#Ad – some items have been gifted but have no impact on this post

Christmas is fast approaching and even at the age of 34 still, have an advent calendar.  Let’s face it, it is probably the only time that we allow the whole family to eat chocolate before breakfast!

However, the market for advent calendars has changed massively over the last few years with a huge range of different choices on the market now. If you have not brought your advent yet, here is a round-up of some of the most popular ones on the market.

Smiggle advent –

Kayleigh has had a Smiggle advent for the last 3 years and she loves it. Every year she can’t wait to see what is included in the advent this year. It is her favourite shop and she loves getting some items on the calendar that you might not be able to pick up in the store.  It is currently on offer too in their Black Friday sale!
