In the Mad Beauty 12 Days of Christmas is a lovely calendar. Behind each door is a surprise beauty gift, not so much of a surprise now you can see all of the contents. This is one of the few beauty advent calendars this year that doesn’t actually have any makeup in it, besides lip balms. This calendar is great for anyone that would love a little bit of pampering this Christmas.

This is a fun advent calendar that you can either open every other day or you can use it for the twelve days of Christmas. A bit of pampering after Christmas and into the new year. The calendar retails at £10 and can be purchase from Find Me A


Mad Beauty Advent Calendar

Adult Advent Calendar

The mad beauty advent calendar is a super calendar. A fantastic, great quality, make up treat is to be found behind each door. There are some really nice blushers with a bit of shimmer to them. A couple of eye shadow quads. The metallic one is stunning and compliments most outfits. Lip gloss, nail varnish or more.

You get a lot of make up for you money. This calendar isn’t one to buy for a mac obsessed make up fan, however I guarantee other make up fans will be happy. Young girls in their late teens would love this calendar too. A little bit of grown up luxury. The calendar is a bargain costing just £24.99. It is currently on offer at a reduced price! Available from Find Me A


There is also a great range of alcoholic advent calendars available to buy. What a great way to get festive during the Christmas season.


The Whiskey advent calendar


Adult Advent Calendars


With 24 drams of wonderful whisky delights, this calendar is one of a kind. Behind each of the 24 windows lies a different 3cl Drinks By The Dram. Inside there are single malt Scotch whiskies to exciting Irish and American expressions, and delicious world whiskies. There’s even a whisky worth £600 a bottle squirreled away inside!

This great calendar is on the pricey side, however if you appreciate fine whisky then this calendar is for you. The calendar costs £149.95 and can be purchased from Masters of Malts website .


It has to be said that I am still a fan of chocolate advent calendars.  There are a  range of chocolate calendars available to buy. Aimed at adults these calendars and are more luxurious than the standard chocolate advent calendar.


Hotel Chocolat Advent Calendar

Adult Advent

A grown up chocolate calendar with 24 chocolate treats. Each day when you open a door you will find a festive chocolate shape. reindeer, snowmen, penguins and Christmas tree’s, just to name a few. Behind each chocolate are some fun witty quotes. This adds to the novelty of an adult chocolate calendar.

This sounds like a very tasty advent calendar and at £12.50. A great price for a great calendar. You can purchase the calendar in store or Online.


Thornton’s Classic Advent Calendar


Adult Advent Calendar


This tasty advent calendar is at the top of my list. Hiding behind each window you are bound to find a chocolate you love. There are so many blissful flavours that you will be looking forward to the next day. The chocolates are an assortment from the classic range. The calendar is  a sumptuous way to count yourself down to the big day.

This particular calendar costs £10 and is also part of the three for two range that is currently running in Thorntons. You can purchase this calendar in store and online from the Thorntons Website.


Pringles 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar


Adult Advent Calendar

Not got a sweet tooth? Then this the perfect Advent Calendar for you. The Pringles Advent Calendar features 12 Doors each with a 40g Tube of Pringles behind it. The flavours hiding behind the doors are sour Cream & Onion, Salt & Vingar, Original and Texas BBQ Sauce. The calendar is meant to be for the 12 days of Christmas, I love the idea of a pot of Pringle’s everyday after Christmas and into the new year. However, you can use it as a standard advent but only opening a door every other day.

The thing with Pringle’s is, one you pop you just cant stop. The challenge lies in not opening all the doors at once. The Calendar is a bargain at £7.99 and available at B&M in store.


Duerr’s Jam & Marmalade Individual portions Advent Calendar

Adult Advent Calendar


Looking for a calendar with a difference?  Enjoy a slice of toast on a morning? This calendar could be perfect for you. The Calendar really is unique. Behind 24 doors you will find an individual portion of Strawberry Jam or Marmalade and on the big day there is a pot of Whiskey & Marmalade, which sounds delicious. This is a great advent calendar which will appeal to all ages.

I am looking forward to sampling the jams and marmalade during December. The calendar retails at £9.99 and can be purchased at various places, including Amazon.

    These are so cool! Love the look of the candle one and the jams one is cute too! I had a Thorntons one last year and it was very yummy. Think the bodyshop one is a little on the expensive side!!

    I’m normally a bit old school about Advent Calendars – I like them to have a picture of the Christmas story on the front, although I’m not averse to a bit of chocolate. But having seen the Yankee Candle calendar, I might be tempted to get something a bit different this year!
