Make a Christmas Eve Box For Your Kids to Open on 12 midnight!

Christmas is the most exciting time of the year, especially if you have little children at home that are so excited about Santa coming to visit!

For youngsters, the holiday season is a time filled with the spirit of magic, awe, and enthusiasm. It is also the ideal time to gather the entire family together to celebrate the traditions that have been passed down through the generations, spend more time together just taking pleasure in one other’s company, and create new memories.

A Christmas Eve Box is a festive tradition that is gaining ground all over the world– what a great way to bring family and friends closer together!

It isn’t exactly another gift to add to the list, it is more of a preparation kit for kids to enjoy their Christmas Day, and includes a few of the staples that most kids get every year anyway.  It just makes Christmas that little bit more magical for kids and parents alike!  Plus it is exciting for kids to be able to open something before they go to bed, all excited for the big day to come.

What Exactly Is A Christmas Eve Box?

When you have a Christmas Eve Box, the evening before Christmas may be just as exciting as Christmas morning itself. On Christmas Eve, the box will often include sweets and little presents for the children, which they will be able to unwrap and enjoy. It’s not meant to be a Christmas present, but it could help youngsters forget about all the presents that are under the tree that they can’t open just yet.

In a nutshell, the purpose of Christmas Eve Boxes is to encourage family bonding and festive enjoyment for all members of the household on the evening before Christmas. Think of it as your own supply pack for a night of fun with the family!

What should I include in a Christmas Eve Box?

It really depends on how much you are wanting/willing to spend, but here are a selection of ideas:
