It’s not too late to do a quick Christmas Eve Box if you want to. It doesn’t have to be expensive and can be done quickly, easily and last minute! Here are a few ideas!
1. The Box
There are some lovely Christmas Eve boxes around but if you have decided to do this last minute, a shoe box wrapped in wrapping paper will suffice. (perhaps raid the crafting stuff for some stickers and glitter?!
2. Christmas Movie
Some fab Christmas films listed here. If you don’t have a suitable DVD up your sleeve, why not check out our Christmas TV guide here
3. Christmas Story
Still time to pop to the library to take out a book….if you don’t want to buy one.
4. Hot Chocolate
Those chocolate stirrers are fab and the kids love them. Perhaps add some squirty cream and some marshmallows… You could include a new mug as well if you wish.
5. Reindeer Food
Quick to make with porridge oats and bird food. Then maybe add some grass and some leaves (can cut out into nice shapes) for some colour. Stir away from the glitter as it’s not animal and bird friendly.
6. Some extra marshmallows to enjoy with the hot chocolate!
Gingerbread is a Christmas essential (in our eyes anyway) so pop in a festive biscuit for your little ones to enjoy, Any bakers will be able to help you here!
Everyone loves new PJs for Christmas! Or maybe a onesie!
I’m not a slipper wearer, more a hole in sock type of person but the kids seem to like them. Loads of cheap novelty ones in supermarkets, Boyes, Yorkshire Clothing etc.
10. Novelty toothbrush to encourage some teeth brushing over Christmas…
