So What Is A Christmas Eve Box?
You purchase a box, fill it with treats, and then wrap the package to give to your children on Christmas Eve. It is truly that simple.
We adore this tradition in our household, and it appears to be gaining popularity! It may sound costly, but it is not, and it is well worth it when you see their cute cheeks light up.
Each year, our children push us to open just one item early, which is why the Christmas Eve box idea is ideal.
You don’t have to spend money on a beautiful box; you can either pick one up for free at your local shoe store or create your own out of free wood from your local woodpile!
So What Do I Put In A Christmas Eve Box?
You can put anything you want in your child’s box; there are countless possibilities, and it doesn’t have to be new or costly.
Most nonprofit shops sell small items that you may fill your box with, so you won’t have to worry about blowing your budget.
We always add a book in ours since our children enjoy curling up on the sofa for storytime. I’ve prepared a small list of ideas for you to consider. I hope you enjoy them.
- Slippers & Pajamas

All you require is…

You may print here a lot of designs to select from, or you could write it yourself if you didn’t have a printer.
A Letter From Santa
Finally, a letter from Santa! For free, you may either write to him by the 6th of December using the Royal Mail address or print one off here. This idea is committed to making your home magical this Christmas.
