The most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner, and it’s never too early to start preparing. From festive decorations and delicious food to special gifts for the ones you love, planning thoughtful details is all a part of the fun. The night before Christmas is all about being with your family and friends, putting up stockings, placing your gifts under the tree and, of course, opening your Christmas Eve box.

Christmas Eve boxes have become increasingly popular in recent years. They were created for parents to surprise their children before going to sleep on Christmas Eve. Now, just like advent calendars and Christmas stockings, they have become a must-have for adults, too, so anyone can join in on the fun!

Plenty of affordable gifts can be added to a Christmas Eve box, whether it’s for your other half, best friend or a family member. If you’re planning to make your own box for a loved one this year, follow our guide to make it a surprise to remember.

Choosing a Christmas Eve box

You’ll need a sturdy box or hamper that’s big enough to hold a selection of smaller gifts, as the bigger presents are typically saved until Christmas Day. A simple cardboard box with a lid works well, as you can easily wrap or decorate it to make it look extra special. If you plan to incorporate a few larger gifts, a wicker hamper offers more space, more space to be creative with what’s inside. For those who want to start a new tradition, wooden boxes are an ideal choice, as they can be reused year after year.

When it comes to choosing what to put in your Christmas Eve box, the possibilities are endless. Chocolate, sweets, candles and face masks all make excellent gifts, but a brand new pair of fresh pyjamas is essential to go to sleep in. There’s nothing better than feeling cosy throughout the festive season, and receiving new nightwear or loungewear will help you to get into the Christmas spirit.

Read on to discover our favourite nightwear and loungewear pieces to add to your Christmas Eve box.


A new pair of pyjamas is a classic Christmas Eve gift that people of all ages love. Combined with comfortable slippers, they provide the ideal laid-back outfit to spend a peaceful Christmas Eve in. Whether you opt for a jazzy Christmas design or a more understated style that can be worn all year round, there are plenty of options that men and women will adore. Treat your chosen recipient to their favourite style of pyjamas, with various types, including fleece, funnel-neck, button-down, full-length and short. If your loved one isn’t a fan of pyjamas, try giving them an elegant nightdress or hooded onesie instead.

Dressing gowns

There’s nothing quite like a cosy dressing gown to keep you feeling warm on those cold winter nights, so why not add them to your Christmas Eve boxes? A dressing gown is guaranteed to make your loved one feel comfortable and relaxed, providing an excellent pairing for their new pyjamas. Whether they’re watching their favourite Christmas film or indulging in some sweet treats before the big day, a snug dressing gown is guaranteed to elevate their experience. There are plenty of dressing gown options available, including hooded, printed, lightweight and fluffy, so you’ll find a design that’s perfect for them. 

Bed socks

Another Christmas Eve box staple is a luxurious pair of bed socks. Made with soft, comfortable fabrics and various vibrant and minimal aesthetics, they are designed to keep your feet cosy when it’s cold outside. As they can be worn to bed or around the house, they can be paired with pyjamas and a dressing gown to create the ultimate at-home ensemble. With so many bed socks to choose from, there is an option to suit everyone, so there’s no need to leave any of your loved ones out. They’re guaranteed to bring them comfort, warmth and a stylish aesthetic this season.


For those on your gift list who love their loungewear, why not swap out the pyjamas this year and surprise them with a new set? Loungewear is a wardrobe essential, especially for those lazy days between Christmas and New Year, so your loved one will appreciate a stylish new design to add to their collection. There are many options to explore, including matching loungewear sets, simple loungers and snuggle hoodies in various colours and prints. Loungewear combines the comfort of nightwear and the style of a co-ord, making it the ultimate casual staple for any fashion lover.
