Birthday just before Christmas

My daughter's birthday is a couple of days before Christmas. Have you got any ideas for a 'thing' to do rather than presents? She will get something to unwrap but I would really like to do something with her as she will be getting presents a few days later.

She will be 7. I don't really fancy pantomime, and I have looked at a night away in a treehouse or something but can't find anything that close to Christmas.
Any ideas?

Personally I'd make the most of the bargains so she very much feels like she gets presents and give her a big treat at the start of the summer holidays. A new climbing frame or something.

Ice skating? That's quite a wintery thing to do?

Or maybe try and book a cheap hotel near a city somewhere and go shopping/for tea and sleepover at the hotel?

Failing that, cinema (there should be Christmas movies out by then) or bowling and let her choose food afterwards.

My DH birthday is the week before Christmas and I always try and do something nice to celebrate.

Happy planning!

Where abouts in the country are you? Are you near to London?

We have similar with DS's birthday close to Christmas he usually has a party in December but as he's got older he has a much smaller tighter group of friends. He either had a birthday party often Christmas themed or did something with his friends cinema or laser quest and we also usually go to see a movie as a family on the day and or always go out for tea afterwards at a restaurant of DS's choice to try and make it special.
At 7 if they still believe in santa I would do something Christmassy the ice skating sounds nice.

Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park is lovely - if you’re any where near London/willing to travel?

My birthday is on 22nd December. Every year I change the date I celebrate my birth. This year I'm celebrating on 8/10/17 (this Sunday).
