A Christmas Eve box is a collection of goodies that you gift to someone on 24 December. It's a thoughtful way to make the night before Christmas extra special, by giving kids and adults alike a small selection of little gifts. And the actual box doesn't have to be anything fancy, it can be as simple as an old shoebox decorated with Christmas crafts.
Gifting a Christmas Eve box has become a popular tradition over recent years. Not only does it stretch out the pressie giving that little bit further, it also acts as the perfect prelude to the big day itself.
The real joy of a Christmas Eve box is that they can be personalised for each child. You can fill it with all the little things they love and also break up the excitement before Christmas Day. This adds a bit of festive magic to the night before Christmas, and may even help them sleep a little better before the big day.
