Why wait until Dec. 25 to start opening presents when you can dive in the night before with a Christmas Eve box? Inspired by the European tradition of opening some or all gifts on Dec. 24, Christmas Eve boxes are becoming more and more popular in the UK, as families look for ways to extend the festive fun by giving a few small treats early. Typical contents include things that can be enjoyed that night, like hot chocolate, festive food items, a Christmas movie, PJs, slippers, scented candles, card games, and festive bath goodies. Think of it as an early stocking.
