  1. Oh wow. the only advent calendar I have ever had was a cadbury chocolate one lol. Prices are out of my reach but I do love the Palm Beach one…must be the candles catching my attention. I am sure the Lego one would be a good one for the kids though.

  2. I love the Palm Beach Advent calendar. It is perfect for that end of day when relaxation is required.
    Also with the variety of scents you get to try them all!

  3. These are all above our usual price point. I love the Lego and Minecraft ones – or at least my kids would – and I’d love a beauty one for me. But in actuality we have a re-usable one which comes out each year.

  4. They are all amazing, pure marketing genius. The Lego is great for the kids, personally anything girlie I love, YSL, Lancome or Kiehls. Gorgeous.

  5. I love advent calendars. I buy the LEGO one every year. Last year they had a Lego city and a Sat Wars themed one. I also have two book filled ones and also a reusable one plus two Christmas decoration ones. Now I can see a couple more I need to buy.
