Advent Calendar Guide 2019

Christmas is not far away, and the countdown will soon be on.  As we count down the days until Father Christmas comes to visit. This must mean we can start to look at Advent Calendars, and choose which one we want this year.  With so many to choose these days my advent calendar guide 2019 might make it a little easier to choose. Steering away from the traditional chocolate calendars.

    The slime calendar looks so interesting. I’m not Catholic, though. I actually can’t remember how to celebrate/commemorate the season that way.

    Ohh! I think I would be quite happy with any of these.
    A coffee advent calendar is such a good idea. Open it on the morning and have a cuppa to start your day.
    I’ve never heard of the Waterdrop one before, another fantastic idea.

      My kids loved these when they were little. The calenders often came with tiny trinkets or chocolate inside.

    Wow! My kids would definitely be thrilled with these Marvel and Frozen advent calendars. Such a treat for Marvel and Disney fans.

    We usually just use the traditional ones but I guess it’s time to level up a bit. The little rocket and captain marvel figures are so cute.
