Tis the season, well maybe but not quite. Christmas may not be here yet, but the time to invest in one of the many 2018 Advent Calendars is now. Not only are these a great treat for yourself, but make a great gift to perk up the months before Christmas.

Today we have rounded up some of our favourites, from beauty to bubbles we have got you covered.

For the Home

One of the best part of the festive periods is the smell of the season. A great way to kick-start this sensory experience is with this Yankee Candle advent calendar. Featuring all of Yankee’s signature Christmas scents such as Christmas Magic, The Perfect Tree, Spiced White Cocoa and our favourite Christmas Eve.

What better way to get into the festive season than with the warm fragrance of Christmas.

The Beauty Lover

This calendar from Net-A-Porter brings a multitude of luxury brands to sample on the run up to Christmas. With brands like Omorovicza, Le Labo, Charlotte Tilbury and Sunday Riley in the 25 drawers. From masks, lip products to shampoo this calendar has got the lot.

Highlights include Charlotte Tilbury’s award-winning ‘Goddess Skin Clay Mask’ which we highly recommend, and a full size Marc Jacobs Lipstick.

The Health Conscious

Christmas is a time for indulgence, however, the run up need not be filled with sugar. This Chocolate calendar from Hotel Chocolat is made entirely from 100% Ecuadorian Dark chocolate. Not only is this sugar free but it is suitable for vegans as well. A great way to count down the days.

The Fizz Lover

We all know someone who loves a drink, and this is a great option for them. Each door features a 200ml bottle of sparkling wine including Prosecco, Cava and Sparkling Pinot Rose. There is even a special treat for the 24th! By no means is this the cheapest of all the options, but quite possibly the most fun…

For the Pamperer

Susanne Kaufmann is the doyenne of natural skincare and has made her name developing a scientifically-proven range of natural skin and body care that promotes a powerful sense of wellbeing.

This calendar features luxurious bath oils, pampering body creams, nourishing hair products and fragrant body oils. This is a surefire way to keep the month before Christmas calm and zen.

For the Tea Drinker

Tea is a big market, and it wouldn’t be Christmas without a steaming mug of Tea. This year, sip your way to the biggest day of the year with Bird&Blend’s Luxury Tea calendar. Now in it’s 3rd iteration there are more teas than ever, with loose leaf tea bags and matcha all making an appearance. A reasonably priced alternative.


That is only some of the amazing advent calendars available this year. These are our favourites that we know would make our December amazing. When we do finally pick ‘the one’ we cant be sure if we will be able to resit opening all the doors, or even be able to save it until December. We wont tell if you don’t!
