Archie’s First Christmas Eve Box

Starting traditions with my little family was so important to me right from the off and so even though Archie is only be eight months old this Christmas, I wanted to make his very first festive season a special one.

My mam has always made a big deal of Christmas Eve with me. It also happens to be my Granda’s birthday so although I like to keep his birthday separate to Christmas so that he can enjoy both, it’s a wonderful time of the year for spending quality time with family.

I’d always have fresh sheets and new pyjamas ready for santa coming, we’d make a start on the prep for Christmas dinner and sit down once it was all done as a family and watch films. These are the traditions I want to continue with my son. I want him to be as excited as I was as a child and to really feel the magic of Christmas in his own home.

Blanket | I picked up this fleecy blanket back in September or October because I simply can’t resist anything that makes a big deal of the fact it’ll be Archie’s first Christmas. I just LOVE the little Santa motif on it, and it’ll be perfect for tucking my baby up in bed with.

Book | I spent forever searching for this book – and of course as soon as I bought it, it then appeared everywhere. But I was so pleased I managed to pick up a copy AND it came with the cutest little reindeer teddy too. I just love reading with Archie and these touch and feel stories are perfect for him to get involved with.

Plate for Santa | This was one of the items I was most excited about purchasing for Archie’s Christmas Eve box. I know he has no idea of the magic of it all at the moment but I can’t wait for the day he gets excited about leaving a mince pie and milk out for Santa – although Father Christmas may prefer a cheeky beer or glass of wine instead hehe!

Harrods teddy | When I was younger, collecting the Christmas teddies from stores was kind of a thing, so I couldn’t resist this my first Harrods puppy as it has Archie’s birth year on it too. It’s definitely going to become a keepsake teddy that we can bring out each year for him.

Pyjamas | What’s Christmas without some fresh pj’s ready for Santa? I still to this day get new pyjamas on Christmas Eve and therefore I wanted to make sure I do the same for Archie. This year, I bought Chris, Archie and I matching ones (because well there’s not many years I’ll be able to get away with this either hehe).

 

DVD | Is there anything more festive than sitting down together watching a movie? Peter Rabbit is Archie’s favourite so when I saw this Christmas tale for only £3.99 in Home Bargains I just had to buy it. It’s perfect for his very first Christmas Eve box.

Box | Of course, a Christmas Eve box wouldn’t be complete without a container to put everything in. I wanted something sturdy, something traditional looking and of course something personalised! I had been searching for a long time for the perfect one and to be honest I was soon about to give up until I stumbled across this one from Etsy. I am so pleased with the way it turned out – it’s exactly what I wanted. It could have perhaps been a little bit bigger – only because I end up buying lots more things than I first expect to – but that’s a me problem!
