Some people may not admit it, but adults enjoy receiving and opening birthday gifts the same as children. The wrapping paper, the birthday gift labels, and the gift itself all add to an ambience of excitement and vigor. When you’re shopping for that special present for an adult, be sure to customize it is much as possible. The gift should not only represent a person’s character, but the wrapping paper and the labels should also make a statement. Here are a few tips on customizing your adult birthday gift labels.

Use Special Fonts

Using fancy fonts on your adult birthday gift labels can give them the extra flair that will make your friend or loved one feel special. If the person has a very bubbly personality, you can use any type of fun script. Cursive writing also works well on birthday labels, and this could give your gift an elegant appearance.  Always make sure that the font is legible. While your concern is making the gift beautiful, you want your loved one or friend to be able to read it as well.

Customize the Colors

Ensure that you use a label color that matches the wrapping paper, but also says a little something about the person that you’re giving the gift to. People that are spontaneous and lively tend to enjoy bright colors like oranges and reds. When you’re giving a gift to a person with a more laid-back personality, you may want to consider earth tone colored birthday gift labels, or pastels. Customizing them according to the color is also a great way to make sure that your gifts will blend in well with the decorations in the room. This, of course, is provided that you have prior knowledge of the party colors.

Use More Than One

There’s no rule that says you can only use one label on a birthday gift. Add several of them to make your present seem unique from the rest of the bunch. You can use two labels, one with the person’s first name, and one with the last name. You can also use one label for the name, and the other for a nickname or some other fun greeting. Customizing adult birthday gift labels is a fun way to show how much you care, and tap into some of your creative decorating skills.
