Advent calendars aren’t just for kids, there’s a growing trend in grown-ups treating themselves to the Yuletide tradition too
Liberty beauty calendar £149
This stylish advent calendar sold out last year, which is no surprise, as it contains over £400-worth of products for less than half the price. The luxury goodies on offer include a Diptyque candle, Eve Lom cleanser, and NARS make-up.
Hotel Chocolat calendars £12.50-£26
For those who prefer something more traditional, Hotel Chocolat does chocolate advent calendars with serious cacao content. Choose from milk, dark or white chocolate, or upgrade to the luxurious ‘truffles for two’ version and share the treats.
Lakrids liquorice advent calendar £29.99
If you yearn for something darker, this gourmet truffle advent calendar won’t disappoint. Made by Danish confectioners with quality raw ingredients, each window hides a gourmet experience.
Lego Star Wars advent calendar £24.99
Okay, so Lego might technically be for kids, but we think this highly-collectible Star Wars advent calendar is best left for the grown-ups who can truly appreciate it. Just hang onto the packaging; it might be worth something some day.
Beard oil advent calendar £29.99
Got a furry-faced fella in your life? Keep him looking groomed with this selection of scented beard oils, featuring flavours as diverse and manly as tobacco, fresh-cut grass and, er, ‘steel’.
Seed advent calendar £29.99
If you’re lucky enough to have a garden or an allotment (or perhaps just a really ambitious window-box), you’ll love this selection of 24 different varieties of seed. Supplied in beautifully-illustrated packets adorned with fascinating facts, they’ll grow into plants to remind you of this thoughtful gift throughout the year.
