8 Unique Advent Calendars to start your Christmas Countdown
We’ve spent a lot of this year counting things; end of lockdowns and quarantine, number of people in our bubble, number of lbs gained and so on. Now let’s countdown to something fun instead…Christmas! We might not know what Christmas is going to look like this year, but we do know that it’s only six weeks away. In hindsight, 2020 should have had an advent calendar style calendar for every month, just to get us through the year!
Now, we don’t have anything against generic advent calendars with a tiny morsel of chocolate waiting behind every door but this year we want something different, something a bit unique and exciting. As usual, HealthPharm has put in the hard work so you don’t have to, here are our 8 favourite unique Advent Calendars for 2020.
**OUR TOP CHOICE** Pukka Herbs Tea Advent Calendar
Who knew there were 24 different flavours of herbal tea in the World, let alone in one calendar? Well, there are, and they are all here for you to enjoy each day. There are all your trusty favourites such as Chamomile, Blackcurrant Beauty and English Breakfast, along with plenty of new and fancy flavours. When was the last time you relaxed with a Ginseng Matcha Green tea or a spicy Licorice and Cinnamon brew? There’s something for everyone and plenty of surprises for your taste buds.
All Pukka tea is 100% organically grown, has ethically sourced ingredients and awesome flavour combos. This advent calendar is the perfect opportunity to try something new and if you fall in love with one then Healthpharm stocks plenty of Pukka products so you can enjoy your perfect cuppa every day.
Cute shaped chocolates – check. Vegan – check. UTZ and Rainforest Alliance certified – check! This one ticks all the boxes for vegans and non-vegans alike. We love the surprise of different shaped chocolates each day and the knowledge that no rainforests were harmed in the making of this chocolate.
White chocolate lovers often find their options limited when it comes to advent calendars but not with this one. It’s pure, chocolatey bliss!
The treats you find behind each door on the Tilly Luxury Bath Time Calendar look good enough to eat…but please don’t! Yes, they look adorable and smell delicious, but they are strictly for bath time.
Whether you get a bath fizzers, fruity soap or bath salts when you open your treat you can guarantee that they are going to make bath time extra special. Winter nights are closing in, so this is your ideal excuse for some ‘me time’ in super bubbly bath each night.
The best part of Christmas preparation is putting up the tree and now you can enjoy making your own sweetie filled Christmas tree with the Candy Kittens advent calendar. Yes, we think it looks a tiny bit like a Darlek too - so it’s also ideal for Doctor Who fans!
All Candy Kittens sweets are vegan friendly and made from fruit juice with 100% natural flavours. You won’t find any nasties such as palm oil or wax and you are spoilt for choice with the delicious flavours; wild strawberry, sour watermelon, tropical mango and blueberry bliss.
Why not make the countdown to Christmas a little sweeter for someone you care about?
‘Tis the season to be glamorous and glamorous you shall be with the SUNkissed 25 days to Beauty calendar. Filled with daily beauty treats in colours that flatter everyone, this is perfect for anyone who loves a bit of glitz in their life. We promise there won’t be a single day that you’re disappointed when you open that door, whether it’s mascara, eyeshadow, nail polish or another beauty gift, we know you’ll be impressed.
The best thing about this calendar is that by the time you get to Christmas day you’ll have an entire set of mini make up essentials, perfect for a travel make-up kit or to glam up your daily make-up staples.
Once you pop you just can’t stop! Okay, I stole that line from another product (shhhhhh!) but it applies to this too. Who doesn’t love popcorn? Especially when it comes in six awesome flavours. If you haven’t tried white truffle or smoky maple flavoured popcorn yet then seriously, you haven’t lived.
A mini bag of tasty handmade popcorn is a great way to start your day. HealthPharm is so impressed by these vegan-friendly, gluten, soya, dairy & nut-free snacks that we also stock them in larger bags and snack boxes for the popcorn lovers in your life.
Cats across the country deserve an extra treat this Christmas. They’ve had to put up with their humans moping around the house a whole lot more during the lockdown and frankly that cramps their kitty style.
Show your moggy how much you appreciate them with a daily festive treat. You’ll have to open the little windows for them though because those little paws can’t do it themselves!
We did say unique advent calendars so a milk chocolate one might come as a surprise, but we figured we can’t mess with Christmas traditions too much and this chocolate is AMAZING!
It’s part of the Christmas warm-up, eating chocolate before breakfast, so if you’re going to be naughty then do it with this super-rich and smooth milk chocolate. The gorgeous calendar animations will make you smile every morning as you open different windows from around the world.
This year advent calendars are super important; they give us something to look forward to at a time where things can feel a little bleak. Treat friends, family and people you are missing to a special calendar. A gift that gives them a little treat every day. Don’t forget to get one for yourself too, you deserve it! Order now to make sure everything arrives in plenty of time.
