The Elf on the shelf is going to bring a hamper for DD who is 8 on xmas eve. Any ideas what to put in it? I thought about doing a theme like frozen? Ive thought of pjs and maybe a dress for xmas day. What do you put in yours?

I did

Onsie from primark - they've got a MASSIVE frozen thing on too now

Xmas film - basically my fave

A bauble to put on the tree

Hot choc, whippy cream n marshmallows

Cookies and we iced them

That's it

For you, how about an ice crusher? You could have Frozen mocktails then (urs with vodka!) this was cheap on

I don't do a big fancy hamper from the elves or anything like that, I just let mine open a christmas eve gift that contains a bathbomb, new PJs, hot chocolate/marshmallows and a Christmas story.

We are doing christmas pj's, bath bomb and hot choc ( choc on a stick ),

Marne are the choc sticks/stirrers better than powdered stuff?

Did it for the first time last year with ds 2 and a half and we did

Christmas film
Hot chocolate
Home made mince pies (one for Father Christmas)
Carrot for Rudolf
Bottle of beer for FC
Reindeer food (oats and glitter) to sprinkle in the garden
Key for FC (didn't have a chimney)
The Night Before Christmas book
Tea light to put outside the back door so the reindeer can find their way.

This year will be similar, for 2 dc now, with addition of new pjs for each as they are needed, and might stick some bubble bath in there.

Our Christmas eve hamper will contain;

Father Christmas key
The night before Christmas book
Beauty and the beast enchanted Christmas DVD ( I always put in a christmas film they haven't seen it)
Hot choc stirrers (first time we have used them) in a new cup with mini marshmallows and 'snowman soup' poem tied to it.
Magic flannels (can't put in bath bombs because of ezcema)
New PJ's (frozen ones)
New slippers (hopefully frozen ones if I can get them)
And a Christmas sweet ... probably Father Christmas kinder eggs.

I'm not sure what the chocolate sticks are like, have never tried them, I might add a pack of mini marshmallows to make it a bit more exciting.

First year I'm doing it we have

Pj's from primark
Christmas colouring book
Santa's key
Frozen chocolate bars
A frozen glow in the dark wand
Night before Xmas book
And I'm thinking reindeer food as well and a note from the elf who will get here on the 1st December!

We got some cool carpet freshner which comes with santa boots stencils which we are going to sprinkle on the carpet towards the Christmas tree so it looks like his walked in! Xx

This year DS's will be:

PJs (Frozen ones)
Slippers (Mickey Mouse Stompeez)
Cuddly toys (Frozen again - Olaf and Sven plushes)
DVD (Mickey Mouse Christmas and maybe 101 Dalmations if I can resist giving it to him early)
Dinner and cutlery set

Need to get - hot chocolate, marshmallows, squirty cream, chocolates of some kind and a new decoration for the tree.

It's all going in a storage seat/box thing instead of a hamper this year.

Namechange if you wanted to try bath bombs, we have very sensitive skin and eczema here but the Lush Ickle Baby Not and Butterball bathbombs are amazing!

Although our skin tends to be SLS sensitive and these don't contain so I guess it could depend on triggers

We do similar but we also have the Father Christmas name plate for the mince pies and some magic reindeer food too

Cosy Xmas pjs
Cosy Xmas socks

I am planing on new pjs, night before Christmas, hot choc, tub of chocs, microwave teddy each. Not doing it as a hamper as such and I bought a bath bomb but its one to break up and use several times from lush and they are currently sat in a bath if it already.... May need another by Christmas Eve!! Was going to include a baking set to make cookies for Santa but we are now baking in the morning but might be a nice idea??
