Both!

December 1st Box has advent calendar, arts and crafts, Christmas jumper, PJ's and some chocolate/sweets....basically things for during December.

Christmas Eve box has family PJs, hot chocolate, book, dvd, reindeer food etc

I'm doing a Christmas Eve box this year for the first time. Excited about it!
For stuff for during December (Christmas dvds, Christmas cups/bowls, sticker books and books etc) I pretty much just introduce it when I put the decorations and tree up.

We do Christmas Eve box but we’ve also started doing a few little things on the night we put our decorations up which isn’t necessarily 1st December. We do Christmas pjs, Christmas sweets and watch a Christmas film then when the kids are in bed our elf ‘appears’. Our Christmas Eve box tends to have the same things in each year - more new pjs, recycled Christmas teddies and blankets, reindeer food, magic keys and more chocolate or sweets

I did a Christmas eve box last year for the first time. Had reindeer hot chocolate, santa balloon, a key to leave out for santa, PJ's and a colouring book.

Invisible elf comes out to play with his door on the 1st, and he'll be bringing the girls calendars. I didn't realise people did a box too.

My 1st December thing isn't a box as such, it's just things we have on 1st December when we get everything out and decorated. I like to make all of Dec about the lead up so we do arts and crafts, make cards, go to parties, school plays etc etc. Makes it all last longer and builds up excitement :-)

Because we're spending Christmas at our flat for the first time ever this year instead of going to my mums, I was going to get a magic santa key and I like the idea of putting it in the Christmas Eve box cheers ladies!

I only do a christmas eve box which contains new pjs, slipper socks, santa key, reindeer food and a goodbye present and note from our elf. We are usually always out most of xmas eve so when we return our elf has gone and left this behind.

I don't normally do a first of dec box. Our elf usually just appears with an advent calendar and then ill leave out sone craft things or sticker books most mornings. Im wondering though whether this year just to have the elf arrive with a box full of craft books etc for the month? Would be a lot easier tbh

My elf door appears on the 30th of November and then the elf arrives on the 1st with the advent calendar and letter from Santa and some kind of reward chart. First year was simple reward chart to get a sticker every day till Santa came, last year was little reward cards to save up and this years is a chart to do good deeds etc to get your sheet filled up with a letter explaining that kindness is what makes Santa sleigh fly so needed help. The elf does something every day and sometimes that is just bringing christmas colour book, cookie kits etc.
He is gone on xmas eve morning leaving goodbye note and little gift but door still there and later on in day nearer bedtime Christmas eve box arrives. Has pj's key, reindeer dust, santa plate and bottle for his milk, magic key, sweets and other little bits that I find and a certificate confirming that is on the nice list.
