I wasn’t sure whether to entitle this as a gift guide as I’m not sure they are gifts in the traditional sense. That said the Smiggle Advent Calendar is one that I would be very tempted to gift to myself each year. Here is this year’s one pictured with a few of the goodies from last year’s calendar so you can get a sense of the loot inside. Stationery heaven!
H on the other hand likes anything with toys in or chocolates. This light up Star Wars themed chocolate advent calendar, from Kinnerton the chocolate makers, has been a big hit here.
We have a reusable advent calendar from Phoenix cards, which we get out each year. Our one is no longer sold, but this one is similar. It’s very traditional and based around the Christmas story.
Our other regular advent is one that involves lots of little penguin books, but again I think it’s no longer available. That said, it’s difficult to beat a penguin for cuteness, so I’ve picked out this lovely penguin calendar from Mothercare. It’s a reusable advent, so it should see many years of happy service.
Do you have any advent calendars that you have used year after year?
