Gifts for the Lover of the Christmas Calendar
In our opinion, the phrase “a gift that keeps on giving” is too widely used these days. Moreover, he describes one very specific type of gift so well: the Advent calendar. What could be more fun and more festive than a gift that contains at least a dozen additional gifts to open one by one every day? Whether you hold onto the religious significance of counting down the days to Christmas, there has been an undeniable boom in the advent calendar market in recent years, whether your preferences lean towards beauty products, candy, toys, or high-end spirits. Why not take advantage of it?
Charbonnel Et Walker Advent Calendar
The classic Advent calendar version is filled with chocolate and there are tons of options to choose from. In fact, you can go to the pharmacy right now and buy several options offering unflavored mass market chocolates in holiday packaging. For something a little more sophisticated, why not opt for exquisitely packaged chocolates and an assortment of truffles from the iconic London chocolate house? Perfect for the person on your list who, however, cannot shop.
L’Occitane Moments Calendar
For the lotion lover in your life (what? Don’t make it weird!) French brand L’Occitane continues to produce some of the most coveted luxury soaps, oils and emollients on the market. Their calendar includes soaps, lotions, shower gels, shampoos and balms. For those looking forward to signing up for Birchbox or Sephora Play every month, this is a real dunk.
Christmas Dog Calendar
It’s like you’re going to get through the holiday season without doing something a little extravagant for your beloved pet? You are welcome. There is no guarantee that your faithful friend will show restraint and eat just one milk bone a day, but listen, you can give him a little indulgence in Christmas decorum. After all, he’s a dog.
Ciaté London Nail Polish Set
Another gift for those who love swatches, Ciaté’s Mini Mani Month nail polish set consists of 19 swatches, one full-size nail polish to better experiment with new hues throughout the holiday party season and New Years (and to safely re-gift options you don’t like as stocking fillers).
Lego Friends Advent Calendar
When it comes to fun holiday sets, Lego has always dominated the market and their New Year calendar offerings don’t disappoint. They have a variety of options to choose from, but we’re partial to this snowy scene, where each new spot on the calendar unlocks new characters, animals, and accessories to add to the mix.
Jo Malone Advent Calendar
Another admittedly extravagant option is provided by British perfume mogul Joe Malone: their coveted annual Advent calendar featuring samples of colognes, candles and other goodies that will make their recipient’s home a very high-end spa scent.
