Advent calendars for festive fun
Advent calendars are a must-have for any home at Christmas time, but you don't have to be limited to the same type every year. If you want to switch it up and make it personal or gift someone a thoughtful spin on their usual calendar, you can find a full range on eBay. From those featuring inspiring phrases, chocolate filled windows and advent calendars packed full of cosmetics, there's something for everyone.
For the ultimate personal touch, select an advent calendar with no filling. That way, you'll have total control of what goes behind each window, giving your friend or loved one a real surprise. Other designs without a filling can be used year after year as a seasonal staple in your home. With calendars including festive images, sensory materials and door hanging designs, you can choose the perfect version for you and your family.
Chocolate advent calendars
Whatever your age, chocolate advent calendars can give you that special festive feeling like no other. Big brands like Nestle and Cadburys have versions with favourite chocolatey treats behind each door. You can also find specially designed calendars for events like Ramadan.
Fashionistas will love a cosmetics-filled advent calendar. It gives you a different option if chocolate isn't your thing, mixing things up if you or a loved one fancies a change. Brands like Technic and Selfridges design festive calendars with all their best-selling beauty and cosmetics in mini size. Nail varnishes, bath and body treats and makeup varieties are just some of those available.
Pictures and phrases
