I have always loved advent calendars – a present everyday? What’s not to love?! There is something so magical about it – waking up on a frosty morning and having a little treat to start the day – it’s mazin. And whether you’re celebrating Chanukah, Christmas, or just the holiday season in general, the concept of this and the joy it elicits is universal.
So, here are some of my favourite ideas for home-made advent calendars, and if you’d like to have a crack at any of them yourself, keep your eyes peeled for the picture links so you can pick up the bits and bobs you need.
What you pop inside your advent calendar… well, that is entirely up to you…

Or, if you really have no time to make the calendar but like the idea of creating your own… I love this one from John Lewis…
I’m still deciding which one to make!
Which one will you go for?
