A personalised Christmas Eve box is a wonderful personal take on the newest craze. Believed to be inspired by the German tradition of opening gifts on Christmas Eve, the Christmas Eve box is a nod to this, without taking from the British Christmas Day celebrations. The personalised Christmas box can be used in so many ways. It could contain individually wrapped gifts or it could become the wrapping itself. Don't forget to check our design tips for our favourite ways that you can add the personalised Christmas Eve box to your annual customs.

The box is made from sturdy card which is 3 mm thick. This is hand cut and assembled by our amazing craftsmen. Your design is printed on the lid of the box, in full glorious colour. Our printing technicians use a modern, deep infusion technology. This bonds the eco-friendly inks deep into the fibres of the material which results in a long-lasting, high definition print. You choose the outer of the box (the unprinted parts) from our selection of 14 different options. This includes 12 colours and two patterned options. You can also choose the inner lining colour from soft pink, pale blue, ivory beige or black. Lined with beautiful soft-touch Suede Vision, your personalised Christmas Eve box is crafted expertly and with love, just like in Santa's Grotto.
There are multiple ways in which you can adopt this Christmas Eve tradition. We love the idea of making it a morning event and filling your personalised Christmas box with family things. A festive film, some snacks, a Yuletide story and even some tasty hot chocolate. It paves the way to have a proper family day all snuggled up before the excitement of Christmas morning kicks in. Use your favourite family photo of the preceding year, or if you have a great picture from last Christmas, this would also be a great idea. You could even use multiple pictures and make a Christmas montage.
Another one of our favourite ideas is to incorporate this into their bedtime routine. Fill with things like pyjamas and slippers, maybe even a festive smelling bath product. You could also add a storybook and some reindeer food, along with a mince pie to leave out for Santa, and a gingerbread biscuit to have with some milk before bed. You can use the personalised Christmas Eve box as a 'preparing for Santa's visit' activity. You can use photos of each recipient on their own box so that they know which is theirs.
