How to Make Your Own Christmas Eve Box

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Christmas is just around the corner, and your attention is probably turning to how you can make this year extra special for your little ones.

You may well know that Christmas Eve boxes have become popular in recent years. This new tradition stems from how the Germans celebrate Christmas by opening their gifts on 24th December rather than the 25th. The boxes can come in all shapes and sizes with various gifts and items to fill them.

You can buy pre-packed Christmas Eve boxes, but if you’re looking to do something a little more homemade, then we hope this easy guide will provide you with some inspiration. So whether you want to create a Christmas Eve box on a budget or make something a little extra special, we’ve got an option for you.

Let’s take a look!
