The countdown is officially on and there’s a calendar for everyone, whatever your vice
Can you remember when an advent calendar was no more than two pieces of card stuck together, with a few tedious Christmas characters waiting for you behind each window? No, us neither, as kids we were lucky enough to get the cheap chocolate variety, but either way, things have certainly moved on and it’s no longer the little ones having all the fun.
We’ve rounded up a selection of non-chocolate advent calendars boasting both food and drink (sometimes together) which are guaranteed to score you serious brownie points with the foodie in your life. Below you’ll find sweet, savoury, boozy and more saintly options, ranging from 12 doors, to the full 25. After all, if there’s ever a time to indulge, it’s December, and what better treat than a daily dose of your favourite food or drink.
It’s also worth mentioning that historically the most popular advent calendars have sold out fast, so if you’re keen to get your hands on one, don’t leave it too late.
