Home Made Christmas Bauble Tag with Lucky Silver 3

Price: 3.00 GBP
A reminder of A Tradition from Christmas Past. This 'Lucky' Christmas Bauble comes complete with a Genuine Silver 3d (pence) coin. It was and in some households, still is, a tradition to hide a silver coin inside the Christmas pudding. The lucky finder was said to look forward to a year of wealth and happiness. Each bauble comes with a self adhesive tag to transform it from a bauble to a tag for that special present. Once the recipient has opened the present the tag can then be hung on the tree and removed after Christmas as a keepsake.
