Its not about spoiling them for us. Its a family thing where we can all open the box and read the book, wear our Xmas pjs and watch a film. Our children and very young and its lost on them but we wanted to start the tradition.

Ours isnt full of presents, they come tomorrow.

Each to their own I say, its something Ive done for my youngest today for first time, shes 11. My reasoning is I know shes giddy/anxious/excited about tomorrow and anything I can do today to keep her calm is worth it, shes had new Christmas pyjamas and socks which shes now wearing whilst chilling watching beauty and the beast , it had a bath bomb in it so shes had a nice long relaxing soak in tub which will be good for her and gave me a bit of time to do other things, sweets, a pen and thankyou cards to write for family members tomorrow for gifts she will receive and a mug and hot choc and marshmallows which we will have before bed.

We've been doing one for our son since he was tiny. He gets new pyjamas, which he'd have got anyway, a chocolate lolly, hot chocolate, a christmas book and a colouring set. We don't open presents until the afternoon on christmas day, so it keeps him entertained in the morning too.

exactly

my grandson has one. Matching PGs a bedtime story and a mug of hot chocolate

I think it is nice that new generations have new traditions

Our boys have just opened theirs (age 7 and 19). Theyve got pjs, a cup, hot chocolate, marshmallows and reindeer dust. We started it a couple of years ago and Is one of the few things the eldest will join in with the youngest. Not spoiling them but just something for us to do as a family and then we watch a film.

I have given my kids a bag for Christmas Eve since they where babies. Always contained new pyjamas and a treat. As they got older the year became a VHS and then a DVD we could all watch together, usually a Disney, and some chocolate coins.
My daughter now 18 cant wait to open her later and my son who is 21 is looking forward to getting his new pjs when he finishes work and sitting down with our take away and watching Harry Potter 😀🌲

Just to clarify my spoiling comment was VERY tongue in cheek
