No matter how old you are, whether you bought it for yourself or were given it, if you go for chocolate surprises, classic drawings, or something altogether more fancy, the advent calendar will always spark a feeling of childlike excitement for Christmas.
But, while we can all agree on a love of advent calendars, there are many variables in advent calendar use. While some decide to blatantly disregard the date system, consuming all the surprises if and when they desire, others stick staunchly to the one-per-day law. It’s fitting, then, that you can get an advent calendar containing just about anything, suitable for just about any advent calendar tactic.
From luxury grooming to Lego, this roundup has a special advent calendar for everyone, and as the advent calendar is really the first concrete sign of Christmas every year, it’s important to make it a good one. So, if you’ve had enough of the regular, cardboard-flavored chocolates, we might have just the thing for you.
