I've first heard of it last year - very clever marketing methinks!!

We always did that when the kids were small just told them they could choose one present from under the tree ( not Father Christmas presents of course) on Christmas Eve these were mainly made up of any small presents from away family

Not quite a Christmas eve box
But some new PJs
Drinking chocolate with marshmallows
And a Christmas story booktchsmile

My mum and I used to allow my daughter a present off the tree on condition that she stuffed the turkey. Once she grew a bit older she wouldn't do it anymore!

I agree Lynnebo! I think I prefer your plan Cherrytree59, not forgetting a carrot for Rudolph tchsmile

We open boxes from far away family on Christmas Eve.
