For the last two years I have put a box of goodies together for the boys to open on Christmas Eve. Inside, they usually get snacks for themselves and for their impending visitors, a blanket to snuggle up in, some Christmas activities and a book. Last year I put pyjamas in but this year they really don’t need any.
It’s a lovely way to spend such an exciting evening and I have found that if they snuggle under their new blanket with a hot chocolate and a bit of Netflix, they’re nice and calm at bedtime and more than ready to drift off. It makes the evening far less stressful for me if they go to bed on time – if you’re a parent you’ll know exactly how busy Christmas Eve can be!
I love to spread Christmas cheer, which is why I’ve teamed up with The Portland Hospital to bring you an extra special competition! The Portland Hospital is the only private hospital in the UK offering services to Women and Children only.
