A custom Christmas Eve box is a wonderful, personal take on a festive craze. Inspired by the German and Scandinavian tradition of opening gifts on Christmas Eve, the Christmas Eve box is a way to participate in this custom and extend family-centred Christmas celebrations in a special way. A personalised Christmas box can be used in so many ways. It could contain individually wrapped gifts or it could be used as the wrapping itself. Don't forget to check our design tips for our favourite ways in which you can add a personalised Christmas Eve box to your annual customs.
If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.
Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.
Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.
Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.
The box is made from a strong and lasting metal. Your design is printed on the lid of the box in full glorious colour. Our printing technicians use a modern, deep infusion technology. This bonds the eco-friendly inks onto the metal resulting in a long-lasting, high definition print. This produces a vintage 'etched' effect that will keep from fading. Your personalised Christmas Eve box is crafted expertly and with love, just like in Santa's Grotto.
There are multiple ways in which you can adopt this Christmas Eve tradition. We love the idea of making it a morning event, and filling your personalised Christmas box with family things. A festive film, some snacks, a Yuletide story and even some tasty hot cocoa. It paves the way to have a proper family day before the Christmas madness kicks in. Use your favourite family photo, or if you have a great picture from last Christmas, this would also be a great idea for the lid of your personalised Christmas Eve box. You could even use multiple pictures and make a Christmas collage.
Another one of our favourite ideas is to incorporate this into the kids' nighttime routine. Fill with things like pyjamas and slippers, maybe even a festive scented bubble bath. You could also add a story book and some 'reindeer food', along with a mince pie to leave out for Santa, and a gingerbread biscuit to have with some milk before bed. You can use the personalised Christmas Eve box as a 'preparing for Santa' activity. You can use photos of each recipient on their own box so that they know which is theirs, and can use it for future Christmases again and again.
