For us, the perfect Christmas Eve box is all very hygge, a time to hunker down at home in pure comfort and spend time together, before the excitement of Christmas Day.
We’ve put together some suggestions of what our perfect Christmas Eve Box might hold in case you wanted some inspiration. And spoiler alert – Christmas Eve boxes shouldn’t be just for the kids! (Which is basically me saying, I want one!)
Some new, and freshly washed, PJs. We love these ones by our pals at Lola and Blake Designs. Available in baby to adult sizes so you can all match!
Slippers – and nothing is cuter than these crocheted ones from Eka Wear. Available in baby to adult sizes.
Something to read – a comic, a book, a magazine – just some downtime away from a screen, whatever age you are! You can't go wrong with a Christmas classic, and with a redesigned cover from Bookishly - even better.
A card game – I can highly recommend Exploding Kittens if you haven’t already found this. Very addictive and fun for all ages. Or just a new pack of cards so you can play your own choice of games. We are big fans of QueenG cards for their gender equality and diversity of the royal cards.
A new Christmas decoration. This sweet mouse is handmade from 100% British sheep wool. Proudly wearing a Santa hat this little fellow would hang sweetly from a Christmas tree. From Brown Betty Blue
Or a personalised tree ornament as well, like these polar bear ones from Betsy Benn.
A little creativity – maybe some origami squares for the older ones, or some watercolour paints (yes – for me again!) or these gorgeous Elf stickers from Elf For Christmas
Some hot chocolate – and delightfully presented maybe like this one from Zac and Lily.
And maybe a mug cosy to keep little hands protected? We love this polar bear one from Chi Chi Moi.
For the grown ups you could add a miniature brandy or rum for extra warmth!
And absolutely include a snack. Either ready made biscuits, or these ones to bake yourself from The Katie Bakes

The traditional wall planner needed some Betsy magic that's for sure. Here's how our wall planner life used to play out, tell me if this resonates. You buy what you think is a BIG wall planner. It's been beautifully designed too, so it looks great on the wall. Then you write ONE THING on a day and, *poof*, no more space for anything else on that day.
Does that sound familiar?
