Ah, Christmas Eve – that magical night when anticipation fills the air. A time for cosying up with the family, mugs of hot chocolate with all the wrapping done…HA! More like the house is a tip, the wrapping is far from done and kids are climbing the walls, desperate to open just one present. 

This is where our filled Christmas Eve Gift Box for families and friends could be the perfect gift. 

What is a Christmas Eve box? 

It’s a box filled with festive treats and surprises to start the festive fun early. Think of it as a prelude to the festivities, that adds an extra touch of magic to Christmas for both kids and adults.  

It’s also a great ploy to keep the kids entertained while Mum and Dad crack on with any last-minute jobs. 

What can I put in a Christmas Eve box? 

You can fill the box with anything you like. From games and tasty treats to snuggly pjs and story books, you can make it completely unique to suit the lucky recipient and their family. The sky’s the limit!  

But if you’re stuck for inspiration then look no further, we’ve got our very own ‘Create Your Own’ Family Christmas Box – all you have to do is choose the thoughtful treasures that you know they’ll love. 

Christmas Eve Box Ideas for Kids  

1. Pyjamas  

First and foremost, if you’re looking to buy a box for kids or even a baby, a pair of pyjamas is a MUST. This is the Christmas Eve Box staple. 

2. Milk Chocolate Gingerbread Man 

A sweet treat is always a winner. This mini chocolate gingerbread man delivers just enough sugar to steer them away from the tub of Quality Street! 

3. Books 

Whether it’s a sticker book for little ones, Draw With Rob for the budding artists or a festive book full of magic like Bobby Dean Saves Christmas, books are a perfect addition to a Christmas Eve box. 

Christmas Eve Box Ideas for Teens 

1. Uno Flip  

There’s no better gift than the gift of fun. And who doesn’t love a bit of Uno? Well this is the latest version, and we love it! For kids 7+ 

2. Festive Cookie Baking Kit 

Get those bored teens baking with this ‘Dough It Your Elf’ Christmas cookie mix.  

3. Pamper Presents 

A Spacemask or a fizzing bath bomb are perfect Christmas Eve Box ideas for those teens who just want a bit of ‘me time’.  

Christmas Eve Box Ideas for Families 

1. Monopoly Deal Game 

What better way to start the festivities than with some good old fashioned family fun. Gather up the troops and get competitive with Monopoly Deal – a compact version of the board game.  

2. Chocolate Spoons 

A steaming mug hot chocolate is also somewhat of a staple at this time of year. So including a Hot Chocolate Spoon for each family member is a no brainer. There’s milk choc and marshmallows for the kids and a decadent Rum and Dark choc for the adults. Mmmmmmmm. 

3. Mini Mince Pies 

Those festive-loving-game-playing-hot-chocolate-drinkers are going to need some snacks for snuffling. These Mini Cranberry and Orange Mince Pies are incredibly morish, so best to buy a couple of boxes to be on the safe side. 

Christmas Eve Box Ideas for Adults 

1. Cashmere Socks 

Whilst the kids get excited about their new festive pjs, don’t forget to include a pair of the softest socks in town for the adults. Because their feet deserve the very best. 

2. A Festive Tipple 

Let them raise a glass and bring some merriment to the evening with one of our delectable festive drinks. Whether it’s some warming mulled wine, a nip of Port or Winter Gin, or a glass of some non-alcoholic fizz (no heavy heads) we have the finest selection. 

3. This Works Dream Team Set 

Give them the gift of sleep…or the closest thing to it. This set contains a pillow spray and a roll on, to aid the perfect night’s sleep ahead of the big day. 

4. Extract Ground Coffee 

And why not throw in a bag of the very best coffee to perk them up? Come Christmas morn they may well need it. 

Christmas Eve Box Ideas for Couples

1. Winter Scent Candle 

Fill their home with this warming aroma; with notes of cinnamon, clove, zesty orange and ginger, this is Christmas in a candle.  

2. Pol Roger Champagne 

Let them toast the season with a bottle of the finest fizz. If you can’t crack open the good stuff at Christmas, then when can you eh? We also have an alcohol-free fizz available too. 

3. Tasty Festive Treats 

This year we have upped our festive foodie treat game. But the big question is, will you choose to include our Winter Spiced Orange and Cranberry Shortbread, our Chocolate Reindeers or the Round Star Christmas Cake? Not Sure? Then go for all three! 

Hopefully our rundown of the finest and the best items to include in a Christmas Eve Box has helped.
