Well Last Day of November and that means that tomorrow is December and the start of the countdown to Christmas with Advent Calendars.
I love Advent Calendars, a little treat every day until Christmas Day itself. I remember as a child it built the excitement through the month.
Advent Calendars come in all shapes, sizes and prices these are my favorites for 2013!
Colouring Advent Calendar
How about an advent calendar that you can colour in!! Open a window everyday and colour in a Christmas scene!! A great idea at £4.19 from Waterstones.
Wooden Reindeer Advent Calendar
A cute wooden and very visible reusable Advent Calendar from Not on The High Street at £30.00 its great value as can be used year after year. Use as a family advent calendar and put things in like ‘Decorate the tree’ or Panto tickets or ‘go Ice -Skating, make it unique to you and fun for all.
Victorian Birds Advent Calendar
Traditional Advent Calendars did not have chocolates or small gifts inside them and at traditionaladventcalendars.co.uk they have some beautiful and traditional scenes – my favourite is the Victorian inspired one with beautiful birds and great value at £2.50
Arty 3D Winter Muse Advent Calendar
For those who are more art inspired this amazing and unique advent calendar from Crankbunny on Etsy. It is 3D and beautiful and every day you hang a new ornament on the horns of the Winter Muse – lovely idea. You can use it every year and it comes in at approx £25.00 – Bargain.
Christmas Tree Advent Calendar
A Hanging Christmas Advent Calendar! What a great festive idea! Find this at the Great Little Trading co for £35.00.
Manicure Advent Calendar
Selfridges sell some amazing advent calendars from the beauty section, my favorite is this Mini Mani Calendar by Ciate and at £38.00 is a real treat as it includes some exclusive glitter shades only available in this calendar!!
Luxury Advent Calendar
For that luxury feel at Christmas Fortnum and Mason have released an amazing filled advent calendar, behind each door is a little Christmas treat like Jelly Beans and Sugar Mice. Pricey at £125.00 but reusable and beautiful.
Chocolate Advent Calendar
Chocolate advent calendar’s are my favorite and Hotel Chocolate do not dissapoint this year with their selection, they even have ones for couples, £25.00 but enough chocolate for 2, My husband wouldn’t get one of these as he said I would just eat his share!! He has a point!
Playmobil Advent Calendar
A great trend at the moment is to have tiny toys in advent calendars rather than sweets and you can see this in the Playmobil advent calendars. Under each window is another piece that ultimately creates a wonderful scene! £13.00 from Amazon.co.uk
Cute Hanging Decorations
Make Advent Calendars part of your decoration. These cute buckets can be hung around the house and then filled with sweet things every day. Find these as a packaged deal at traditionaladventcalendars.co.uk for 24.99. Or you can try and make it yourself buying supplies at craft shops like Hobbycraft.
