Blogmas #2: 10 alternative advent calendars

One of the best things about December is definitely being able to open an advent calendar every morning. It definitely makes mornings more bearable and in a way, gives you something to look forward to when you wake up!

When I was younger I loved chocolate advent calendars and they were really the only type of advent calendars that were available. In today's world there are so many different options for non-chocolate advent calendars.

I thought I'd share with you some of my favourites for 2018! If you're looking for a non-chocolate advent calendar and have left things last minute (like me) or simply want one to go with your chocolate advent calendar, keep reading...

Every girl loves to pamper themselves, throughout the winter months especially, so what better than a beauty filled advent calendar?!

24 Day Bath & Body Advent Calendar, £29.99

I love this calendar. The decoration is fun and light-hearted. I love that you get 24 different bath and body bits to open including body lotions, hand creams, bath bombs and more.

Decleor 2018 Advent Calendar

Decleor, £80

I absolutely adore Decleor products. I've had a couple of facials and spa treatments using their products and my skin has felt divine after.

Being a luxury brand, their products can be quite pricey and of course, in the grand scheme of things, so is £80 for an advent calendar. However, this calendar is filled with 24 mini products for you to use. You are likely to be saving yourself quite a bit of money by buying the products through the calendar so if you're a Decleor fan, I'd definitely recommend it!

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar

LookFantastic, £79

The products in this calendar when all bought separately are worth over £300 and this advent calendar is just £79. That is a bargain.

Including brands such as Illa Masqua and Molton Brown, this luxury advent calendar is definitely sure to make your December!

Maybe this won't be so much of a morning advent calendar but after a long day at work, this will definitely be something to look forward to!

Tiny Tipsy Tree Advent Calendar, £24.99

I love this concept and, with it being Gin, I know my Mum definitely would too. Mix with a tonic of your choice and you've got a lovely Gin & Tonic each night throughout December.

Baileys Advent Calendar

Debenhams, £18

Baileys for me is definitely a winter drink so what better than a Baileys advent calendar? Indulge in mini Baileys drinks and liqueurs throughout the weeks leading up to Christmas!

Festive Cocktails Advent Calendar

M&S, £25

Enjoy a festive chocolate liqueur each day and on Christmas Day itself, enjoy a perfect festive cocktail! I think this is the perfect mix of chocolate and alcohol and spices up what would be a regular chocolate advent calendar.

Wanting something more than just a chocolate advent calendar but also wanting something to snack on? Keep reading!

Cheese Advent Calendar, ASDA, Sainsbury's, £8

For all you cheese lovers out there, there's now a cheese advent calendar! You get a piece of cheese every day for the 24 days leading up to Christmas - yum.

Artisan Brownie Advent Calendar, £74.50

If you're after something more substantial than chocolate, but sweet nevertheless, get this brownie advent calendar! There is also a gluten free option available too which I think is really good.

Dazzling Mince Pies Advent Calendar

Selfridges, £35.99

If you're a mince pie lover like me then this advent calendar is perfect for you! I mean you could always just go and buy packs of mince pies but this adds a bit of fun to the process!

Last but not least...

Wreath Advent Calendar

Yankee Candle, £24.99

Candles make me feel so cosy and Christmassy so I absolutely love the concept of a candle advent calendar. The design is beautiful and I think it is such good value for money.

Light one candle per day and get cosy for winter!


I'll be honest I am definitely a chocolate advent calendar kinda gal but I really love the idea of these as an additional thing to open.

I hope you've enjoyed reading and if you purchase any of the above, I hope you love them!
