Countdowns are the most fun, and there is none better than a countdown to Christmas morning. Advent calendars create a fun way to build anticipation and mark time in the holiday season, and today I have gathered up a few of my favorites in the hopes that you will choose one for your home this year!
With a collection of beauty products valued at over $300, this beautiful calendar contains pampering treasures galore.
I love the idea of selecting an evergreen advent calendar that can become a family heirloom. You can fill this light-up version with tiny candies and other trinkets to personalize your seasonal celebration.
BONNE MAMAN JAM.
Two years ago I was gifted this darling advent calendar full of 24 delicious tiny jars of Bonne Maman jam, and it was a delight to taste a new flavor all season. Definitely one of my favorites!
My daughter Norah is a bit of a tea connoisseur, and she has raved about the David’s Tea advent calendar. Her favorite features are the tiny metal jars that house each tea, and the ample size of each sample that allows for two full servings of the tea.
Remember the grocery store advent calendars with a tiny piece of chocolate behind each door? This is the grown up, luxury version of that childhood favorite. Twenty-four days of chocolate? Yes please!
With twelve different flavors of gourmet caramels hiding behind twenty-four beautifully illustrated doors, it is no wonder that the McCrae’s Caramel Advent Calendar sells out each year. If you’re a caramel-lover, grab one now and enjoy a sweet treat each day in December.
NESPRESSO COFFEE PODS.
This is an advent calendar I can get behind! A different coffee pod awaits you each day, delivering your daily dose of caffeine in a cute, holiday pod. Important to note, the pods in this calendar are compatible only with the Original Line Nespresso Machines. If you, like me, own the Nespresso Vertuo model, these pods sadly will not work.
OLIVE AND JUNE.
Manicure magic! I am planning on gifting this to my nail-polish obsessed teenager in the coming weeks. I think she will love opening a new manicure tool or supply each day. What a fun way to celebrate!
Have you familiarized yourself with all things Sugarfina? They set the bar when it comes to delectable candy packaged with panache. This advent calendar is no exception and features four pieces of candy in each drawer, making this a very family-friendly advent option.
A bit of a splurge, this advent calendar understands the assignment. Each box contains twelve different wines with tasting notes, providing you the opportunity to sample new varietals and enjoy a month’s worth of delicious wine.
I have my eye on this advent calendar this season. I love Voluspa candles, and I am thinking this collection of twelve different scents would make a beautiful way to light my way through advent.
WILLIAMS-SONOMA HOLIDAY BAKING.
How fun is this collection of baking essentials? From mini spatulas to cookie cutter, stencils to piping bottles, this collection of holiday baking items would make a cute seasonal gift for the tiny baker in your life.
