- Christmas tree
- Rugs/cats into front of the fire
- Parcels on floor

Christmas busy books can involve lots of subjects, things to do with Christmas itself and also to do with the winter season, such as:
* The Nativity could show the manger, baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Shepherds, Wise Men, Star, animals - and angels of course.
* The Christmas season, with parcels, stars, Christmas tree, decorations such as baubles and garlands; stockings, Christmas puddings, roof tops, Father Christmas, sleigh, night sky, holly, ivy, mistletoe, glitter and reindeer.
* Winter: bare trees, snow, penguins, robins, coats, mittens, boots, hats, snowballs and snowman.
