What can I do with this?!

I got married at Christmas and had made a bespoke cake stand which is a sleigh being pulled by reindeer. It's huge! the cake sat in the sleigh part and was 9 tier (just to give you an idea of how large it is). Anyway I'd always intended to get it out every Christmas and repurpose it..which I have done with mince pies, holly etc on. But...I need more ideas! I now have a dc so would love to do something more with it each year! what would you do?

Put small presents on it and place on mantle piece. You could do a secret Santa with the presents and open them on Xmas eve.

Maybe you could use it in place of an advent calendar - an advent sleigh & as previous poster says put small gifts in but to open each day.

Flameless candles on each level?

There are some good ones out there (I bought some from The Range which have the 'moving flame' effect rather than the solid flame) or QVC sell them but ££.

Safer than real flames and cool to touch so you could put decorations, sweets, foliage.

One idea I poached was "A Teddy On Every Step" I bought tiny teddy bears , one on each step of the staircase. You could arrange nine Teddy Bears .
