Make the countdown to Christmas extra fun with a unique Advent calendar
Do you remember the days when you counted down to Christmas Eve with your brother or sister and got to eat a chocolate from your Advent calendar every day? Nowadays, there are more and more variations of Advent calendars that are also great fun for adults, including things like wellness products or different kinds of tea. Did you know that you can create your very own Advent calendar? Let us give you our tips and ideas.
Advent calendar fun
How many days until Christmas? An Advent calendar always starts on the first day of December and counts down to day 24, which is Christmas Eve. But not every Advent calendar has presents for every day. When you create your own Advent calendar, you have total control. You can make it as personal and unique as possible, from the way you display the gifts, for example with envelopes, or mini Christmas stockings, to the gifts and the thoughts behind them. Just imagine your partner, your children or yourself opening a specially made gift every single day.
Special Advent calendar gifts
It’s not about how big the gift is, it’s the thought that counts. Showing those around you that you are thinking of them and appreciate them. Before you create your calendar, it’s important to think of and get all the gifts together. Perhaps the recipient you have in mind has a wish list that you can use for inspiration. Determine your budget in advance and calculate how much you can spend on each gift. A small, sweet personalised gift is perfect! Take a look at the following options:

Alternative Advent calendar gift ideas
Did you know that the gifts in an Advent calendar don’t necessarily all have to be physical gifts? You can alternate the gift days with a voucher for a day trip to a place the recipient has wanted to visit for a long time, or create a kind of gift voucher for a cooking workshop or a tasty homemade meal, for example. If you’ll be cooking for the recipient, our personalised olive oil is a great way to make your gift extra special, and so are our personalised salt and pepper grinders. Alternatively, a voucher for a cosy evening on the couch with the delicious snacks and hot chocolate will always go down a treat. Relax with chocolate milk in your own enamel mug and personalised socks. Which of these options will you use to surprise your loved ones?
