Do you know there is only 68 more days until Christmas?!!! I know eh! The big day seems to creep up faster each and every year. I try to be prepared but admittedly, sometimes I fall short. Personally, I am a great wrapper of gifts, unlike my hubby and my son who couldn’t wrap a gift to save their lives. I am so glad that I found these Personalized Santa Sacks for a few reasons.
What I love about these Santa Sacks are that they are so durable. They are well made using thick 8oz canvas which is double stitched. They will definitely have a long life if properly cared for. The Santa Sacks are very large too! They measure 19″ x 27″ and have a double drawstring to close the sack.
Why do I love using Santa Sacks?
When the kids were young, they loved waking up Christmas morning and seeing all the presents. What they loved even more was the house rule. They were able to open their stockings only. This kept them occupied until we woke up which worked amazingly well. They were quiet and content which was a blessing, especially if mommy and daddy had their fill of “special” egg nog or other spirited beverages (haha).
As the kids grew older, the stockings became more difficult to fill. Not that we ran out of ideas or things to fill them with but for the fact that the stockings became too small. Also, over time ( only a couple of years – maybe) the stockings would wear and they would need to be replaced. The names would start to disappear as well which would result in bickering Christmas morning as to whose stocking was whose.
I had an epiphany one year and made my own Santa Sacks. This is going back 25 years now.They were not the greatest and only lasted a year but I was on the right track! The Santa Sacks had so much more room to put in the awkward to wrap gifts. You know the ones! The wrapping breaks and when all is said and done it looks like a poorly made patchwork quilt or something that a toddler put together!
Today, I do not have a mantle or anywhere to hang stockings from either, so I love that the Santa Sacks will sit nicely under the tree (or anywhere else I choose to place them).
Our kids live on their own now but come to stay for the Christmas holidays. I find each year that the gifts get less and less as we age so there is no need for rolls and rolls of wrapping paper, name labels, ribbons or bows.
Using a Santa Sack saves so much money, not to mention the environment. Less wrapping paper and pretty decorative accessories means less in the landfill.
Since the sacks can be Personalized. I was given one for myself, hubby, son, my dog and one for the long term care facility that my mom resides in.
Tracker always has something under the tree for her. I have begun filling her Personalized Santa Sack. One of the items is a ball thrower. It’s long and awkward and definitely something I would not want to wrap. It fits amazingly well into the Santa Sack! All the way!
I mentioned that I got a Santa Sack for the long term care facility where my mom resides. Each year, I have filled a paper gift bag that I bring to the Manor. It is filled with generic items for everyone on her floor. There are many residents who go without gifts from family and friends as many or all have either passed away or they are simply forgotten. To see the smile on the residents faces and the sparkle in their eyes is heartwarming.
Each year, I have had to purchase a new gift bag to bring. Now that I have the personalized Santa Sack, I can simply have the nurses store it at the nursing station for me to pick up at a later date.
The Santa Sacks are a bargain and range in price from $19.99 to $22.99 CAD
There are also non-customized Santa Sacks available as well.
