Santa Sack Tradition

Does your family use Santa Sacks?  This tradition is a great way to use reusable drawstring gift sacks that will be cherished by your children each year when getting them out in preparation for Santa's visit!

These sacks are great because they are not only Eco friendly but you will not stay up late Christmas Eve wrapping presents.  Simply place unwrapped gifts in the Sack and place under the tree on Christmas Eve.  Each child can have their own individual sack.

To rollout this tradition, simply place a package on your doorstep from Santa's elves that included the sack and a note inside explaning that the sacks are from Santa and that each child is to leave them under the tree (or at the foot of their bed) on Christmas Eve.  When Santa visits on Christmas Eve, he will deliver their toys into their own Santa Sack.  This will also encourage us to reduce gift wrap waste.

Caramel pull-apart biscuits

Yarah Designs came across this irresistible recipe on Eat Drink Pretty.  This is such a treat and great for the holidays!

Caramel pull-apart biscuits
  • 2 tubes Pillsbury biscuits (20 total biscuits)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously grease a bundt cake pan. In a small saucepan, heat the butter, water and brown sugar until melted.

Separate the biscuits and cut each into four pieces. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl. Dredge the biscuit pieces in the cinnamon sugar mixture and then put the biscuits into the bundt pan, spread around evenly. Pour the caramel mixture (the butter, water and brown sugar) over the biscuits.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 3 minutes then invert onto a serving plate
