One give back mission that we are beginning this year will be centered around these custom “Santa Sacs”. I ordered beautiful classic sacs from Doodlebells, if you are interested order fast. Malorie has amazing turn around time (especially for such customized and well made items), but orders will fill up quickly and you won’t want to miss out.
The idea behind the sacs is that “Marvin” will bring them early with a letter from Santa which will provide us with directions. The directions are to fill their sac with older toys that they no longer play with or have outgrown. This will help to make room for the new toys that they will receive and give the kids the opportunity to decide what they can give up. They will then leave the filled Sacs out for “Marvin” to return to Santa. Santa will repair and clean up all of the toys to give to boys and girls who would like to have them this year. This way, removing toys from their collections has a purpose. I will schedule a “pick up please” appointment to have the toys taken away as a donation to those who would like and enjoy them (of course these toys are still in good shape and hopefully will bring joy to other little boys and girls).
I was looking for sacs that looked like they would belong to the man himself. I wanted them to be classic red and white, with “fur” trim, and to be personalized for each of my children. I used their monograms to make it more timeless. Malorie took my request and ran with it. She also had some pretty awesome ideas for other bags if you are looking for something more customized. Her abilities like her imagination knows no bounds. The results are shown below.
The quality of these bags is beyond compare. Much nicer than their mass produced counterparts. Having them made in a classic design means that they will be able to be used as the kids grow up and they won’t be too childish for quite some time.
I am so excited to debut them this year there is no doubt in my mind that these bags will be another magical reminder of the true spirit of Christmas.
