It’s hard to believe that we are a week into December already. Our advent countdown has been in full swing for a week but we are yet to put up our tree. We have just moved so have lots of unpacking and organising to do and I’m hoping that we’ll be sorted out in time for Christmas, so that we can properly enjoy it and have a little rest too.
As I knew our move was imminent and perhaps not the best timing, I planned ahead for presents and preparations for the boys. Although I still have a long way to go with their stocking fillers, I have at least arranged what they will be presented in. Last year I bought the boys some vintage style stockings and my husband personalised them with tags from the North Pole.
They were exactly what I wanted for the them but obviously over the years, the tags would get a little tired and damaged. I hadn’t thought anymore about it until I had to opportunity to try out some sacks from Photo Panda. These were what I always had in mind for the boys and had seen a lot of ‘hessian’ type ones around that looked perfect.
I ordered a santa sack each for the boys, personalised with their names in print (names blanked for privacy) and was excited to see what they would be like. The delivery was extremely quick and when they arrived I was thrilled with the quality. I had been expecting the usual hessian material but these are made of a durable, soft, chenille fabric that I would liken to material used for covering a sofa. We received the large sacks measuring up at 82cm x 71cm. They are plenty roomy enough and come with a ribbon tie to gather the sack together.
I’m so thrilled with their magical sacks that will last them through the years. While Father Christmas is very much real in our house, these are perfect for feeding imaginations that believe in a certain man coming down the chimney, leaving an authentic looking sack all the way from the North Pole. I can’t wait to see their faces on Christmas Day.
Nb. I was provided with two personalised sacks in return for this review. All views and opinions are entirely my own. The names have been blanked out for privacy.
