Mabel’s Labels to Mark Your Stuff [Giveaway!]

I prefer Mabel’s Labels to any other way of labeling my kids’ stuff for school, sleepovers, camp, or whatever they attend where their stuff can get left behind. I like them better than any other brand, better than permanent marker, better than a label-maker. Why?

Mabel’s Labels are cute, and they don’t come off. The end.


You can stick Mabel’s Labels in shoes, on fabric, lunch boxes made of fabric, pencil cases, notebooks, you name it. They just won’t come off, not even in the wash!

There are many different designs you can choose from. I love the cute little rocket logos and smiley faces, and the pretty color palettes. I have boys, so I stick with boy-type colors, and now that they are getting a little older (middle school here we come!), this time I chose a muted color scheme with no cute little-kid logo. I have left over rockets and skull and bones, though.

And bonus for me, my initials are the same as one of my sons, so I can use the initial logos we bought a few years ago, along with these new last-name-only ones that Mabel just sent to me, for my own stuff or my husband’s stuff. Great for luggage and sports equipment for the whole family.


This year’s selection is the Middle School Label Pack. It includes (in photo above, clockwise from top right) 40 mini name stickers, 2 teeny tags, 50 tag mates, and 16 shoe labels (round). The labels come in a nice, compact folio that you can stick in your family command center (aka the junk drawer) and it takes up barely any room, but it’s at the ready every time something threatens to go out the door unlabeled. I have been known to chase down a child with a label in my hand, eager to slap it on and mark his possession.

  1. I love labels!

  2. I’ve never labeled anything in my life.
    Maybe I need to start now…


  3. I need these!!! We just lost my favorite orange towel at camp today. Sigh…

  4. I have a kid who could definitely use these. (I mean definitely!) 🙂

  5. Such cute label ideas.

  6. Angela Mullen says:

    My kids totally need these!

  7. This is genius! My boys leave everything behind and since stuff all looks the same, this would be great to figure out what is theirs. I wonder if it’ll work on balls?

    • Rina, yes, it will totally work on balls! I suggest the smallest label depending on the ball (footballs are easier because they have flatter stretches). I’m telling you – these babies do NOT come off!

  8. Definitely need with a preschooler and first grader!

  9. These labels are awesome. I can think of a million things to use them on.
