I know, I know–it’s not even Halloween yet. I hate rushing the seasons, too. But if I want to buy a fancy beauty/candle/gourmet Advent calendar (and I do), I need to think about getting it soon. They sell out quickly!
Are you familiar with these calendars? You probably know about chocolate Advent calendars–the ones where you open a little cardboard door each day in December and pop out a piece of (poor quality) chocolate. I’ve gotten one of those every year since I was I child–I love them. But there are fancier Advent calendars available, too, that are filled with little gifts–especially in the UK (lucky ducks). Check out these 2015 round-ups here and here. (And this link shows last year’s calendars, if you’re interested.)
I totally want a Tarte, Lush, QVC, Yankee Candle, or Charlotte Tilbury calendar! The only one of these that’s available already is the Yankee Candle calendar:
If makeup/skincare isn’t your thing, check the list below for some of the other kinds of Advent calendars I’ve seen online:
– Gourmet chocolate (Lindt, etc.)
– Lego (with City, Friends, and Star Wars versions)
– Playmobil (numerous themes!)
– Kinder Surprise (the chocolate eggs with toys inside!)
Are you going to snag a fancy Advent calendar this year? I want them all! I think most of these will hit stores right after Halloween, so I plan to start checking sites daily on November 1st!
10/27/15 Edited to add: The 2015 QVC calendar is now available here! The Charlotte Tilbury calendar is now available here…but for $200! (Nope!) I recently saw the Tarte “Petite Treats” set on either the Sephora or Ulta website, too, but the goodies were packaged in a makeup bag for 2015, not an Advent calendar. I can’t find the set online now, though–maybe it already sold out?
