Three lucky sixpences, traditionally used to put in your Christmas pudding.
Great as stocking fillers, teachers gifts, to hang off the tree or give away.
I loved the Christmas pudding experiences when I was a little girl - especially all those Victorian traditions; putting holly on the top, flaming the brandy and of course the sixpence - would I be the lucky one to get the sixpence in my bowl, bringing me luck all year ?..... Christmas pud without the lucky sixpence just wouldn't be Christmas for me.
Traditionally, the sixpence was added to the mixture while making (on "stir up Sunday", the Sunday before advent). Nowadays, mum buys the pud and slides the sixpence in the bottom as she is about to serve it.
Makes a unique gift for teachers.
I also like hanging these off my tree - the lovely pouches set off nicely by the intense green of the tree.
You get three sixpences in a pack, each in its own pouch so you could even give a couple away as lucky Christmas talismans.
Another Victorian tradition is for a bride to put a sixpence in her left shoe as a good luck charm to bring wealth and happiness to the marriage. Traditionally given by the brides parents.
Come in your choice of gold or claret coloured organza pouches.
A real, old sixpence.
Coin is 2 cm diameter.
