December is now right around the corner, meaning it’s time for one, very important part of Christmas: advent calendars. A lovely way to countdown to the 25th, who doesn’t enjoy being able to open a new window each morning and seeing what’s waiting behind it?
However, while it used to be a simple choice between chocolate or a more traditional style, there’s now loads of options. So, to help you select the right advent calendar, either for yourself or for your loved ones, here’s a quick guide.
While some people love sweet foods, others prefer savoury. Whether this is you, or you’re buying a calendar for someone who would choose savoury every time, then how about a cheese one?
Filled with delicious varieties, including favourites like cheddar and Red Leicester, this is sure to please the cheese lover in your life.
For those with a bit of a sweet tooth, there are endless choices when it comes to advent calendars. For a timeless classic, there’s a Thorntons chocolate calendar, or for something more unusual, you can take your pick from sweets, biscuits, marshmallows, popcorn and fudge.
If you’re looking for a way to pamper someone this Christmas – maybe your friend is a new mum, or you want to say thank you to a special person who’s helped you out this year – then go for beauty.
Packed with everything from nail varnishes and cosmetics, to bath bombs and organic moisturisers, there’s options available from their favourite big beauty brands.
Whether they enjoy a Christmas tipple, or prefer to sit with a brew in their new festive pyjamas, a drinks calendar is a great choice, both for yourself and as a gift.
There’s so many to choose from for 2018, from prosecco, wine and gin, to beer, whisky and spirits. Or for hot drinks, there’s also tea, coffee and hot chocolate.
If none of these appeal to you, or if you want to give something unique, then how about something completely different?
Know someone who’s into fitness and nutrition? Choose a protein calendar. For kids, there’s loads of toy-filled ones. Want to treat the special person in your life? Select a jewellery option. For someone who’s into DIY, there’s styles with tools behind each window.
For home lovers, there’s candle options. Know a writer? A stationery one could be ideal. Or for Christmas lovers, choose from bauble calendars. There’s also pet options filled with tasty treats for your favourite furry friend.
Hopefully this guide helps you pick yours from the endless selection available this year!
