what's going in our christmas eve box! (part II)

December 2, 2019


I'm so excited to be sharing the goodies that will be going in our little gals’ first Christmas Eve Box, and *hopefully* give you some great ideas that you can include in yours! If you missed 'Part I' of this blog post sharing how I DIY'd our crate, you can read it HERE.


Everyone does this tradition a little differently, but my interpretation is these gifts and activities should be fun for the family to experience together, while getting your little ones excited for Christmas Day. I asked some of you on Instagram to share the special things YOU include in your Christmas Eve Box, so I’ve included some of those ideas on this list as well! 


Also, note that some folks will gift this box at the start of the holiday season or on December 1st. We decided to have “the Elves” deliver it on Christmas Eve, but gifting it earlier gives you the opportunity to include items that can be enjoyed all season long!
