One of the most popular last year was the beauty advent calendar 2019, these sold out in record time and this year there are way more Beauty Advent Calendars to choose from. One of the best I have found, a bit pricey but all in a good cause, is the 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar - in support of Macmillan Cancer Support. The price is £85 but the actual value of the gifts inside is over £137! The products include Soap and Glory Body Butter, Sleek MakeUP Liquid Lipstick, Sleek MakeUP Highlighter Palette, tons of No7 Products and Botanics Balms and loads more. The idea behind this is that it is an early Christmas gift, maybe for a loved one that you cannot be with at the moment, or even a special pampering treat for yourself- a bit of self-care in the run-up to Christmas.
There are cheaper options in the beauty space such as Dove Nourishing Secrets, £13.00 exclusive to Amazon, which has an exciting Dove beauty product each day to keep your skin feeling nourished and cared for. These Dove miniatures are also great for travelling and overnight stays. Another less expensive make-up option is Glamza-24 Days of Beauty Treats. Perfect for a teen or young person, priced at £12.99.
Many of the big names in beauty and cosmetics have their own edition this year. Rituals, bareMinerals, Clarins, Benefit, Clinique and Charlotte Tilbury, to name a few, are all getting in on the fun. There are also great ones for Men, such as the Lynx Ice Chill, £13.00, and ClarinsMen 12 Days of Christmas at £60.00.
Another idea in the hunt for an Advent Calendar for men is the Tool gift selection. If you have a handyman in your life, then these will be a great option. The Draper limited edition advent calendar, £31.95, this has 49 pieces of kit to build up your tool kit. What's more, Draper is donating £1.00 to the NHS charities Together in honour of their hard work over the past year!
Enjoy looking your best in the run up to Christmas with this 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar - in support of Macmillan Cancer Support. Also, £2 from every one of these beauty calendars goes to Macmillan Cancer Support.

One of the best Kids Advent Calendars that I have found is the one from BIC. This is stuffed with creative goodies, including 24 Writing Products, 6 Magic Felt Pens, 6 Coloured Pencils, 4 Colouring Crayons, 1 Glue Tube, 1 Graphite Pencil, 1 Eraser, 3 Ball Pens, 24 Postcard and 20 Stickers to colour.

A firm favourite every year has to be the Lego Advent Calendar. This year there are loads of Lego Calendars to choose from, such as Star Wars, Christmas Decorations Sets, Lego City, Harry Potter and lots more. These are a variety of prices that range from around £15 up to £40+
Advent Calendars are not just for kids and there are loads of great Alcohol containing Calendars available. Guinness do a great one that will appeal to the older gents, mini pint shaped chocolates filled with the creamy stout, priced at £25.00. If you wanted something a little stronger then have a go at The Boutiquey Whisky Company, a bit pricey at over £150 but for a true Whisky lover, it will be worth it. The Calendar consists of 24 exceptional handmade 30ml wax-sealed drams that give you a taste of Whisky from all around Scotland. This will warm you up on a cold December evening
If like me you're more of a wine drinker then this is the one for you! Virgin Wines have selected 24 of their most popular bottles of wine and Prosecco from their award-winning range and packed them up so beautifully in an Advent style Box that you can enjoy each day in December. You can choose red or white and there is also a mixed option if you can't decide. This is such a lovely idea to enjoy after a long day, this will set you back £72.00 but will be so worth every penny.
Kids can get their creative juices flowing with every morning in the run up to Christmas. Will keep them much busier than a chocolate will.
There is now an Advent Calendar for everyone including your pets. Cat and Dog treat Calendars are proving more and more popular. There is Make-up, Jewellery, Gin, Tools, Coffee and Tea the list goes on and on. If you just want to opt for something simple, then the good old-fashioned styles of my youth do still exist, and you can enjoy the act of just counting down the days without any gifts or sweets. There is also the Advent Candles which are very relaxing to burn down each evening. This may be something nice to do as you eat your evening meal or unwind and listen to music. However, you choose to count down the days to this Christmas do it safely and enjoy the month ahead.
