What Is A Christmas Eve Box?
Christmas Eve Boxes are boxes filled with small festive gifts given to children on Christmas Eve.
The purpose of a Christmas Eve box is to make Christmas Eve special for the child and to make it easier for the parents too.
All the items I place in my kids’ Christmas Eve Boxes are designed to be fun and festive for my kids but also serve the dual purpose of making Christmas Eve easier for me as a parent.
The items I choose aim to help my kids settle down, have some family bonding and quiet time, enjoy their bath and then get dressed in their newly gifted Christmas pyjamas and go to bed in a timely manner on Christmas Eve when they otherwise would be over excited about Christmas the next day.

How To Choose A Christmas Eve Box
The first thing you need when putting together a Xmas Eve Box is the box itself. The box can be as simple or as fancy as you like. If you are on a tight budget then you can use a plain cardboard box you may already have at home and cover it with Christmas paper. You can make your boxes customised for each child by printing out and pasting your children’s names onto the boxes.
Personalised Christmas Eve Boxes
If you don’t have a box handy to use at home then an affordable and cute option is one of these cardboard personalised Christmas Eve boxes. Being personalised elevates this box up a level and makes it special.
Personalised Wooden Christmas Eve Box
If budget is no issue for you then click HERE to see a comprehensive range of personalised wooden Christmas Eve boxes and crates.
These wooden boxes are absolutely stunning and can be used again each year. You could store Christmas decorations in these boxes throughout the rest of the year.
What To Put In A Christmas Eve Box For Kids
Christmas pyjamas are one of the most popular items to put into a Christmas Eve box.
Christmas PJs have the benefit of getting your child excited about getting changed into their pyjamas on Christmas Eve.
New and matching Christmas pyjamas are not only fun to wear for the kids but the whole family. Kids love dressing in matching outfits to their parents especially on special occasions such as Christmas Eve.
Matching Christmas pyjamas also have the advantage of making your Christmas Day photos of opening presents in the morning look festive, stylish and coordinated.
Last year, much to the delight of my kids, I also included a Christmas outfit for our pet dog in the kids Christmas Eve Box.
Christmas Bath Bombs & Christmas Bubble Bath
Including Christmas bubble bath, Christmas bath bombs or even just sparkly bath products in your kids’ Christmas Eve boxes will have them running to the bathroom eager for their Christmas Eve bath.
Our family absolutely loves Christmas books and they are always an item I include in the kids Christmas Eve Boxes.
Christmas books are festive, can be read together as a family or can provide the kids with a quiet time activity on Christmas Eve while the parents organise things for Christmas Day.
Christmas Soft Toy
If you are creating a Christmas Eve Box for toddlers adding in a Christmas themed soft toy is another good idea.
Allowing your child to take the new soft toy to bed with them will make getting your child into bed on Christmas Eve a lot easier than it would otherwise be.
Another unique and cute Christmas soft toy is the plush Christmas Gnome.
FAQs About Christmas Eve Boxes
Should I Wrap The Christmas Eve Box Gifts?
There are no definite rules about Christmas Eve boxes. Whether you wrap the gifts in them or not is totally up to you.
Personally I prefer NOT to wrap the gifts in the Christmas Eve boxes I create for my family. I save the gift wrapping for the Christmas Day presents. I just place the gifts into the decorated Christmas Eve box.
