Christmas Eve boxes are one of this year’s hottest trends for kids, but what about us adults? We’ve put together some tips and gift ideas to create your very own Christmas Eve box for adults.
Because everyone deserves a bit of festive fun, even us oldies!
Us adults certainly deserve a treat after a busy few festive weeks leading up to the big day, and what better way than to surprise your better half with their own Christmas Eve box.
