I remember the patience I had to exercise as a kid when we would get our very own advent calendars. One chocolate a day is tough when you are building up to Christmas. The best part was opening the little door and getting a treat. Well, things have a come a long way since chocolate advent calendars. Here are the best chocolate, beauty, grown-up, toy and even furkid advent calendars you can get in South Africa!
The best chocolate advent calendars
What would the festive season be without chocolate? Here are some delicious chocolate advent calendars to keep you going until Christmas.
Nothing beats Lindt (except maybe Reeses but that’s imported and pricey). Start your countdown to Christmas with a delicious Lindt bear. A friend at work got one and let me test one out (they weren’t waiting) and my bear was dressed in his Sunday best and tasted amazing. Nom, nom, nom.
Every year my mom buys us a pack of those gold-wrapped chocolate balls from Woolies. It’s become kind of a tradition, but now you can have one every day until you get a whole pack all to yourself. Win-win.
The best toy advent calendars
There is a Lego Harry Potter advent calendar. I repeat, there is a Lego Harry Potter advent calendar.
I love stuff from The Body Shop, especially their body wash and Jasmine perfume (I really like Jasmine). These products are travel size so they are perfect for your holiday adventure.
The best advent calendar for your furkid
It was only a matter of time and that time is now. Celebrate Christmas early this year by getting your furkid involved. Each day has a new delicious treat your pet will love. Plus by buying this you are supporting animal organisations.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
