"You've Been Naughty" Lump of Coal Cache Gift Box

Everyone knows naughty kids get a lump of coal for Christmas. Well, some kids never grow up and deserve a bit of coal, maybe filled with candy or treats. This cache box shaped like a lump of coal is the perfect gift for the naught person on your list.

 

A little history; In the 19th century, when the modern forms of both Christmas and Santa Claus were developing, there was little mention of punishing naughty children with coal. Coal seems to adopt its punitive symbolism around the turn of the century. The material had taken over most domestic heating by then. While there were outliers, like those with expensive wood or steam heating systems, many Americans relied more and more on their local coal merchant and the ever-more distant mines. Coal was common and plentiful, features that made it a bad gift, like the switches and stones of earlier years.
