3 seriously cool advent calendars to treat yourself to before December kicks off

The countdown is on.

We are three sleeps away from December, and while we are certain you are on top of it when it comes to your kids' advent calendars, how about yourself, mama?

We think us mums deserve something fun and magical to wake up on December mornings too – this year more so than ever. Consider it your teacher's gift to yourself after all that homeschooling earlier this year!

And if you are looking to go a little more special than chocolate, we are seriously loving the idea of these three calendars:

1. Sockshop 2020 Christmas Advent Calendar

What an amazingly practical – yet also gorgeous calendar! We are obsessed with Sockshop's new advent calendar – containing 25 pairs of really cute socks – literally kitting you out for the year ahead while also having something to look forward to opening every morning this December.

Even better? 15 percent of each sale of the ​25 DAYS OF SOCKS​ calendars will be donated to Emmaus UK, a leading UK homelessness charity.

The calendars are available in ladies1 and men’s sizes and include a pair of fun and festive socks for every day of December in the run-up to Christmas Day!



2. Bonne Maman 2020 Limited Edition Advent Calendar

How SWEET (pun intended) is this?!

This ridiculously adorable jam advent calendar looks to be straight out of a picture book – and I am obsessed!

Behind each beautifully illustrated door, you’ll find a 30g Bonne Maman spread to start your day. The collection includes exclusive and limited edition conserves that you won’t find in your local Tesco or Dunnes. The sweet and sticky selection includes cherry and elderflower, lemon and yuzu, fig and cardamom, grapefruit and dragonfruit – and can we all agree December breakfasts are looking up?!


3. Personalised Christmas Woodland Advent Calendar

For an advent calendar that'll keep on giving, we love this beautiful wooden one from Bloom Boutique.

Each morning, you'll open the calendar to find another little woodland creature, meaning you'll eventually end up with a gorgeous little woodland scene that you get to enjoy not only this year, but every Christmas to come too.

The advent calendar features a suitcase, with a leather handle, covered with a festive design. And inside are numbered trays which reveal small etched wooden animal pieces, designed to make something really special to look at and enjoy.
