What to put in a Christmas Eve Box

With the countdown to Christmas starting, we take a look at some products to pop into a Christmas Eve Box.

Christmas Eve Boxes have become increasingly popular in recent years – you can even buy your own ready-made ones. However, many people choose to make their own, more personal boxes. From slippers and pyjamas through to sweet treats and maybe even a small toy, these are a great way to get into the festive spirit. In our household, our Christmas Eve boxes usually comprise new pyjamas, slippers, a DVD, chocolate Santa and popcorn ready to snuggle down as a family and watch a movie before bed.

Christmas Eve Box Ideas

The Box Itself

First things first, you need a box! A shoe box or similar suffices in our household, wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper to make it look more festive. If you’re feeling more extravagant, Not on The High Street have a great collection of boxes and bags, and you can even have them personalised! In fact, you can also buy ready made Christmas Eve Boxes from there too!


If you are looking for slippers, you cant go wrong with Moccis®. You won’t want to take these hand sewn Swedish Moccasins off your feet! Ethically produced, Moccis® are the first and only luxury hand sewn Swedish moccasins to bring fashion, function, and fun to adult and children’s indoor footwear. A slipper sock design make them cosy yet practical. The leather sole is soft yet slip free, and what’s more, they are machine washable!

Moccis® have been approved by Podiatrists for babies, children and even adults as they are the closest thing to being barefoot, making them perfect for muscle development whilst at the same time helping to avoid injury.

A Christmas Film

There are plenty of feel good Christmas Movies to choose from to help get you into the festive season. If you don’t want a Christmas themed movie, how about one of the latest releases such as Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (pre-order from Amazon here). The new Elton John Movie Rocketman is bound to be another favourite (find it here)!

Children will be spoilt for choice the Nativity Four Film Collection (click here to buy). With all four films to choose from, these are perfect to snuggle down the family and get into the festive spirit.

For older children and adults, have a look at Mrs Browns Boys’ Christmas Corkers, available from 11th November. This promises fans laughs a plenty!


There is nothing nicer than settling down in a brand new pair of pyjamas, and this has become another favourite Christmas tradition in our house! From matchy sets for the whole family to onesies, there are plenty of different styles to choose from. One of my favourites for the little ones comes from Frugi (https://www.welovefrugi.com). Made from organic cotton, these super soft pyjamas not only look super cute, they wash really well and retain their shape! They also offer some of their sets in adult sizes too, so the whole family can get involved!

Hot Water Bottle

An extra special winter warmer comes in the shape of the gorgeous extra long hot water bottles from Potwells. Three times in length longer than average water bottles, these come in a variety of designs including a unicorn, dragon and zebra, and are perfect for keeping the cold at bay. Perfect for snuggle time on the sofa, they are also super handy if you get cold at work or on the commute to work. Cute, soft and super cuddly, these will put a smile on anyones face this Christmas.

There are plenty of treats to choose to add into your Christmas Eve box. You only need to head to your local grocery shop to find a plethora of goodies! You cant go wrong with Haribo, who also have some fantastic Christmas bags.

You could also pop in some luxury hot chocolate and marshmallows to enjoy! Popcorn is another favourite – make sure you check out Joe & Seph’s such as this gourmet collection.
