Making Christmas Eve Memories

Making Christmas Eve Memories

I’ve decided that Fridays are going to be my Christmas theme blog day. There’s so much I want to share with you in the build up to the big day and so as not to overload any one who really doesn’t want to embrace the season until December, consider that a heads up. Although I’m sure you’ll welcome a little inspiration to get you prepared and good to go!

This week is all about the night before Christmas, something I’m sure you’ll have you’re own tradition for. I personally prefer Christmas Eve to the main event. It’s all about the anticipation, the excitement and the planning and this year is going to be no different. The toddler may be none the wiser but this is where his Christmas memories truly begin, the photos will be testament to all that we did and I’ve copped out on a few things this year giving the excuse that he’s too young but not this time.

Plus with 2 older children, as much as they’ll protest that it’s not cool, I know they’ll secretly join in, all in the name of helping their little brother.

Our Christmas Eve’s in the past have consisted of preparing the table for the Christmas feast., putting out reindeer food and food and drinks for Santa, having Christmas music on full blast most of the day, getting stockings ready, listening out for the jingle bells from Santas elves running round the garden and reading the Night Before Christmas.

This year though we have another thing to throw in the mix, a Christmas Eve Kit from Zac and Lily . It contains everything we’re going to need to really kick our Christmas Eve off.

Each box consists of;


A bag of Santa’s cookie mix,

Reindeer food

A pouch of sparkly magical reindeer food

Snowman hot chocolate

A hot choc and marshmallow snowman, and a colour me in Christmas card.

My plan is to give it to the boys late afternoon so we can bake the cookies, sit down and watch a christmas film with a hot chocolate then write the card to leave out for Santa. It arrives in a nice brown cardboard box, tied with red ribbon with a gift tag,   they’re a very reasonable £12.50, which I don’t think is too bad for such a cute little bundle.

Just a little something to start our third and final son off on his Christmas journey.


We were sent a Zac and Lily Christmas Eve box, all photos and words are my own.

    What a beautiful tradition to start up Ali, I’m sure little R will love it. I love the idea of a Xmas Eve box of some description. Can’t quite believe that Xmas is in six weeks time!!!

I'd love to know what you think?
