Alternative Advent Calendars | 2019 Edition
Count down to Christmas this year with our top 10 unique advent calendars. Choose from boozy breakfasts to chocolate surprises with some interesting options along the way.
This make-up advent calendar from Charlotte Tilbury is the ultimate magic gift to count down to Christmas with. There are 12 doors to open with a range of full and travel sized beauty products with a total worth of over £195!
Featuring 24 days of all things chocolate, you can share this one with a loved one or just treat yourself. With 8 different flavours throughout the festive period, you can experience the true Christmas spirit every day and look forward to a hot chocolate at the end of a wintery cold day.
Something different to the usual chocolates is this, the world’s first popcorn advent calendar back for 2019! Styled in a Victorian shop-front box, you get to open 24 doors and find 12 unique flavours of Joe & Seph’s popcorn.
Calling all prosecco fans! This clock style countdown comes with 12 bottles of fizz! It is fun, quirky and a brilliant way to count down to Christmas with a little daily tipple. Also, the clock is refillable so you can re-use for other events or next year and the clock actually ticks round too!
We couldn’t do an advent calendar count down without our favourite Molton Brown. Every morning enjoy a luxury treat from bath, to home fragrances and even more. Open the art-deco style box and enjoy new scents including this years’ edition, Bizarre Brandy.
There is no better way to count down to Christmas than with something personalised and this stationary calendar is that and more. As seen in Stylist Magazine, Red Magazine and Grazia, you get 24 beautiful items including notecard sets, luxury pens and even a gold envelope opener.
This healthy alternative is great for those avid ramblers throughout the Lake District or anyone who loves an energy boost every now and again. This year the calendar is completely Vegan friendly and includes a combination of 6 different flavours for something a bit healthier than a chocolate option but still just as tasty.
BEER 52 have pulled it out the bag this year because you get 24 fresh craft beers from all over the world so that you can really have a ‘hoppy’ Christmas. The calendar itself is bright and colourful with their signature illustrations all over, perfect for a gift or just to spoil yourself.
Price: £89.00 or £69.00 pre-order
If beer isn’t for you then we have found the perfect calendar for gin lovers. Partnered with Drinks by the Dram, each of the 24 doors opens to a 30ml wax-sealed bottle of gin from the worlds’ first independent gin bottler. Check out the flavours included online or just keep it a surprise for every day!
Of course, we have to finish with one traditional chocolate advent calendar and from who else better than Hotel Chocolat. This calendar for two shares the excitement of opening each door and with 24 doors to open, you really do get 48 truffles to enjoy together throughout the festive season.
