The excitement is building and we are all, no doubt, getting ready for festive times ahead. One family tradition which becomes more and more popular is the Christmas Eve box. In our house, Santa delivers it on Christmas morning as he whizzes through the sky on his way to Australia. Here are some ideas to make the final day before Christmas jolly and bright.
1. Kids Pyjamas by Sleepy Doe – these pyjamas are just gorgeous. The ski and floral prints make them suitable for babies, children and adults alike (there are designs for all should you want to make it a family affair!).
2. North Pole Telegram by Kate’s Creative Space – print this out on card and have it with the Christmas Eve box to let the children know Santa is on his way!
3. Hot Chocolate Spoon Stirrers by Waitrose – it must be North Pole law that a hot chocolate must be consumed on Christmas Eve?
4. Hot Chocolate Marshmallow Toppers from The Snowman – make the Christmas Eve hot chocolates really indulgent with these cure marshmallow toppers.
5. Hamper by Polar Post – this is the one we use year after year. Sadly it seems to be out of stock (they get more in every year so look out for next year!). Hobbycraft however, have some alternatives here.
6. Merry’s Stowaway Mice at Polar Post – echoing the dreams of Clara in The Nutcracker, these chocolate mice will be a welcome surprise.
7. Festive Reindeer Surprise Balls by Meri Meri – a fun little treat to open up before the big day.
8. The Magic Christmas Tree by Moulin Roty – this little tree grow crystals to look like a mini Christmas tree ready to be decorated. A sweet activity for the little ones.
9. Snowman Play Dough Kit by Joyful Busy Kits – do you wanna build a snowman? If the snow is lacking on Christmas Eve, then children can busy themselves with this little set.
10. Santa Claus with Reindeer by Nanoblock – for older kids, this Nanoblock set will keep them busy.
11. Christmas Book by Horrible Histories – for older children, this book is sure to entertain.
12. Twas The Night Before Christmas Story and Wind Up Music Book by Magic Cat Publishing – this book is simply stunning. The perfect bedtime story with an enchanting musical element.
