As you have probably already realised we are a bit mad about Christmas.
The Christmas Eve Box is a tradition we started when Freddie was about 3 years old. In fact the same time we had the Elf on the Shelf come and visit.
I get asked so many times what I actually put in the Christmas Eve box I thought I would let you know what we put in ours:
Christmas Eve Box Ideas for 9 Year Old Boys
Now we already have hundreds of Christmas movies so I thought I would share some of our favourites. After Freddie has had a bath and got lovely and clean in his new PJs we snuggle down and watch a Christmas film before bed. I think my all time favourite though would be Elf with Will Ferrell.
If we can find a Christmassy themed book even better. This year we are including the amazing David Walliams Ice Monster in it. Freddie loves all of his books so this is perfect timing.
I normally add in a snowman soup that I have made and some gold coins.
I know this is a little rubbish, however, they all need one and the idea is that he goes to bed super clean ready for Christmas Day! This is just something we have added in since day 1 so it is our little tradition. This year we have opted for the junior electric toothbrush.
Shower Gel and Bath Bomb
I always include these, and this year I have come across this. Most of the time all of the nice stuff is most definitely aimed at girls, but I love this. Boys bath bomb set.
Freddie wears his Christmas pjs all through December, so on Christmas Eve he will get a new pair that are not Christmassy. Like so many kids he loves Fortnite so these ones are just perfect.
Christmas Eve Box
This is the first year we have actually had a box! Normally we would just leave it out next to Freddie’s advent calendar. But this year we have finally got this one:
