Christmas Eve Box Ideas for Adults and Kids

We just LOVE the excitement of Christmas morning; when you come downstairs and see gifts laid out under the tree and (fingers crossed) fresh snow outside. It’s magical.

But, what if you didn’t have to wait until 25th December to open a little festive treat? That’s where Christmas Eve boxes come in.

We reveal the best Christmas Eve box ideas for adults and kids to start the fun early…

What are Christmas Eve boxes?

As you may have guessed, a Christmas Eve box is full of thoughtful and personalised treats that you can open on 24th December. Originally a German tradition, they have become increasingly popular in recent years and can be filled with everything from sweets to games, festive pyjamas and more. Gifting a Christmas Eve box is an extra special way to show a loved one how much you care.
