Updated With Savings: 2021’s Best Adult Advent Calendars Feature Skincare Icons, Teas, Sex Toys & More
Update: Now that it's mid-December, most of the countdown calendars on this list have sold out. But the remaining ones — they're on sale up to 50% off. Prices have been adjusted to reflect markdowns.
Since COVID-19, holidays have not been what they used to be. Restrictions around travel and gatherings have made even the simplest family get-togethers difficult to plan for. A countdown calendar is a simple way to bring some joy to your every day, especially as Canadians brace for another winter in the midst of a fourth wave.
Here is our roundup of the best advent calendars for 2021. Some of these picks you may recognize from last year's post. Others, like Net-a-Porter's 25 Days of Beauty, (which is sadly already sold out) are quickly becoming as iconic as the skincare and beauty products they're packed with. All this to say, you'll want to snap your fave up as soon as it goes on sale to avoid any disappointment.
With more companies investing in these annual bundles, the benefits for consumers keep growing. Calendars in this slideshow are packed with a mix of bestselling and cult favourites as well as limited-edition goods that can't be found elsewhere. With savings behind every door, they are an especially great way to explore the product ranges of more pricey brands and retailers. Bookmark this page because we'll keep adding to the list right up until it's time to crack open that first door.
