Christmas Eve is one week away, which means Christmas Eve boxes are selling out FAST. Whether this a tradition in your household or it's new for 2020, it's worth spending good money initially – on the box – so that you can reuse it for years to come. We suggest buying a personalised box, actually, for that personal touch. What else will you need? Filling (moss or tissue paper) and obviously, gifts to pop inside. By gifts we really mean small buys from a Christmas bath bomb to a hot chocolate making set, a Christmas DVD and some festive pyjamas. 

Keep scrolling for everything you need to buy online to make them a Christmas Eve box this year. Don't hesitate – you've not got long to order to guarantee arrival before Christmas. Buying online also means you won't have to queue at the shops – just press pay and pop your feet up until the delivery man arrives.

1. Buy the box

First of all, you'll need to choose a box depending on how much you'll be putting inside it. Some boxes are plain so that you can personalise them yourself, while others come personalised. Either way, you can re-use all of these Christmas Eve boxes below, every single year. 

2. Fill the box

You're going to need something to fill your Christmas Eve box with, other than toys and treats of course. We suggest either tissue paper, curly moss or shredded paper. 

3. Find (and buy) the gifts
