24 days, 24 little surprises - December really is the most wonderful time of the year. Even back in the 19th century, people made a ritual of counting down the days until Christmas by putting 24 images on the walls. Today, we have a variety of different advent calendars, from the classic chocolate advent calendar to beautiful designer calendars by top brands. We bring you the most beautiful designer advent calendars that you can fill with little gifts or notes for a loved one.
If you're looking for something a little more exciting than a standard chocolate calendar but don't have enough time to create something homemade from scratch, there are a variety of beautiful advent calendars available that allow you to fill them yourself. Give someone a thoughtful and creative gift for advent, filling each little door or pocket with small gifts and sweets. You can choose exactly what you want to put into each door, creating a personalised advent calendar especially for that special someone. Take a look at the huge variety of designer advent calendars for that personal touch. The House advent calendar by ferm Living is a particularly popular choice.
Advent candles are a nice alternative to personalised advent calendars and they also make a great gift for the holiday season.
