Saddleback Bags make the ultimate gifts. These bags can make even the Scroogiest McScrooge giggle like a little boy on Christmas morning. Instead of getting a bunch of useless doodads from your folks and relatives this year, get them to all go in on a bag for you. Or ask for a Saddleback gift certificate to get you at least part of the way there. Hey, borrow against next year’s gifts if needs be!

Or, you can try winning a briefcase in our giveaway.

The Prize

A briefcase from the Saddleback Leather Company. This incomparable briefcase is made with 100% thick full grain boot leather and pigskin lining and is crafted with industrial marine-grade thread and rivets at all the stress points. It converts quickly into a backpack for your travels. There are no breakable parts, e.g. zippers, snaps, or buttons, and the bag comes with an iron-clad 100-year warranty. This is truly the last briefcase you’ll ever need.

The size and color of the bag is up to you.

A $568-$664 value.

How do you like them fruitcakes?

How to Enter

1. Visit the Saddleback Leather Company website and pick out which size and color briefcase that you would like if you win. The bag will come with the pigskin lining.

2. Share your selection with us in the comments section. You don’t have to post the link-just a description. (Posting the link may cause your comment to be filtered as spam).

Please be patient if your comment doesn’t show up right away! We moderate all comments, so your comment will not show up immediately. But it went through….so don’t post multiple comments!

If you’re an email subscriber and want to enter the contest, do not reply to the email to make your entry! You must click on the comment link here in the email and leave a comment under the post to enter.

A winner will be drawn randomly from the entries. The deadline for entry into the giveaway is Wednesday, December 19, 2012 at 12:00 PM CST. This post will be updated within 24 hours of the deadline with the winner’s name.

Good luck!

**Update** One comment was randomly drawn from the over 7,000 who entered. The winner is Matt McCoy of Fort Worth, Texas. Matt selected the large, chestnut briefcase. It’s the one I have — a real beauty. Congrats Matt, I’m sure you’ll enjoy your bag…and so will your grandkids.

 Thanks for entering everyone and Merry Christmas!
