We are ready and raring to get the Christmas festivities going this year, which is why we’re even more excited than normal about all the advent calendar releases.
Big brands are launching a wide variety of advent calendars this year, from edible countdowns to beauty and jewellery-filled options.
Chocolate-filled calendars may be the most traditional purchase, but those who are looking for a more adult alternative may find their ears prick up at the news of advent calendars filled with alcoholic treats.
From beer and wine, to stronger spirits such as gin and whiskey, you can treat yourself, or a loved one, to a boozy countdown to the big day.
Those wanting something a little more luxurious can sip on a glass of bubbly every day in the run up to Christmas, as there are a selection of Prosecco and Champagne filled advent calendars too.
