The Perfect Advent Calendar For The Person Who Wants Nothing 

There are plenty of reasons to get excited about Christmas: food, family, celebrations, a general feeling of hope and humanity in the air… But perhaps the one that always gets me the giddiest is the pageantry of the good ol’ advent calendar and this year we have scoured the internet for the best out there and compiled them in a list. And all of this, just for you… 

Ask anyone out on the street what their least favourite part of the Christmas season is and I can guarantee that ‘the shopping’ will always come first in the polls (perhaps closely followed by ‘the cooking and cleaning but that’s a topic for another time). 

However, I think many of us are also guilty of the old lazy sock move when we’re too tired to try to think of original gift ideas. 

Well, what if I told you that you don’t have to? That’s the right: I have done it for you. Me, moi, yours truly, that is correct – I have dug around the farthest corners of the internet and I have come up with the answer. 

Advent calendars. 

How more obvious could it be? They’re beautiful and classy decorations in their own right, you get multiple presents with only one gift, and they are inherently original because there is always one out there that relates to your interests. 

I know, it’s mind-blowing. So, without further ado, here’s a list of the top Christmas advent calendars for that person who never know what to buy:
