Do you do them?
Do you let the kids pick which gift they want to open or do you have a specific gift you let them open?

We always done a Christmas Eve gift and let them play with it for a while before bed. I usually let them pick their own, I try to influence which one lol. But this year I'm going to put together one of those Christmas Eve boxes. With new P.J's, slippers, a cocoa mug(they have been wanting one of their own), maybe a little stuffed animal , and a cocoa reindeer bag thing.

My girls get pjs on Christmas Eve. I wrap it in different paper than what their other gifts are in and label the back of it.

 We do Christmas eve presents. It's a tradition. Each kid always get pjs, slippers, a movie, their favorite movie snack, and an orament reflective of what they were into that year. Then they get in their pjs, we watch the movies, snack, and put their new ornaments on the tree :)
