hi
my DC are the right age to appreciate Christmas this year IMO - they are four - so I want to do a big thing

I would like to get them the advent boxes or pouches that you put little items in - does anyone know what I mean and where I can get two?

thanks

or any other advent ideas that done involve chocolate?

also I want to get them personalised stockings - can anyone recommend any?

Would absolutely recommend either Lego or Playmobil advent calendars. Can get backdated ones online, they are worth the money for how long our kids played with each new item as it was brought out. They must have played with those sets for about two hours a day on and off. Then the stuff goes into the Playmobil/Lego boxes and gets played with through the year grin

They are fab! Don't pay too much for them though. John Lewis are selling some cheaper at the minute grin

I was just looking on Lakeland for advent calendars.

Also some at Hobbycraft.

Also try amazon and ebay.
