It’s that time of year again.. I know, It’s come around so fast! This is my first Christmas inspired post, it’s my favourite time of the year so I’ll be throwing myself into the festivities.
All my shopping trips from now on will be consisting purely of Christmas shopping for loved ones, (I enjoy it so much so I don’t mind scouring shops for hours on end).
Home made presents can be kind of daunting, you have to buy so many things just to make it look pretty! Well I decided to give it a go, but make it simple enough not to stress me out.
I decided to go with a ‘Kids Christmas box’.. (not the usual Christmas eve box, just a standard Christmas box which can be gifted at any point throughout the Christmas period).
What you will need:
- A box of your choosing (any size or shape)
- Some tissue paper and bubble wrap (if you have breakables in there)
- A Christmas story book
- A Christmas mug
- Hot chocolate
- Mini marshmallows (Snowman poop)
- Chocolate raisins (Reindeer poop)
- Candy canes
- Terry’s chocolate orange
- Chocolate Santa
- Sweet cone
- A bell with a message
A list of other items you could include (that I didn’t include in the one I made):
- Christmas DVD
- Soft toy
- Letter from Santa
- Colouring book
- Activity book
- Decoration making kit
- Reindeer food (oats)
- Colouring pencils
- Festive pen
- Something personalised (glass with their name on)
When I decided I was going to start making some Christmas boxes, I did a lot of research; what are the best things to include, how much everything will cost, how much you can make back on it (if you intend to sell them). There are so many cute homemade touches you can add, which make it even more special.
I chose a Kids Christmas box, because let’s face it.. Christmas brings out the child in almost everyone, so shopping around for fun children’s things is so much better. You could also make boxes for; Men, Women, Couples, Families, themed boxes (coffee lover, gardener etc).
