With Christmas literally just around the corner, this can only mean one of many things. It’s finally time to pick out the best advent calendar to indulge in this festive season.
Gone are the days when you simply peeled back those colourful cardboard doors to reveal tiny, little religious pictures. Oh no, the advent calendar scene has come quite far over the years.
Nowadays we have calendars filled with luxury makeup surprises or 24 delicious scented candles, we even have erotic sex toy calendars and ones filled with 24 different pairs of festive socks. No matter your preference, there’s an advent calendar for you.
The only problem — they’re notoriously expensive. Yes, we know you’re saving an arm in the long run, due to the contents of these calendars often being worth more than double what they cost, but there’s still a part of us that misses the fact that we used to spend a measly €5 on our month of morning treats, and be happy out with it!
That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of the best alternative advent calendars for €20 or less.
