Adult Advent calendars — because why should kids have all the fun?
Advent calendars have long been a fun way to help kids count down the days until Christmas — keeping the holiday spirit alive (and building plenty of excitement and anticipation) by letting them unbox a small surprise each day leading up to the big holiday. But it’s time we ask why kids should get to have all the fun.
Plenty of Advent calendars out there are suited for the grownup set, representing a range of more mature interests — think less toys, and more books, makeup and skin care, coffee — even chocolates. And who says you can’t buy one for yourself? Let’s make 2023 the year the entire family counts down to Christmas together.
