    So I’ve never done these but for the year that’s in it, gonna try it. I don’t really want to buy a load of crap for it either outside of what I can’t make.
    So I know the new pjs/ fluffy socks are standard.
    I’m going to print out some Santa colouring pages and I’ve got them a box of crayons. I’m going to make reindeer food out of some porridge and glitter and put it into a little bag. I’ll get a couple of little sachets of got chocolate for them as a treat. What else can I put into them?

    Please don't put glitter in the reindeer food, wildlife will eat the oats and ingest the glitter too, and\or it will end up eventually in the water sources.

    What age are they? I usually put cookie mix in so we can bake our cookies for Santa Xmas Eve. There are some lovely story books for Xmas too. Kippers Christmas Eve is a favourite here. bath bomb for their bath too

    We put, pjs, socks, hot chocolate (bomb this year) a new Christmas bedtime story each, the food for Santa and Rudolph. Just something to tide them over but not enough excitement to keep them awake.

    If they don't yet have a Christmas themed mug and/or a egg cup holder, it would be nice and they can use them for years to come !

    Some lovely ideas there guys, thanks a million. I’ll leave the glitter out of the oats, it’ll be all the same to them. They’re 4 BTW, twin trouble, oh and we’ll have a brand new one too! Next year we’ll need safety locks in the Christmas Eve pack to keep baby away from the tree! Ha.

    Christmas tree decoration with their name or one that represents them eg. Favourite animal...there are so many decorations available now :)

    Little snowglobe. You can actually get these with names on them too. Usually in Easons :)

    Not sure if they're boys or girls but Dunnes have very cute Christmas themed hair bands :)
