift ideas, it’s time to put them together into a blue gift basket!

    Each basket will be different, so rearrange the items until you like the way they’re presented. A good rule of thumb is to put the tallest items in the back, and the smaller shorter ones up front.

    Paper shred makes a great basket filler because you can kind of press items down in the paper to keep them from moving around too much.

    Step 4: Cut out and attach the tags.

    The blue gift tags really tie this gift together! You can snag them to print for free above.

    Use a sharp pair of scissors and cut them out. Punch a hole in the corner of the tag, and run a ribbon through it to attach it to your gift basket.
