What To Put in Your Christmas Eve Box

Posted on: 14-Nov-2018 15:54:35

Firstly a Christmas Eve box is a box or crate made to give someone usually to share with them, to enjoy Christmas a little early and get them excited for Christmas Day. You usually put their favourite Christmas film in there, snacky bits and pieces the person will enjoy, games, possibly fluffy socks and whatever you want to put in your Christmas Eve box.

With Christmas Eve boxes you can cater them to anyone you know, this was to give just a few ideas as to what to put into the box. I’m actually going to be making one for myself so I can relax on the day before Christmas. I hope you will attempt to create a Christmas eve box for that special someone or special people in your life.

A little side note quick - If you want to add the magic I’d suggest getting a personalised Santa letter for the person you’re giving this to, children will believe it’s Father Christmas himself, teens will either get embarrassed which is a golden story for Christmas or you can spark up their little bits of magic left inside of them. Your partner will find it hilarious and sweet you went to that extra mile just for them. Your grandparents will find it funny as well and will spark up their youthful days that they miss. No matter what a personalised Santa letter will always bring a happy big smile.

You can actually get one on this website for only £4.99. Let’s bring that smile back!
