Like last year i have made another Christmas Eve Basket and i wanted to share what i put inside it for the children. Many people have Traditions and having my own family i really wanted to set some in place for us. This basket will hopefully grow with the children over the years until they no longer need it although thats a sad thought for me for sure...
This year like the last I've put in some Christmasy books for the children to read throughout this festive season along with the usual fun Christmasy Pj's! I actually found it really hard to find some cute ones this year, some were too over priced or just not for me. I managed to find these ones in Mothercare. I think it could possibly be the last year i can buy clothes for Alister in this shop now as he's just growing up too fast!
I searched high and low for some Christmasy mugs for the children to enjoy hot chocolate in, i managed to find a couple of white mugs with their initials on from Matalan for only £2 each. They are very basic but i spruced them up using my metallic Sharpie pens just for an added touch. I think they turned out well. Heres last years DIY gift ideas on how to do the mugs- DIY gifts.
The kids love to draw and colour, i found these festive activity books from The Range for only a £1 each as well as the foil christmas stickers, what child doesn't love stickers?!
Every year i always get the children a FUN Bar to share this year Lush brought out a new festive glittery bar so i had to have it! the fun bars are like playdoh, however the children can use them as shampoo, bubble bath and just general fun in the bath whats not to love!
As a little treat i made the kids up a bag full of marshmallows and chocolate coins to enjoy over the christmas season although I'm sure they weren't last long!
Its definitely a must to add some more 'themed' books in to their book collection, i found a handful of fun and christmasy ones on amazon that looked great.
Christmas Crafts are loved in this house! I picked these up from Home bargains a few weeks ago they were so cheap!
I really hope you enjoyed this post and its given you some inspiration on what to put in your childs basket this year! Check out last years here- Xmas Eve Basket.
