Fun Christmas Eve Box Ideas

If you’re struggling to contain your overly excited kids the night before Christmas, behold our fun Christmas Eve box ideas!

The Christmas Eve Box made its debut a couple of years ago, and we understood it originated from a German tradition of opening presents on Christmas Eve. We also know how hard it is to hold kids back from their presents and toddlers in particular! Bribery is the best way to avoid tantrums. Christmas Eve boxes have now become an excuse for starting Christmas the night before with some wee gifts and activities.

Replacing those raggedy stockings hanging from the mantlepiece, our festive fun Christmas Eve box ideas beautifully decorated and giving them a personalized Christmas Eve box will make the special event that bit more magical. All children love containers especially with their name on it.

Christmas Eve Box Ideas for Toddlers and Kids

The great thing about the Christmas Eve box idea is the fun part of coming up with filler ideas. For toddlers and smaller kids, the best ideas are those that surprise and delight and little sets of many goodies make it extra special. Giving the impression of bounty for toddlers and kids will love it!

  • Sweets and chocolate (of course!)
  • A new fancy toothbrush
  • Fruit and nuts
  • A Christmassy book or film
  • A set of Christmas pyjamas
  • Mini toys – sets of cars/trucks/animals are fun
  • A board game for the whole family to play!
  • Some fun bath toy for the evening bath
  • A personal letter from Santa Claus reassuring them they are on the good list


The sky’s the limit when it comes to personalized Christmas Eve box ideas! If you have a favourite image or photo, we can add it, plus your little one’s name and a message on our wooden boxes.

These boxes are long lasting and sturdy, and can be reused again and again, year after year.

Get inspired by these designs for personalized Christmas Eve box ideas. Choose a design or send in a photo, choose your box size and we can help with the writing overlay and design if needed. A lovely keepsake box idea for the rest of the year also.

If your kid is obsessed with trains, we can add their name to this free design found on Freepik.
