Christmas is around the corner and I’m on the lookout for some swoon-worthy adult advent calendars. Gone are the days when I had to take it in turns with my brother to eat a chocolate snowman!

These days, advent calendars have upped their game, and I’m on the hunt for the 10 best seriously luxurious adult advent calendars. I’ve picked from of the most gorgeous, beautiful and treat-tastic advent calendars designed for adults.

On a budget!

I’m a frugal girl at heart. If you’re on a tight budget, then there are still some amazing adult advent calendars to choose from.

  • Joules Merry and Bright Village Advent Calendar (£35)If you’re feeling crafty then this advent calendar could be the one for you. It’s a gorgeous kit of 25 mini houses. You can make them with your kids or by yourself and then fill them with little treats of your choice.
  • Draper Christmas Advent Calendar (£34.99) – if you love DIY and you’re looking for a practical advent calendar then this one could be just the ticket! It includes 54 tools packed in behind 24 doors. It includes a measuring tape, adjustable wrench, a selection of pliers and hexagon keys.
  • Marks and Spencer Beauty Advent Calendar (£40 when you spend £30 on clothing) – If you’re beauty-obsessed then you’re going to love this one. It’s packed with 10 full-size beauty products in 14 mini treats. My personal favourite is the PRAI 24k gold wrinkle repair creme. It normally costs £35 for that one product alone, and anything that can help with wrinkles has got to be worth its weight in gold.
