Advent Calendars That Make the Christmas Countdown 24X More Fun

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE a good advent calendar. There’s something so satisfying about popping a piece of cardboard or pulling open a mini drawer to something new every day, whether it’s a piece of chocolate or a pocket-sized lipstick. Plus, it makes the countdown to Christmas much more enjoyable. With so many different kinds of advent calendars out there—from perfume samplers to jewelry assortments to even an advent calendar full of dog treats for your beloved pup—I just had to bring you the best advent calendars out there.

As a kid, all I wanted were the candy calendars filled with chocolate Santas, mini peppermint sticks and marshmallow snowmen⁠. Sadly, however, my Jewish parents weren’t super into subscribing to Christmas traditions, so I just mooched off of my gentile friends’ calendars whenever I could. But now that I am an adult with my own bank account from which I can buy all the advent calendars I want, I find myself less drawn to the candy-filled calendars and more drawn to the boozy and beauty ones. I mean, waking up everyday in December to a fun-sized beauty surprise or mini tequila bottle sounds exactly like the kind of holiday cheer I need in my life.

There’s truly an advent calendar out there for every type of person—whether you’re a beauty fanatic, wine expert or tea aficionado—and we’ve lined up some of our favorites on offer right now. Scroll down below to shop them all.
