2022 may have had it’s issues, but its advent calendar game is still on point. From hair accessories to craft gin, I dare you to say you’re not into advent this year. Here’s the bouji-est ones out there.
No7 – Sure, beauty advent calendars are nothing new, but affordable ones are. This one packs product value more than four times its price into 25 doors. 8 of them are full sized. Just saying.
Jurlique – A pleasingly diverse array of hand, face and body items all powered by natural botanicals. Perfect whether you already love the brand or want to get to know them, day. By. Day.
Candy Kittens – Sweet tooth but not a chocolate fan? Say no more. Taste test your way through Candy Kittens’ gourmet vegan gummies, and rejoice in mini packets over the traditional one treat per door.
Rituals – Just the cutest little pop-up tree, plus the cutest little minis. You’re literally building your own ritual as you go. Smart.
Ilchester Cheese – One for the foodies, and actually a world first. 9 cheeses, 3 chutneys, and endless combinations. Need I say more?
Missoma – Ok it’s only 12 days, but it’s worth the shorter Advent for the absolute joy in every gold numbered box. On which note, the packaging is ready and waiting to be re-purposed as a jewellery slash makeup slash everything box allll year round.
Giorgio Armani beauty – Seriously luxe round-up of Armani’s beauty best bits – fragrance, skincare and make-up, all neatly presented in signature red and gold.
Drinks By The Dram Craft Gin – Ideal if you’re an open-at-night kind of Advent Calendar-er. 24 wax sealed miniatures (30ml) from boutique producers and world-renowned distilleries.
Porsche – A little niche, but great if activities are more your speed. Collect everything you need to build an iconic replica Porsche just in time for Christmas.
Net-a-Porter – Beauty fan but don’t fancy a 25-day commitment to one brand? NAP’s got you covered. Their 2022 calendar is their biggest ever, pulling from the year’s greatest hits list from Charlotte Tilbury lips to Claus Porto candles. As if December needed any greater excitement, here it is.
Chilli Hot Sauce – You’re either a hot sauce person or you’re not. And if you are, this will be HUGE for you. 12 flavours, each showing up twice over the 24-day period.
Mylee – Slightly less mystery involved since the doors are shaped to fit the treat inside, but still just as fun. 12 carefully curated Mylee nail products, from top and base coats to nails colours, to mani tools.
