Alternative Advent Calendars For The Whole Family

If you're looking for a non-chocolate alternative advent calendar this year, then look no further as I've put together a list of my favourites. There is sure to be something for all the family.

I'm really surprised by the range of non-chocolate advent calendars out there. I've also found some Playmobil ones, as well as wooden ones too where you can add your own items inside for each day. There really is something for everyone!

1. Yankee Candle Calendar
This would be perfect for any candle lover! I've got my eye on one of these myself haha.

2. 12 'Beers of Christmas' Calendar
This is one for the men (or anyone who likes beer!). The 12 beers of Christmas advent contains a variety of craft beers which have been brewed in the UK. There is also an option to send a personalised, handwritten card - so this would make an ideal gift too!

3. Benefit 'Party Poppers' Calendar
This would be the perfect calendar for make-up lovers! This kit involves miniatures of popular Benefit products, such as They're Real! mascara, Hoola lipgloss and Rockateur face powder.

4. Playdoh Calendar
I think most children love Playdoh, and I'm sure they would love this alternative in the run up to Christmas.

5. V-Tech Toot Toot Drivers Calendar
If your child loves Toot Toot, this would be the ideal calendar for them to add to their collection! It includes a sleigh, Christmas decorations and more.

What advent calendars have you chosen this year?
