13 Unique Non-Chocolate Advent Calendars For Adults

Advent calendars are one of the most exciting parts of the holiday season. What’s better than waking up every morning to a brand new door to open in your advent calendar, that also marks a day closer to Christmas! πŸŽ„

However, chocolate advent calendars can get a bit boring year after year. I mean, when you’re a child, I guess chocolate every day all day is probably dreamland. But, for adults, I feel we can do better than chocolate. First off, as an adult, you can literally just go buy yourself a chocolate cake, grab a spoon and have at it -even if it’s not your birthday! No one will bat an eyelid because you are an adult.

So, for this year, I decided to look for all the best non-chocolate advent calendars worth buying this Christmas. None of these are sponsored -they’re just unique advent calendars I found and wanted to share with you. 😊
