This time, we wanted to offer you an essential for the holiday season: the advent calendar. It’s a bit of an appetizer that lasts throughout December and that puts us in the bath slowly but surely. Here, we will not offer you major brands or thematic calendars. We wanted to offer you calendars to fill in yourself, less commercial, and more authentic.
WHAT TO FILL YOUR ADVENT CALENDAR WITH?
But with what to fill this famous advent calendar? Sweets or chocolates, tangerines, and clementines, sweet words, paper toys (paper figurines to assemble yourself), little recycling games, a voucher for a hug… Small boxes to fill in, a nice decor with Santa Claus leading up to 25, and a minimum space requirement. Perfect for counting down as a family with the children until Christmas Day.
MADE IN FRANCE COTTON WALL ADVENT CALENDAR
Another family advent calendar with this 2nd model but this time it’s a fabric calendar that hangs on the wall. Pine green, it is both trendy and space-saving. It is made up of small pockets that will allow you to slip small gifts to wait until Christmas. The big bonus is that it is made in France.
WOODEN ADVENT CALENDAR TO COUNT DOWN THE MONTH OF DECEMBER
What we like here is that the emphasis is not on gifts but the count. Christmas being a sufficiently commercial period like that, we may want to celebrate Advent without gifts.
ADVENT CALENDAR WHITE AND NATURAL BOOK
In the same spirit as the 1st advent calendar proposed, we come back with small boxes to fill in but this time with a calendar in 2 parts with decorations. It will easily find its place on the buffet and will be stored just as easily when the holiday season is over.
TRENDY AND CLEAN DESIGN LETTERS ADVENT CALENDAR
For the big kids that we are, there are also advent calendars that are a little less childish. We really like the one from Design Letters which is clean, in a pretty deep green.
ADVENT CALENDAR SIGN TO MOVE FORWARD IN THE MONTH OF DECEMBER
There too it is a question of counting more than of gifts. Just a little wreath to move every day until December 25 at the top of the tree made of numbers.
