Is it really Christmas without a selection box? Now you can get them customised

Only two more weekends to do your Christmas shopping!

The big day is really closing in and everything seems to be just about coming together. Presents are mostly chosen, if not bought, and all we have to do is pick up some stocking fillers and edible goodies.

The most important of these goodies is, of course, the selection box. Every year, the kids receive a selection box among their presents from Santa and, honestly, we don’t want to know what would happen if the man in red forgot to give them one. It really is a staple of Christmas Day – for the kids, those selection boxes are as important as the Christmas dinner.

Well, this year, Cadbury is helping you to take that next step by providing personalised selection boxes. Just imagine the little ones’ faces when they open their selection boxes on Christmas morning and find a box of treats with their name on it. Magical.

Their name on the box isn’t the only way to personalise it – you can also customise the contents of the box. So whoever doesn’t like fudge doesn’t have to get fudge or whoever is obsessed with Double Deckers can get a whole Double Decker-filled box.

If you want to pick up one of these personalised Cadbury selection boxes, just pop into Arnotts where Cadbury has their own little pop-up this Christmas season until Sunday, December 22.

Head to their counter where you can pick six bars from a selection of loads of the Cadbury favourites and then, once you’ve chosen, you can bring them to the personalisation station to get your little one’s name on the box. All for just €8 too (don’t mind if we do!).

If you’re thinking of picking some up for someone who’s maybe not quite a child anymore (you’re never to old for chocolate presents), you can also add a mystery element by including a polaroid image of yourself wearing the Cadbury Secret Santa mask.

Speaking of Secret Santa, the Cadbury Secret Santa van will be travelling around Ireland over the next week and a half, giving people the opportunity to send a bar of Cadbury Dairy Milk secretly to someone they love. Head over to the Cadbury website for more information on that and to find out how you can use Cadbury’s help to be the best Secret Santa ever.

This is going to be a great year for the presents, we think.
