Beautiful Countdown and Advent Calendars to Gift this Year


Today we’re sharing some very special Christmas countdown and Advent calendars. This is a popular post every year, so we wanted to get this one out early! There are so many great gift ideas in this roundup including gourmet, beauty, tea, and LEGO Advent calendars, too. We’ve already begun sharing our favorite Advent calendars over on the LTK app, so be sure to browse our collection and give us a follow there if you haven’t already! 

Advent and countdown calendars are a way to build anticipation for Christmas Day, and there are so many wonderful options. If you have close family friends, nieces and nephews, or grandchildren you won’t be able to celebrate with this year, an Advent calendar would be a fun gift to send to them early in the season. What a special way to connect throughout December! 

My girls love our Felt Nativity Advent Calendar (similar one here) and take turns every day adding each piece to the Nativity scene (full disclosure: there is a little arguing every year over go gets to put on Baby Jesus!). Here are several more sweet calendars your family and friends will love.

  1. I just ordered the Anthropologie one for my daughter – thank you for the cute options for teens!

    I also found a Funko Marvel one for my 10 year old son. We’ve done the Lego ones so many times, I was looking for something new. And for the hubs, Man Crates is doing a Jerky one. 24 days of various flavors of Jerky. It received great reviews last year – so looking forward to seeing if it’s any good! 🙂
