We all know the best tradition of Christmas is that we get to eat chocolate for breakfast for 24 days straight from our advent calendars. However, some may prefer a boujee room spray or a piece of fine cheese behind the small doors this Christmas!
I have gathered eight of the best-priced calendars, ranging from beauty calendars to bath bombs and even to cheese…yes cheese.
The White Company £175
Starting the list with a perfect calendar to begin the Christmas countdown.
The White Company has created a festive box full of their bestselling seasonal scents and favourite wellness treats.
With contents worth £269, each door hides everything from bath & body miniatures to votives in bestselling scents- also includes 2 full-size Signature Candles.
Jo Malone London £350
Following on with the Christmas scents, Jo Malone has created an advent calander filled with 25 days of scented treats.
This year’s offering is undeniably classic, staying true to that instantly recognisable cream and black packaging and opening to reveal two tiers of scented surprises.
The calendar includes festive home fragrances, miniature popular colognes and also a couple of full-size surprises too!
Swap chocolate for cheese and make it the tastiest countdown to Christmas with the World’s Greatest Cheese Advent Calendar.
The advent calendar will arrive in 3 deliveries so the cheese is in tip-top condition, each delivery also contains a pack of Peter’s Yard crackers, honey and a condiment.
The cheese is delivered in climate-controlled packaging and they have a 48-hour freshness guarantee. If your box is more than a day late, they will send you a fresh one for free!
Hotel Chocolat £75
Want to keep it semi-traditional? Hotel Chocolat have multiple calendars this year, the most luxurious being The Grand Advent Calendar.
Brimming with decadent chocolate slabs, batons and truffles, you’ll discover a new indulgent treat each day in the run-up to Christmas.
Not only does this advent calendar contain twin packs of truffles, festive chocolate slabs and Selector packs. You’ll also find an array of tipples, beauty lip balm, and maybe even a sachet of insatiably creamy hot chocolate.
As part of their ongoing pledge to reduce plastic waste, Hotel Chocolat updated the elegant packaging to remove the plastic handle. Even more, reason to treat yourself or a loved one!
Full of delightful beauty pieces, Cultbeauty have created a bargain-filled calendar that has a total worth of around £1000! This 37-piece edit (including 13 full-size products!) is overflowing with Cult Beauty icons, from under-the-radar ‘Skindie’ heroes to make-up’s biggest names and everything in between.
In addition to the amazing beauty finds, Cultbeauty have hidden three Golden Tickets hidden within our calendars. Worth ONE THOUSAND Cult Beauty pounds each, the three lucky winners are in for the spree of a lifetime.
The Body Shop £55- £145
This year The Body Shop has not one, not two but three advent calendars up for sale! Inspired by their Community Fair Trade partners, each advent calendar celebrates the women that help produce the body-loving ingredients found in their products. Open the door to your daily dose of goodness with Box of Wishes, Box of Wonders, or Box of Wishes & Wonders.
The most luxurious is the Box of Wishes and Wonders, costing £145, this box is full of goodies that are actually worth £219!
Gifts include mini, skin-tingling Himalayan Charcoal and refreshing British Rose face masks. Or maybe you’ll find the new, full-sized Moringa Shampoo and Conditioner to give dull hair some shine. There might even be a bestselling Sleep Pillow Mist to help you feel prepared for a good night’s sleep.
Even better the new calendars are made of recyclable cardboard and you can even reuse the pop-ups as gift tags, and the drawers are great for storing crafts and other little bits and bobs, long after Christmas.
The ultimate smelly countdown begins right here with LUSH. This year’s calendar has twenty-five specially selected products, designed to bring you joy in the run-up to the big day. Including 4 items exclusive to the gift, they’re all packaged in a limited edition box designed by ARTHOUSE Unlimited, perfect for storing your Lush treats all year round.
Including their most popular Snow Fairy as well as new Christmas surprises! Imagine waking up to a new scent every morning, to use in your winter evening baths (what a dream!).
Now last but certainly not least! Dior has perhaps stolen the prize for most luxurious this year, starting at the price of £470! Although it is extremely above most people’s budget, this calendar is definitely worth treating yourself to this Christmas.
For this new edition of the Dior Advent calendar, the artist Pietro Ruffo has “imagined a magical and luxurious astral world where a profusion of flowers, wonderous constellations, stardust and fantastic beasts mix.”
The 24 gifts include makeup and skincare, alongside body products, fragrance, candles and a Dior Christmas decoration.
