Christmas Eve Box: Step by Step Tutorial

The latest tradition at Christmas seems to be Christmas Eve Boxes, I think they are a great idea, so they will be an annual tradition in our house.

I’ve put together a step by step guide on what to put in your boxes.

These are only suggestions, so feel free to tweak wherever you feel appropriate and these boxes are based on my children who are two boys aged 2 & 3 and a baby girl aged 3 months.

The part I love best about Christmas Eve Boxes is Pyjamas & Socks! There’s nothing better than waking up on Christmas morning with brand new PJs and Socks on, it just makes opening your presents that much better!

T-shirts! These weren’t in my original plan but are festive cute and extremely cheap from Primark, so why not?!

Activity books from Poundland! Christmas Eve is the big build up before the big day, so something festive to keep them distracted and busy is a great idea!

Books (at the time of purchasing these were 3 for 2 in M&S), why not enjoy a new bedtime story before the big guy drops off their gifts? These aren’t particularly festive books, but they are lovely classic stories that caught my eye when out shopping.

Festive DVDs of their favourites are a great way to keep them entertained and get all excited for Santa’s big visit.

Add in some festive treats like yummy chocolate biscuits to nibble on, popcorn to eat while watching the movie, chocolate gingerbread melts for their hot chocolate, candy canes are a Christmas must and why not add in their name in Chocolate to personalise? (Plus don’t forget a special glass to drink chocolate milk from)

Babies are hard to buy for, but first Christmas gifts are ideal! Add in a bauble, stocking and comforter!

To add some fun throw in some reindeer dust, snowballs (they actually scrunch like real ones), a tin with a letter from Santa, a plate to put out the mince pie & carrot and some reindeer food (oats & glitter).

Put all in a festive box and I added some red straw and bells to give it a little jingle!

Then wah-la! You have Christmas Eve Boxes, display them  or fold them all away…it’s up to you.

I got the boxes from ASDA they were only £3 each at the time of purchase!

I hope this helped and feel free to comment with any extra suggestions that you put in your Christmas Eve Boxes, I love new ideas!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Cards…what do we really do with them once Christmas is over? They go in a drawer, you don’t look through them again and they just sit there gathering dust.

The names I got for the boys are great, they can be used for any occasion, but over the Christmas period it is a great idea for stocking fillers or Christmas Eve Boxes.
