Christmas Eve Hamper Ideas For The Kids

Christmas Eve Hamper

One of our Christmas traditions is to give Christmas Eve hampers to the kids. My lot are older now, but they still love to receive their Christmas hampers and I Love putting them together. Years ago when the kids were small, we used to wrap up new PJ's and slippers, usually they would have a festive design and we would give them to our very hyper brood on the night before Christmas. New PJ's were always a great way to get them to go to bed at a reasonable hour.

These days we have a lot more choice of great value products to fill a hamper for very little money which means you can put together great hampers on a budget. I have taken one gift bag and filled it with little surprises to keep the kids entertained while you rush around with last minute preparations. I usually use a gift bag for my hampers, but you could use an old shoe box and cover it in some Christmas wrapping paper. 

A few ideas for items to fill the hamper:
  • Make your own Christmas decorations
  • Festive colouring books 
  • A story book
  • Reindeer food
  • A magic key for Santa
  • Cookie cutters to make a treat for Santa
  • Snowman Soup
  • Christmas craft kit
  • A Christmas DVD
  • Some new PJ's
  • A soft toy

Do you put together Christmas hampers? 
If so what do you like to fill them with?
