I had seen this December 1st Box Tradition popping up on the internet here and there over the past few years and decided to give it a whirl this year.
What is a December 1st Box?
Basically on December 1st, you kick off the Christmas season with a box that has items for some quality family time, Christmas activities and maybe a few holiday-themed goodies for the kiddos. Here is my plan for our December 1st celebration! Also, if you are reading this after December 1st, but still want to have a little holiday kick-off, you could do it on December 15th or whatever day works best for you!
Don’t the December 1 Box is something that has to cost a lot of money. Just think of it as a sweet way to start the holidays in your family.
Our December 1st Box Tradition Plan:
Invite your special December 1 Box Guest
Our Elf on the Shelf, Alvin, will make his special appearance on December 1st.
What to wear
Put on our new family Christmas PJs!
What to drink at your December 1 Party
Make some hot chocolate and warm milk for the baby.
After Dinner Activity
After dinner, I picked up this cute little Mini Gingerbread House Village for us to decorate at Target.

I think this will be a really fun way to kick off the Christmas Season in our house! With two toddlers, the Christmas excitement will be at an all-time high this year!
