50 Things to put in a Christmas Eve Box

Can you believe it’s less than two weeks until Christmas Eve already? A couple of years ago, we started a new Christmas tradition and started doing a Christmas Eve box. I love this tradition simply because it is something I would have loved so much myself as a little girl. I remember going to bed on Christmas day in my new pyjamas and thinking that it would have been nice to go to sleep in new pyjamas on Christmas Eve so that I looked nice for Santa.

Also, Christmas Eve can be such an exciting day for children, they’re often bouncing off the walls and it’s hard to contain their excitement in anticipation of the big man in red coming. A Christmas eve box makes for a great distraction. It’s nice to have a something to open early and it’s a great way to give them some new things to entertain them, keep them busy and get the excitement a bit under control.
