Christmas Eve boxes are quite a new thing in our family.  We have probably been doing them for maybe 4-5 years.  I think I saw the idea first on Facebook.  I love Christmas and therefore loved the idea of giving something Christmassy on Christmas Eve and its something my children really look forward to now. 

 

You don’t need to spend lots of money buying a pre-made  box with the contents included.  You can easily create your own.  You might be wondering what you can put in them so I have compiled a list of suggestions for you to create your very own Christmas Eve boxes.  The beauty of these is that you can spend as much or as little as you want to, you don’t have to buy everything on the list.

 

Where can I find a nice box

 

So first things first, you need something to put the items in.  

 

A Christmas bag - If you don’t want to spend lots on a box you can simply use one of the larger Christmas gift bags and use that, it doesn’t have to be a box.  These can be purchased in loads of different shops so they are really easy to get hold of.

 

Boxes - Poundland have a variety of different sized boxes which would be perfect for a Christmas Eve box.  I have also seen other stores selling nice boxes, Homesense, Wilkos, Amazon to name a few.

 

Wooden Crate - If you’re looking for something more sturdy though a wooden crate is a great idea and these can be bought from most home stores such as Dunelm, Homesense, The Range etc.  

 

Hamper basket - These are also a great idea for Christmas Eve boxes and they can be bought from lots of different stores such as Amazon, Dunelm, Poundland, Wilkos and more.

 

What shall I put in the box

 

When filling your box or whatever you decided to buy to hold your contents consider the age of your child/children so you can make sure the contents are suitable.  Here is my list of ideas:

 

  1. Christmas nightwear

  2. Hot chocolate

  3. Reindeer food

  4. Christmas themed Sweets

  5. Christmas themed Chocolates

  6. Christmas glass

  7. Christmas plastic cup
