Santa’s Sack

santa-sacks-5

Ever since I was a little girl, Santa would bring a few unwrapped gifts each year. Walking downstairs on Christmas morning to see what he left for me underneath the tree was one of the highlights of the holiday season. What would have made that experience just a bit more special for me would have been a little mystery! One year Santa had a little extra time on his hands, and he wrapped our presents, and I loved it. Guessing at what was inside made for an interesting morning that year. Had gift sacks been popular then, I think this would have made Santa’s job a little bit easier, and now that I’m a mom, I know Santa appreciates an easier task! Today, gift sacks that us crafters refer to as “Santa Sacks” are all the rage for helping Santa “wrap” presents. Nearly every crafter has tried their hand at creating them, and they can be found in the holiday décor sections in many retail stores. They are popular because they make for a truly unique family tradition that can last for years. If you are new to the crafting world and have not yet encountered them, they are essentially an oversized canvas, cotton, or burlap sack or laundry bag that are typically reusable year after year. The message on the sack may say something like “Overnight Delivery for Austin, to arrive on December 25.” Santa adds his presents to the sack and leaves it under the tree (or by the fireplace, foot of a child’s bed, etc)
