I know this is not an original tradition. A lot of families do it. It is a fun tradition I would love to start with Aria. It's a fun way to celebrate Christmas Eve. My budget for the box is around $15. I did go over a bit this year with the movie.
Let's take a look at the box!
I love getting new pajamas, especially when they coordinate with Aria. It's fun to wake up Christmas morning and have brand new pajamas. Carters always has some of the cutest jammies. Sam's Club has these jammies from $5-8. I like to stock up during the warmer months when the have these on sale, I did get a pair for $3 one year.
We love reading at bedtime. A Christmas story not only helps get her to sleep, but gets us in the Christmas spirit. I love this one, it has 9 different Christmas classics that we love. Costco and Sams Club both have a huge selection of Holiday books. This book was only $7.
This is another addition that helps us get into the spirit. We like to share movies with her that we grew up on. This version of The Christmas Carol is my favorite. I used to watch this as a child and it brings back so many wonderful Christmas memories. I did spend a little more on this than I usually do for Eve boxes. I usually only spend about $5, but we had to have this one.
Of course no movie is complete without popcorn. Aria's favorite snack as of lately. Petersen's Farm has these for $6. It comes with everything you need, it comes with two ears, and popping bags. They make amazing neighbor gifts. Aria loves this popcorn.
I would love to hear your Christmas Traditions. If you do a Christmas Eve box what do you put in them?
