We have more than our fair share of ways to countdown to Christmas. We have the activity advent calendar, the Christmas storybook advent, the wooden drawers filled with mini tree decorations and each child has a chocolate advent calendar.
In the past, I’ve had a Yankee candle advent calendar and a Christmas charm bracelet calendar and I loved them both.
I’m after something a bit different this year so I started looking early (at the end of August to be honest!) and found some ideas. So here’s my advent calendars guide 2018.
Advent Calendars Guide 2018
When I was younger we had a picture advent calendar to share between four of us. We all looked forward to seeing what picture we would open on our day so the first calendar I’m sharing is one that helps the Marie Curie charity.
100% of profits from every product goes towards providing high-quality care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.
The Yankee calendar I had a couple of years ago was carousel themed and came with a mixture of tealights and votives.
This wreath shaped calendar comes with 24 tealights and a glass tealight holder
Terry’s Chocolate Orange & Ferrero Rocher Wooden Advent
In our house, we have to have a Terry’s Chocolate Orange on the treat trolley! Ferrero Rocher chocolates are also a Christmas must-have which is why these wooden advent calendars would be perfect for us!
You have to buy the chocolates yourself but I think they’re great value. They can be used year after year.
Baylis & Harding Beauticology Advent Calendar
I’m always pleased when I receive a Baylis & Harding gift set at Christmas so you can imagine my delight when I found this advent calendar available online.
That’s all for now but I’ll be back if I find more exciting advent calendars 🙂
