It’s officially December, folks—we’re getting closer and closer to some much needed time with family and friends, but at the same time our days for holiday shopping are also coming to a close. If you’re in need of some last minute gift inspo and you’ve missed the train on a full advent calendar (the kind that need to be gifted by the start of the month), may I suggest you go for a smaller sized bunch?
Many cool and fun brands have created a mini-version of the advent calendar, one that’s only 12 days and honestly, I prefer it. Opening gifts every morning for 25 consecutive days can start to sound like a lot of fun in the beginning, but to be honest, it’s a lot to remember!
Luckily for you, I’ve rounded up some of the best advent calendars on the market for you to look through. I’m talking beauty, games, and even wine. Keep reading to see which ones you can grab before the season for giving is officially over.
