The Christmas Santa sack is like a giant treasure chest full of exciting stories and memories waiting to be opened each holiday season. Although the tradition is specific to each family, the intention is always the same - an invitation to focus on connection, gratitude, joy... and Christmas magic.

This favorite family tradition at Christmas stretches the moments of magic and playfulness, and makes the good of childhood last just a little bit longer. This custom keepsake is a modern heirloom that will fill your heart and home with memories for many years to come.

  1. First, design the perfect Santa sack for each of your loved ones (yourself included!). Customize the bag color, the font style, and of course, the name or initial that adorns it.

  2. Once ordered, your request is flown to the North Pole for Santa to cut and sew. Once the Santa sack is stitched, it is dusted with magic, folded, and shipped in plain packaging so as to not tip off overly excited children!

  3. Decide how the Santa sack should be revealed. Keep it out of sight until then! Consider a scavenger hunt on Thanksgiving night, include it as part of your Advent calendar activities, or place it inside a Christmas Eve Gift Bag. If this is your first year (and you've never introduced the Santa sack tradition before), let your imagination run wild! Perhaps the North Pole is rewarding your little one for being Exceedingly Good this year? There are no wrong origin stories.

  4. Next, encourage your little one to write a letter to Santa Claus. This the best way to note the all-important Christmas wishlist and the perfect opportunity to tell the jolly old man where he can expect to find the Santa sack on Christmas Eve night.

  5. Children set out Santa sacks before going to bed on Christmas Eve. Where they are placed is up to them! No fireplace? No problem. Favorite spots include under the tree, by the front door, at the foot of the stairs. Any place full of magic and happy feelings is perfect.

  6. In the morning, everyone wakes to the discovery that the empty bag has *magically* grown in size, stuffed with presents from Santa himself! Best of all? No gift wrap, no tissue paper and no ribbons to bag up!

  7. When time to pack away the Christmas decorations, fold the Santa sacks and put them in a very safe hiding place to be enjoyed again next year!
