5 Children’s Books Ideal For A Christmas Eve Box

Over the last couple of years, I have started doing a Christmas Eve box for my boys. I really enjoy putting little bits together in their boxes such as –

Christmas PJ’s
Hot chocolate
Christmas DVD
A couple of sweet treats
A bedtime storybook

My kids have a bedtime story every night so Christmas Eve is no different. They love their bedtime stories and I have come across some lovely books recently that will be perfect for a Christmas Eve box filler, so here they are!

The Snowdog Board Book By Raymond Briggs

This is a gorgeous little rhyming board book all about Snowdog. Snowdog loves to have fun and play in the snow. This cute little toddlers book is beautifully illustrated. It really is adorable.

The Christmasaurus is all about a little boy called William Trundle and a dinosaur called the Christmasaurus. They meet each other on Christmas Eve and enjoy a magical adventure together. The journey is all about discovering what our heart desires and that the impossible is indeed not all that impossible! We learn about friendships and family, see singing elves, flying reindeer and other fabulous finds. A beautiful enchanting story for Christmas Eve.

Billy and the Minpins By Roald Dahl, illustrated by Quentin Blake

This is a brand new edition of Roald Dahl’s last story.Billy’s mum says he must never go out through the garden gate and explore the dark forest beyond. So, one day, that’s exactly what he does! There he meets the Minpins, tiny tree-dwelling people whose children are the size of matchsticks. They live in fear of the terrible, galloping GRUNCHER.

Father Christmas’s Fake Beard By Terry Pratchett

Have you ever wanted Christmas to be different? Turkey and carols, presents and crackers – they all start to feel a bit…samey. How about a huge exploding mince pie, a pet abominable snowman, or a very helpful partridge in a pear tree? What if Father Christmas went to work at a zoo, or caused chaos in a toy store, or was even arrested for burglary!? These ten stories will have the kids in fits of laughter!

    Hi Jayne, the idea of a Christmas box never occurred to me, but it’s something I would have done for sure when they were younger. It did occur to me to do one now they are older, but I battle to know what to buy them as it is. One thing I did do was to buy a Christmas book for us to enjoy. Who doesn’t enjoy a good Christmas book? I would have happily enjoyed any of the books above… When your boys are older I can recommend Tolkiens Letters From Father Christmas. I even took the idea and used it myself for a few years.
