I just wrapped the first present of the season: a Christmas box for Libby. This will be our first year celebrating 25 days of Christmas as a family. Sure, we do it unofficially, but this year we picked up a Christmas countdown calendar. That makes it official. To jump start our 25 days of Christmas, I made Libby a Christmas Box to be opened on December 1st.
The December 1st Christmas box is a way to get into the Christmas spirit for the whole month of December. With her really starting to get excited and catch on to things, I am eager to give her this! We wanted to get her items with Santa so she could get excited he is coming to see her.
What’s in the Toddler Christmas Box:
No Christmas box is complete without a new pair of Christmas jammies. I love these styles with the buttons. They seem so traditional. I picked mine up at Babies R’ Us. They are by Koala Kids. Here are some similar styles by Carter’s currently available on Amazon.
A Christmas Book
For a Christmas book, I picked up Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas. It has five star reviews on Amazon, and Libby LOVES all things girly. Don’ forget you can order used books on Amazon. That’s what I did. It came it good condition and saved some money. Libby’s still rough on her books, seeing as she is only two.

A Christmas Countdown Calendar
We opted for a Chocolate Countdown calendar. I wanted something she could look forward to opening when my husband got home from work. We try to avoid too many sweets, but I do prefer chocolate to other candies. If you get one with candies, pick-it up from the store, it’s much less expensive!
I ordered these Christmas Stickers that I ended up giving to her on Thanksgiving for a busy time activity (I’m still putting them in her box:)). They’re nice because they are larger stickers, perfect for small hands. Target’s dollar bins also had some fun Christmas stickers. Which I also picked up.
Juices Boxes or Snacks
A few juice boxes made it in to the Christmas box. She just loves these. I threw them in for an added treat. It’s hard not to go crazy with all the adorable Christmas packaging out there!
