Since the girls were born Christmas has become one of my most favourite times of the year! I was never overly big on it until they came along and now my joy comes totally from seeing their excitement leading up to the big day!
As I type it’s 10am Bella is spinning around the lounge still in her pj’s (as you should be in the holidays) singing carols and she just fell into the tree – tree is now slightly ruined but it gave us all a bloody good laugh.
Tomorrow is Christmas eve and I am sure excitement levels will be reaching their height in everybody’s households. A couple of years ago I started doing the girls a little christmas eve box; when they were younger it was a good way to let them know christmas was just one more sleep away. Now they are older it has just stuck as our little christmas tradition.
I don’t go mad and spend a fortune it’s something inexpensive, quick and easy for me to put together. Our christmas eve box is all about encouraging us to spend quality time together. So here’s whats inside..
A Santa puzzle, Wentworth wooden puzzles are lovely we have quite a few now I find they’re great quality. I am sure this one will find it’s way into many Christmas eve boxes to come, thats ehe thing with a christmas eve box it doesn’t necessarily need to be full of new products just seasonal things that will bring you together to get you in the christmasy spirit.
I spotted these Olaf mugs in Sainsbury’s perfect for a cheeky little hot chocolate.
This plate was actually a gift to the girls from a close friend of mine; again perfect to add in the box year on year to leave santa and his reindeer a treat!
Also in there we have a sticker book each – santa’s busy night. As well as a personalised Santa is coming to town book for me to read the girls before bed.
Lastly some new cosy pj’s, they all have matching because twinning it winning – I picked them up a few weeks back in primark and some tasty treats – popcorn and Kinder snowmen!
I tend to give the girls the box in the evening after dinner so we can just cosy up pop a film on and enjoy the treats, it gets them so excited. I can’t wait to see their little faces tomorrow!
Do you do a christmas eve box? What do you put into yours?
