5 Ideas For...A Christmas Eve Box

We have had Christmas Eve boxes for the last few years now, delivered by a little Elf as a Thank You for being so good (or a reminder that Christmas is getting ever closer and to try and be good so Santa can move you over to the good list!!!)




I know some people go nuts and pop s**t loads in,we try and keep ours simple, they get spoilt enough on Christmas Day! So here are our 5 Ideas to pop inside your Christmas Eve box.

1. Activity books and some new crayons/pens.

When you are under 10 years old Christmas Eve is a long long LONG day, it seems never ending from the minute you wake up! An actvity book will keep them busy at bored times an at times when you just need a few minutes to get something done. You can fin these everywhere, from Poundland, Home Bargains (they have some 69p ones) to more expensive ones. We like this one from Tesco's for just £2.


Tesco Go Create Christmas Activity Book £2

2. A baking activity.

We usually cheat and have a boxed biscuit/cake mix, mainly because Christmas Eve is such a busy day in this house that I don't have the time to weigh all the ingredients out etc etc. Again you can usually find these everywhere, supermarkets, poundshops etc.


Morrisons Make Your Own Gingerbread house £4.99


3. A Christmas DVD.

For that special family time before bed which leads me on to....

4. Christmas mugs/beakers/sippy cups etc.

Obvioulsy no Christmas movie would be complete without  a hot chocolate and what better than a new Christmassy mug to drink it from!

5. Christmassy eat treats!

Chocolate coins? Gingerbread men? Christmassy chocolates? I'm sure you will find something to take your fancy!

Do you have a Christmas Eve box? Do you put anything different inside?
