Whilst we personally think that the holiday season doesn’t really start until mid-November, it wouldn’t be good business for brands to try and get their Christmas merch in our hands before then.
I know some stores have had Christmas decorations up since July (Selfridges naughty!) and if you’re in the fashion or press industry then you will know that “Christms in July” is a real thing but for the reasonable among us, mid-November is the time when you have to start getting yourself into gear for the holidays.
So this is my list of all the beauty advent calendars that I have come across and that are available to buy now, I will add others as they are made available.
You have been warned they sell out very quickly so you will have to move it if you want to get your hands on one. They’re such great value that you really can get great products quite justifiably. Plus, when the children are all eating chocolate before breakfast with theirs, you have a gorgeous new product to add to your bathroom-shelfie, a gorgeous-smelling candle to light or new nail varnish, this list goes on.
This year there are more “12 day countdown” advent calendars which look amazing. These are cheaper than the usual 25 day beauty advent calendars and still allow you to get involved in the festivities, so take a look at those too.
Whilst some of the luxury advent calendars included are in excess of £300 (Diptique, Harrods and Fortnums), these still offer amazing value for money. There are less expensive options and some of the 12 day calendars are even better value, so take a look and see what works for you and your budget.
Some tips for choosing your advent calendar:
Go for brands you love, it’s a good way to try out products from brands you’re already familiar with.
Are any full-sized products included? These make for the best value for money and can be gifted if you don’t use them!
