I’ll be the first to tell you that I really detest Christmas countdowns. The last thing I need is a reminder that Christmas is 79 days away or 6 Saturdays away. I’m stressed enough as it is and the holiday season just multiplies it. An advent calendar is different. Because an advent calendar is counting down the days till Christmas in either a 12 or 25 day format it doesn’t bother me. Plus each day there’s a new treat! That helps to ease the anxiety am I right?! Today I thought I’d share a few of the best advent calendars that have caught my eye. The time to get the best advent calendars is now because they sell out quickly.
From chocolate treats to foodie finds to beauty products, these are the best ways to count down to Christmas!
