What is the purpose of Santa Sacks?

The timeless tradition of Santa Sacks goes as far back in time as the late 1800's when Saint Nicholas, the legendary Santa Clause used to carry around gifts in a large brown sack for those in need.  Back then these gifts were primarily for the small children of poorer families and commonly consisted of oranges, apples and nuts.

The Santa Sack Tradition

The folklore of the Santa Sack has been adapted in time to a more modern version of the tradition. 

From Santa Clause carrying around the presents on his sleigh and dropping them down the chimney, to for the families that don't have a Christmas tree - the kids would leave their pillowcases at the end of their bed for Santa Clause to know where to leave their Gifts on Christmas Eve.

There's nothing quite like the excitement of Christmas morning, when all the gifts have been bought and everyone is eager to open up their Santa Sacks and then celebrate the day with family, friends and lots of festive food.

An Alternative to Wrapping Gifts

As the gift giving industry continues to grow, people are now being more environmentally conscious than ever and adopting sustainable gift giving practices - the brilliant thing about these reusable Keep-sacks is that you don't even need to wrap the gifts, simply place the gifts inside unwrapped!  Did you know that it is estimated Globally that around 4 million tonnes of Christmas wrapping paper goes in to landfill each year?

Do Gifts from Santa Get Wrapped?

It's up to Santa whether or not he wants to wrap certain gifts.  With smaller items such as candy and small toys, these can be placed directly into Christmas Stockings, which can also be personalised with your Child's name on it.   For larger items such as puzzles, games, dolls and books, Santa may want to place them in a Large Santa Sack, however, Santa determines which gifts gets wrapped and which ones don't.
