In 2009, there were three cupboards available to players, one each in Varrock, Falador, and Draynor Village. Each cupboard was accompanied by a partygoer exclaiming phrases such as Come inside, wine, food, and many more! and Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
In 2016, three cupboards are available to players, one each in Varrock, Burthorpe, and Lumbridge to teleport players to Santa's Christmas neighbourhood. The holiday portal in Prifddinas also acts as a cupboard. 11 cupboards exist within Santa's Christmas neighbourhood that teleport players to different Christmas events that happened over the years.
The cupboards were the one of the first interactive sceneries to use particle effects. Snowflakes can be seen floating out of the cupboard. Particle effects can also seen in the Land of Snow where snowflakes appear to fall onto the ground.
