The biggest and best beauty advent calendars
Fort Kinnaird is a beauty advent calendar delight. From Marks & Spencer’s gorgeous selection (in store 26 October and featuring Benefit, Clinique and Ren) to 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. And, don’t forget, Next are serving up their 2023 calendar filled with ESPA, Clarins and Neom.
Chocolate advent calendars
Hotel Chocolat has calendars for all ages (we love cute reindeer and Santa character-filled one) including a grand £75 one; a couples’ sharing calendar and, best of all, a vegan-chocolate packed solution.
For delicious chocolate from Cadbury, Lindt and Tony’s Chocolonely plus Haribo and more, pop into Boots, WH Smith and Superdrug – 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. Head to Argos for a huge selection from Disney, Lego Star Wars and Harry Potter while Smyths Toys have Paw Patrol and Roblox. Pick up a build-your-own calendar from Hobbycraft or head to Waterstones and TK Maxx for inspired book calendars including Mr Men, the Gruffalo and Usborne.
