We absolutely love Christmas and every year we try and find the best advent calendars. 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.

So here is a list of our best advent calendars for 2019.
