It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas (the excitement is real!!) and time to pick what advent calendar you want this year.
Gone are the days of just picking from a simple chocolate calendar, now there is every variety to pick from… what is a girl to do!?
Luckily for you, I have rounded up my top advents to suit everyone’s tastes, style and budgets! Let me know what one you end up picking…. You can find out my favourite below,
it is delicious!!
BEST FOR COUPLES
If you live with your partner, what better way to start Christmas than to share a luxe chocolate advent?! I adore this one from Hotel Chocolat. Open each door to find two delicious truffles for you and your partner each day! Surprises include salted caramel, gingerbread praline and butterscotch just to name a few!

BEST FOR WORKOUT LOVERS
As you know I love a workout and what better way to follow up a morning session than with a hit of protein…from chocolate!! Say what!? Yes, you heard right. The team over at My Protein have created this genius chocolate protein calendar – perfect for all workout bunnies out there!
Protein Advent, £4.99, MyProtein.com
BEST FOR TEAM DAIRY FREE
I often struggle with eating dairy as it affects my bloating and my skin so I do my best to avoid it. This is why I LOVE that Holland and Barrett have brought out a dairy free chocolate this year. All the taste of delish choc without the effects of dairy!!
Dairy Free Advent, £3.99, Holland and Barrett
BEST FOR BEAUTY FANATICS
As well as chocolate there is so many beauty advent calendars out there now! I absolutely love this amazing luxe advent from The Vintage Cosmetics Company. The dollhouse style is so cute and you get a fun new product every day from makeup brushes to hairbrushes.

Of course I couldn’t leave out the classic chocolate advent! My personal favourite is the Cadbury advent – can’t beat chocolate Christmas shapes for breakfast and it just wouldn’t be Christmas without a bit of Cadbury!
