Christmas is one of my favorite holidays for so many reasons, one of them being because of how nostalgic it is. Two years ago I was walking to my car from a zen class I took and as I stepped foot in the middle of the road, snow was pouring down on and around me and it was completely quiet. I felt like I was in a snow globe, just like being a little girl playing under the street light in the middle of winter! Now, I call these my snowglobe moments, moments that will stay with me forever.
The beauty of Christmas is family and being with loved ones. It’s a time of giving and cherishing the time you have with the ones you love. A time of getting quiet and truly enjoying being present.
Every Christmas since I was young, I would make sugar cookies decorated with colored sprinkles or I would do something really fun with my gifts. For the past few years I haven’t done either and since moving away from my family this year, I’m definitely feeling all those traditions drift even farther away. Mark and I will be having Christmas with my two aunts and her boyfriend and I couldn’t be more excited! I wanted to do something fun with my gifts and since it’s been such a cosmic year (the Fierce Forward Limitless Bracelet Collection, did you know a crescent moon means to go forth?), I made these cosmic compliment gift tags!
In this downloadable pdf file, you will find 9 gift tags with 9 cosmic compliments for the ones you love! As I began thinking about what each one would say, the first one that I was inspired by was the phrase, I love you to the moon and back. My gramps used to say that to me and when I think back to those moments I had with him, I remember how special he always made me feel…how loved. From this one phrase, I created more fun ones that are both complimentary and cosmic!
Just download the pdf file at the end of this post, print on white or brown cardstock, carefully cut into tags (I used a metal ruler and a box knife), punch a hole on the top and you are good to go! You can even write on the back of them.

I think these would be beautiful on top of brown wrapped paper with rafia tie like pictured! Half the fun of giving a gift is creating an experience and moving forward, I want to begin a new tradition of doing a new theme each year. So for this year, it’s a cosmic compliment gift year! Enjoy and if you love these, comment below what you love most about Christmas and if you’ll be using these with me this year.
