I can’t believe I actually have the advent calendar up and ready to go this year. It’s a Christmas miracle! No more drugstore chocolate advent calendars for us 😉 Not knocking those too hard, because…yum. So I’ve actually had this advent calendar for years now and this is the first time I’ve used it. Whoops. By the way if you like it, here’s a similar looking one for cheaper (hurry before it sells out!).
I did a ton of research on the different advent calendar ideas…there are SO many. Should I do one with all toys? All candy? (nope) All movies? Activities? Community service? I couldn’t make up my mind. So I compiled a list of all of the ideas and decided to do a mix of all. I threw in a couple of candies and toys in there for good measure. Let me know if I’ve missed your holiday favorites! I’ll be sure to add them to the list (and maybe my advent calendar as well!).
If you’re having trouble getting your advent calendar butt in gear, hopefully this post helps! Also, don’t forget to check out my kids, womens, mens, techie themed gift guides if you need guidance in that neck of the woods as well!
