Chloe's Tweenager Christmas Eve Basket

A couple of day's ago you may have seen me post about creating my younger daughter Sophia a toddler Christmas eve basket which you can read about here . Well, I have also created her older sister Chloe (who is twelve year's old) one too. Obviously, as there is a huge age gap between my girl's  (10 years) I have put totally different things into Chloe's basket. But I have kept the idea similar pyjamas, an activity of some sort, some sweet treats and then I added a few extra little bits I have seen whilst out shopping.

I have really enjoyed making this basket for Chloe and I hope that she likes it as she obviously has to know that Santa is not real for a good few years now. So here is a look at what I have put in Chloe's tween Christmas Eve basket.

Christmas Eve Basket

I have brought Chloe the same basket that I bought for Sophia, which was only £5 from Home Bargains. 

As I mentioned in Sophia's basket post I wanted to include an activity as Christmas Eve is long and boring when you are a child. Chloe is far too old for colouring stuff and I have not included a book like I did in Sophia's as Chloe has hardly any interest at all in books. I thought about including a Christmas DVD but we have built up quite a collection of Christmas DVDs over the years and the ones that we do not already own are on sky movies. So I have opted to get Chloe a make your own gingerbread house. Chloe loves baking so hopefully it will keep her occupied for an hour. I bought this one from Home Bargains for £4.49 but you buy them from pretty much anywhere for a similar price.

I got some Christmas pyjamas and some Christmas slipper socks. My dad has brought Chloe a onesie from next for Christmas Eve but I thought I would get her these anyway. The pyjamas were around £10 from New Look teen department and the slipper socks were £1.50 from Primark.

We are planning a lazy afternoon watching films on Christmas Eve so I got Chloe some sweet treats, the same as her sister to have while watching films. She has some Cadbury festive biscuits, a chocolate lolly from Sainsbury's, some chocolate coins from Tesco and a marshmallow lolly.

I also got her a cheap Christmas mug from the pound shop and a Wispa hot chocolate sachet. So she can enjoy a hot chocolate whilst watching a festive film.

Reindeer dust, I know Chloe is far too old for this but I brought her sister some so I had to get Chloe some too this was 99p from the card factory.

A Lush bath bomb, Chloe loves Lush bath bombs so I got her a Santa one to use in her bath on Christmas Eve.

Little extras, a Christmas lip balm which is candy cane flavour and this was £2 from Claire's. I got this Christmas bauble which has nail varnish and nail glitter in from Primark for £2. 

So that's what is inside Chloe's tweenager Christmas eve basket. I am hoping she will like it and that it will help get her all excited for Christmas. What have you put inside your child's Christmas eve basket this year if you have made one?
