A Christmas Eve Box is the perfect collection of gifts to open on Christmas Eve. Usually it’s a time to settle down and get all snuggly for the big day ahead. So ideally we want our Christmas Eve Box to be around the theme of being cosy.
Of course, if you celebrate Christmas Eve in a different way, feel free to create a theme around that particular feeling you want to evoke.
For this Christmas Eve Box gift guide, we are going to offer up some cosy gift ideas. This edition is for the women in your life. Most guides out there are for kids, but we think adult Christmas Eve Boxes should be a thing.
So if you need adult Christmas Eve Box ideas, we have for you covered! This is the ladies edit, and we’ll be back tomorrow with the men’s edit.

1. The box
First things first, how will you present the gifts on Christmas Eve? You have a few options:
It’s always nice to have something fresh and new to wear on Christmas Eve. One of the obvious choices is a nice set of cosy pyjamas or nightwear. But also some lovely fluffy slippers or thick socks would fit the theme perfectly.
There’s two ways to go here – gift them something hot, warm, and comforting. Or offer them a booze-y drink of your choosing. Or be super decadent and do both! We love a booze-y hot chocolate on Christmas Eve.
Mulled Wine/Cider/Apple Juice
Get festive by including a mulled spice mix to make up some mulled wine, mulled cider, or even mulled apple juice depending on your preferences.
For the booze-y fans add in a miniature bottle of their favourite tipple such as lush Baileys, a cute gin, or tasty whisky.
Full Size Bottles
Although if you want to go all out just pick up a full size bottle of something, extra points if it goes well with the hot chocolate or coffee that you also bought from above. We love Amaretto or Frangelico at this time of year.
5. Something festive
Christmas Eve is a wonderful time to make memories and start new traditions. Choose a festive-themed gift such as an ornament for the tree that they keep and treasure for future years to come.
Get creative and include something different in your Christmas Eve Box for her. It could tie in with the cosy theme. Maybe it’s something personalised. Or maybe their favourite colour. It could be linked to their hobbies or passions.
A lovely thoughtful addition to your Christmas Eve Box is something personalised such as this adorable snack pot.
These Christmas Gonks are quite popular this year and make a nice quirky gift.
