Hi LW, I have a son (11) and the things that have surprised over the years have been;

When he was 8 he genuinely didn’t care if he went to a grotto or not. That he didn’t want a shop Xmas cake, he wanted a home made chocolate log (that had me up until 2am one year), and that the only time he has got upset is when Father Christmas had brought him more presents than FC had brought me. So the following year I made sure FC brought us equal amounts of presents (he didn’t know that my new swimming cosie was from Tesco sale & my running gloves were 2.99 😊 )

Home made decorations are better than shop ones.  Try a mix of cooking & making things together, and little surprises, and you’ll have a great time.  It’ll be perfect
