Joey's Christmas Eve box 2015

Over the past few weeks I've been seeing a lot of lovely Christmas eve hampers created by my favourite blogger mums, so I decided to make one for Joey.
To be honest, I've only left my self about a week to get it prepared so it's probably not as good as I ideally wanted it but it's my first attempt. I plan on doing a Christmas eve hamper for Joey every year, it will be lovely to see how each hamper changes every year as he gets older.

Wicker baskets (Pack of 3) - £9.99 B&M

Here's what's inside...
Santa plate - £19.95  Notonthehighstreet.com
Last year it was Joey's first Christmas and the first time I'd ever seen a personalised Dear santa plate name bit it was too late to order one. Then this year I completely forgot about it and made a rather last minute purchase via Notonthehighstreet.com and it arrived pretty quickly even if it was a few days before Christmas.
Santa paint canvas - 99p store
I was browsing one of our many pound shops in town and I came across one that sold Christmas canvasses with a few colours of paint and a brush. For 99p it's not bad for keeping the kids occupied.

That's not my reindeer 
I'd been trying to find these for ages in my town and went into one of the only bookshops we have in St Helens and they had a variety of That's not my books. They are touchy feely books so great for a bit of sensory play.  

Santa is coming to St Helens
Another great Christmassy book to read with the kids before Christmas but this makes it more personal to where you live and tells the story of Santa and his reindeers travelling to St Helens to deliver presents. Local landmarks are mentioned in the book so great for little ones to start learning about their local community. 

Sleepsuit - £10 Mothercare
This sleepsuit was a rather last minute buy at Mothercare in the sale for £10. It's a Christmas pudding sleepsuit and says "Mummy's Little pudding" and also comes with a hat. In January MyVoucherCodes are offering Up to 50% off in the Mothercare sale.



Marshmallows - £1. 80 Mothercare
A lovely little thing I picked up from Mothercare, mainly because of its packaging. They were in the sale at £1.80.

Here are a few hamper ideas from some of my fave bloggers:
Sparkles & Stretchmarks
Lilypod & Sweetpea
Mrs Meldrum

I hope you've enjoyed having a peek at Joey's Christmas eve box. Have you made one for your little ones?

Merry Christmas
