I love that we have started so many wonderful Christmas traditions, from our daughter’s Book Advent Calendar, to our Christmas Eve box. It’s lovely to have something to share as a family what is probably one of the cosiest nights of the year.
Though our Christmas Eve box changes from year to year, there are a number of things which remain constant. There is always a book to share for bedtime, a game for us to play as a family, some pjs and some Christmas themed activities, like colouring or crafting.
We also always include the ingredients to make a super hot chocolate. The perfect cup for our hot chocolates would be this incredible personalised Gruffalo Mug. We also like to include a sweet treat to enjoy whilst we drink our hot chocolate (which always seem to have more marshmallows that the year before!)
This year, we will be including some of the Thorntons chocolates range. They are super cute, Christmassy chocolate figures, which not only finished the Christmas Eve box off perfectly but would also make the most incredible stocking filler too.
I love the Cheeky Elf*, whereas my daughter has chosen the Jolly Reindeer* for her very own, (I am sure it’s because she thinks that one contains the most chocolate!) I also love that there is a white chocolate option with The Snowman*.I am a big fan of white chocolate, so I imagine I might try to steal that one.
I am so excited for Christmas, and I cannot wait for Christmas Eve so that we can open our box and enjoy some wonderful family time together. I am going to be taking a break over the Christmas period but I will be back in the new year, with more posts and book reviews. Wishing all of my readers a very lovely Christmas.
Do you have any Christmas traditions? Do you have a Christmas Eve Box? What does yours include?
