As sad as it sounds I am thinking ahead to my Christmas Eve box. It will be my lo 2nd Christmas but the first Christmas where we have 2 wages coming in so am planning to surprise dh with a Christmas box for the whole family. Am not planning on it being massive....pjs for all, maybe some chocs to share on Christmas Eve, book for ds. Any other ideas? I want to get it planned so I can start buying the bits for it and hiding away.

I did a Christmas eve film night, so PJs, classic Christmas film, popcorn.

Could pop in some hot chocolate with nice big mugs, marshmallows, candy canes.

A nice pop up picture book of the night before christmas .

It was lovely all snuggled up - winter is definatley my season!!

Yes definitely a new DVD smile

We don't do a box as such but mine always get a new decoration for the tree on Christmas eve.

Last year I put in new PJ'S for all. Cookie making kit for santa, a family dvd and hot chocolate and Christmas mugs. This year I will do the same but add in tickets to see Cinderella at the theatre that afternoon and Christmas jumpers. DD loved the fact that it was a sharing present for everyone.

We always watch polar express on Christmas Eve, tradition grin.

Christmas Eve hampers are from the EOTS, he leaves it behind for them. They contain:
New pjs. Last year I got them all matching Little Bird ones. This year I'm thinking checked white company ones.
Slippers. Wanting the Finlay fox ones this year.
Socks
Chocolate coins
Teddy bear- already got it from wauwaa, had a 50% off voucher code shock
They each have a Belle and Boo tin and I fill it with marshmallows to put on top of their hot chocolate and cream which we drink whilst watching the movie grin.

Christmas Eve is my favourite part of Christmas.
