Christmas Eve Box Ideas from Lockabox

Christmas Eve Box gift Ideas

Christmas Eve Boxes are steadily becoming a new Christmas tradition in many households and we’re here for it! It’s the perfect way to add festive cheer into the home and get the whole family excited for the big day. If you’ve never heard of a Christmas Eve Box don’t worry, they are simple yet the ideal additional present and with a Lockabox it can be made into a game for all the family. The excellence of Christmas Eve boxes is that you can fill them with anything you like and give them to anybody you like (we’re personally more excited about the box part). 

What to put in your Christmas Eve Box for kids: 

  • Pyjamas 
  • Cosy Socks
  • Slippers
  • Matching scarf and hat
  • Marshmallows
  • Hot Chocolate 
  • Christmas Mug 
  • Treats (cookies, peppermint bark, mince pies, candy canes, chocolate coins) 
  • Christmas movies (The Grinch, Elf, The Holiday, Love Actually, The Snowman, Home Alone)
  • Games (Monopoly deal, Cards, Cluedo, Uno, Pictionary)
  • Baking Equipment to make festive treats
  • Personalised baubles 
  • Stocking
  • Personalised Christmas Book
  • Letter from Santa 

What to put in your Christmas Eve Box for adults:

  • Mulled Wine
  • Whiskey
  • Gourmet popcorn
  • GU puddings
  • Lindor 
  • Chocolate Truffles
  • Face Masks
  • Nail Polish 
  • Scented candle 
  • Pyjamas
  • Slippers
  • Cosy Socks
  • Matching scarf and hat
  • Personalised baubles
  • Games (cards against humanity)

It doesn’t have to break the bank, you could have one for the whole family filled with games and snacks for you all to enjoy together!

As our Lockabox One needs to be opened using a three-digit code it’s easy to turn getting the code into a fun game. This will hopefully keep the kids entertained and hopefully quieter for longer with the run-up to Christmas Day. The possibilities are endless, riddles could be used to get the code or maybe a scavenger hunt. Christmas day can take a lot of preparation so how about getting the kids to help out to win the code then it will be a gift that just keeps on giving! 

What’s better is the lockabox can be used time and time again either for a Christmas eve box another year or as everyday lockable storage within your home. Alternatively, these past few years have been difficult, and for most it could be the first time the whole family is back together. So our top tip is to repurpose the Lockabox One the next day to keep phones locked away on the highly anticipated day so you’re really making the most out of your quality family time.
