Are you searching for stocking stuffers, gifts for the kids in your life or looking to stuff that Christmas Eve goody box? Well search no further because I’ll share with you one of our favorite holiday traditions with some hints and tips to do the same for your household. On Christmas Eve every year I make sure not to plan anything in the evening. This is our family time to prepare for the Big Guy (hint: Santa). Everyone receives a new pair of Christmas themed jammies and we snuggle up for a new movie (I try to find a new movie every year, preferably holiday themed), eat popcorn and sip hot cocoa. I usually just have all the supplies on hand but I wrap the pajamas up and place them under the tree for all of the family members but this year I heard about the “Christmas Box” idea and I love it.
You purchase or make a crate or box of your choice. You can embellish it, paint it or spruce it up with some festive decor. You roll up the different pairs for pajamas, place a couple of bags of popcorn and packages of hot cocoa along with other treats of your choosing. One of my favorite places to get special treats and snacks is Cost Plus World Market. You can shop online or in store. They have a lot of unique, really fun items and great stuff for gift baskets. The last addition to the Christmas Box is a movie. The movie in our box this year is Smallfoot. The Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack just released on December 11th and is now available in stores and online. This special edition includes an exclusive Yeti Set Go Sing-Along version you can play or you can choose the theatrical version. This is a fabulous feature if you have little kiddos around. Their favorite part of movies is the music.
Smallfoot is an animated adventure for all ages, with fun new music by Zendaya & Common and featuring an all-star cast, “Smallfoot” turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti (Channing Tatum) finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human! News of the “smallfoot,” Percy (James Corden), throws the simple Yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village. This is an epic story about friendship and courage!
“Smallfoot” will also be available on Movies Anywhere. Using the free Movies Anywhere app and website, consumers can access all their eligible movies by connecting their Movies Anywhere account with their participating digital retailer accounts.
I’m still gathering all of the items for my crate and will be posting a picture later this week. Make sure you add Smallfoot to your holiday shopping list. It’s sure to be your family’s new favorite holiday film!
