Everyone loves a gift. But what about a bunch of little gifts hidden within a big gift? It's that time of the year again and advent calendars are gracing the ads on our phones like it's nobody's business.
Previously only filled with tiny Christmas-themed chocolates, advent calendars have become something of a novelty item as they become more oddly specific each year. If you (or your loved ones) don't like chocolate, never fear, there's a wide range of advent calendars out there. From candles and coffee to jewellery and gin, there's an advent calendar to scratch any box-opening itch you, your friends and your family might have.
While there's still a little while to go until December starts, it's best to be organised and make sure you've got your calendar before December 1st, otherwise you'll have advent calendar-opening FOMO. It's real, trust us.
