These cute advent calendars will help you get in the holiday spirit early and give something to smile about every day until Christmas. If you buy a few, you can start counting down the days until Christmas right now!
A friend of mine recently found several advent calendar gift sets in her closet that she had intended to give as gifts last year. She almost put them back to give as gifts this year when she was struck by I believe is a genius idea.
She realized she had 4 Advent Calendars. Advent Calendars typically count the last 24 days until Christmas, right? So, with 4 Advent Calendars, she could start counting the days until Christmas starting at 96 days until the holiday.
And that, my friends, is what she is doing. Every day she opens a new box in her Advent Calendar and posts a picture on Facebook. Her current Advent Calendar has 24 different jars of jam and she posts a picture every day of her toast and jam and cup of tea.
What a great way to get in the Christmas spirit! I get a little bit of joy just looking at the pictures! And this year, more than ever, we can use all the Christmas we can get and as early as we want to start celebrating.
I think I’ll grab at least two of these calendars and start my own personal Christmas countdown. If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to get in the Christmas spirit, I’m sure at least one of these Advent Calendars will do the trick.
Plus, they make great pre-Christmas gifts for any of your friends who might need a little cheering up these days! (Translation: all of us.)
This is the 2020 version of the Advent Calendar that my friend has been enjoying. Open a new window each day to reveal a different iconic 1 oz. Bonne Maman jar in 24 unique flavors of Mini Fruit Spreads or Honey.
What goes better with toast and jam than tea? Take a break for a spot of tea and try out a new variety of tea with this 24-tea Advent Calendar. Pukka teas are ethically sourced via sustainable means so you can relax guilt-free.
If cocoa is more your style, then this 12-day collection is sure to bring a smile. Each decorative box contains a 1.25 oz. single-serve packet of gourmet cocoa mix in flavors such as Chocolate Mint or Vanilla Snowflake.
I always get so excited when I get a Harry and David gift basket but I would never dream of buying one for myself! Well, if there was ever a year to throw that rule out the window, it's this year. This Advent Calendar contains 24 exquisite pieces of chocolate, just perfect for a little post-lunch treat or maybe to go along with that afternoon tea that's becoming a habit?
If you'd like to treat yourself to a daily piece of chocolate without spending quite so much money, this cute Advent Calendar displays part of the classic poem "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and includes a 2 oz. piece of chocolate behind each door.
If you would like to treat yourself to some luxury that isn't food-related, you can't go wrong with this beautiful Advent Calendar. Behind every door is a different sample-sized Rituals product, such as The Ritual of Sakura Shower Scrub, a Mini Scented Candle, or Amsterdam Collection Body Mist.
Here's a fun take on the traditional Advent candle. Take a bit of time each night to slow down, light one of these beautifully scented candles, and appreciate the season. Each candle has a burn time of 15 hours.
