If you're looking for a unique way to label gifts, try using a pipe cleaner! In a recent issue of my Martha Stewart magazine, she used pipe cleaners to make place cards. This is really the same, but I attached it to a gift bag.
All you have to do it bend the pipe cleaner into the name of the gift recipient. Or, you could bend them into words like love, thanks, congrats, etc. It is a really easy way to add some flair to an otherwise plain gift bag. There really is no limit to the length either as you can easily twist two pipe cleaners.
I did this for my friend Evan's birthday, and it took all of two minutes and two pipe cleaners.
