HOW TO CREATE A CHRISTMAS EVE BOX

On the hunt for a truly special standout children’s gift? This could be exactly what you’re looking for

Hand on heart, if you want to win at festive gift giving, try a Christmas Eve box. Yes, it’s a new tradition for most of us, but it’s well worth adopting – I did it last year for the first time and I’ve never seen my children so excited to open a present. All you need to include are a few of the following: pyjamas, slippers, books, cuddly toys, bath bombs or chocolate treats. Also, side note: don’t think it’s only for the littlest members of the family – even teenagers can’t resist the magic of a Christmas Eve box.
