As my kids were growing up, one of our favorite traditions was putting up the advent calendar that I had made out of felt and counting the days until Christmas. We also would get the chocolate calendars for each kid to have one of their own.
For a few years now, we've been putting up festive and fun advent calendars and it is probably one of my favorite things to do at this time of year, scouring the internet for advent calendars that strike my fancy!
* I'm starting out with this adorable wooden Melissa & Doug Countdown Christmas Tree! Their products are always great quality. The colors are vibrant and the price is terrific! It is only $19.78 right now and with free Prime Shipping!
*Lego has a few different Christmas Countdown sets. We had one that we used for a few years until it was finally absorbed into the rest of the Legos. Legos are always a big hit!
*I was just playing Play-Doh with a couple of my grandchildren the other day. Some of their well used Play-Doh was drying out. When I sawthis set I was sure that we could have a ton of fun with it as well as replenish some of their Play-Doh! It is a great price at only $19.90.
*I can think of a few people who would love having this Harry Potter Pop Up Advent Calendar! Lindsey and I were just saying to one another recently that for some reason we like watching Harry Potter at Christmas Time! It must be Mrs. Weasley's handmade sweaters.
* This Christmas Snowman is simple to use, super cute and very affordable at $8.98!
*I love this Nativity Advent Calendar, it reminds me of the Christmas Tree one I made so many years ago, but I wish mine had been of the Nativity! The figures are adorable, and the price is only $12.78!
*This Christmas Gnome Advent is so adorable. I haven't quite moved on from the gnome trend yet. There aren't any tiny pieces to lose, you just move the little heart from pocket to pocket. But, I think you could put a treat in each pocket as well!
*There are always some great surprises on Etsy, and this year is no exception! I love this Wooden Advent where the star moves along and the treats hang below. I've even seen some that end at the stable of the Baby Jesus.
*In our own 3 Winks Design Shop, we have a printable Advent Calendar that you can purchase. It was for a Quarantine Christmas, and many of us still have had to end up quarantining anyway this year, so the activities on it are still relevant this year!
*Here is a great find that you should only get if you have a lot of will power! I would probably have this count down speed up to last about 3 days. It is the See's Candy Advent Calendar! Pricey but yummy!
*JCPenney has some fabulous Advent Choices on their website. I love this beautiful wooden drawer Advent! You fill the drawers with treats or small ornaments. It would look so beautiful on a shelf or mantle. The price is much lower than you might think!
