Countdown to Christmas

As it's the 1st of December tomorrow I thought I'd share some of my favourite luxury advent calendars perfect for counting down to Christmas in style! 

This exclusive beauty calendar features a mini treat for each day. Following its popularity last year it flew off the shelves as soon as it was launched! The little luxuries include Lancome Hypnose Mascara, Kiehl's Creme de Corps and YSL Belle D'Opium eau de parfum.

Liberty's chocolate calendar features a traditional design displaying their iconic store in London.

Treat yourself to a delicious luxury chocolate calendar from Fortnum & Mason's, each chocolate is wrapped in gold foil and packaged in numbered boxes to countdown to the big day.

This cute wooden house has 24 windows for you to hide your own treats behind. The calendar can be used year after year to countdown to Christmas. 

Open the windows on this special calendar from Harrod's to reveal a glass decoration behind each one to hang on your tree in the run up to Christmas. 

Celebrate the countdown to Christmas with a these handmade iced biscuits. They feature festive shapes and include Fortnum inspired designs such as hampers and champagne bottles. 

Do you have an advent calendar this year?
How are you counting down to Christmas?



  1. The Selfridges one is awesome! I wish I could afford one of those...maybe one day. I've got a Thorntons one though, which is a great alternative!

  2. @Winnie Ahh me too! I'm looking forward to opening the 1st window on my dairy milk one in the morning! :) x

  6. These advent calendars do look amazing, but I'll be honest, I would miss my Cadburys one! x

  7. As amazing as the makeup one is it doesn't beat chocolate!x

  8. Advent calendars were always my favorite growing up! My mom and my aunts sewed me and my cousins our own and put a little gift like gum or bath salts in for each day. Great post :)


  9. Waaaa! These put my advent calendar to shame. I do have to say I prefer a picture one but my mum treated me to a cheeky chocolate one this year! xxxx

  10. I've heard of advent calendars, but never ever had one before. do you get a treat each day? because if you do, then I want one.

  11. That is pretty genius with the beauty calendar.. I want one now! Ha

    Love! ~Angel

  12. I really love the Lancome calendar from Selfridges. I'm not one to spend a lot of money on beauty but I'd have definitely brought that. Shame they sold out :( Have you seen their crackers too? They look amazing but don't think my family would appreciate them. Terrible shame.
