the last-minute guide to kids christmas advent calendars

Miss IG with her very first advent

For team triplemelt the anticipation of Christmas is nine tenths of the fun. From planning the parties to shopping the stockings, the run up to the big day itself is one soul-warming whirlwind of festive ritual. In our book, the countdown is (almost) the best bit and we say HO-HO-YES to the snowballing trend for out-of-this-world children’s advent calendars. We pretend its all for the kids… But really we’re living our childhood dreams vicariously through our littles 😉

Being festive dorks each of our family advents are already hidden away, awaiting the 30th November big reveal: ELC Happyland for my toddler, Lego Star Wars for Ali’s son, Lego Friends for Ali’s daughter and Tinc stationary for Ashling’s girls. These are now mostly sold out (last few remaining!) BUT if you haven’t sorted yours yet, don’t fret! We’ve trawled the ether to source the cool calendars you can still definitely get your mitts on ready for day 1.

N.B. Advents aren’t just for kids! Share the experience with a self-indulgent beauty calendar for yourself…
