From The Body Shop’s Wishes & Wonders filled with top-to-toe treats (saving £109 on products) to Marks & Spencer’s gorgeous selection (in store 26 October and featuring Benefit, Clinique and Ren) via Holland & Barrett’s pampering case of Weleda and Tisserand, it’s difficult to choose which one you’ll want this year.

Head to Boots the most-wanted collections from No 7 (one was sold every 10 seconds in the first week of release last year) – there are three to choose from including minis and full-size products – you’ll also be able to get your hands on ones from Liz Earle, Soap & Glory and more.


Chocolate advent calendars


Know a chocolate lover? Leonidas creates beautiful chocolates with pralines delivered weekly from Brussels, pistachio pearls, fruit flavoured jellies and almond marzipans.

For delicious chocolate from Cadbury, Lindt and Tony’s Chocolonely plus Haribo and more, pop into WHSmith, Boots, Superdrug and Poundland – perfect for organising finds for nieces, nephews, grandkids and beyond.


Unmissable advent calendars for kids

For an advent calendar that’ll last long past Christmas, kids’ toys and books are the perfect solution. Find stationery delights at Smiggle or pick up a build-your-own calendar from Flying Tiger Copenhagen and fill it with little finds from there and Miniso. Or head to Waterstones and WHSmith for inspired book calendars for all ages including Mr Men, the Gruffalo and Usborne.


Unlikely advent calendars for him and her

The advent calendar craze has exploded over the last few years to embrace everything from craft beer to beautiful charms via delicious food, drink and underwear. Uncover beautifully presented gifts to indulge your loved ones with ideas from Accessorize and Pandora which both have gifts filled with 12 days of beautiful jewellery.
