There are so many different advent calendars out there for kids and adults; LEGO sets, teen picks and even DIY options are just a few of the many you have to choose from. If you haven't checked out the selection at Target this year, the retailer has some exclusive and charming items that are a little different from what you'll find elsewhere.
The tough part is deciding what kind of advent calendar fits your family best. Maybe it's one with candy or small toys or a more simple pick. The Wondershop brand at Target is filled with some really special and reusable calendars that might become part of your family traditions for years to come. There are also Jurassic Park and Pokemon exclusives that have Christmas countdowns you can't find anywhere else.
So don't miss out! We've compiled a list below of some of the best advent calendars Target has to offer this holiday season:
Merry Christmas Hanging Advent Calendar
If this hanging calendar looks familiar, it might be because this style was popular in the '70s and '80s — so it's likely your parents or grandparents had a similar one. We love the simplicity of just moving the tree into numbered pockets and the fact that it can be easily rolled up and stored away for next year.
Wooden Rollercoaster Advent Calendar
While the front of this set is a traditional advent calendar with numbered doors to open, the back is a fun wooden Santa's workshop full of interactive elements. You can collect an elf or festive toy each day, then place it into the wooden slats and watch it slide down like a rollercoaster. There's also a storage bag so the little pieces don't get lost.
Countdown to Christmas
The big eyes make Disney Doorables irresistible, and with 24 different surprise characters, your kid will be well on their way to starting a great collection. Each box includes three special holiday figures.
Nights 'Til Christmas Advent Calendar
This Wondershop choice flips things upside down by counting the days in reverse order. A wreath moves and marks the time until Christmas on a chalkboard-looking backdrop.
City 2023 Advent Calendar
'Jurassic World' 30th Anniversary Advent Calendar
This Target exclusive has 24 toys to unwrap, including characters, dinosaurs and gate pieces. When all the items are opened, they combine to make a playset where the dinos are trapped inside a gated pen.
Fabric Fish Calendar
Cat lovers will appreciate this Meowy Christmas sentiment. The fabric calendar can be reused annually, and the little star fits in the numbered pockets.
Storage Truck Christmas Calendar
Santa and a snowman are at the driver's seat of this vibrant red truck. Kids will adore the bright colors, and you'll fill each storage box with small items of your choosing.
Wood Ski Lodge Advent Calendar
This wooden ski chalet advent calendar has empty spots that you can fill each year with your own tiny trinkets or treats to unwrap each day. Try bite-size candy bars, little toys or mini ornaments.
Pokémon Deluxe Holiday Calendar
Gotta catch 'em all! Get ready for 24 days of cute characters with this Target exclusive. Familiar favorites like Pikachu and Squirtle are in the mix, along with accessories and rare Pokémon to round out the holiday scene.
Wood House Countdown Calendar
Kids won't mind that these little houses are simple on the outside as long as you stuff them with fun goodies. The wood and white combo fits with many decor styles, so you won't mind it on display all month long.
Wooden Train Station Advent Calendar
Each day, kids can unbox a train car or piece of track. By Christmas, they'll have a durably constructed wooden train to use. The back of the box features a decorative Christmas depot to make their playset more festive.
Kisses Advent Calendar
If you prefer the simplicity of a chocolate calendar, the kids can get a daily Hershey kiss behind each numbered door with this one. And at under $10, it is affordable to get more than one if you've got multiple kids (or want to treat yourself!).
Magic Tears Claus Advent Calendar
Fans of the animated series Cry Babies will be psyched to get this Claus doll along with his pet reindeer. The other 22 days are packed with accessories, and while many other advent options have really tiny figures, these are slightly bigger.
Wooden Advent Calendar
It might be years before you let the kids hang the breakable ornaments, but this wooden one will give them their own tree to decorate thanks to adorable ornaments they can add daily.
My First Advent Calendar
Ages two and up can open the doors to find chunky wooden toys. There's also an included storybook, and each page corresponds with the animal friend they opened that day.
Pop! Pocket: 'Five Nights At Freddy's'
With a new movie out, this franchise is back in the spotlight. Your older kids may love the video games and will appreciate the mini Funko Pop! collectibles.
