Tired of buying the same Advent Calendars? Mix it up – check these out.

You know it’s nearly Christmas, when it comes to December and you are excitedly opening a tiny door each morning!

The tricky part is deciding which advent calendar to get this year. Chocolate, foodie, beauty – the list goes on. Head in your hands, well fear not, I have you covered with a few of my favourites that mix it up a bit. Oh and don’t forget it’s not just for kids, there are lots of adults and even pets options out there. So let’s take a look…

Dairy Free

MOO FREE – Made without lactose or gluten try a vegan chocolate each day.


VERIVAL – Something a bit different. If like me you struggle deciding what to eat in the morning – here are 24 different breakfasts already chosen for you. Result. Includes the option of Chia-strawberry porridge – yummy.


TINC – Fed up of same old chocolate treats, why not mix it up with games and stationery items instead.


MINDFULNESS – Interesting concept with an inspirational surprise to uplift you each day. I may well need some motivation on a wintery morning.

Zero waste

HOLLAND & BARRETT – Looking for a sustainable option. This may work, with a real mix of treats as the photo shows.


ADVENT OF CHANGE – Wonderful option where you will be giving to 24 different charities. Each door tells you who you have helped. Share the love and support a good cause.

MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT – A magical assortment of beauty gifts behind each door. A great way of treating yourself but also a way of being shopping savvy and collecting gifts for friends and loved ones.

Pets (Cats and dogs)

CALTIME – A little dog biscuit every day.

LILY’S KITCHEN – Cat and dog treats


THE TIPSY TREE – Well, maybe leave this until the evening…

Just a few ideas, there are so many options. I have not added prices or retailers as this varies. So good luck with finding your 2019 advent calendar.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas.
