Hanging up stockings, leaving out a snack for Rudolph – excitement is in the air on Christmas Eve! But there’s no reason all the magic should be left for the day ahead. Christmas Eve boxes have boomed in popularity in recent years and are a great way to crank up the festivities while keeping the kids distracted and (hopefully) worn out.
There are no particular rules on what should be in your Christmas Eve box – choose anything that will occupy their time as your prep the turkey or stop them sneakily opening a present early. Popular gifts ideas for kids Christmas Eve boxes can include festive pyjamas or a cosy throw, a Christmas film, games, personalised ornaments, sweet treats and bath-time bubbles.
Here is our pick of presents for little ones to enjoy before Santa’s arrival.
