One of my favorite things about the festive season is shopping for advent calendars. Not just for myself – but advent calendars seem to be the perfect gift for any one who likes a surprise every day. And who doesn’t really?! Open a box every day to receive a small gift – it’s the perfect way to ring in the festive season! Advent calendars are also the perfect way of introducing yourself or your giftee to a brand and their hero items.
This year, brands are really upping the game with the most elaborate and stunning advent calendar boxes. Here’s our picks for this year!
THE BODY SHOP
24 DAYS OF BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR
The Body Shop has been playing the advent calendar game very well since day one. The advent calendar is the perfect gift for the holidays for just about anyone. This year they’re releasing not one, not two, but three (!) different advent calendars. Shop the 24 Days Of Beauty calendar if you want to surprise yourself or your giftee with the best of The Body Shop classics. There’s mini essentials ranging skincare (hand cream, cleanser) to shower gels (grapefruit, strawberry) and lip butters (shea and mango). The advent calendar is great for women who aren’t necessarily the makeup-using type but who you know would love having a mini spa at home with loads of fresh and fragrant products!
24 DAYS OF CLINIQUE ADVENT CALENDAR
On a more expensive price level, there’s the 24 days of Clinique advent calendar. This luxurious box filled with Clinique classics such as the Clinique pep-start moisturizer, clarifying lotion or chubby stick is a great way to share your favorite Clinique items with your friends and loved ones. This box is great for both skincare and beauty lovers – the calendar is stocked with a mix of both. My favorite also features one of my favorite eye creams, all about eyes. I keep this in the fridge and apply every morning to reduce puffiness under my eyes!
By far one of the most popular beauty advent calendars currently is the Kiehl’s Advent calendar. When I showed this box on Instagram, 78% of you requested to open the box prior to December. The box features a mix of iconic Kiehl’s products, such as the Ultimate strength hand salve, Midnight recovery concentrate and Lip balm #1. What I love about the Kiehl’s advent calendar is the decent-sized miniatures you’re getting! The advent calendar is a limited edition and due to its popularity, it’s sold out in a lot of stores already. So if you manage to get your hands on one – buy it!
