We know Christmas is a tough season. We are no strangers to last-minute shopping, forgotten gifts, and the crush of Christmas markets. It is for this reason that we constantly recommend you shop through our attractions page, to buy short breaks for those you love come Christmas. Online shopping removes a whole world of problems presented by traditional gift shopping. We say do it online, save your own time, and use it to spend with your family.
With not wasting your valuable time at the top of our Christmas list, let’s narrow down that shopping a little farther… By sourcing the top 10 Best Advent calendars for you, this Christmas… Enjoy!
The 10 best advent calendars coming to a Christmas near you
Without messing about, let’s turn our attention to what is behind door number one.
10 – Keep it Crispy
Pringles Advent Calendars are a real thing and they occupy the number ten spot on our list. Their range of crisp themed calendars allows you to have a yummy Christmas with one easy product. They include different types of crisp in the small tubs – and they are available for pre-order. On top of being a stellar calendar, this makes a very thoughtful gift for anyone you feel needs a little extra TLC this holiday season. The Wowcher deal allows for more than a fifty percent discount, so really there’s no reason not to!
9 – Bold and Beautiful
At first glance, most people would write off a beauty advent calendar over price alone. They are expensive. They can range from £70 mark all the way up into the hundreds. When you have a teenager with TikTok who is exposed to these pricey packages on the daily, it becomes a bit of an ask. After all, an advent calendar is a precursor, not a real present.
Anyway, get around it with a W7 advent calendar that contains 24 days of beauty and skincare gifts. This is just about the cheapest we could find and definitely represents great value for money. With Wowcher, you can get this whole set for less than £20!
8 – Go By Brand
Alternatively, if you do have the money and you are willing to splurge, then congratulations first of all. Consider a branded gift-box style advent calendar. Some of the best on offer are jewellery calendars such as the Philip Jones Advent Calendar made with crystals from Swarovski. This is the gift that gives for 24 days, allowing a small present and a burst of serotonin, once a day for (almost) a full month.
7 – Advent Calendars are for Kids!
So they say… So why not opt for a personalised advent calendar, sure to stun and amaze your little minions? This is another way to make them feel like Santa has specially made his trip, just for them. Enjoy a Swarovski crystal embedded advent calendar ready to add a little decadence to your Christmas festivities. Again, you will have to fill the pockets with gifts or treats yourself, but it’s a more sustainable option to buying a new calendar every year.
6 – For Young Ladies
For the little girl who insists she is a grown lady, there is no better advent investment than the Blissmass advent calendar. For the full 12 days of Christmas, this calendar gives out bubbly beauty treats, suitable for the young teen. Get yours today and make sure she feels as grown up as mum. It mostly contains giant bath bombs for making bathing more luxurious – but she’ll love it.
5 – The DIY Version
If you want to buy the bags and do it yourself, there’s a deal for that. This wonderful hanging bag surprise deal from Wowcher lets you grab 24 bags to tie in with your Christmas décor. They are hung in a string, each containing a present you have bought and placed inside, ready to be opened.
This is such a sweet gift because you can personalise it so much. It’s also a sustainable option for those into zero waste gift giving.
4 – Go Full Vegan
If you want to delight the vegan in your life (and arguable annoy everyone else) then send them a vegan advent calendar. Joe & Seph’s popcorn advent calendar is a lot more luxurious than the first glance suggests. This stuff is delicious, animal friendly, reasonably healthy, and – thanks to Wowcher – it doesn’t cost the earth!
3 – Say it with Beer
Know someone who should be vegan, but isn’t? They float around at parties wearing wool hats and talking about avocado toast? Those people. Buy them the Craft Beer advent calendar to change their life. This delightful idea lets you stock up for Christmas in the month before, by giving you a can of tasty craft goodness every day for 24 days. Go on, treat them… give them something else to talk about asides from planetary destruction and the patriarchy.
2 – Attract the Ladies
If the Lynx ads we are so used to are right, then any guy who sprays it on themselves attracts all women in the nearby area. If you would like to be stampeded to death by a rush of lovely ladies, you should opt for the Lynx advent calendar instead of a plain chocolate one.
It isn’t all body spray, either. Each Lynx Africa calendar contains 12 Lynx products capable of keeping you stocked up in smellies until next year. One for each guy in your life guarantees you never need to endure bad smells again.
1 – What’s wrong with Chocolate?
If, like us, you feel that an advent calendar without chocolate is disappointing, then hold on to your hats. There are Bailey’s advent calendars that come with a 50cl bottle attached. You can have your Christmas chocolate filled with the creamy goodness of this rich liqueur – and keep the bottle for the main event. Perhaps best of all, this reliably wonderful advent series is much cheaper than most on our list today… even though it still retains the class and elegance of a high-end gift.
What’s Your Advent Choice?
Regardless of whether you have a small or a grown child, a boy, a girl, or an NB child, there is an advent calendar that will work for you. From high-end and spectacular to affordable luxury – our list has it all. Find what works for you or try out more than one because you fall in love with the idea of it. Anything is possible with a little Christmas imagination… just ask Santa Claus.
