Guys, I love advent calendars! It’s no surprise because I’m basically a 7 year old in a 25-year-old’s body (let’s just pretend 25 is my actual age, mmmmkay). But seriously, its the most magical time of the year, when Advent calendars of all shapes and sizes compete for our attention.

Until I wrote up this post, I had no idea there were so many beauty advent calendars out there! Many brands use this as an opportunity to share thier best rated products. Some are NOT cheap, but I guess it makes sense considering how much product you’re getting.

I only pulled a few food and snack advent calenders because I wanted to focus on the other stuff, maybe off the beaten path. However, if food is your thang (or Tea), there are so many great advents to choose from. Even one for your favorite fluff balls!
