Alcoholic Advent Calendars

Most definitely not meant for children, these alcoholic advent calendars ensure that you don’t miss out on feeding your habit for at least the first 24 days in December. If you do want to complete the whole month, you will have to arrange provisions for the remaining days. But why would your average Joe want to drink a shot of spirit a day for 24 days straight?

The reason is obvious – there are many different types of spirit in each calendar, each packaged in its own quirky bottle – which means this alcoholic experience becomes a classy tasting, rather than quenching your insatiable thirst for the demon drink.

Available in Gin and Vodka variants.

Craft Beer Advent Calendar

I know what cynics among you are saying right now – “You could just buy a 24-pack of beer and use that”. Well, that is true, but you’d be drinking the same beer every day if you did that. So why not expand your horizons and enjoy 24 totally different beers; a new beer every single day of advent. Who knows, you might even discover your new favourite beer.

Christmas Jumper Advent Calendars

Strictly speaking, these jumpers aren’t exactly advent calendars as we know them. These don’t give gifts on any day of advent, and the grey version doesn’t even have 24 numbers on it, let alone 25.  But for what they lack in presents, they make up for in originality.

Wear one of these and you’ll be sure to be the talk of this year’s ugly christmas jumper party.
