With a range of festive designs and colours, each Christmas Eve box can be wonderfully personalised with your child’s name.
If you haven’t heard of a Christmas Eve Box, where have you been? The Christmas Eve Box tradition is rapidly growing in popularity and is becoming a regular pre-Christmas gift before the big day. They’re a great way to create excitement but what actually is a Christmas Eve Box?
A Christmas Eve Box is a popular pre-Christmas gift for kids (adults can join in too). As the name suggests, a Christmas Eve Box is a box given on Christmas Eve. It is normally filled with treats and was created from the desire to open that one present on Christmas Eve. The box is beautifully decorated, usually with a festive design and is designed to get everyone in the festive spirit in the final countdown to Santa’s arrival. If your kids can’t contain themselves with anticipation and excitement for Christmas Day, a Christmas Eve Box may be the perfect pre-Christmas treat.
