Christmas Eve boxes for adults
Who said Christmas Eve boxes are only for children? We adults also deserve something good for ourselves on such special night too.
Movie gift pack
Christmas night is always the perfect time for good movies. Send your loved one a basket full of the best Christmas movie, ice-cream cones or just pop-corn, a good list of chocolate candy (M&M is good enough). With this movie gift pack, you can lay back your couch and enjoy your happy time together as a family.
Game gift pack
What if your friends or family members are the real gamers? The night promises a lot of fun playing your favorite games together (even when you’re not good at it).
Besides having fun together, you can show how much you care for your loved ones by giving them a good Time for Myself aka Spa basket. Soaps, fragrances, bath balls, oil candles, body scrubs, etc. – these things will definitely make a relaxing and feeling-good bath/spa time.
Ice cream love basket
We adults are just older kids. I bet that all of us like ice cream – no matter how old we are. Hence, preparing an epic sundae ice cream basket for everyone to take a cold bite is a creative way to enjoy Christmas night.
The preparation is not nerve wrecking either. Just the cones, chocolate chips, some creamy sauces, a kit of spoons…and then you can pack them with a nice Christmas wrap.
