Christmas Eve Box Ideas: A New Christmas Eve Tradition



Mums and dads, it’s that time of year where your kids can finally get the presents they’ve been asking for (probably since August or May, maybe even October?). Sadly, they’ll have to wait until Christmas day to open them. Or do they…?

Parents know Christmas is all about presents and every kid knows exactly where to find them too (that’s right, hiding them in suitcases or boxes inside boxes doesn’t work anymore!).

If you’re a prepared mum, you’ve most likely been gathering your presents to avoid the hellish ordeal that is Christmas Eve shopping. For the rest of us lost souls, we wander the highstreets and browse online for last minute deals and bargains.

Though there is much more to Christmas than gifts, children wake up on Christmas morning hoping they’ve made it on to Santa’s nice list, with sacks filled with presents. But this doesn’t stop their prying hands from rummaging every crevice in the house to find them beforehand.

We have a solution to keep them occupied for one more day: give them a present before Christmas. Yes, it’s a simple as that. Give them something they can do on Christmas Eve every year. We give you the holy grail of early bird gifts: our Personalised Christmas Eve Boxes!

Individually handmade, expertly personalised with your child’s Name and presented with an adorable heart-shaped gift tag (need we say more?). Imagine your child’s face when they realise they’re getting gifts even before Christmas day – that’s two lots of presents (and the aunts, uncles and grandparents haven’t even been over yet). It’ll stop them from turning the house upside down and could even become a Christmas Eve tradition.

If you need a bit of inspiration about what to put inside the Christmas Eve Box, have a browse of our suggestions below. Then again, you can always fill it with chocolate (you can never go wrong with chocolate).

As the keepsake boxes can be a gift for the whole family, how about filling it with one our personalised tree decorations? There's the Mr and Mrs Reindeer plaque, a baby’s First Christmas Hanging Decoration, Engraved Snowflakes and much more to hang on your Christmas tree before the big day. Why not make it a Christmas Eve tradition and add a new ornament for each member of the family every year?

Need more gift ideas to fill the keepsake boxes with? How about our Personalised Giant Christmas Sack? Besides the fact it’ll be filled-to-bursting with more gifts, it’s a behemoth 85 x 55cm! Or you can go with tradition and pop in one of our Personalised Christmas Stockings, available in a variety of styles from Rudolph, Christmas owls, penguins, and elves. But if you really want to surprise your tots with something extra special…our Disney Books are designed especially for your child as they’re written into their own heroic story!

We’ve saved the best to last with this one. Our Personalised Christmas Box for Kids is uniquely designed just for your little one. Boasting a generously-sized star at the centre of this keepsake, you can watch in sheer amazement as your child receives an early present from Santa with their Name gorgeously featured on the front, just for them.

Or if you're creating a Christmas Eve Box especially for kids, how about our Personalised Chocolate Bars featuring their name? Or if they just love to help mummy in the kitchen, our Slate Cake Stand will get them suited and booted to bake some delicious gingerbread men! You can even ensure they’re productive during the festive holidays with our colourful selection of Personalised stationery.

A Christmas Eve Box idea filled with presents will send your little ones soaring with excitement for the big day. Make it a Christmas Eve tradition to share with all the family every year, or fill it with your favourite Christmas photos and create a keepsake you can always add to.
