20 ideas for Christmas Eve Boxes
This year is going to be the 1st year I am going to do this! Lots of my friends get busy making up these boxes and I have been inspired by them to do so and make Christmas Eve more chrismassy for the girls.
There are some beautiful already filled personalised boxes you can buy from Not On The High Street and I love this one (see link) as it's full already with goodies and things to do on Christmas Eve. It also contains a letter from the man of the moment reminding you what time he will visit and what to leave out for himself and Rudolph.
Making up your own box is easy enough too and you can put things in for everyone...even the pets.
