Found 7th Nov 2017
Hello
Does anyone know where I can get a reasonable priced Christmas eve box that's filled already? Hopefully with a personalised letter too?
Thanks
Louise

I have to admit I had never even heard of these until last year. I must be getting old. Just another example of the commercialisation of Christmas. Sorry op, no idea where you could get one but if my kid asked for one I would tell him to park it where the sun don't shine. Times they are a changing
Pretty soon we''ll be hearing about a "Boxing Day" box too.

Nonsense isn't it?

Ridiculous. That was what a stocking was when I was a kid. Just money money money
Christmas pjs, fluffy bed socks and a sachet of a nice hot chocolate and some marshmallows, job done

I always give my daughter a Christmas Eve present and it's always a new set of pjs (Christmas ones) and some fluffy socks. I just wrap them up all in one present and that's it.

If you want a box id reccomend making your own and just buying a storage basket from b&m for about £3. Buy a Christmas DVD, pjs and socks and lil treats and some hot chocolate. Will cost you a lot less then buying a premade one. Can even buy the clear plastic to wrap it in with a big bow for £1 quid at the works

I don’t get the outrage, it’s always been common for people to get their kids new PJ’s slippers etc for Christmas Eve. Somebody may try to make some money by selling a pre made one

Never heard of the practise myself, so it sounds a little odd, but each to their own
I have never heard of this either. My daughter is 34 & I still give her slippers & pyjamas on Xmas eve. She still insists on having an advent calendar too. Lol!
Haha! I had never heard of these 'Christmas Eve boxes' til just a year ago, my kids are 7 and 6 yrs old.

AND new pjs, slippers.... thats always 2 of their actual christmas presents that get opened on Christmas DAY!!

Presents the day before they get presents? Nonsense to me.

OP -to answer your question .............readymade Christmas Eve boxes - well surely the contents are going to be individual to every individual child so there will not be 'universal' one fits all box?

I'm several hundred years old and nobody has ever given me pyjamas and slippers on Christmas eve.

Hello and thankyou for your reply. The Christmas eve boxes, usually have reindeer food in (oats mixed with glitter) that the kids sprinkle outside, a santa key, a hot chocolate, a letter from santa and sometimes other things. My little boy last year when he was 3 found it magical! So yes some people might think this is over rated but my smile on my son's face is lovely. It doesn't have presents in, it's like a box from santa.

I posted about a Christmas eve box, not what other people are saying they fill theirs with. My son's last year was 3 and it had a letter from santa, reindeer food (oats mixed with glitter) for him to spread outside. A santa key to let him in and some hot chocolate etc. It wasn't filled with presents. It was purely to make my son feel Christmas is magical with santa. Hope this makes sense.

Was a mince pie and a glass of milk for Santa and a carrot for Rudolph when I was a kid. Things have got a lot more sophisticated. Love the reindeer food idea

My mum once made my dad walk through the house in wellies to leave Santa footprints. They didn't have carpets at the time. My sister wouldn't let her wash them up for ages. They never made that mistake again!

Haha that's bloomin brilliant :D, thing is that's actually believable for the little ones! Bless her, that's really cute! At least with her not wanting them to be gone, she would always remember the footprints, even if it wasn't really Santa

Thankyou for your comments and time. At first, I thought you was being a bah humbug - but a traditional view is definitely the best. Thanks again x

Then there was the year she made us wash our dolls just in case santa brought dolls clothes. Miraculously he did. About six months later I found a scrap of the material in the sewing drawer. (Granny was a seamstress). I couldn't get over the fact that Santa had actually sat down at our sewing machine to make the dolls clothes. Guess I was a bit naive age five

I really do miss the naivety of being a child. Everything was so real! That is hilarious, I can't believe you still thought that santa had made them x kids have such beautiful minds x

I know. It was the only logical solution I could come up with. Mind you , I was nowhere near as gullible as my sister. She believed me when I told her she had a boomerang growing out of her head. I was about two at the time and she was four. I was evil as a child.

I still get an advent calendar too
Ours always get a box with PJs and slippers in, and a christmassy DVD we'll sit down and watch as a family on xmas eve before they go to bed.

They're 10 & 12 now, and have stopped 'believing', but it does keep the magic alive a little on xmas eve
