Because chocolate is so 2016
6 non-edible advent calendars that will brighten up your whole December
November 6, 2017   |   

December is typically a time for overeating, over-drinking and generally making yourself feel ghastly come January. If that’s what you want to do, we’ll support you — though there is something to be said for easing up a little. How about drinking water in between your mulled wines and only eating one wheel of brie per party? And, instead of the usual daily chocolates, why not splash a little more cash and get an advent calendar with gifts you actually want behind the windows?

In fact, the chocolate is kind of powdery and, after the age of about six, do you actually want a coin of that every morning? Maybe, but how much more pleasing would it be to find a Kikki. K pen or a Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream? In fact, though they can seem quite pricey, you actually end up paying far less than if you’d bought the gifts separately.
