Ever since I was a child opening an Advent calendar has been the most exciting thing for me. The anticipation of the ‘big day’ would build to a crescendo, until those last double doors were opened on the 24th, and Christmas was at last HERE!
I still love Advent calendars and while the ones of my childhood were more simple card affairs (which I still love btw), I have to admit there are now so many exciting ones available that I am not sure my 6-year-old self would have been able to cope.
This is my round-up of all the best Advent calendars 2020 so you can find one that is perfect for you or a loved one. I have broken it down into different sections so you can discover traditional Advent calendars, product-based ones, Advent Calendars filled with ‘eatibles’ (Yum!), reusable Advent Calendars and finally personalised Advent Calendars.
