I don’t know about you, but growing up I almost always had a pretty paper or chocolate filled calendar to countdown the days until Christmas. Nowadays, I still love to have one in our home to welcome the festive feeling each day! I just love the nostalgia that comes from peeking behind the closed doors to discover something new. It seems this year, more than ever advent calendars are big business and you can find fun and unique versions with almost anything behind those countdown doors!
While this year I’m making my own advent calendar (one I’ll reuse every year) which I’ll fill myself with little treats I still loved browsing all the amazing ones available this year. Perfect for vintage lovers, beauty buffs and those who want to have a little bit of hygge in their home, I’ve rounded up a few of my favourite Advent Calendars for 2017.
The Prettiest Advent Calendars for 2017
This beautiful advent calendar features two iconic prints by William Morris, Golden Lily & Strawberry Thief. Behind each door you’ll find pretty handbag and travel sized products such as hand creams, bath fizzers, relaxing foam baths & energizing bath salts.
Who doesn’t love candles? Especially around this time of year when you want to embrace that cosy, hygge feeling, this dreamy candle-filled advent calendar is perfect. Each door is filled with a scented tealight in fragrances such as Sparkling Cinnamon (my favourite!), Snowflake Cookie, Macaron Treats and more.
Perfect for Disney lovers, this adorable advent calendar is full of beauty essentials, including lip balms, nail files, bath fizzers, body lotion and hand cream. Oh, and did I mention, every single item is pink?!
This one is for all my gin lovers! I’m not a gin drinker myself, but this super pretty gin filled advent calendar definitely caught my eye. With this gin gem, the countdown to Christmas will be merry!
I’m a massive fan of The Vintage Cosmetic Company and have many of their retro-inspired beauty products, with my favourite being the lashes. This darling advent calendar features 25 doors filled with full-size beauty tools or accessories from lashes and sponges to make up brushes and even a cute vintage-floral shower cap!
I love this unique bunting-style advent calendar full of beauty goodies. Prep yourself for the big day with items such as body butter and bubble baths. The perfect To Me, From Me Christmas treat!
From sparkly nail polish to the perfect lippy and everything in-between, the pretty pink Charlotte Tilbury advent calendar features 12 of her best-selling makeup treasures, the perfect beauty finishing touches for a festive night out. The pretty box transforms into the ideal jewellery case when all gifts are open.
This super pretty advent calendar features 25 little drawers each filled with beauty treats in the iconic Laura Ashley floral prints. The calendar, once emptied can be reused year after year which I love!
Possibly my favourite advent calendar of the lot, this one is a tea drinkers dream! Behind each little door, you’ll find tasty and iconic Fortnum and Mason teas such as Christmas Tea, a Ruby Red Christmas Infusion, an Apricot, Honey & Lavender Infusion or classic Earl Grey. The perfect way to countdown to Christmas each day!
