Today we’re sharing some very special (and some fun!) 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!
Advent and countdown calendars are a way to build anticipation for Christmas Day, and there are so many great 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 some more sweet calendars your family and friends will love.

Gourmet Countdown Calendars
Gourmet gifts are great for family friends, neighbors, and business associates. These Advent calendars are the best around and can be enjoyed by everyone! Give before December 1st so they can enjoy all season long (and you can have checked off your list!). P.S. World Market has some really fun ones that would be great office or neighbor gifts!
Beauty Countdown Calendars
Over the last few years, I have seen some of my favorite beauty brands introduce their own Advent calendars. These would make great gifts for friends, moms, and sisters.
