In Honor of Boxing Day: Our 10 Favorite British-Inspired Items

British-inspired products to celebrate boxing day

Here in the United States, the day after Christmas is just like any other day, only with lots of leftovers and no more surprises under the tree. But for the United Kingdom and other countries with English roots, Boxing Day is celebrated. While the exact origins of the name are uncertain, Boxing Day has long been associated with giving money and other gifts to those in need and in service positions. Historically, churches opened the Alms Box, or collection box, to distribute to the poor on this day. It was also custom for tradespeople and servants to collect “Christmas boxes” of money or presents as thanks for their good service throughout the year.
