Christmas Advent

Christmas has always been magical for me, and I really LOVE the festive season!

My Grandma and Mum would always make it very special and as a child advent calendars were the exciting build upto Christmas, but the older I get the more often I am on a diet so a bite of chocolate starting the day really isn’t what I need!! My parent’s have always got us ‘1st December’ pressies, this could be new Christmas bedding, new pj’s, thick socks, a bottle of something, a candle, etc, etc. It could be anything that will get us in the Christmas spirit…  Not that I need any help! Maybe a bit excessive, but who cares. We love it and it’s something I will continue with my children!

I do love to have a picture advent calendar in the kitchen as you can get some truly gorgeous ones and really like the idea of making an advent calendar, or buying one that you can put you’re own little gifts in but it needs time, and this year I just don’t have enough of it!!!

I couldn’t quite believe the amount of advent calendars out there that aren’t chocolate or pictures!! I’ve been looking around and here are some of my favourites!

Have you got your eye on one in particular? I think I would like the Jo Malone and maybe the Charbonnel et Walker one too!
