To help the kids with counting down till Christmas and wanting to open presents I get small inexpensive gifts for as many days before Christmas as I like. I usually do two weeks. I buy small erasers, pencils, sweets, etc. and wrap each individually. I then get string or yarn and attach each wrapped gift along the string. I attach the whole thing to a wall horizontally. I then tie a small pair of scissors and tack it close by so every morning the kids can clip one gift off and get a nice little surprise. My kids loved this so much that I still do this even though they are now teenagers.
