15 Great Christmas Tag Ideas and Free Printables

Christmas is right around the corner.  I am trying so hard to get things together but I will say this year I feel like I need another two weeks to catch up.  I have gifts hidden all over the house and I need to get some wrapping done.  But in my 10,000 things to do before Christmas, I need to print out some Christmas tags or make some.  I found these 15 adorable tags for you while I was searching for some ideas.  Some are ideas for you, others are free printables.  I hope you enjoy and get some wonderful ideas from these!

The North Pole Experience

So our sneaky little Elf, "Peppermint" surprised us on Sunday morning with Tickets to the North Polar Experience up in Flagstaff, Arizona.  If you are anywhere close enough for driving, you need to take your kiddos to this place.  Basically you get to go up to the North Pole and see Santa's Workshop.  My kids were beyond excited and we were so excited to see them enjoy it.
We just drove up for an overnight stay.  We hung out in Flagstaff for a little bit and then loaded the trolley to move through the portal to the North Pole.
There was a little snow up there which was really nice for our kids.  In Phoenix we never see snow but it's nice that we can drive 2 1/2 hours to see it.  Here are some of our pictures from our little adventure!

We are getting ready to load on to the trolley!

We have arrived to the North Pole.  You would be so amazed at the details they have put into this place!  It's really stunning!

 Here is Santa's workbench

Reagan and Hunter got to dress some stuffed animals and put together some toys.

We got to go in the wrapping room where all the gifts are wrapped and shipped out on the belt.

Next came "snowman soup", aka Hot Chocolate and cookies with Mrs. Claus in her bakery.

Another stop before we met the big guy- Elf University to become an honorary elf!

In the mail room the kids got to write letters to Santa.  There were a ton of pieces in there just like this that were so perfect.

And then I looked over and saw this beautiful book and felt so proud that Santa must be a believer in Jesus too!  Makes my heart melt :)

And then we finally met him!!  I think it was the real one too! :)

Our final day, we of course took the kiddos to the snow and let them get wild!
