2019 – the year I succumbed to the American tradition that is the “Christmas Eve Box!”
Prior to this I thought Freya was far too young for one and now at 2.25 years of age, I think she will love it, albeit not really get it still. Today we put up our Christmas tree (yes it’s November but it’s 1 month away so shush!). She loved helping to unravel the beads, and then get them all knotted up again.
So back to the box. Rather than buy a wooden box, I decided to go for one of the absolute steal Home Bargain boxes for £2.99. You can write your child’s name on the lid of the box and personalise it so it’s perfect. For your money, you get a cookie inside and as well as a letter from Santa, a book and …..
I haven’t gone crazy when deciding to fill the box and have merely chosen a few little things to add to it including a set of Frozen PJ’s from Tu which I got in the 25% event and they include some lovely wam Olaf socks to match. I also picked up the Orchard Toys Pigs in Blankets game from Aldi in their recent toy event for less than £4 so we can all play a game as a family on Christmas Eve.
On top of that, I will be giving Freya a Peppa Pig bamboo tumbler and plate to put out for Santa so he can have his Whisky and Mince Pie (yes that’s what Santa will be feasting on in our house ladies and gentleman) which was kindly gifted to us for the big event from GiftGivingAllWrappedUp.
Lastly we will be sending Santa the Peppa Pig Christmas Sack in advance so it makes it easier for him to leave presents at our house. Got to make his job as easy as possible of course! This was also kindly gifted to us and I can’t wait to see her face when she wakes up that morning.
We were also kindly gifted a cute Peppa Pig bauble which has pride of place on our tree now and has completely ruined my colour scheme of whites, silvers and irridescent baubles, but Freya loves it and that’s all that matters.
I can’t wait to see others Christmas Eve boxes if you’ve done one this year so feel free to leave me any blog links in the comments.
