30 Days of Christmas Cheer {Day 17}: The Christmas Eve Gift Box Tradition

30 Days to Christmas Cheer Christmas Eve Gift Box  Day 17

“Time cannot be packaged and ribboned and left under trees for Christmas morning. Time can’t be given. But it can be shared” — Cecelia Ahern

Today’s Christmas Cheer challenge is about packaging up a box of special Christmas treats for the kiddies and watching their faces light up with excitement on Christmas Eve or even earlier.

That’s right.

This is a gift to them from us before Santa visits and sets the stage for everything that’s going to unfold.

 Creating Childhood Memories and Traditions Activity

Every year, I fill up a box {it’s the same box every year} with Christmas PJs, Christmas book, a Christmas DVD and some Christmas stickers for both Finlee and Chloe. Here’s a peek at one of the boxes I made for them last year.

It’s such a treat to watch them wear their special Christmas PJs, read their books and just be all out thrilled with it. We choose to give this box to them on Christmas Eve but I know of families who do this on December 1st. So, go with what feels good to you and make this sweet tradition your own.

Hi Kate- yes we love your advent and shared it this year and last year. I’ve been inspired by your book advent and some I’ve seen on PInterest over the years and have created one for our family this year. So so so excited to start reading our Christmas collection every night. Wishing you and your family and a wonderful holiday season. xx
