How to Create a Magical Christmas Eve Box

*This is a collaborative post

Families have different traditions around Christmas time and one of our main traditions is creating a Christmas Eve Box for the children to enjoy on Christmas Eve. Some parents may find this excessive and that's ok (each to their own) but I love this tradition and I save money elsewhere in order to do it. Christmas Eve is my absolute favourite day of the year and anything that can add to that magic gets the thumbs up from me.

So this year, I have spent time creating what I believe is the perfect Christmas Eve box. I will be packing it up soon and sending it to the North Pole ready for our elf to deliver on Christmas Eve morning. We spend most of Christmas Eve at home and I like our house to be filled with fun and laughter and I'm hoping some of the items in our box will help us with this.

A Bespoke and Personalised Christmas Eve Box


I just love these personalised Christmas Eve Boxes from GettingPersonal.co.uk. I have ordered the same design for each of my children and couldn't be happier. The quality is fantastic and I can see them lasting a long time. I just wish I had bought something like this sooner! Boxes are available in two designs - the 'Special Delivery' option that I have ordered or Sleigh Mail Delivery. Priced at a very reasonable £18.99 the last date for delivery is 16th December (standard) or 19th December (next day delivery).

What to put inside your Christmas Eve Box


I would recommend your first port of call to be Tesco Direct. They have created a dedicated Christmas Eve box page on their website which features over 200 ideas. Many of the items are eligible for 'click and collect' too so you can order online and collect from your local store after 3pm the following day. This is ideal for me as Steve works next door to a Tesco and can collect on his way home from work. Here's a few of the items I have ordered from Tesco to give you some ideas:
  • Finding Dory DVD 
  • The Midnight Gang book by David Walliams
  • The Christmasaurus book by Tom Fletcher
  • 3 x packs of colouring pencils
  • Lego Winter Wonderland Sticker book
  • Nativity DVD
  • Christmas Craft Kid (create a Christmas door hanger)
  • Christmas Nativity colour in snowstorm
  • Santa cookie cutters
  • Gingerbread House Kit
  • Wooden Dominoes

That seems like a lot when I write it down but it was really very reasonable and will be split between three boxes.

I also picked up some chocolate coins and three elf milk bottles (very sweet) from Home Bargains for 99p each and I couldn't resist these reindeer antlers (also 99p from Home Bargains) for a bit of fun. I'll be buying a Christmas themed bath bomb from Lush next week too and then our boxes will be complete.

My children will be receiving their Christmas Eve boxes in the morning this year (Elf on the Shelf - take note) as I want them to enjoy the contents throughout the day. I am so excited to see their faces and to spend the day watching movies, baking cookies for Father Christmas, reading and enjoying a few Christmas crafts together. Our elf will then visit one last time to deliver new Christmas PJs at bed time :-) 

Let me know if you'll be making a Christmas Eve box this year and what you're putting inside.

  1. Those boxes are really lovely, some of the nicest I've seen. I'd like those for my 2. Love what you've filled your boxes with too! Great ideas. Let me know what you think if the Tom Fletcher book, I've been wondering if it would be good for Arlo. You really do give your kids the best childhood, they are lucky to have you as a mam!

  2. We have Xmas eve boxes too, I think they are fab at keeping the kids entertained as they are so excited for Christmas. I put really similar items into my kids boxes too, a new film, some sweets and hot chocolate sachets, colouring books and pencils for the little two and lush bath bombs. These boxes look amazing & are such a lovely thing to use each year xx
