Family Christmas Eve Gift
Those of you who open your gifts on Christmas Day know that, on Christmas Eve, the kids are almost berserk with excitement, wanting to open presents! Here is a fun thing to do on Christmas Eve to jump start things. This could be a new tradition– It would even be a great “family” Christmas Eve gift to give. Of course you can add or take away the things you use in this gift to fit your budget or for the situation maybe adding even a few fun gag gifts.
Wrap a large box with a bow on it and say, “This is to be opened as soon as it gets dark or on Christmas Eve.” I made a silly little poem to put on it but you could write your own.
Here is mine
Christmas Eve is here!
For this we have waited all year,
So let’s begin the fun,
And open this box for everyone.
Place things in the box like:
Pajamas for everyone
Funny Christmas hats, antlers or light up noses
A Christmas book
A Christmas movie
Hot Chocolate with marshmallows
Like I said, pick and choose what you put in there to make it more meaningful for your family. I recommend including mostly stuff for a fun evening together and everyone loves getting new pajamas for Christmas so this makes it like a Christmas Eve pajama party!
