Family Christmas Eve Box Ideas
While it has long been a tradition in many households to hang a stocking above the fireplace, Christmas Eve boxes are the latest trend emerge in more recent years.
A Christmas Eve box is essentially a box that’s stocked with festive treats and gifted to someone on Christmas Eve (usually children) to build up anticipation for big day.
While you can often buy a Christmas Eve box online, making one of your own is simple and it creates a more personalised touch. Here are some tips to get you started:
