Shoppers rush to buy Homebase Christmas essential that’s perfect for kids and costs just £6 | The Sun

SHOPPERS have been rushing to get their hands on a festive must-have that is bound to put a smile on your kid's face.

The £6 Christmas box from Homebase has got people talking on Facebook.

A Homebase shopper posted her find on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group and said she would be using it for her child's Christmas Eve box.

She added that "it’s big enough to fit everything I need in".

Other Facebook users were quick to tag their partners and pals in the comments.

One wrote: "Omg I love that!"

Another replied to her friend: "Oooooo I said to Tyler this year I’m going to put all my Christmas stuff in proper boxes instead of cardboard ones as well."

The large boxes come in three different designs: gingerbread men, festive gonks, and Santa and Rudolph.

Each has a lid in the same design which says "Merry Christmas" on the top.

Several shoppers had already bought their boxes and shared photos in the comments.

One woman said: "We got the GONK ones the other week! They are amazing."

Another had purchased one last year and said it's still going strong.

She wrote: "These are so good, I got them last year for a Xmas Eve box and still have them now xx"

Another mum agreed: "We got this last year, works well for storing them annoying elves after too."

The boxes cost £6 each and are available both online and in store, but do bear in mind delivery charges if you're shopping online.

They're pretty large too, each has a capacity of 22L, so could definitely be used as Christmas Eve boxes or just for storing your decorations throughout the year.

If you use it for your child's Christmas Eve box it means that you can fill it yourself rather than splashing out on pre-made ones.

Christmas Eve boxes have become all the range in recent years, for both kids and adults.

The hamper of treats is usually filled with pyjamas, toys, trinkets, books, chocolates, booze and other goodies.

Some boxes can set you back up to £150 from posh shops like Selfridges and Fortnum and Mason, last year we rounded up some of the ones on the market.

As always, we do always recommend having a look around for cheaper options to make sure you're getting the most for your money.

After a quick Google we found some alternatives from Card Factory and Home Bargains for less at £2.99 and £4.99 respectively.

Earlier this month we also shared that Asda is selling some bargain boxes for £2 but they're a bit smaller than the Homebase ones.

It's still worth having a look around first to make sure we haven't missed an even better offer – there's never a bad time to bag a bargain.

Also, when shopping online bear in mind the cost of delivery or collections.
