Welcome to the first of our annual Christmas Gift Guides. With the first Sunday in Advent only being yesterday and the first window of your Advent Calendars, due to open on Wednesday, there couldn’t have been a better time to focus on them.
Sorry what do you mean you haven’t got an Advent Calendar ?!?! They, like Christmas sweaters have had somewhat of a revolutionary Renaissance in certain years. Long gone are the calendars of our yoof when it was a rather depressed looking Robin or a Deflated, pathetic snowman behind the cardboard window. Nowadays, the least you’ll find is a Cadbury’s mini chocolate and the best? Well my friend take a look below.
New research has found Charlotte Tilbury’s beauty advent calendar to be the most popular calendar this Christmas season. Charlotte Tilbury’s Beauty Dreams and Secrets was revealed as the most in-demand beauty advent calendar of 2021. Priced at £150, the calendar includes 12 of the brand’s best-selling makeup and skincare products in a handy reusable box and is now sold out, BUT don’t despair my friends we have alternatives to suit everyone and anyone !
The calendars are available in ladies’ and men’s sizes and include a pair of fun and festive socks for every day of December in the run up to Christmas Day. That’s 25 different pairs of quality bamboo socks hidden inside the double-door gift package, each in their own individual festive gift box.
OK so although not technically an Advent Calendar, something that you can enjoy throughout the 12 days of Christmas is the 12 Days Of Harry’s Calendar Countdown to Christmas, one gift at a time. Features a variety of Harry’s favourites and grooming must-haves packed in a calendar with perforated windows. Comes with shower, shaving, and skin-care essentials including:
Travel-size Shower Gel in three scents. Orange Truman razor, four blade refills and a travel cover. Exfoliating Face Wash, Daily Face Lotion with sunscreen, Post Shave Balm, Post-Shave Mist.
Then we have for the Chocolate lover or shall we say lovers !!!!! Hotel Chocolat, whether you like Milk, dark,White Chocolate or something in between they have something for your delectation. This particular example, the The Grand Advent Calendar. Not only does this contain twin packs of truffles, festive chocolate slabs and Selector packs. You’ll also find an array of tipples, beauty products, and maybe even a sachet of insatiably creamy hot chocolate. After all, variety is the spice of life, and our showstopping calendar has a little bit of everything to show the full potential of the heroic cacao bean.
