Are you shopping around to make Christmas even more special this year? Then you will love our pick of the best Advent calendars 2021.
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 2021 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!), and finally reusable Advent Calendars. Click the links or images to be taken to the product to find out more or to purchase.
