For whatever reason, last holiday season was the season of advent calendars.
Advent calendars, for those of you who didn’t go to Catholic school, are used to count down the days until the celebration of the birth of the baby Jesus (i.e. Christmas!). Traditionally, these cardboard calendars feature tiny numbered flaps, that when opened, reveal a small religious photo or piece of chocolate (to keep the kids entertained).
Nowadays, though, there is an advent calendar for nearly every niche. From specialty teas and skincare products to fine jewelry and items from luxury fashion houses, brands have really capitalized on the pre-Xmas anticipation with uniquely designed calendars filled with a selection of surprise goodies.
So we’ve rounded up the best advent calendars for 2022 that’d make a fun gift for yourself or anyone on your holiday shopping list this year.
While the countdown doesn’t start until December 1st, these boxes have a reputation for selling out fast, so if one catches your eye, we suggest picking it up pronto.
