Every year we love to make a Christmas Eve box for Aria to open. This is a tradition we started with Aria and we hope she continues with her family later on in life. You can see last years box here.
As a kid we would always get together Christmas Eve play games and eat lots and lots of food. I love having traditions every year around this time to celebrate together. As the family expands we change it up a little. We went from playing white elephant bingo to playing card games. It is so much fun to laugh and carry on these fun traditions.
Aria’s Christmas Box always contains new pajamas. We love the Carter’s onesies. They keep Aria warm and cozy since she never keeps her blankets on. I found this cute pair at Costco and knew it would be perfect for her cute Christmas Eve Box.
Next we love to include popcorn. Aria loves to watch movies and eat delicious popcorn. Petersen’s Farm has the most delicious popcorn you can pop right off the ear. We then like to add coconut oil and Himalayan salt to the popcorn and it is absolutely delicious. We usually pop this after opening, and watch a Christmas Movie.
With popcorn we include some Hot Chocolate. Just some simple packets of Swiss Miss. This fits nicely in the box and Aria loves drinking some hot chocolate and dropping in marshmallows.
Christmas Books are always a must have. Kids always need new books and Christmas books are always the cutest and most fun to read Christmas Eve. I usually pick mine up from Costco or Usbourne online.
I would love to know what traditions you have in your family. We are always looking for new traditions to pass down to Aria.
