New Traditions: Creating the perfect Christmas Eve box!

December 23, 2016

Disclosure:  I received a gift card to Finn + Emma in exchange for an honest review of their products.  All opinions

I love Christmas Eve, the anticipation of Christmas is so high.  We usually go to mass on Christmas Eve and I love to bring my boys home and give them just ONE gift.  This year I made a “Christmas Eve” box for my oldest son’s best friend.  I always include a pair of nice pajamas for my boys, so they wake up in beautiful pajamas for all the Christmas morning photographs to come.  My favorites are from Finn + Emma.  They are organic, and so incredibly soft.  Finn + Emma always makes beautiful pajamas (and other clothes and toys, for that matter!) but their pajamas have always been my favorite.

I like to get the kids a movie, usually a Christmas movie but for this little boy I knew a dinosaur movie was non-negotiable.  He loves Dinosaurs!  I snagged this Dino Dan DVD for 1.00 at a used book store over the summer.

I also thought a fun activity book would make the time go by faster while he wanted on Santa, so I added one of my favorite things from Melissa and Doug.  Their reusable sticker pads!  These usually run only about 5 bucks, but my kids and every other kid I’ve ever given one to LOVE them.  We took one on our forty hour drive this summer for the boys and they had a ball.

I feel like you don’t want these Christmas eve gifts to be too expensive or large, but they can be really special and customized.  Here are some ideas of great ideas
