If you were planning to surprise your little ones with a Christmas Eve box, then Home Bargains £3 ones would probably do the trick!

Christmas Eve is a magical time of year, with parents across the country helping their little ones to prepare for the arrival of Santa Claus.

And if you’re looking for a way to make it even more special, Home Bargains have put together a sweet Christmas Eve box which make an ideal gift for children.

The box has a very festive design, with cartoon penguins, mice, reindeer and an elf decorating a winter scene along the side of the box.

On the lid, there’s a Christmas themed envelope with ‘special delivery’ printed on the top, making it a great gift to present to someone special.

Shopper Zena Bough shared her find to Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, writing, ‘Christmas Eve boxes in home bargains £2.99! Contains Christmas story book, letter from Santa, door hook, stickers & cookies! Think it’s a fab price 🎅🏼’

Many shoppers were quick to comment on the Christmas box, with the post racking up over 4,000 reactions and 2,000 comments.

We think this would be the ideal thing to give to children on the evening of Christmas Eve, as it’s got a Christmas story book that you can read with them, as well as cookies to leave out for Santa.

There’s also a letter from Santa, a door hook for their bedroom, and some stickers to help them decorate for the festive season.

Many people tagged their friends in the comments, to give them some inspiration for the festive season. Some noted you could even add your own things to the box to give it a personal touch.

One wrote, ‘This is good, it’s already filled’ to which their friend jokingly replied, ‘Yeah but we would still put more in!’

Another added, ‘We need these’.

A third joked, ‘We need a trip to Home Bargains but quickly, before the other 1.8k people get there.’

The Christmas Eve boxes aren’t available online, so you’d have to battle the crowds and head to your local store if you want any. We can see them being popular!

Or, you can make your own Christmas Eve box if you'd like something very personal for your loved one.

Our guide is full of great ideas to help you put one together without breaking the bank.
