The night before Christmas is often filled with anticipation, excitement and all too often cries of “Can we open just one present pleeeeeese….”
Christmas eve boxes are fast becoming the new tradition at Christmas. A personalised box filled with treats and goodies for the kids. It can be the perfect way to keep the little (and not so little) ones entertained on Christmas eve while you get on with the last minute jobs, leaving you time in the evening to all snuggle up on the sofa, relax and watch a festive family movie. Perfect.
But, what do you put in your Christmas eve box? We’ve come up with 10 top ideas the kids will love, and you’ll love even more…
- A festive cuddly toy
Perfect for little ones as an extra snuggly friend to share the festivities with.
- A Christmas book
“Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse” A festive book at bed time is perfect for calming their little minds. We just love ‘The Night Before Christmas’, a great childhood memory for us and a new memories in the making for them.
- Festive PJ’s
Of course it’s lovely to snuggle up in soft fresh jammies after a warm bath, but brand new festive pyjamas means great Christmas morning photos of the kids opening their stockings too! There’ll be no old grey nightwear getting in on our family photos!
- A Christmas Cookie set
Keep the kids entertained with a festive cookie set. They can spend an hour on Christmas eve making Santa a special treat to go with his evening tipple and Rudolph’s carrot.
- A little game
Keep the kids occupied with a new mini game. We love old fashioned games like Tiddly Winks. It’s harder than it looks and keeps them entertained for hours!
- A festive film
Either snuggle up together as a family in the evening or keep the kids entertained and out of your hair for a hour or so with a favourite festive movie.
- A new Christmas decoration for the tree
Create a new tradition by buying a new Christmas decoration each year for the kids. They will love to look back at their own collection over the years.
- Hot Chocolate and festive mug
Hot chocolate on a cold winters night, curled up watching the festive movie is what Christmas eve is all about.
- Sweets and treats
Well, it is Christmas after all!
- And finally, magic reindeer food
Sprinkle on the lawn at night the moon will make it sparkle bright. As Santa’s reindeer fly and roam this will guide them to your home! Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas if Santa’s reindeer couldn’t find your house. Magic Reindeer food is an absolute must, and it’s so simple to make – click here to find out how.
The perfect Christmas eve treat, Christmas eve boxes are the new tradition everyone will love. Add a little extra joy this year, and keep it personal.
