Christmas Eve Box Ideas – What’s in the Christmas Eve Box This Year?

If you’re looking for some simple and fun ideas for your Christmas Eve Box then here are some ideas to help! I am sharing our Christmas Eve Box and hope it gives you some inspiration to make your Christmas Eve celebrations a little more fun! 

An Easy Christmas Eve Box 

So here is our Christmas Eve Box which was super fun to create. This was for a family of three and my daughter was 10 years old at the time. 

We started making an annual Christmas Eve boxes a few years ago and it’s always a lot of fun for Sylvia, John and I. You can see our 2016 Christmas Eve box here.

Christmas Eve Box Pyjamas

We always like to add a new pair of Pyjamas for Christmas. It’s something we enjoy getting a fresh pair of Pj’s and this month we were sent some fantastic PJ’s from the Pyjama Factory. You can see our Elf Pyjamas photo shoot here.

Next we have a movie and some treats. John loves shortbread and as we are a dog loving family we went for the Scottie Dog Shortbread tin.

I found the Swan Princess Christmas special in Poundland and we are going to watch this on Christmas Eve. We have a tin of Milo. Milo is a staple drink I had in New Zealand, similar to Hot chocolate and I’m really looking forward to opening this tin on Christmas Eve.

This year my mum gifted us a Nativity themed Jigsaw puzzle which will keep us busy as we enjoy the Christmas season. It’s always great to have a fun activity in your Christmas Eve Box.

We have an adorable Cheeky Elf from Thorntons which we were gifted. This is super cute and looks so tasty. We look forward to nibbling on this yummy chocolate treat on Christmas Eve.

Last but not least we have a gratitude Journal which we are going to use as a family. Each night we plan to write down one thing we are grateful for. It will be a great tradition to start. We also have a candle which will be lovely to use in our Nativity fish bowl on Christmas Eve.

What would you place in your Christmas Eve Box this year?

  1. I’ve been toying with the idea of a Christmas Eve box for my boyfriend but wasn’t sure I had enough ideas yet – I’d love to try Milo but I don’t think I’ve seen it in Scotland! Hope you have a lovely Christmas <3
