I know, I know, it’s not even November yet but in my defence advent calendars sell out FAST! So this year I am going to share with you my favourite advent calendars for 2014. There’s a bit of a mix in here but because it’s me I think they’re leaning towards the beauty end of the spectrum. Anyway let’s get on to the shinys!!
This first one is for all my dear vegans out there. I have a few friends who have dairy allergies and really miss chocolate so having a dairy free chocolate advent calendar this year would be right up their street!
Who doesn’t like whiskey? This one has a normal and a premium edition each with 24 3cl bottles of whiskey. Not only is it absolutely adorable, you get to try all kinds of different types of whiskey.
This is one for all the nail polish lovers out there. You get 23 mini pots with either polish or nail effects and for Christmas eve, a full size nail varnish and a beautiful Christmas-y sparkle.
This is a great little nerdy countdown clock. This Intructable shows step by step how to make a countdown timer for Christmas. This would be a great project for anybody just beginning to get into electronics and understanding how things work. you have to buy the components individually yourself but Maplin, Farnell or RS should have everything you could possibly need.
This one is full of Body Shop goodies, everything from nail polish to body lotions. I really like the Body Shop and this has a great mix of all their products in it.
It’s not a secret that I love firey, smell producing things in my home. So when i stumbled upon this smelly fire producing advent calendar I may or may not have squeeled. A lot. Anyway if you also enjoy things that smell good and fire you may enjoy this advent calendar.
LEGO is basically the best toy ever invented by anybody ever in the history of the universe. Every year they bring out a couple of advent calendars and every year I lust after the LEGO Star Wars one. They’re just so cute!!
Benefit was one of the first makeup brands which I really got into when I first started up with make up. I loved the packaging and how grown up I felt when a makeup artist showed me how to use High Beam. This year they are bringing out another advent calendar full of sample sizes of some of their bestsellers.
I have a tea addiction, I admit it, I just love it all black, green, white, tisane I’m all over it. This year there are a few tea based advent calendars out there but I thought this one was just too adorable to not be on the list. 24 2 cup servings of different loose leaf teas with a tea strainer included. what could be better?!
This one is by far the most expensive on the list. It is full of Jo Malone cologne and body cremes, in this beautifully illustrated box. I love this advent calendar and am seriously considering getting it this year.
It’s totally reasonable to get a few of these and just start the countdown 72 days before Christmas right? RIGHT…?!
