A friend of mine asked me to create a “Mele Kalikimaka” gift tag with some bright tropical colors. She planned on leaving fresh pineapples on few of her neighbor’s doorsteps and wanted a cute gift tag to dress it up. What a simple – sweet – and best of all easy gift idea! I found a bit of Hawaiian inspiration and designed these tags for her.
The tags read: Mele Kalikimaka – Hawaii’s way of saying Merry Christmas to you .🖤 I thought they turned out pretty cute and wanted to make these available to you too. If you’re on our mailing list (you can sign up below) you can download these tags for free. There’s room to add your name or other text too – you can personalize however you like.
There are four to a sheet – and an optional color coordinated backer is included. All you need is a home printer, nice paper (card stock quality is best), scissors, a hole punch, ribbon or twine and a cute sweet gift. These tropical colored tags will pop on your home made treats such as cookies, pies, gingerbread men, candy – or even a bottle of wine.
Merry Christmas – Mele Kalikimaka!
Here’s a little insight on the inspiration for the tags – a lovely cobalt blue ocean, a single white plumeria on a secluded beach and a beautiful tropical sunset with swirly soft pinks, blues and cream. (Winter in Colorado is a just a tad bit different than Hawaii!) While some dream of a white Christmas, it’s also nice to dream about this tropical paradise . Mele Kalikimaka to all!
