A good place to start with Christmas Eve boxes is to find the perfect box itself. We’ve fallen in love with this amazing one by Designer Kids & Baby at Amazon Handmade. The style of the box itself is really vintage and chic and it is something so beautiful that you’d be thrilled to have it out on display on Christmas eve as part of your festive decor.
