A long, long, long time ago, when I was a child... (okay so we're not talking Bethlehem era, but you get the idea, it was a while back) advent calendars were pretty basic. And there wasn't much choice.
Roll on a few years (quite a few years if you're being picky) and now there are a whole host of amazing advent calendars. I don't know if people have just got more creative or if it's just that the internet has opened up world of creativity we never knew existed. Either way, we're spoilt for choice for advent calendars.
Here are 8 of my favourites I've seen this year, actually all of these are available to buy on notonthehighstreet.com, or you can use them as inspiration!
I hope you enjoy looking through this gorgeous little lot of inspiring advent calendars. I know my kids absolutely love the build up of Christmas which all kicks off with the official opening of day one. Let me know in the comments if you've seen any others that have taken your fancy!
