Things to put in a Christmas Eve Box

10 Ideas for a Christmas Eve Box

Thought I would ask my three older children (10, 7 and 5) what Phoenix Trading goodies they would like in a Christmas Eve Box and here’s what they suggested.

1 Puppets

This will keep them busy and they can use them again over the next few days. Two fabulous sets of colour in Nativity and Christmas Character Finger Puppets

2 Doodling

With 6 sheets in this Christmas Holiday Fun pack there are oodles of doodles to keep the whole family scribbling if necessary.

3 Paperchains

Christmas Eve box paper chainsI didn’t see that one coming either but despite being used as my lick-machines over the years it appears they still enjoy making paperchains, either in the traditional way or to make decorations for the tree. These red, white and black nordic ones look really stylish as well as being fun to make.

4 Colour in Tablecloth

5 Notebooks and Jotter pad Christmas stationery

All children love stationery. You cannot have too many notebooksnotebooks and jotter pads. Enough said!

6 Door Hanger

Santa needs to know where to stop after all, so this door hanger is perfect for giving little ones the confidence that he will know where to leave the presents.

7 Bookmark

This cheeky tower of reindeer bookmark is perfect for a Christmas Eve read. 

If you need some ideas of books for Christmas Eve then we traditionally read Twas the Night Before Christmas before they go to bed on Christmas Eve but they also love Christmas Stories for Little Children. A Christmas Carol is also a great read for older children. Christmas Day will be so busy that bedtime stories probably won’t happen. I believe no Christmas Eve Box is complete without a story. Settle them down for bed and take the chance to stop for a minute and remember what Christmas is all about amidst the preparations.

8 Bunting

9 Table Decorations

These table decorations include settings for 6 people so you might need more than one pack depending how many are coming round. Includes menu holder, napkin rings, coasters and place names.

10 Gift Tags

If your house is anything like mine then there are always a few last minute presents to wrap on Christmas Eve. Get them sticking these gift tags together to put on those gifts.
