The girls Christmas eve boxes....

My girls have always got a few little presents on Christmas eve....Even before Christmas eve boxes were cool...They always get some new pj's, chocolate, a DVD and some crafty things to do...I give them these on the afternoon to keep them amused while I am preparing the vegetables for Christmas day....

This year while walking around our local Poundland I saw their Christmas Eve boxes...They are about the size of a shoe box and I thought they would be ideal for our Elf on the shelf to leave filled with goodies on Christmas eve....

The girls of course needed some chocolate and I got them a selection from Tesco. They both have a Lindt Teddy Bear, Kinder Joy Egg, Milk Chocolate Coins and a Cadbury Small Selection Box...

It is a sort of tradition that we all have a bath on Christmas eve so bath bombs are needed and I thought a selection from Lush and their Christmas range would be perfect....Becky has the Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb and the Man In The Moon Bubble Bar and Ellie has the Butterbear bath bomb and The Magic of Christmas reusable bubble bar

I always buy them a couple of DVD's and both of my girls are really into The Simpsons at the moment.....So I got The Simpsons: Christmas with the Simpsons & The Simpsons: Christmas 2 off Amazon for a couple of pounds each...

While I was shopping at Sports Direct I saw their mug cake set for £3.49 which I thought would be perfect for a treat after their tea....They of course will be having hot chocolate too before bed. hehehe

Lastly there is some crafty things I bought from Hobbycraft....A Penguin suncatcher kit & Reindeer pompom hanging decoration kits....They only cost a couple of pound per set and it will keep the girls amused for a little while....

Do your children have Christmas eve boxes? What goes in theirs?


  1. oh your girls are going to be thrilled :) It's not something I've ever done but I have thought about it. I might treat them to some hot chocolate and a sweet treat before bed this year and then hope that they go to sleep quickly so Father Christmas can get on with his job and not take all night. x

  2. Ooooh, sounds good right down to chocolate before bed. #PoCoLo

  3. Hi Kim, we never did Christmas Eve boxes, but we did have a rotine of snuggling, watching a new Christmas film whilst eating goodies and enjoying hot chocolate (the children like hot chocolate). I love the idea of a Christmas box and think it's a wonderful way of making Christmas Eve a little more special. The fab thing is it doesn't have to cost a fortune!


  4. i think i'd probably be doing this for boys if they were still at home, especially the way you do it, cheap and cheerful. i see some people spend a small fortune on theirs #pocolo

  5. Oh you've got some lovely things for the girls Christmas Eve boxes. I love doing our boys boxes too. I normally pop in hot chocolate, treats, a Christmassy bedtime story book and a movie :) x

  6. I don't do Christmas Eve boxes myself as it is too much for me to deal with. But they look fantastic and you got some great deals X #pocolo

  7. They look great fun - I bet they were a hit. Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo
