    christmas eve hamper ideas for 10 year old boy 21st Nov 17 at 7:26 AM
    Looking for suggestion of items to put in a Christmas eve hamper for 10 year old boy.

    Budget around 10 (might need to be a bit more this year) but for that I want 3-4 items Happy for the item(s) to be second hand.

    Previous years I have gone in poundland/B&M etc and got some cheap toy sets but hes too old for that now, he wont have any interest in them. He is even going to pick his own pjs for the box this year as he didn't like the ones I picked for him last year So I would like to include a couple of things that will be a surprise for him.

    I for one have never heard of this custom till I read it on here. Where did it come from? Neither my son or my daughter do hampers for their children

    I've only ever read it on here and came across it for the first time perhaps 8 years ago or so (going on I'd read about them for a couple of years before doing one and DS was 10 or 11 and he's now 17).

    This year for the first time, I've picked up a box that was labelled 'christmas eve box' but I think the shop in an independent one, however my sis-i-l has picked up one in Asda so sounds like it's becoming more common.
