We absolutely love Christmas and every year we try and find the best advent calendars 2018. In this guide you will find kids advent calendars, advent calendars for beauty lovers, alcoholic advent calendars, DIY advent calendars plus more.
As most people we always eat too much at Christmas time we tend to buy advent calendars with small gifts in rather than the chocolate ones.

14 of the Best Kids Advent Calendars 2018
Well I don’t think this Lego Star Wars advent calendar needs any introduction. This is the one we have purchased for Freddie for the last 2 years.
This is only a 12 day advent calendar but it was too amazing to leave out! As it is only £7 it is super value for money also.
If your kids love art and craft this Crayola activity calendar would be perfect.
I have not seen anything like this before, and I think it is such a lovely idea for a little girl.
This is not my cup of tea, however, I know a number of kids and adults in fact who would just love this! Maybe a good one for the kids to give to their mums or dads?
Over £40 worth of Smiggle stationery for only £22.50 this is a great kids advent calendar.
10 of the Best Beauty Advent Calendars 2018
I will start with a beauty treat for men, mainly as it is the only one I have seen!
I LOVE this! Stuart has a huge beard that he is very proud of, and spends more time grooming it than he does anything else!
Now we love Latest in Beauty and you can read our review of one of their subscription boxes. This box like all of their monthly subscriptions are excellent value for money. This beauty subscription box only costs £60 but the contents are worth £225!!!
This is the second most expensive beauty advent calendar, but I absolutely love the box. This includes 25 miniature bottles of ESPA products.
This cowshed beauty advent calendar includes 24 miniature Cowshed treats for hands, hair, face and body.
Yes I love Molton Brown, this includes soap, moisturiser and perfume so this is just perfect for any woman. But this is the most expensive beauty advent calendar at £140, personally I don’t the box is that amazing, but the products speak for themselves.
This Liz Earle advent calendar only contains 12 days of Christmas.
This is one of the cheapest beauty subscription boxes coming in at less than £45. I think it is of excellent value, and who doesn’t love L’Occitane!
5 of the Best Alcohol Advent Calendars 2018
These are all full size cans / bottles so it weighs a lot!
This includes 24 miniature bottles of fizz, whats not to like!!
This includes 24 mini wine bottles! Perfect for those who like a glass of wine with their evening meal.
This contains one full sized bottle of gin, plus a different tonic every day.
This contains 25 x 5ml bottle of Edinburgh gin!!
Other Adult Advent Calendars
We love Happy Socks in this house and this is probably the one I will be getting for Stuart this year. It costs £149.95, BUT it contains 24 pairs of socks! This works out at only £6.25 each which is a huge saving!
I hate coffee, BUT, Stuart absolutely loves it, which is why the Nespresso machine is only used by him. This is a great gift, and can be personalised with any name.
3 of the Best DIY Advent Calendars
I love DIY advent calendars, where you buy something once and each year you chose your favourite products to add.
As I have never hidden the fact I love wine, this is a great option for me!!! I love the fact you can fill it with your own favourite wine! So only white for me!!
This is adorable, and something you will cherish for years. This could either be for kids or a mix of gifts.
What I love about these is you could hide these around the house, or leave them in a new place when the elf on the shelf returns!
