Does anyone else do a box of goodies to open on christmas eve? I was thinking of including:

Dressing gown
Slipper socks
Face cloth
Wash mitt
Xmas soap
Xmas shower gel
Toy for bath
Xmas DVD
Xmas book
Christmas mug
Bar of chocolate for making real hot chocolate
Bag of popcorn
Bag of marshmallows
Reindeer food and carrot
Torch (for sprinkling reindeer food)

I've got us all new pjs but didn't think of a hamper. Nice idea. What kind of box do you use? Where do I get reindeer dust?

I made reindeer food with porridge oats, edible glitter and hundreds and thousands. I just used a gift box I bought from the pound shop.

Our neighbour bought us some over last year which was very sweet as dd was only 7 months and we were sooooooo excited.

I think I am going to wrap up a box as a surprise and put in

our new Christmas cd
new pyjamas for all 3 of us
some M&S mulled wine to heat up
a Christmas book for dd (she's 18 mo & we're not religious - any suggestions?)
a Christmassy DVD (any suggestions? We have The Snowman)
some nice chocolates for me and dp to enjoy
Mucky Pup bath toys for dd which were going in her stocking
Reindeer food

Was just re-looking at this as I am about to do DS'. This year I have also included a Santa pillowcase to put on his bed, a christmas pudding bath bomb which DS thinks is magic, a Christmas CD, Thomas the Tank Engine bath foam which he can pretend is snow and put some on his face and pretend to be Santa and some Thomas the Tank Engine shower gel which magically turns the bath water blue.
