Photo gift tags help kids connect the gift with the giver

Tracy's smart gift-labeling hack:

In our family, a lot of gifts get exchanged where my daughter is the "giver". Many of these gifts go to other young children (the cousin gift exchange, classroom gift exchange, etc.). We use those "mini petite" pictures you get with many of the in-studio photo packages as gift tags. This helps the recipient recognize the gift giver. (It also makes me feel like we're not letting those useless little pictures go to waste :)
