Special Advent Calendars to Gift This Year


Today I’m sharing some of my very favorite Advent devotionals and calendars — one of my most treasured Christmas traditions. With many of the normal Christmas activities put on hold this year, perhaps your family has a little more space in your schedule to start a new tradition. One that refocuses your family’s eyes and hearts on the reason we celebrate. We are also sharing some “fun” calendars that are great for gifting!

Advent calendars are so much fun to do with small children as a way to build anticipation for Christmas day, and there are so many great options (including this one my girls love, that ships free with Amazon Prime!). 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. What a special way to connect throughout December! 

My girls love our Felt Nativity Advent Calendar 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.) I have shared my family’s advent calendar on here multiple times and it always sells out, so make sure to act fast! It is available with Prime Shipping, too! Here are a few classic Advent calendars to enjoy with your whole family:

Kubla Crafts Nativity Advent Calendar
My Family's Advent Calendar
Cozy Felt Advent Calendars
Love The Sweet Look of This Calendar
Countdown to Christmas Candle
A sweet under $20 gift for neighbors and friends.
All About Advent Coloring Book
So fun for children!

I also found some wonderful devotionals for adults (and even a few to do with your children, like the always popular Jesse Tree). I hope these encourage you to find some quiet time during your day to make yourself a cup of coffee or tea, and find rest in these beautiful words! This is also a sweet thing to do virtually with friends or a small group.

  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! 🙂
