Last week I brought you our food and drink Christmas gift guide and today I will be bringing you a selection of brilliant Advent calendars; not just for kids but for grown ups too! There are so many Advent calendars out there to choose from nowadays and I always love that time of year, the kids happily rush downstairs each morning to open yet another door. I had a Yankee Candle Advent calendar last year and it was such a treat for me.
Advent Calendars for kids…
My favourite this year is this Christmas Tree Advent Chest from JoJo Maman Bébé, it costs £15.00 but can be used year after year and it looks so pretty. I love that you get to choose whatever you want to go inside it. I haven’t decided what to fill it with yet so if you have any ideas please leave them in the comments.
For the past few years we have been Playmobil Playologists and as part of that the kids have been sent one of their fab Advent Calendars each year. This year we have received the Christmas room with illuminating tree one. Each day you open a door to reveal a piece to the scene and on Christmas Eve the scene is complete. The kids will love the illuminating tree this year. This is priced at £19.99 and is worth every penny as Playmobil is such a brilliant toy all year round.
I can see this Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar (£21.00) being a huge hit this Christmas. We had a Lego one a couple of years back and it was brilliant. I’m really tempted to treat Bugs to this one this year.
I love this Advent Candle, I have never actually had one before and I think it is a lovely way to count down to Christmas. This one is priced at £8.00 which I think is a bargain.
Advent Calendars for her…
I’m a huge nail polish fan so I would just LOVE to open this Cheeky nail polish Advent each day.
I’ve been coveting the No7 Advent calendar for a few years now, I love No7 products so I am really hoping I will be able to pick one of these up this year :O)
As I said earlier I had a Yankee Candle Advent last year and would absolutely love one again this year. It was so nice to burn a lovely Christmas scent every day on the build up to Christmas 🙂
My favourite chocolate is Lindt so if I was to have a chocolate calendar then this would be my idea of perfection – so cute!!
If I was feeling flush I might be tempted to treat myself to the Ginvent! Ha I just love this, it contains a sample of different gin every day. Some how I don’t think i’d be able to stomach this before breakfast though 😉
Advent Calendars for him…
My other half loves Marzipan so this is definitely something that I would buy for him.
Since growing his beard this year my other half has a little obsession with nice beard oils, well now he can have a new scent every single day with this awesome Advent calendar from The Bearded Man Company 🙂
Surely there isn’t a man alive who wouldn’t just LOVE this Beer Advent Calendar?
I hope this gift guide gives you some inspiration 🙂
I’d love to know what you do for Advent? Do you treat yourself to a lovely calendar, make one or something else?
