Countdown to Christmas

Monday, December 1, 2014

Happy December 1st everyone! The official Countdown to Christmas has begun and I love celebrating that countdown daily with fantastically fun Advent calendars. These calendars have 24 hidden surprises, one for each day until Christmas. After waiting too long last year, I went overboard this year and bought three different Advent calendars. I can't wait to open up new surprises each day. Check out some of the fun Countdown to Christmas options below!
The Benefit Cosmetics Advent Calendar was actually the very first Advent calendar I got this year. My sister grabbed it for me at a Benefit event she went to in November, knowing I had been super bummed to have missed out on it last year! It's got the perfect, travel sized editions of my favorite Benefit products tucked away in each day and I so can't wait to start opening it. It sold out pretty quickly last year, but you can still get your hands on it online at Sephora.com.

Another one of the calendars that I picked up this year was the Yankee Candle Christmas Countdown Calendar. If you're candle obsessed and Christmas obsessed, then this is the perfect Countdown calendar for you. It has small tea candles in each day in varying Yankee Candle Christmas scents. I can never get enough Christmas scents and I can't wait to start using my Christmas candles all around the house. 

The last calendar that I picked up for this year was the Lego City Advent Calendar. If someone tell you that this one is only for children, then phooey on them. This is one of the coolest Advent calendars I've ever seen as each box opens to a little lego character or set piece to put together to create a snowy Christmas scene. I can't wait to pop open each door and bring a little winter wonderland to life.

Another Advent Calendar that I had my eye on is perfect for the polish lover in your life. The Ciate Mini Manor Advent Calendar  has 24 mini polishes in every shade you could want for the Winter and Christmas season. If you were looking to add a few more pretty polishes to your collection, then I would definitely grab this one!

The Best of the Body Shop Advent Calendar is an in store exclusive at the Body Shop and contains an array of travel sized portions of your favorite Body Shop products. If you travel a lot and love using The Body Shop, then this is the perfect Calendar for you. I almost got this one too, but I thought it was going a little overboard to have four different Advent calendars to open!

Are you getting an Advent Calendar this year? Which one do you prefer? Share with me in the comments below!
