This year we’re celebrating Thanksgiving a bit differently. Since the usual suspects will all be out of town for the holiday weekend, I hosted “Fakesgiving” dinner this last week. I planned a classic meal, complete with fall flowers, turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and pumpkin pie.
As is my nature, I made far more food than necessary. From the appetizer trays to dessert, I had leftovers in abundance. Fortunately, I know myself well enough to have stocked up on containers and tags for all the leftovers.
I like to keep a stock of inexpensive takeout containers throughout the holidays that can be sent home with guests. It’s easy to find disposable containers or tupperware at your local dollar store or online for an average less than 50 cents a piece. Looking for something easy to use? Check out any of these inexpensive to go boxes.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Gift Tag
I know it’s entirely possible to send leftovers home without any sort of tag at all, but it’s a great personal touch. I use my gift tags to not only label the food, provide storage and heating instructions and thank guests for coming – a great all in one!
To recreate this project, you will need:
Thanksgiving Leftovers Print + Cut File
Color Printer (I use this one.)
White Coated Cardstock (I use this brand.)
Paper Trimmer (I use this one.)
Hole Punch (This one is killer.)
Baker’s Twine or Orange Washi Tape
To Go Containers
Download the Thanksgiving leftovers gift tag print and cut file to your computer. Open the PDF file and send it to your color printer or take it to the local print shop.
There are six gift tags on each sheet. I like to print two to three gift tags per household, depending on the size of my leftover containers.
Trim the gift tags up. My Fiskars trimmer is the best. It’s easy to line everything up and make the perfect cut. I love gift tags, so a precision cut is super important here!
Once the tags are cut attach them to the container with a bit of twine or washi tape.
Let’s be honest a Thankgsiving leftover gift tag isn’t absolutely necessary, but this simple-to-prepare detail really completes a great dinner.
