Advent Calendars 2018

This year I have gone a bit extra with the advent calendars. I love the usual choccie ones but wanted something a bit more this year.

In this post I am going to tell you which advents we have for our family of three this year.

For Mum

For myself this year I have gone for a luxury advent chocolate advent calendar and a beauty one too.

Everyone needs a chocolate a day on the lead up to Xmas but why not have a little beauty treat too.

For my chocolate calendar its no shock to anyone that knows me that I love Thornton’s chocolate- This year I have the continental calendar full of luxury yummy treats. The first of December cannot come quick enough.

It contains 24 individual chocolates fill the calendar in milk, white and dark chocolate and I am going to savour every last one.

For my beauty advent I have chosen the Amazon Advent calendar. It contains a combination of 24 products and deluxe samples from some of our most-loved beauty brands.

Pull out the box with the relevant date and open it up to reveal your beauty treat. The future boxes will then appear by dropping down. Its a fab way to Try new products and brands across skin care, hair care, make-up and nail care.

For Dad

Drew is not a massive commercial chocolate fan, he likes out of the box brands. This year I have got him the Fairtrade Advent

Traidcraft stands for changing people’s lives through fair trade, saving vanishing traditional skills from extinction, and celebrating a world of creativity and culture through quality fair trade products. We’re the original fair trade pioneers, and advocate the importance of organic farming, sustainability, and transparency to the lives of growers and artisans around the world. And we’re not stopping there.

For the alternate advent I have got drew the Beard advent as he is one of the new age bearded men. This Advent Calender Containing 24 Different Scents the Bearded fans will love this utlimate selection of miniture treats in this luxurious calender. All his Bearded Christmas’s have come at once.

For Our Son

For his chocolate calendar he has a Thornton’s one too- From the classic Christmas story of the Snowman. We have the basic 24 chocolate advent but you can get the deluxe version of this with a little chocolate personalised plaque in too.

Now for Parker’s alternate calendar this is my favourite one by far this year. The Schleich farm world advent. Everyday you open a piece towards the farm yard theme. This is suitable from 3 upwards and I love the fact that this toy will last way beyond the Christmas count down. These animals are super high quality and has many other animals we can purchase to keep building the collection.

What advents are you buying this year? A traditional chocolate or something a little extra?
