The Best Advent Calendars of 2018

The alternative advent calendars for when you want more than chocolate...

How is it November already? As the cold sets in and the nights get shorter, there’s only one thing on our minds: Christmas. And what comes before Christmas? Advent calendars.

Growing up, Advent calendars were all about cheap chocolate before breakfast, but in true millennial style, Advent calendars have grown up a bit.

There are so many great options out there, with some healthy and some very unhealthy options, it's also no longer about chocolate - so we’ve chosen the most spectacular Advent calendars that you need to try this December!

1. Cowshed Beauty Advent Calendar - £90

Cowshed advent calendar

Need we say more? This Christmas countdown has 24 of the best cowshed products, which are all natural. Also, probably one of the best looking Advent Calendars this year, with a bespoke illustration of Babington House by Clare Melinsky. 

2. Candy Kittens Vegan Advent Calendar - £12

These vegan gourmet sweets are gluten-free, so they’re great if you’re looking for a sweet treat in December, or if you’ve got to avoid all the finger food at Christmas parties! There are a few extra half days on the calendar too, which helps get through some of those holiday-season moments!

3. Happy Socks Advent Calendar - £149

Give that special someone a happy holiday season with the 24-pack Advent Calendar Gift Box. Featuring one brilliant pair of socks per day, rather than a stocking full of socks, how about a calendar full of them?

4. Selfridges Glam Sparkle Beauty Advent Calendar - £130 

Counting down the days until the big event is much more fun when you can treat yourself every day with something a little more practical. Selfridges have put together this Glam Sparkle calendar, with the help of best-selling brands Kiehl’s, Lancôme, Urban Decay, Viktor & Rolf and YSL. Whilst your shopping, come and visit us in the foodhall and pick up a half-price Breakfast Shake using the code: ADVENT (valid until 01/12/18).

5. Hotel Chocolat Vegan Advent Calendar - £12.50

This is Made purely of ground cocoa nibs, and nothing else. The chocolate’s supposed to have a smoky, savoury and surprisingly mellow flavour. Dark chocolate’s a great source of antioxidants, which will benefit your body throughout the Christmas party season!

6. Bird and Blend Matcha Tea - £65

Christmas can be a little stressful, but this Matcha Tea advent calendar is a fine excuse to treat yourself to a little break every day. There is a total of 91 servings of matcha in this advent calendar, making sure you are naturally energetic throughout the Christmas festivities.

7. The Jo Malone Advent Calendar - £300

This ornamental Advent calendar oozes luxury. It’s the fourth year that Jo Malone have released this seasonal special, set behind an illustrated package of their London townhouse, the calendar features 24 mini candles, colognes, oils and cremes. One of the candles is the Frosted Cherry & Clove, a surefire way to set the scene for Santa.
