Anyone remember a film about a young boy living with an "aunt" set in England

I thought the story was, "A Christmas Memory" with Geraldine Paige. The one I am looking for is about a young boy, living with an "aunt" or some female relative. I remember it being in colour. They were unable to buy each other Christmas presents, so they make each other kites. The boy goes to the movies and comes home to tell the old lady all about the movie. He asks her why won't she come with him and she says she likes the way he tells the story much better. The reality is she has not enough money for them both to go, so she sends him instead.I believe it was set in England/Wales and I remember a lighthouse being in it.

Many Thanks for any ideas.
