19 Dec [CLOSED] Christmas Eve Essentials
In less than a week, we’ll be celebrating Christmas and I am already looking forward to putting the beds in the lounge, binge-watching cheesy Christmas movies, filling up on snacks and enjoying some time with my family. If you have the same thing in mind for Christmas eve, you’ll love my list of Christmas Eve Essentials.
With so many people wanting Christmas PJs last year, I am very happy to see that more brands have extended their Christmas range to include cute PJs for the whole family. If matching PJs isn’t for everyone, and your husband (like mine) is the Grinch, get some cosy Christmas socks, hats, or even red t-shirts.
Christmas Stockings and Snacks
I love stuffing everyone’s Christmas stockings to open and enjoy on Christmas Eve. I usually include a snack, book or DVD and of course, a Santa’s hat! Although we usually have a bowl of popcorn to share, everyone’s Christmas stocking includes their favourite chocolate, or pack of sweets to enjoy later.
Little Eskimo Face Mask
Perhaps age is catching up on me, but late nights have started to show on my face, and considering we have Christmas lunch planned with the family, the next day – I can’t afford baggy eyes. This year, I am including a Little Eskimo Ice Mask in my own Christmas stocking, to wear during our movie night. The coolness helps to ease puffiness and reduces redness, while tightening pores and revealing radiant looking skin.
Santa’s Milk and Cookies
Some may insist it’s the most important thing on Christmas Eve, so don’t you dare forget about those cookies and a fresh glass of milk, for Santa. If you’re feeling extra festive, why not put out some snacks for his reindeer too?
Of course, no Christmas eve is complete without a variety of cheesy Christmas films. I am a sucker for the Grinch, and The Holiday – which are your favourites?

I am the creator behind By Megan Kelly, mom of two boys, named Axl (4-years old) and Eli (1-year old), and local business owner of Dr. Design. I live on copious amounts of coffee, spend my free time listening to podcasts while I garden or journal, and really enjoy baking fresh treats for my family. On the weekends, you’ll likely find me exploring our local city, looking for new family-friendly places for our kids, but that’s only if I am not already shouting at the soccer on TV. I support Tottenham and enjoy pretending to know what I am doing in the Fantasy League, but really I am just in it for the laughs. I can be bribed with chocolate and will never admit to having too much makeup – although, I probably do.
