In the LW household we have numerous traditions when it comes to Christmas. Today's post is sharing a slight "upgrade" to one we've had for two decades. Christmas morning in the LW household consists of opening our stocking's upstairs. We're still holding onto the large red stockings my parents most likely regret buying all those years ago. Once we've pulled out everything from our stockings we head on downstairs in our PJ's to be greeted with our actual presents in the front room. For as long as we can remember we have the majority of our gifts from our parents (and of course Saint Nick back then) in large festive sacks. Two burgundy hessian sacks featuring the last remains of felt Santa 'faces' sit around the tree and will do until they can no longer hold gifts. I love getting them down from the loft, the "christmas scent" that follows them around, hearing the rustle and crinkle of my parents struggling to creep down the stairs Christmas Eve...even as adults the gifts don't seem to lessen.

Now you've had a little LW Christmas family history there, I've a new addition for this years festivities from Lime Lace - an inspirational boutique store offering eclectic home accessories and gifts to customers wanting to create the personalised home environment. A much more unique store compared to my usual sites I spend waste all my spare time on. With various items to pick over I ended up selecting the wonderful Personalised Hessian Christmas Sack* which retails for £20. Designed and Hand Printed in the UK, this hessian Christmas sack features top quality hessian material, drawstring closure and the adorable mail bag design as well as enough space for up to 18 characters of personalisation. Your personalised text will feature on the centre of the design in red capitals. I'm really impressed with the quality of the sack and printing, there's no need to worry about it breaking or text rubbing off. This is by superior to any others on the market. Once you see the smile on the recipients face on Christmas morning this fabulous vintage sack will soon become part of every Christmas celebration. Sizing of the sack is perfect at 80 cm by 50 cm, fitting even the largest of Christmas present piles.

Not wanting Dan to be left out with my rather snazzy new personalised sack on Christmas morning I decided to personalise it for Harry....yep my little four legged chap who was an absolute cutie on his first Christmas last year. You may think I'm mad? He'll look after it. I'm quite aware of being a crazy puppy owner but this little guy loves to shove his head into the hessian and canvas shopping bags. Each week the only way to put away the food shop is to let him have one to sniff, lick and run about the house with. We spoil our little guy on Christmas, this year his gifts are pretty large soft toys and won't fit in the little stocking he loved pulling his gifts from. It's also going to make for a great decoration in the run up to Christmas as well as something to pack your decorations away in after. What do you think? Do you also have this little tradition in your family? It's definitely something I'd carry on if I ever have children. Their own personal sack from the North Pole!? Who wouldn't want one. Lucy xx
