I know this year has been different and not what we expected. It has been long and full of challenges so now that we are almost getting to the end we are all counting the days to Christmas and what better way to do this than with a cool Advent Calendar. I was searching for different and trending Advent Calendars to open this year and I came across a few that I thought are worth mentioning.
This is a list of Advent Calendars for different members of the family, so, for instance, you will see options for the men in the house, the lovely ladies and of course for the kids. This way you can choose what best suits your family.
1. Tinc Advent Calendar
Tinc is a British creator of colourful and creative stationery, gadgets, and accessories for children of all ages. Founded in 2011 by husband and wife team, Jos and Heli Baker, Tinc strives to inspire children’s imaginations and help them discover the joy of making, learning and doing. The name ‘Tinc’ is an abbreviation of all that the brand represents: Think. Inspire. Create.
Tinc’s Advent Calendar is perfect for the lead up to Christmas, celebrating the holidays from the 1st December right up to the big day. Priced at £25, the gifts inside include pens, pencils, notebooks, click torches, whistles, squishies, and so much more.
The box looks lovely, very colourful and cute. We can’t wait to start opening this Advent Calendar. We love stationary!
2. Smiggle Advent Calendar
Smiggle is the go-to brand for children’s gifts this year! From backpacks to cool gadgets, Smiggle has a fantastic array of colourful, fun and on-trend products at a variety of price points.

The value of the contents is £50 but the calendar retails at just £28. My girls are desperate to start opening this Advent Calendar. They love Smiggle!
3. Friends Advent Calendar
Mad Beauty’s new licence with Warner Brothers launches with their Friends ranges, 25 years after the programme first aired. How cool is that?

What a cute Advent Calendar from Mad Beauty. You can collect bath and body products. With all these goodies you can transform yourself into a Princess. How cool is that?
The Disney Pop Advent Calendar will be perfect for Bella. It retails at £17.99.
5. Cadbury Dairy Milk Advent Calendar
Of course we cannot forget our traditional chocolate Advent Calendar and why not get a Cadbury one. We love Cadbury especially their dairy milk chocolate so this is always a good choice for us.

6. Lynx Africa Countdown Advent Calendar
Lynx, the iconic deodorant brand has also launched its Christmas Countdown Calendar for the 12 days running up to Christmas.

7. Glossybox Advent Calendar
This is my favourite Advent Calendar. I love Glossybox. I have had a subscription with them almost since they started back in 2014. I am always so excited to receive my monthly box by post.
When they decided to also do an Advent Calendar 3 years ago, I just had to get one. Last year I missed the deadline and couldn’t get one, but this year I was determined to get my Glossybox Advent Calendar so I pre-booked on time.
It comes with 25 luxurious beauty treats worth over £390 to enjoy all the way up to Xmas. If you are a beauty lover this is for you. It is not cheap. If you are a subscriber you can get it for £80 but if you are non-subscriber it will cost £99.
I know this is not for everyone but this year I felt I needed something to cheer me up. I can’t wait to start opening it next week.
8. The Advent of Change Calendar
Now if you would prefer to get a calendar which donates to a different charity every day, the Advent of Change Calendar is for you. This way, instead of receiving something each day, you will be giving something each day: 24 donations to 24 incredible charities.
Each day, you will discover exactly what you’ve given, from helping to provide safe housing for a homeless person to providing a dream day out for a sick child, or helping to support the UK’s frontline workers. How lovely is that?
Advent of Change calendars are all completely plastic-free, using compostable and recyclable packaging, and made in the UK. It costs £17.95 and you can get it from their website Advent of Change.
Their latest addition to the non-profit collection is an innovative Advent Candle which donates over 75 per cent of proceeds to 24 charities throughout the festive countdown. The natural wax burns down to reveal the number each day and comes with an accompanying booklet to discover exactly what your donation has meant for the charity. It costs £24.95.
9. Beanies Coffee Advent Calendar 2020
If you are a coffee lover like me and Nick, then this is definitely a great option for you. With 24 windows to open, you’ll find different stick sachet combinations behind AND 2 mystery flavour jars! How cool is that?

10. The Protein Ball Co. Guilt-Free Advent Calendar
Now, if you are the one that would prefer to stay out of all those chocolate treats and instead would prefer to remain healthy, then The Protein Ball Co. guilt-free advent calendar would be a fun and delicious way to welcome advent without the guilt.
This Advent Calendar is perfect for fitness enthusiasts and clean eating fans who are looking for a healthy alternative to the traditional, sugar-laden calendar.

I love all the advent calendars around now. I remember back to the ones we had when I was growing up. The best ones we had were the ones my mum made herself. Each day we had different little gifts, it could be a sweet or a little car. But everyday it was a lovely surprise!
That is a lovely idea too! I think I will do that next year 🙂

I think I’d like the protein ball one actually! Though coffee is always nice too… We’ve got a Shaun the Sheep themed calendar for our boy this year, it comes with little toys and puzzles etc, and a board game to play once all the doors have been opened 🙂 x #KCACOLS
