What’s better than giving a gift that you know the recipient will love? We love gifts that have a bit of a personal touch (like a printable gift tag).
Since time can be of the essence around Christmas and the holidays, it’s also nice if those personal touches can be quick and easy, too!
For this post, we are partnering with our friends at Canon USA to show how you can use the newly updated IVY 2 Mini Photo Printer to easily print out all the photos for your gift giving needs right from the comfort of your own home.
We’ve even include free downloadable templates to get you started!

What can the IVY 2 Mini Photo printer do?
One of the coolest things about the IVY 2 Mini Photo Printer is that it prints onto sticker paper in either a 2″ x 3″ rectangle format or with two 1.3″ wide circle stickers. It’s totally ready to adhere to the gift wrap or gift bag in a flash with no tape or glue needed!
This cute printer comes in blush and white and has an upgraded Bluetooth (and longer lasting charge) so you can keep printing longer!
You can go into the easy-to-use app and choose a photo from your camera roll to create a custom sticker photo whenever you want.
And the app (available on Apple or Google Play) has options to make collages with several photos, plus you can add text/designs on top of your photos.

How do I use the free printable gift tag downloads?

How to use your printable gift tags:
You can print your gift tags, peel off the backing, and add them directly to your present where you can write your names, or …
you can stick your gift tag onto a color corresponding cardstock (cut a little bigger than your tag) and use a hole punch and twine to create a fancy hang tag version.
You can use these printable gift tag ideas any time of the year, but the ease and time saver ability to do it all from your home really comes in handy during the holiday season. Hope these tags end up on some of your gifts this year! xo. Laura
These are so cute, Laura!
