‘On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…’ a collection of Advent calendars for a month full of surprise beauty gifts, wrapped up in beautiful packaging to indulge in your favorite brands or sample all new cult favorites from others? Sounds like a winter wonderland to me!
The advent calendar can be traced back to 1851, where religious families would put a chalk line on the door frame starting around December 1 until Christmas eve. They then evolved into newspaper pages with Christmas scenes and little candies taped to them for the days until Christmas.
The traditional Advent calendars feature the manger scene, while non traditional calendars range in themes from sports, to our favorite beauty advent calendars. Today these calendars are a perfect gift for children and adults alike, with so many themes to choose from, there is something for everyone.
This year has been an exceptionally crazy year, why not have a fun gift that has days and days of delight? Whether you opt for 12, 24, or 31 days of beauty gifts there are many options for your budget. Major brands like Sephora, Amazon, and Macy’s all have advent calendars this year, with gifts ranging from deluxe samples to full size products. Not only can you get an assortment of goodies, there are calendars with just fragrances or candles and even make up brushes! Don’t think they forgot about the guys either, LookFantastic has a barber pro box with 12 days of men’s grooming products. While Next and L’oreal have 24 day calendars for men.
Make this Christmas one full of days of self care and fun? Check out the advent calendar from Lush that is full of bubble bath and bath bombs, sure to transform your bath water into a magical soak. Or maybe you really love skin care, Origins and Keihl’s both have wonderful options to pique your interest.
