Stuck on You Santa Sack Giveaway

We are very excited to be reviewing some Christmas T-Shirts when they arrive, but until then I thought I would introduce you to some of the fabulous offerings at Stuck on You and host this fabulous competition to win 2 x Santa Sacks (worth £29.99 each).  When it comes to Christmas everyone has different traditions and ways of doing things, some like to store the presents in a sack, some have them wrapped in there, some don’t.  My mum always insisted we had to be up, washed and dressed before we could open as much as one present!!!  For my boys I would quite happily let them open all the presents in their PJ’s but then I love snugly pyjamas!  However you like to do things, you can find something lovely over at the Stuck on You website.

I do love the Christmas Knit Stockings (£29.99), they look very festive, my brother and I made do with my long school socks, so I am pining for never having had something quite this stylish!  It might seem expensive initially but quality products last for many Christmases to come.



If you like your children wearing something special for the day itself, the t-shirts (£16.99) are perfect to get into the spirit of things.

One of my least favourite things about Christmas, is writing Christmas cards (my other pet hate is sprouts!), I feel cramp set in quite early on and lose my Christmas card writing mojo fast!  So I think having a little helping hand, is a good idea for my sanity and help get things off to a flying start.  12 Christmas cards personalised for £9.99 seems a small price to pay!  Now I just need to find a way to hide the sprouts my mum still insists I eat come Christmas day...


To enter the competition please complete the rafflecopter below, the competition will close on the 10th of November, leaving plenty of time for arrival before Christmas.  The winner can personalise them and see the delight on their children's faces with what Father Christmas delivered come Christmas morning!  They really are beautifully designed sacks.

  22. Yes I have started getting ready for Christmas. I have seven children, three of them married with a children so i dont have a choice but to start in the January sales. I dont go totally mad at christmas but it costs a small fortune plus at some time over Christmas and the new year the whole family get together so my food and wine bill is massive. I collect £2 coins so by the end of the year I can relax and spend without worry.

    ReplyDelete
