Magical Christmas: Hotel Chocolat's Christmas Eve Box Guide

As special occasions go, Christmas Eve doesn’t get a lot of love. Maybe it’s all the rushing around, maybe it’s wishing the day away so that you can get started on the presents.

But now a new custom, perhaps inspired by the German Christmas tradition of opening presents on December 24th, is setting out to change all that.

What is a Christmas Eve box?

The definition of a Christmas Eve box is partly up to you and what suits your loved ones best. The box itself can range from a shoebox prettily decorated with wrapping paper to a keepsake wooden, personalised Christmas Eve box engraved with the recipient’s name.


What to include in your Christmas Eve box?

Chocolate Coins

Cocoa currency at Hotel Chocolat: 20 chocolate coins cast in 40% milk chocolate. These coins are perfect for self-indulgence.


Gingerbread Hot Chocolat

Made with real chocolate flakes, never powder. Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg over 50% caramel-milk.

Alternative Mince Pies

So long dried fruit. Filled with award-winning milk chocolate truffles and burnt caramel pralines.
