Is it just me or have advent calendars stepped up a notch?
I remember as a kid, the only advent calendars around were of the chocolate variety, and crappy chocolate at that. Definitely no Cadbury or Lindt either; oh no, it was very budget and we were lucky to get it once during our childhood.
Nowadays, advent calendars aren’t just limited to chocolates. You can get ones filled with beauty products, knick knacks, even stationery. The sky really is the limit.
So this brings you to today’s gift guide which will focus on, you guessed it, advent calendars! Advent calendars are the best way to get into the festive spirit, plus you don’t have to wait until Christmas Day to open the gifts, score!
I’ve rounded up some of the best around for you to spoil someone with, or maybe yourself!
