1. Scented Candle
Everyone loves a good candle. Avoid anything too sweet (think cupcakes or cake) and go with something classy and gender neutral.
2. Healthy Snacks like Popcorn for Adults
Everyone loves popcorn (or at least most people do!), but most people are trying to NOT pack on pounds during the holiday.
Buy the SmartPop Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn for a healthy and fun snack. Perfect for watching Christmas movies on Christmas Day!
3. Strategy Board Games Like Codenames for Adults
Codenames is the new popular game for adults. There’s strategy and thinking involved, and it takes practically no time to learn!
You can play this with smaller groups or larger groups of adults.
4. Hot Cocoa
Few things are better on a cold winter night than a hot glass of cocoa with whipping cream. Or, a deluxe cup of coffee with creamer in the bright and early morning.
I have fond memories of sipping the Land O Lakes premium hot cocoa as a little kid. Buy a large box and then give each member of your family 3-5 packs of hot cocoa!
5. Flavored Hot Tea Mixes and Coffee Flavors
Most adults are either tea drinkers or coffee lovers. Go with a vanilla chai tea or a flavored coffee.
6. Burt’s Bees Chapstick and Hand Cream
Everyone could use some ChapStick in the winter.
The Burt’s Bees ChapStick is the best that I’ve found, and it works! This affordable Christmas gift is easy to fit into a Christmas Eve Box for adults too.
7. Fun Gift Cards for Adults
Amazon has gift cards from any place you could imagine! Top picks include Starbucks, The Cheesecake Factory, Uber Eats, and Chipotle.
8. Fresh Oranges and Pears
Harry & David sells great online gift baskets with fruit and nuts, but it can be a bit pricey! Instead, order fresh food from Whole Foods on Amazon Prime.
Then, fill up a Christmas Eve box will delicious pears, grapefruit, oranges, and other healthy foods.
9. Christmas Gnome
Christmas Gnomes are so cute! I can't think of any adult who wouldn't love a cute Christmas gnome in their Christmas Eve Box. Plus, Christmas gnomes are an easy way to decorate for Christmas!
